The inaugural Saver’s Sweepstakes™ drawing produced four winning members at UnitedOne Credit Union.
Bao L. was one of 16 individuals to win $100 in the Saver’s Sweepstakes statewide drawing. Meanwhile, Kathryn V., Ava S. and Denise L. each won $25 in the drawing held only for UnitedOne members.
UnitedOne is one of 14 credit unions in the state that launched Saver’s Sweepstakes savings accounts in September, resulting in 1,409 members opening accounts and saving a combined $180,797.67.
Saver’s Sweepstakes is a new program offered by The Wisconsin Credit Union League that encourage consumers to save by giving them chances to win prize money each month through prize-linked savings accounts. The inaugural drawing on International Credit Union Day included a $5,000 winner.
Unlike buying a lottery ticket, all of the money a member deposits into a Saver’s Sweepstakes account remains theirs. The funds for monthly, quarterly and annual prizes come from the pool of participating credit unions. The statewide prizes range from $100 to $5,000.
In addition to statewide prizes, UnitedOne is offering members-only prize drawings each month to those individuals who open and save with a Saver’s Sweepstakes account.
Saver’s Sweepstakes account holders earn an entry into the monthly drawing when they increase their savings balance by $25 (up to six entries per month).
