GMAC Financial Services Names SmartEdge Sweepstakes Winners

Email   small font medium font large font

GMAC Financial Services (GMAC) today announced the four grand prize winners of its "2007 GMAC SmartEdge Get the Edge Instant Win & Sweepstakes." The sweepstakes winners were chosen in a random drawing from more than one million entries submitted at the GMAC SmartEdge Web site, which promotes financial literacy to help consumers make informed financial decisions.

The winners are Cheryl Dye of Greenfield, Ind., who won a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt; Amy Freund of St. Louis Park, Minn., who won a 2008 Chevrolet HHR; Greta Kirby of Carthage, Tenn., who won a 2008 Pontiac G6; and, Catherine Gilbert of East Hartford, Conn., who won $10,000 cash.

"I played the trivia questions on the Web site about buying and leasing a car, so I could enter the sweepstakes, and I had a gut feeling I was going to win a car," said Kirby. "I am thrilled! This is the dream of a lifetime!"

The sweepstakes was sponsored by GMAC SmartEdge, GMAC's comprehensive financial education program that aims to improve people's understanding of budgeting, credit, banking, vehicle and home financing, and insurance. GMAC SmartEdge promotes financial literacy through its Web site and local seminars occurring across the country.

"On behalf of GMAC, I would like to extend congratulations to the lucky winners," said Don Ferguson, director of GMAC SmartEdge for GMAC. "We hope that in addition to winning, these winners will be able to apply what they've learned about good personal finance habits to their daily lives."

GMAC recently expanded the GMAC SmartEdge curriculum to include information on banking services, homeowners and automobile insurance options, and financing a home. In 2008, GMAC hosted more than 2,300 SmartEdge events and seminars in the United States.
