BCU Member Wins VISA NFL Sweepstakes

February 14, 2011 - Vernon Hills, IL - Your credit union is thrilled to announce that one of our own members was the Grand Prize Winner of VISA®’s NFL Super Bowl XLV Gridiron Giveaway.

All BCU VISA debit cardholders were automatically entered in this sweepstakes each time a signature-based VISA purchase was made with a BCU debit card at participating U.S. merchant locations. The promotion ran from September 1 to November 30, 2010.

As the grand prize winner, Vincent won a trip worth over $15,000 to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV. He and his wife, Holly, enjoyed this once-in-a-lifetime trip, which included:

    February 5, 2011
  • Two tickets to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas
  • Two tickets to the NFL Tailgate Party
  • An opportunity to stand on the field at the tunnel as NFL team players were introduced
  • Dinner with three NFL players
  • A $500 VISA Gift Card
  • “It was just incredible, truly an unforgettable experience,” said Vincent of his trip. “Who would imagine that some daily task, such as buying groceries, would earn me this honor? We had dinner with Steve Jackson of the Rams, Maurice Jones Drew of the Ravens, and retired Rams running back Marshall Faulk. The NFL party the night before was amazing; it included a Faith Hill concert which was a highlight for my wife! The opportunity to be on the field two hours before the game started, walk through the grounds, and stand by in close proximity while the national anthem was performed was memorable. In all, it was a chance of a lifetime for us. We can’t thank BCU enough for seeking out possibilities like this to reward its members”.

    CEO Mike Valentine was thrilled with the news. “I imagine our members believe the chances of winning a national VISA sweepstakes are slim. I always enjoy making the call to congratulate a member and was delighted to hear first-hand about the incredible experience our member was able to enjoy”.
