Enjoy a free root beer float on us

Free root beer floats!

As a treat, we’re giving away free root beer floats to anyone who stops into our branches during September.

We’re celebrating America’s car culture all month long, and the auto loan experts at American 1 are going to try out hands at being root beer float experts. We’ll see how it goes.

Stop by these branches for your free treat:

  • North St.: Thursday, Sept. 9, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., 3-5 p.m.
  • Grass Lake: Thursday, Sept. 9, 3-5 p.m.
  • Vandercook: Thursday, Sept. 9, 2-5 p.m.
  • Home Office: Friday, Sept. 10, 10 a.m. – noon, 2-4 p.m.
  • Battle Creek: Friday, Sept. 10, 2-4 p.m.
  • Hillsdale: Thursday, Sept. 16, 2-4 p.m.
  • Parnall: Friday, Sept. 17, 2-4 p.m.
  • Brooklyn: Friday, Sept. 17, 3-5 p.m.
  • Chelsea: Friday, Sept. 10, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

When you’re at the branch, be sure to vote for your favorite car company, and get pre-approved for our payment-free auto loan promotion!

Free shredding day scheduled

Good news: we scheduled a free community shredding day for Saturday, Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at our Home Office. Bring as many shred-able items as you can bring, Shred-It says.

We’ve received tons of requests for another community shredding day since our last one back in November 2008. The shredding company we tried that time, Northwest Refuse, had their shredding machine break down and they had no plans to replace it. That left us searching for another company – so we stuck with the original.

American 1 tries hard to protect our members from identity theft. A big part of that is education, and we consider our shredding days another part. You can’t get things stolen if they’re mixed in with a billion other tiny scraps of paper.

UPDATE: We’re giving away a shredder! Stop inside the Home Office for treats and identity theft information, and enter to win a cross-cut paper shredder.

Jackson Project Connect helps the homeless

If you’re homeless, living in a car, or out on the street (or know someone who is), Jackson’s Project Connect is a one-day event that can help with resources.

Project Connect’s next event takes place Friday, July 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parkside field house (2400 Fourth St.). The group is providing free lunches, haircuts, clothing, and more. Jackson Transportation Authority (JTA) is providing free rides to and from the event.

For more information about this event and project, call Kitrina or Megan at (517) 789-8735.

Fall Women's Expo - at Gold Crown Jewelers

Congratulations to the three lucky women who won Gold Crown Jewelers’ jewelry giveaway at our Fall Women’s Expo.

Fall Women's Expo - Amanda Nastally, 1st prize

Amanda Nastally, above, was our first prize winner. She opted for Gold Crown Jewelers’ heart pendant necklace.

The 2009 fall expo was Amanda’s first. She was surprised at the variety of vendors and seeing all that was there.

“I liked it,” she said. “I’ll definitely come back.”

Fall Women's Expo - Andrea Wint, 2nd prize

Andrea Wint was our second prize winner. Andrea picked the sterling silver ring with marcasite and amethyst.

She’s been to two women’s expos – March’s spring expo was her first.

“Now I’m hooked,” Andrea said. “It’s awesome.”

Fall Women's Expo - Justina Kukulka, 3rd prize

Justina Kukulka was our third prize winner. Justine earned the 14K gold two-tone earings.

Like Amanda, this fall’s event was Justina’s first women’s expo, and she enjoyed the hands-on activities.

Congratulations to all the women. For more photos from this fall’s event, head to our Flickr photo gallery. Look for more opportunities to win prizes at our Spring Women’s Expo, coming Saturday, March 13, 2010.

Hillsdale Kids' Fest

We had a great time at both June Kids’ Fest events in Jackson and Hillsdale.

Head to our Flickr site to browse through pictures from both days. We were lucky to be inside during the Jackson Kids’ Fest at Parkside – Hillsdale’s event was hot, hot, hot!

Our next Kids’ Fest is taking place at Chelsea’s Timbertown Park on Wednesday, Aug. 26.
