E&A Credit Union Rewards Teen Saver with New Laptop Computer
Courtney Klaas, a senior at Cros-Lex High School was pleasantly surprised on Tuesday, March 12th by E&A Credit Union’s Marketing department. It was in the middle of her 1:30 class when the Marketing team busted in the classroom to announce Courtney as their first Bonus Bills Grand Prize winner and presented her with a brand new laptop computer. Courtney’s mom, Sheila, a teacher at Cros-Lex High was also there to witness the surprise. “This is so great, Courtney has been working since she was a freshman and has been very diligent on saving half of every paycheck in her Bonus Bills account,” stated Sheila.
Courtney’s savings plan paid off. E&A Credit Union’s Bonus Bills account is a teen savings account that encourages savings by awarding monthly gifts cards and the grand prize of a new laptop. The more they save each month the greater their chances are for winning. Every $25 net increase to their monthly balance gets them an entry for the monthly gift card drawings and goes toward the grand prize at the end of the year. “This is our way of encouraging younger people to develop good savings habits which will help them with their financial future,” stated Scott Babin, E&A Credit Union CMO.
