It was a dark and stormy car sale

Spring Car Sale - Dave secures the tent

Last weekend’s spring vehicle sale, held April 24 and 25 at Sears in Jackson, was super-successful. We kept $1 million in the community, and almost 100 members were able to finance quality vehicles from six local dealerships.

But then Saturday, the storms hit.

Dave Lewis (above), our ATM specialist, worked with several other employees to secure our tents before the flash thunderstorms hit.

We evacuated the tents twice, with employees and shoppers heading into Sears to stay dry (above).

All the action was captured in photos, and you can see them at our Flickr photo gallery.

Thanks to the entire community for supporting the sale. Everyone who financed a vehicle that weekend took advantage of our big loan rebate – plus a trip to our famous cash machine.

See you at our next sale in September!

Spring Women’s Expo 2009 winners

Women's Expo - Theresa and Ricco

We’re proud to announce the three winner’s of the Gold Crown Jewelers prize drawing from our Spring Women’s Expo, as well as our two other prize winners.

First prize, a topaz pendant on a 14k gold rope chain, goes to Theresa Gollakner from Jackson (above). Theresa has been to many American 1 Women’s Expos, and was amazed to hear our phone call telling her she was the winner.

“I was glad I was sitting down,” she said.

The best part? We gave her Gold Crown’s prize on her birthday.

Women's Expo - Cindy, Ricco, and Judy

Next up are Cindy Jane Vass, our third prize winner (left), and Judy Goodall (right), our second prize winner.

Cindy won a pair of amethyst earrings. This expo was Cindy’s first. Her mom, who recently moved back to Michigan from Florida, told Cindy about our expo – and they came together.

Judy won a 10k gold fashion ring. Judy likes to take her sister to our Spring Women’s Expo because it falls right around her sister’s birthday.

Ashley E.: Women's Expo $200 winner

Ashley Erwin from Concord (above) won our $200 shopping spree. Ashley won just by entering her name into our drawing.

Nancy F.: Women's Expo $100 gas card

Nancy Fowler (above) won our $100 gas card drawing by riding the shuttle bus to the expo.

Nancy came to the expo to shop, and spent four hours browsing through the vendors.

Congratulations to all our prize winners. Check out more photos on our Flickr page.

Gold Crown Jewelers have supported the last two women’s expos with fabulous jewelry prizes, and this spring’s event is no different.

American 1 is also offering a $200 shopping spree for one lucky woman who attends the expo. To enter to win, just make sure you get an entry ticket on your way in.

See you on Saturday!


Spring sale a success.

Financing at the spring sale.

Just a quick post this morning before we clean up and unpack from this weekend’s super-successful used vehicle sale.

We want to thank the hundreds of people who stopped out at Sears on Friday and Saturday. We gave out $100 gas cards, trip to the cash machine, and lots and lots of hot dogs. American 1 knows how to put on a used vehicle sale, but we sure couldn’t do it without the community support.

Were you there? Did you grab a vehicle? Let us know in the comments!

Perhaps you’ve heard?

If you’ve stopped into our branches, waited in line at a drive-through, or browsed around our web site, I’m sure you know our spring sale is this Friday and Saturday out at Sears in Jackson.

But here’s another reminder!

Check out our sale page for the full scoop.  Even if you think you’re not looking for a used vehicle, stop by the sale anyway.  Just by showing up you can enter to win our $1,000 gas card drawing.  And be sure to stop by our concession stand and grab a hot dog from me.  I’ll be grilling them up as usual.

Bring the kids, too, because we’ll have activities for them.  Who knows?  You could find yourself test driving that summer vehicle you’ve always wanted.

See you this weekend!
