Free Halloween fun this weekend in Vandercook

The Wheel of Doom

We’re having a bit of spooky fun at our Vandercook Branch this weekend. Our Haunted Celebration is an anniversary of the branch opening in 2005.

If you’ve got kids, and you’re looking for an excuse to get them dressed up and have some safe fun, by all means – bring them by. We’re going to have a trunk-or-treat, the Wheel of Doom (above), a costume contest for kids 13 and under, and plenty of games and activities to keep the kids occupied.

It’s all free, of course, because that’s what we do.

Head to our Haunted Celebration page to learn all the details.


$500 gas card winner had three entries



This month, Alan C. of Jackson learned that the old adage, “three times the charm,” really holds up.

That’s because, after referring his three kids, Alan is American 1’s September $500 gas card winner.

When Alan was opening new membership accounts for his three kids last month, Kristen Lewis at our Argyle Branch filled out the GreenBack referral cards for each child. Those three entries obviously improved his chances of winning.

“What are the chances of winning something like this, even with three entries?” Alan asks. “I sure didn’t expect it.”

The gas cards will “help considerably,” Alan says, no matter how many highs or lows the price of gas experiences.

Congratulations to Alan. There are just a few more months left in our membership referral contest. Visit our GreenBack page to learn more!

Sign up for e-statements, win an iPod Touch.

Win an iPod Touch

Pssst…you should head over to our E-statement page and see what you could win if you sign up for e-statements this week.

Oh, wait. The headline probably gives it away, doesn’t it? Oh well.

But really, if you’re not already signed up for American 1’s free e-statement service, you should be. You get your statement faster, you can view it anywhere you go, and if you don’t open your statement every single month anyway, e-statements make sense for everyone involved.


Two membership winners for June.

American 1 membership winner

Last month was kind of a milestone: we had a Silver and a Bronze winner for our membership referral contest.

Alexis R. of Jackson (above) came in to open an account with her friend, Emily, and entered her name as the referral on a whim. As luck would have it, Alexis was picked as our $25 dollar winner in June.

“I was pretty excited,” Alexis says. “I’ve never won a contest before.”


American 1 $50 winner

Maricela Orozco of Jackson (above, with daughter Alondra) opened up an Eagle Earners account for all three of her kids. The shotgun approach worked, earning her a $50 cash prize.

Congratulations to both of our June membership winners. Only one more drawing to go before our big $1,000 cash prize is awarded, so keep referring new members and the winner could be you.
