Credit unions interested in Lucky Savers, the popular program that allows members of participating credit unions to win money while they save, are reminded that registration closes Monday, Aug. 31.
Credit unions that are new to the program will need to fully execute a contract and provide required implementation documents to the New York Credit Union Association by Monday in order to start their program on Oct. 1.
Lucky Savers helps advance the credit union mission of “people helping people” by providing members with a way to build good savings habits with the added excitement of more traditional games of chance.
“It truly is a feel-good product that you can offer your members, that pretty much runs itself after the initial implementation,” said Kelly Pfeiffer, assistant manager of Western New York Federal Credit Union.
Other credit unions agree. “Visions has been a part of the program since the beginning,” said Mandy DeHate, Visions FCU AVP of marketing. “The Lucky Savers program adds a little fun into our typical product offerings and we always look forward to seeing who our next winner will be!”
Luke Heptig, marketing and events specialist at CFCU Community Credit Union, said Lucky Savers is “a great way to improve your personal connections to your members, while providing a great product.”
Credit unions are also invited to view a complimentary, informational on-demand recording of a recent webinar and panel discussion.
The webinar includes an overview of the Lucky Savers program presented by the Association’s director of member relations, Chris Pajak, followed by a facilitated Q&A session with four panelists from credit unions of varying size and location who have been running successful Lucky Savers programs at their credit unions. Viewers will also learn best practices and tips for a successful program.
