$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!

News from the August car sale

August Sale - Sunny lot

Check out pictures from our August car sale at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. For once, the weather cooperated and we had a nice weekend.

Also, congratulations to Karen Baker of Jackson – our $1,000 shopping spree winner from the sale. Karen purchased a Chevy Impala at the sale (“It rides like a dream,” she says), and opted for $500 in Walmart gift cards, $250 in Jackson Crossing gift cards, and $250 to the Westwood Mall.

Busy weekend in Jackson

Rose Parade - Follow me

Summer is, typically, a busy season for American 1. We host a bunch of summer community events – and 2010 is no different.

But this weekend is especially busy: we have both our Summer Sales Event on Friday and Saturday and the Rose Parade on Sunday.

Now that’s a crazy weekend.

At the sale, we invited dependable local dealerships to bring 200 of their best used vehicles on Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5 at the Sears parking lot in Jackson. Just in time to kick off your summer fun season.

The Rose Festival activities start on Saturday, but we’re proud of the Rose Parade on Sunday, June 6 starting at 1 p.m. in downtown Jackson. The parade winds its way down Greenwood Ave. and Fourth St. to Ella Sharp Park, where we kick off summer with the Party in the Park. The whole weekend is a celebration of Jackson, and a neat way to see local businesses and organizations show their creative side with all the floats.

If you’re in town this weekend, join us at both events!

Fall sale starts tomorrow.



Tomorrow our Fall Used Vehicle Sale kicks off at Sears. These sales are big events for us, and no one does a car sale like American 1.

To prepare, we’ve kicked off our Simple Loan plan. Plus we’re having two chances to win a $500 gas card, for up to $1,000 in gas. Who can’t use that these days?

A few things to keep in mind if you’re heading to the sale:

  • Get pre-approved – it saves a bunch of time when you’re ready to finance
  • Test drive it – just to make sure you like it
  • Trade-ins are welcome – so bring what you have
  • Even if you’re not “in the market,” stop by the sale – we’ve got tons of food and prize giveaways
  • Warm up your hands – you’ll need them for our famous Cash Vault (we bought a new one!)
  • Bring the whole family – we’ll keep the kids entertained
  • Complete your Simple Loan plan – and watch how easy the sale goes when you get there

We’ll see you Friday and Saturday at the sale!

American 1 Event Center?

It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

If you picked up this weekend’s Jackson Citizen Patriot, you may have read about American 1 sponsoring the county fairground event center.

Well it’s true. It will now be the “American 1 Event Center,” and we’re super excited about being the first major sponsor.

It’s a 10-year deal, meaning we’re giving back to Jackson to the tune of $112,500. We’ll make sure the 13,903-square foot facility will feature new signage and more community-focused events.

We have hosted tons of events at the Event Center over the years: Kids’ Fest, vehicle sales, many of the Women’s Expos, and the Paws & Claws Expo. It only made sense to get involved.

And we’re putting a no-surcharge ATM inside. Can’t beat that.

Look for more news and new event opportunities as they come along. And welcome to the American 1 Event Center.

Spring used vehicle sale this weekend.

Roz prepares to do some financing.

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!
