Did you start 2018 saddled with some debt? We get it. And we have lots of great ideas to help you send it packing. More on that in a minute.

But first, what if someone handed you $2,500 to take a chunk out of that burden? That wouldn’t stink, right?

One of our trusted partners, Debt.com, is holding a drawing for $2,500. The contest ends January 31, 2018.

This is not gambling — we recommend against that since it’s rigged against you. This is a no-cost, luck-of-the-draw sweepstakes. You could score $2,500.

We like Debt.com — I’ve known the owner for many years — so we’re happy to help them publicize their sweepstakes. Click here to enter.

May Lady Luck smile on you!

Whether you are the winner or not, we are here for you, with articles and tools to help manage finances and conquer debt.

If you’re not checking out our Solutions Center, you should. It’s a place to improve your finances by shopping for a better deal on credit cards, mortgages, savings accounts, cellphone plans and other financial products. It’s also a place where you can get help and advice with everything from Social Security to debt.

That’s where partner Debt.com comes in.

Since we don’t issue credit cards, do debt counseling or offer mortgages, we partner with other companies that do. We simply find the best partners for each category, put them together in our Solutions Center and provide a one-stop shop for all of your needs. In exchange for sending them business, in some instances they pay us a small referral fee, which, along with advertising, is how we keep our lights on.

If you’re the contest type, this drawing is a good one — and entering only takes a few seconds. (Time is running out!) But whatever the outcome, you can get help with your debt with tools that Debt.com offers in our Solutions Center.

Good luck!
