Save to Win Share Certificate Participants Celebrate Big Wins

How would an extra $5,000 change your life? Would you use it to boost your savings, tackle debt, put it towards a down payment, or perhaps take that bucket list vacation to an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica? One SESLOC member recently got a call letting them know the good news that they won $5,000 in the January Save to Win 12-month Share Certificate¹  prize drawing — the first time a SESLOC member won the coveted quarterly grand prize shared amongst credit unions participating in the Save to Win program.

But that’s not all — 26 SESLOC members won a combined $7,300 in prizes in the recent drawing, including another big winner of $1,000. How would you react to such a surprise windfall? Well, Anthony quite literally jumped for joy when he heard the good news and expressed that he never wins anything. In addition to Anthony and the $5,000 grand prize winner, one member won $500, another won $250, and 22 members won $25 each. 

With the Save to Win Share 12-month Share Certificate, every $25 in account balance increase at month-end automatically enters you in a monthly and quarterly prize drawing for a chance to win prizes from $25 to $5,000 (up to 100 entries per month). We’re thrilled that our members are lucky — since we launched the Save to Win Share Certificate in November 2019, our members have won a combined $37,500 in prizes. Plus, every Save to Win account holder is a winner since they get to watch their savings grow and earn dividends on their deposits. 

We know that finding the motivation to save money can be difficult, and that saving for emergencies or annual expenditures, such as vacations, taxes or holiday gifts, means denying immediate gratification for the promise of long-term goals. That’s why we introduced the Save to Win Share Certificate. This account helps you develop healthy savings habits in a fun with the added bonus of a chance to win prizes (talk about motivation). In addition to fostering the habit of saving, one of the best features is the ability to withdraw one time during the 12-month period (a $25 withdrawal penalty fee applies) in case you need to access your funds.
