BCU Members Win Annual "Bill Pay Summer Sweepstakes"

Out of thousands of entries from 129 financial institutions nationwide, BCU members swept the sweepstakes

VERNON HILLS, IL – October 14, 2010 -- The only thing better than enjoying a fun and festive summertime is winning $10,000 to help pay for your expenses. That’s precisely what happened for BCU member Daphne Durant of Pembroke Pines, Florida. The folks at Vernon Hills, IL-based BCU were pleased to notify Durant that her name was selected as the grand-prize winner from thousands of PSCU Financial Services’ “Bill Pay Summer Sweepstakes” entries submitted by members of the 129 credit unions nationwide who took part in the contest.

“Mrs. Durant was absolutely thrilled and more than a little surprised to learn that she won the $10,000 grand prize, just for signing up and using PSCU’s Online Bill Pay service,” said Carey Price, BCU’s Vice President of Sales and Service, who reports a 10% increase in Online Bill Pay usage by BCU members during the sweepstakes period. “More of our members are signing up for online bill pay and making BCU Online Services a routine part of their personal finances.”

A BCU member since 1991, Durant’s longtime membership speaks to how happy she has been with the financial products and first-class treatment she’s enjoyed throughout the years. “When BCU offered a no-cost, Online Bill Pay service, we said sign us up,” said Mrs. Durant. “But we never dreamed that, in addition to giving us a quick and easy way to manage our household finances, signing up for BCU’s Online Bill Pay would also earn us $10,000!”

BCU’s Miami Branch Manager Saul Mejia presents the $10,000 Grand Prize to BCU member Daphne Durant (Pembroke Pines, FL) along with his congratulations for winning the PSCU Financial Services “Bill Pay Summer Sweepstakes”.

A Medline Industries employee of Libertyville, IL claimed the substantial “first prize” of a $1,500 Montrose travel certificate. Medline Industries, America's largest privately-held national manufacturer and distributor of health care supplies and services, sponsors credit union membership through BCU to provide exclusive financial services to Medline employees and their family members.

BCU is proud to partner with PSCU to offer an ever-widening package of electronic services, including Online Bill Pay. The progressive Credit Union is also in final preparation for launching mobile banking applications for both iPhones and Android-powered mobile devices, as well as remote deposit transfer. Future applications are also being developed for Spanish-language mobile applications, as well as those supporting Blackberry and text-based banking.

“BCU is all about improving our members’ financial security and personal lives,” Price points out. “In addition to our state-of-the-art online and mobile banking products, we also support our members with branches throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as convenient, no-fee access to the largest shared ATM network in the U.S. It is this, as well as the personal service unique to credit unions the reason why so many consumers are choosing credit unions for their personal finances.”
