Ideal CU ‘Use & Win’ Monthly Debit Card Payout Now Over $18K

Debit Winner Stephanie Smidt

(Woodbury, MN – June 5, 2018) – Ideal Credit Union member Stephanie Smidt and her family had been raising money to bring their baby daughter home from China when she was randomly selected as the winner of September’s $1,000 “Use & Win” Debit Card Giveaway. The Smidts were just nine days away from boarding a plane to pick up the newest addition to their family when they got the news. “Thank you so much Ideal CU for helping us bring our daughter home!!! This money is such a blessing to our family!”

Other winners have used the funds to help pay for tuition, car repairs, bills, summer fun and much more! Since the program’s inception in January of 2017, Ideal CU has given away over $18,000 in the “Use & Win” Debit Card promotion. The popular monthly giveaway was so successful it got a reboot in 2018.

Ideal CU Personal Checking members age 18 and older receive one (1) entry for each qualifying Ideal CU Debit Card transaction completed during the month. Transactions include signature (debit) and POS (PIN-based). Eligible cards include a personal Ideal CU Cash & Check Card, My Rewards™ Gold Debit Card or My Rewards™ Platinum Debit Card. Qualifying transactions earn one entry for each purchase. The more times the card is used for everyday purchases, the greater the chances of winning. It's that easy!

Random drawings are conducted once a month for the promotional period, which runs through December 2018 from all eligible entries received for each drawing. Winners are chosen on the first Wednesday of each month. More details and official rules can be found at https://www.idealcu.com.
