SpringCoin to Pay Off $500 Debt for One Lucky Wise Bread Reader
Editor's Note: This contest is over. Congratulations to Jessica for winning $500! Please check your email Jessica to claim the prize.
SpringCoin (formerly known as DebtEye during beta) is an online debt relief coaching service that helps you get out of debt quickly. Founded by three certified credit counselors, SpringCoin has received many positive reviews. Mashable called it one of the 5 "must try products from Y-Combinator.” New York Times described it as "Mint.com for the indebted." (For those unfamiliar with Y-Combinator, it is responsible for help launching famous companies like Reddit, Dropbox, Loopt, and Scribd).
To celebrate Financial Literacy Month, SpringCoin is helping Wise Bread readers take the first step in getting out of debt with the following giveaways:
- 100% free lifetime SpringCoin account (value of $96 per year) to the first 300 Wise Bread readers who sign up via this link in April. (See the benefits of this service)
- Pay off the credit card debt for one randomly selected Wise Bread reader up to $500.

How will a free SpringCoin account help you fight debt? With each account you’ll get:
- A detailed analysis of your personal finance, and a customized monthly payment plan just for you.
- A hands-free budgeting tool that provides automatic tracking and categorization of your spending so you’ll know where your money is going.
- Personalized spending insights. Just like how Netflix can figure out what type of movies you like, SpringCoin can tell you a lot about your spending pattern. It can get extremely targeted and say, “It looks like you spent $100 at Old Navy, next time use this 10% off coupon.”
- 24/7 bill alerts and handy payment calendar to remind you of due dates and so you can avoid late fees.
- Earn points for completing weekly quizzes to increase your financial IQ.
- Taking extra steps (like making extra payment on debt) earns you points, which give you a chance to win rewards like gift cards.
While a SpringCoin service package usually costs $96 per year, you’ll be getting this 100% free forever if you sign up now using this link before April 30th.
