Altura Credit Union names final two debit card winners for 2014

Residents of Perris and Riverside Each Win $500

RIVERSIDE, CA (January 14, 2015) — The two final monthly winners of Altura Credit Union’s 2014 “Better Ways to Win” debit card campaign were recently named.  Riverside resident George Gemberling and Eddy Flores from Perris each won $500. Both were entered to win by simply using their Altura Visa® Debit Card to make a purchase.

Gemberling, a member of Altura since 2009 and Deputy Director with the County of Riverside, is the November winner. Flores, a 20-year Altura member, was selected in the December drawing. In addition to her own account, she has opened accounts at Altura for each of her three children. She was extremely excited when she learned of her win.

The year-long campaign was created to build awareness of all the conveniences of an Altura Visa Debit Card. Each monthly winner from 2014 will have a chance to win an Audi A4 in a drawing set for Feb. 12.

Altura Credit Union’s products and services are available to its members, although membership was not required to submit an entry in this campaign. Individuals can join Altura for a one-time membership fee of $10.  Membership is open to persons who live, work, attend school or worship in Riverside and San Diego counties and selected cities in San Bernardino and Orange counties.  As a credit union, Altura is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members.
