LIVONIA, Mich.–CU Solutions Group is reporting its Love My Credit Union Rewards program, which seeks to enhance the value of CU membership, and Sprint
have concluded their joint “CU Employee CELLebration Sweepstakes” by rewarding more than a dozen credit union employees.
The contest, which offered credit union employees a chance to win one of 15 Samsung Galaxy Note9 smartphones and the chance to win $5,000 for their credit union, was a “thank you” for the great work that credit unions and their employees do every day.
The CU Employee CELLebration Sweepstakes ran in late 2018 with participation from 160 credit unions. Credit union employees were eligible to submit a contest entry for every phone line on their personal Sprint account, with winners drawn randomly. In addition to awarding 15 Samsung smartphones, the contest presented three credit unions each with a prize of $5,000 to either use for an employee appreciation event or to donate to their charity of choice.
Credit unions awarded with a $5,000 prize included:
- 10 or fewer employees: Thornapple Credit Union in Hastings, Mich.
- 11-100 employees: HealthNet Federal Credit Union in Cordova, Tenn.
- More than 100 employees: Peach State FCU in Lawrenceville, Ga.
"The advocacy for Sprint Cash Rewards by credit union employees has led to more than $95 million deposited into credit union members’ accounts over the past two years," said David Dean, senior vice president of Marketing Solutions and Business Development at CU Solutions Group. "It’s this dedication on the front line that makes a real difference in people’s lives and we’re thrilled for this opportunity to say thank you to all of them.”
CU Solutions Group said its Love My Credit Union Rewards program offers $100 per new line on unlimited lines with Sprint and has delivered nearly $2 billion in savings on products and services to participating credit union members.
Love My Credit Union Rewards includes relationships with partners that include TurboTax, ADT and TruStage to offer credit unions a unique avenue of earning non-interest income, building member loyalty and increasing engagement, the company said.
