AAACU Members Win Big in 2015 Save to Win Program
In 2015, Save to Win, a nationwide program, awarded Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union (AAACU) members with more than $12,000 in prize money.
Save to Win is a prize-linked savings product designed to help low-to-moderate income people improve their financial situation and create positive saving habits. Save to Win was developed in 2009 for Michigan credit unions attracting more than 10,000 accounts in the first year. The program was then expanded to a national level in 2012 with the addition of six new states and expanding to more than 12,600 accounts.
AAACU members have been winning big since the start of the program. In 2010, an AAACU member won the grand prize of $100,000. Since then the prize structure has been divided up, adding more monthly prize winners and multiple quarterly prize winners. In 2015, we had three quarterly prize winners taking home $5,000, $1,000 and $500.
In addition to the national prize drawing, AAACU gives away $300 monthly to members who participate in the Save to Win Program.
If you would like to participate in Save to Win, join a participating credit union such as AAACU and open a 12-month Save to Win certificate with a minimum deposit of $25. For every $25 deposit made into the Save to Win certificate a member will receive one entry (up to 10 entries) into the drawing for monthly prizes.
