$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.

August Sale - Karen Baker

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.

$1,000 holiday cash winner

Congratulations to Barbara Miks of Jackson. Barb is our $1,000 holiday cash winner from December’s Winter Weather Vehicle Sale.

Barb financed a Chevy Impala at the sale, becoming a new member when she closed on her loan.

The $1,000 cash prize comes just in time, too. Barb’s son, Travis, is graduating from the Marines boot camp at the end of January. Faced with a large travel bill to San Diego, California to see him graduate, Barb was afraid she wouldn’t be able to make the trip.

“Now I get to go,” she says. “It was meant to be.”

Barb was worried she would have to tell her son she couldn’t make it out to see him graduate. The idea of missing out on her son becoming a Marine terrified her. With her $1,000 prize, however, Barb can’t wait to see the son she hasn’t seen since October.

“I’m so excited,” she says.

Congratulations, Barb – and have a great trip!

$1,000 rebate gas card winner

dennisbrebate

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!


Member gets her bailout – $500 worth

sherryh500

Congratulations to Sherry H. of Jackson – she’s our “Where’s MY bailout?” cash stimulus winner. Sherry wins $500 for refinancing her 2005 Town & Country van with American 1 back in December.

We thought, with all the stimulus talk, that we would offer members their own bailout package when they refinanced a vehicle with American 1. One lucky member would win $500 cash.

Sherry was that lucky member. Congrats, Sherry!


One of our own wins a new furnace

vanessas

A big congratulations to our own Vanessa Suddeth: she won a brand new furnace from Lammers Heating & Air Conditioning and NewsTalk 970 WKHM. They hold an annual contest, and Vanessa – after being a finalist last winter – finally won a $3,000 furnace.

She was in the Jackson Citizen Patriot Saturday, and had this to say:

“I cried,” said Suddeth, who has lived in her home on Adams Street for 11 years. “That’s all I could do was cry and say ‘thank you, thank you.’ I was just blown away.”

This came just as the winter weather hits, when heating bills are at their highest. If you see her at our front desk at the Home Office, be sure to give Vanessa a big congratulations. Way to go!
