May and June vehicle sale winners

Danielle is our May winner

Congratulations to Danielle Lenz – our May 2010 vehicle sale grand prize winner. Danielle won $1,000 in gas cards at our Jackson Co. Fairgrounds sale.

Unfortunately her 2008 Chevy Cobalt was totalled soon after she financed it at the sale. But between insurance and American 1’s GAP protection, she recouped the costs. Now she’s shopping for another vehicle.

Nick Howard

Nick Howard purchased a Pontiac G6 at our most recent June sale. Nick won our summer fun package that included Detroit Tigers box seats, Cedar Point tickets, a $100 gas card, restaurant gift cards, and free rounds of golf – and more.

“Spend a little, get a little,” Nick says. “I was pretty excited.”

Congratulations to both of our car sale winners!

Super Sale - $1,000 gas card winner

Congratulations to Amy Pollard, our Fall Vehicle Super Sale $1,000 gas card winner.

Amy financed a Hyundai Accent at the sale. She was looking for something with good gas mileage to get her back and forth to work near Lansing.

Now she has plenty of gas money for her commute. Congratulations, Amy!

$1,000 rebate gas card winner

A big congratulations to Dennis B. of Parma, our Rebate $1,000 gas card winner.

Dennis financed a van from Huff Auto at our spring used vehicle sale after hearing about the Rebate at an American 1 branch. Closing at the sale gave him multiple entries into the drawing.

Since his wife works in Ann Arbor, he said, the $1,000 worth of gas cards will come in handy.

“It’ll help us out,” Dennis says. “It should last a while.”

Now he has relatives asking him to drive on trips!

December 2008 membership gas card winner

A big congrats to Travis S., our December membership referral winner. Travis wins $500 worth of gas cards for referring his co-worker, Otis.

Travis told Otis that American 1 would be a great place to get a truck loan.

“American 1 is pretty good,” he told him.

For that piece of advice, Travis wins $500 worth of gas cards.

Our GreenBack group for December was the MacCready Reserve in Liberty Township. We learned about the MacCready Reserve thanks to a Jackson Citizen Patriot article. The reserve is open from dawn to dusk, even in January, for cross-country skiers and hikers – and in the summer for joggers and bikers. We had 175 new members referred to us in December, meaning we donated $350 to the reserve.

And so ends our GreenBack program. Thanks to everyone who referred a new member. Stay tuned for details on our 2009 membership promotion.


October GreenBack gas card winner

A big congratulations to our October GreenBack gas card winner, Dale A. of Jackson (above, with his wife Sharon). Dale referred a few family members last month, but it was his grandson’s referral that won him $500 in gas cards.

“That should last me at least a month,” Dale said, joking that gas prices are bound to go back up.

Win your own set of $500 gas cards this month and next by referring your friends and family members. Visit our GreenBack page to learn details.


Prize winners from the Fall Women’s Expo

We had quite a few big winners from our most recent Fall Women’s Expo, so we’re going to mention them all in this blog post.




First up in Kathleen K. (above), our $100 gas card winner. Kathleen was eligible to win because she rode our new shuttle bus system. Kathleen parked at Knight’s Steakhouse on Horton and Ferguson Rd. and rode the shuttle to the expo. “I would do it again, definitely,” she said.




Carmen W. was our $150 Shopping Spree winner. Carmen earned $150 worth of AmEx gift cards she can use to go shopping. Carmen has been attending American 1’s womens expos for years now. “We used to go when it was over at the fairgrounds,” she told me.




Next up are two of our Gold Crown Jewelers jewelry winners, Millie M. (left) and Elaine S. (right), with Paolo from GCJ.




Millie won the above ring from Gold Crown Jewelers. She said she couldn’t believe she won when we called.

“Out of 1,500 people there, who thinks they’re going to win?” she said.




Elaine (above) drove in from Grass Lake to attend her first Women’s Expo. She’ll definitely come to the spring event, she said.

“I really enjoyed my 10 minute massage,” Elaine said. She won the above gold necklace.




Martha M. (above) of Hudson was the ruby necklace winner. This was Martha’s first expo, too, and she loved how friendly all the vendors were.

“They had lots of things to offer,” she said.

Lots of congratulations to our winners, and many thanks to Gold Crown Jewelers for providing three fantastic prizes. Look for more great prizes from Paolo and the gang at our Spring Women’s Expo, coming to you Saturday, March 14.


$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!

Car sale $500 gas card winner

Gas card winner

For years now, Julie M. has dreamed of owning a Ford Mustang.

“It’s what I’ve always wanted,” she says.

Finally, at our most recent fall used vehicle sale, she found one. Julie also won $500 worth of gas cards to feed the speedster.

Julie works at Sheridan Books in Chelsea, and says the gas cards should last her at least three months (“Unless I drive a lot,” she says).

Congratulations, Julie – both on getting your dream car and winning our $500 gas card drawing!


Two members win prizes in September



When Bob Soltis’s 1988 Buick Park Avenue finally kicked the bucket, he figured the fall used vehicle sale would be a good time to get one.

“I had to put the Buick to sleep,” Soltis says. “I needed a car, so I went down to the sale.”

He found a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis he liked, and financed it through American 1’s new Simple Loan program. For that, Soltis is one of our two $500 gas card winners from the fall sale.

Soltis and his wife, Betty, have been American 1 members for decades. Soltis uses our direct deposit services for his railroad pension.

He doesn’t know how long his $500 worth of gas cards will last, but he says his six kids will see a lot of the benefit from his prize.

Congratulations, Bob!




We also had Betsy Branham win $100 worth of Sears gift cards at our recent College Mixer with K105.3. Congratulations to Betsy!

Stay tuned for more prize-winning members, coming soon.
