Participants could earn up to three entries each by:

Participants who entered the sweepstakes but didn’t win cash prizes can still access a variety of free resources from Bankrate. These tools are available to any Bankrate user who chooses to create an account, and can help you manage your money by monitoring daily rate trends or getting matched with the right credit card.

One such money management tool is myMoney, which allows you to create a financial account on the Bankrate site to connect your bank, credit card and loan accounts for a comprehensive view of your finances. Another resource is the myLearning section, which offers free courses on budgeting, student loans and building credit. Also available in this section are quizzes that can help increase financial literacy.

Bankrate congratulates the five winners of the Drop Your Debt Sweepstakes and invites readers to check out its suite of personal finance tools and learning content.
