Achieva Credit Union Member Wins $10,000 Grand Prize in Online Bill Payment Sweepstakes

11/9/2011 10:24:01 AM

Clearwater, Florida, November 3, 2011 – It pays to be a member of Achieva Credit Union. One dramatic example is member Robert L, who won a $10,000 grand prize as part of a Sweepstakes for online bill payment subscribers.

The Sweepstakes ran during the summer, 2011.  Any member who paid at least three bills using Achieva’s online bill pay system was automatically entered into the Sweepstakes and could enter up to 30 times.

“Online bill pay is one of our most popular platforms because it is so convenient and saves time, money, and paper. It also offers eBills (electronic bills delivered within online bill pay) which are more secure than having a paper statement delivered through the mail. For all these reasons, we have seen a continual growth in subscribers for this free service” said Gary Regoli, CEO, Achieva Credit Union.

There were 135 credit unions who participated in the Sweepstakes and 4.5 million entries received. In addition to the $10,000 grand prize, a 1st prize of a $2,000 Montrose Travel Certificate was awarded and two 2nd place prizes of a 16 GB Apple IPad and IPad case.

“I love technology” said Robert L., who has been a member of Achieva Credit Union for over 10 years and takes advantage of many of their convenient services such as free online banking, and free bill pay.
