CU System
Free gas cards promote CUs new online accounts
PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (7/30/08)--In a sign of the times, Power Financial CU is promoting its new online account-opening service by giving away thousands of dollars in free gas cards and discounted oil changes. The $455.3 million asset credit union, based in Pembroke Pines, also is providing nitrogen for tires and a chance to win tickets to the Ford 400 Championship at Homestead Miami Speedway. Allan M. Prindle, president/CEO, said the new online account-opening service is "an easy way for consumers to open an account without having to visit a branch. With the rising cost of gas, we recognize that many members are looking for ways to conserve, and adding more online service features eliminates back and forth trips to the branch." As part of the official launch of the online account-opening service from Aug. 11 through 15, consumers opening a new Cash Back Checking account using the online service will be eligible for a $25 gas card at the Aug. 23 kickoff event at Mobil 1 Lube Express. Existing members can stop by the event to receive a free $10 gas card while supplies last. Mobil 1 Lube Express will offer a $5.99 discount on all oil changes, $5 off the purchase of nitrogen for tires and 10% off all other services. Members also enter to win prizes, including the grand prize--a $250 gas card, two tickets to the Ford 400 Championship, and a free oil change.
