BADEN, Penn. – Ambridge Area FCU had an online contest at its Facebook page in an effort to reach the younger generation.
The winner was part of that younger audience the credit union wanted to reach through this promotion, and she joined the credit union because of it.
Each week during the school year, a question was posted on Ambridge Area’s Facebook page, and a winner was selected after all responses were reviewed. Anyone could answer the weekly questions, regardless of membership. Weekly prizes varied from deposits or free memberships to gift cards. At the end of each quarter, a winner was selected from all the entries made by members.
Quarterly prizes included an iPod Shuffle, an Amazon Kindle Fire, a nook, and Kennywood Park tickets. At the end of the promotion, one grand prize winner was chosen from all of the weekly winners who were members, and received a new iPad 2.
The credit union said it has decided to bring this promotion back in fall.
