AlturaCredit Union Member Uses Debit Card – Wins $500

RIVERSIDE, CA (April 8, 2013) – Altura Credit Union Member Helen Carrera recently won $500 just for using her Altura Visa® Debit Card to make a purchase.  Altura created this promotion to get the word out about the convenience of its Visa Debit Card.  Not only can it be used to withdraw cash, but it’s great for everyday purchases.

With Altura’s ‘You’re Gonna Love This Card!’ promotion, every time an Altura Credit Union Member makes a purchase using their Altura Debit Card they are entered for a chance to win a $500 cash prize.  The more a Member swipes a card for purchases, the more times they are entered to win.  One winner will be drawn each month through December.

Carrera won the February drawing.  A member for 10 years, she first heard about Altura from a neighbor who raved about how much she loved the credit union. Based on that recommendation, Carrera joined and says she “has loved it ever since.”  A school district retiree, Carrera is still busy raising her teen-age granddaughter.  She was thrilled with her win and plans to use the money to purchase a new bed for her granddaughter.

To be eligible for this promotion, members need an Altura Visa Debit Card and a checking account.  They also must register their card through Altura’s website to participate in the promotion.
