Tinker offers reward programs You Tube video contest
OKLAHOMA CITY (2/1/08)--Tinker FCU is offering members a Give Back Rewards program and a YouTube video contest where a high school or college-aged individual can enter to win a $2,000 scholarship. The Give Back Rewards program, effective through Dec. 31, automatically enters members to win rewards. Each month, 10 active Home Branch users will win a $100 gift card, 10 Online BillPay users will be reimbursed up to $500 for a bill paid online, one member using direct deposit will have a deposit doubled up to $2,000, and one member with a loan payment will be reimbursed up to $1,000. Every day, one member using a MoneyPlus Visa check card for a purchase will be reimbursed up to $100. The credit union also approved a new fee structure, effective last August. “We were determined to find ways to give back to our members,” said Tinker President/CEO Michael D. Kloiber. “The revised fee structure and the Give Back drawings are designed to thank our members monetarily for their loyalty.” The YouTube video contest was created to gain perspective on what money means to college and high school students, said Nancy Entz, Tinker FCU vice president and marketing manager. All students in Oklahoma are eligible to upload videos about what money means to them on the contest website,, starting today. The deadline for submissions is March 14. The videos will be voted on March 31, and the top eight will be placed in an online bracket where they will be voted on again. The bracket mimics March Madness, Entz said. Winners will be announced in mid-April. All bracket winners will receive $50 iTunes gift cards and a “fan favorite” will receive a $200 iTunes gift card. The idea for the contest was created at a Credit Union National Association marketing conference last year. The scholarship contest fits the credit union’s mission, and is “new and progressive for us. We’re excited,” Entz said. Tinker FCU has more than $1.5 billion in assets.
