Illinois league iPod giveaway promotes iBelong CU awareness
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (9/21/09)--The Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) is giving away 30 iPods at CUs in 30 days to promote International Credit Union Day Oct. 15 and the iBelong awareness campaign in the state. This campaign, which runs through Sept. 30, provides residents with 30 opportunities to win an Apple iPod Shuffle by visiting www.ibelongillinoissurvey.org and filling out a brief survey describing their banking patterns and preferences. Every day this month, one participant will win an Apple iPod Shuffle, regardless of whether the winner is a member of one of Illinois’ participating credit unions. ICUL officials hope Illinois residents will hear their message detailing the perks of credit union membership, including lower rates on loans and higher yields on savings. There is no obligation for residents who fill out the survey to become credit union members. “Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that work hard to give you better service, a safe place to save money, and access to affordable loans,” said Dan Plauda, ICUL president/chief executive officer. “No wonder 90 million people across the country, including 2.7 million in Illinois, belong to a credit union.” ICUL is in its second year running its “iBelong” campaign, licensed last year from the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA), with Chicago-based advertising agency HGadgroup. The awareness campaign has been partially responsible for increasing credit union membership in the state by more than 39,000 in 2008. The 2009 campaign is ongoing.
