More Prizes for 2020 Saver’s Sweepstakes Accounts
Cash prize distributions increased for WCCU drawing and State-Wide drawing.
Since launching in May of 2019, 129 members at WCCU have saved over $50,000 in total by opening a prize-linked savings account as part of Saver’s Sweepstakes.
“Saver’s Sweepstakes is attracting many consumers to their first-ever committed savings effort. It’s a way for members to save money, and at no risk, be eligible for cash prizes when they save,” said Kevin Hauser, WCCU President. “Saver’s Sweepstakes is a risk-free way to build a rainy day account while helping make saving approachable and fun.”
So far in 2019, WCCU members have received $1,480 total in cash prizes. Looking ahead to 2020, WCCU has guaranteed over $2,000 in winnings for the Saver’s Sweepstakes Prize Pool. Due to the success of the program, the State-Wide Prize Pool has increased to $120,000, with an additional drawing added for November 2020 to celebrate the Holidays.
Saver’s Sweepstakes prizes are offered on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis – up to $5,000. Account holders can qualify for up to six chances per month for each $25 increase in their monthly balance*. Each chance has an equal opportunity of winning, as Natalie J., of Richland Center found out. She was randomly selected as a $100 Quarterly Winner in October and a $100 Monthly Winner in November! Natalie described why she opened a Saver’s Sweepstakes account, saying “It was a safe way to play the lottery, since I get to keep all the money I spend – plus I have a chance to win more!”
Kristina P., of Viroqua, was WCCU’s Annual Winner of $500, announced on International Credit Union Day. Kristina, a WCCU staff member in our Compliance Department, could hardly believe it was true. All members, even WCCU staff, have an equal chance of winning for each $25 saved in their Saver’s Sweepstakes account*.
The Annual drawing is held in October, to celebrate International Credit Union Day. All entries from October 2019 through next September will have an equal chance to win next year’s annual prizes.
Don’t miss your chance to win in 2020! The next drawing is Wednesday, January 15 for funds saved in December 2019.
