American 1 gives away $1000

Julie Stevens accepts her check


Julie Stevens was the big winner in the American 1 Credit Union $1000 drawing for loan referrals. Julie was at a local branch when she heard about the drawing. She was entered just by talking to a member service specialist about saving money on an auto loan. Julie has been a member of American 1 for over 10 years and plans to use the money to pay her energy bills. Her favorite part of being a member of American 1 is the customer service that she receives.

Lori Blythe wins $1000 from American 1












On July 25 American 1 awarded Lori Blythe with a check for $1,000. Lori was the winner of an American 1 Visa balance transfer promotion. Lori was entered into the drawing by transferring her credit card balance to an American 1 Visa card.

American 1 ran the promotion for anyone who did a credit card balance transfer over $500 from April through June.

Lori has been a member of American 1 for almost two years and loves the convenience of American 1’s locations throughout the area. Lori saw the contest on and decided to participate for a chance at the $1,000 prize.

The check was presented to Lori by American 1 board member Jerry Tremaine at American 1’s Vandercook branch on East McDevitt Avenue in Jackson.

$1000 holiday cash winner

Congratulations to Wendy Shaw of Jackson – she was our $1,000 holiday cash winner from our Winter Vehicle Sale.

Wendy financed a Ford Freestyle at the sale. “We like the van even better now,” her husband Fred said.

And indeed, Wendy couldn’t believe she was the winner when we called. But now that she has that extra $1,000, she’s using it all to go Christmas shopping for her five grandkids.

Congratulations Wendy!

Shred Day shredder winner

Congratulations to Claire Foley, our Shred Day shredder winner.

Claire stopped by our free community Shred Day to take care of some documents she had been saving. And what good timing: her home shredder just broke.

“I’ll use this shredder every day,” she said. “I want to keep it up just to reduce the clutter.”

We had about 80 people stop by the shredding event, but those people had a ton of material to shred.

Look here for any updates on future shred events!

Payment-free auto loan winner

Payment-free winner - Sarah and Lynn

A hearty congratulations to Sarah Matheny (above, with Lynn Hoag at our Brooklyn Branch) of Napoleon, Ohio – our 2010 payment-free auto loan winner.

Sarah is a member at our Brooklyn Branch. She had her 2003 Kia Spectra loan, worth $1,600, paid off by American 1.

When Lynn called Sarah with the good news, she told her to sit down.

“I thought maybe the loan didn’t go through,” Sarah says.

But now that her loan is paid off, Sarah will have one less bill to worry about as she prepares to go on maternity leave.

“It couldn’t have come at a better time,” she says.

Congratulations to Sarah and her family for the win. Last year, the Barkemas had their truck loan paid off by American 1.
