Credit unions participating in the Save to Win program report a steady flow of account openings in the first weeks of the newly-minted campaign. At Piedmont Advantage Credit Union, tellers were engaging in a friendly competition aimed at sharing the advantages of the program with members.
"It's getting really, really good because everybody's starting to get a lot of them," said Brandon Ferguson, a Teller/Financial Services Officer with Piedmont Advantage. By early this week, the credit union had already amassed more than $100,000 in Save to Win share certificate deposits.
Roland Beck, a member of the credit union for 37 years, opened his Save to Win certificate earlier this month (click the link for a video interview). Beck had some money to deposit into the credit union, and elected to go with the Save to Win certificate. Beck noted that, "The interest rate was great plus the prizes they'll be offering" convinced him to open the share certificate.
Members at Piedmont Advantage and six other NC credit unions are depositing money into Save to Win share certificates in hopes of winning monthly and quarterly prizes, as well as a $30,000 grand prize at the end of the campaign. The first monthly prize winner will be chosen in mid-February.
