Saginaw, MI, August 2017 —Kay R. is the latest United Financial Credit Union members awarded for their participation the prize-linked savings program, Save to Win. For every $25 deposited into their accounts, members earn one entry into the monthly and quarterly drawings for a chance to win $25-$5,000.

She was ecstatic when we called her to let her know she won. “You’re kidding? I have won $50 a few times, but never $1,000!!” Kay loves the Save to Win Program, she likes having the chance of winning cash prizes each month, along with the larger quarterly prizes. “These winnings will be used for my grandchildrens’ tuitions and I plan on donation to three charities with what is left over.” Kay stated.

“We have supported the concept of our “Save to Win” program since 2008, when the product was developed. We stand behind the idea of helping our members improve their financial lives and ultimately creating better saving habits.” Stated Barbara Appold, United Financial Credit Union’s CEO, when asked about the Save to Win program.
