Wright-Patt Credit Union’s new Save to Win® account allows members to build their savings with a chance to win big

WPCU is the only credit union in Ohio to offer Save to Win account

BEAVERCREEK, OH (May 1, 2024) — Fifty percent of Americans buy a lottery ticket once a year (NPR, 2023). With one-in-a-million odds of getting rich, saving that money is safer and a more responsible way to build savings – but not as fun. Wright-Patt Credit Union® (WPCU®) is the largest credit union in the country, and the only one currently in Ohio to offer Save to Win®, a prize-linked savings account that helps consumers save money while earning chances to win cash prizes up to $10,0001.

“Americans are saving less. More than half of Americans can’t cover a $1,000 emergency expense (Gillespie, 2024). We want to ensure that Wright-Patt Credit Union members have a way to not only reach their savings goals, but also enjoy the thrill of potentially winning some extra cash,” said Tim Mislansky, President and CEO at Wright-Patt Credit Union. “This is one more way we’re helping our members build their savings and improve their financial flexibility and freedom.”

By opening a Save to Win account2, rather than earning dividends, every $25 a member saves earns them an entry into monthly, quarterly and annual drawings for a chance to win cash prizes1. Members can win up to $10,000 from the $114,625 Wright-Patt Credit Union member-only prize pool in 2024, an extra benefit to local members to add to their savings1. There are also $117,000 in national prizes up for grabs this year.

As of April 1, 2024, both current and new members of Wright-Patt Credit Union can open a Save to Win account2 if the eligibility requirements are met. Members can open a Save to Win account online, by scheduling an appointment at a Member Center or by calling the WPCU Member Help Center at (800) 762-0047.2
