Enter to Win $2,020 with a New Checking Account

Celebrating Your Graduation

The COVID-19 pandemic transformed the school system to prioritize safety and cancelled many graduations. Though safety should come first, we recognize that it’s a real bummer to miss something as huge as your graduation.

To celebrate the class of 2020 and all students, we’re holding a drawing to give away $2,020 to 15 lucky members who were enrolled in school during the 2019-2020 school year!*

How to Enter

What better way to set yourself up for your next exciting chapter than a checking account? Open up a new checking account with us between June 15 – July 31 and you’ll be entered to win $2,020!

See Our Checking Accounts

Note that if your name is drawn, we’ll ask you to show proof that you were enrolled in school from 2019 – 2020 (or graduated in 2020), so we’ll ask to see a transcript, diploma, or certification.

School includes homeschooling, high school, community college, traditional college, graduate school, or a trade school.

We’re giving away $2,020 for each branch and our phone center, so there will be 15 winners. We’ll notify the winners in August 2020.
