Everyone likes to win money.
Not everyone likes to save money.
Forty-four percent of Americans don’t have access to $400 in liquid savings in case of an emergency, according to an economic status report by the Federal Reserve.
Meanwhile, the poorest third of American households account for half of the $70 billion spent annually on lottery tickets, according to the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries.
Have you ever stopped to think about how much money you could have personally saved in your lifetime if you never bought a lottery ticket?
By opening a Saver’s Sweepstakes® savings account at UnitedOne Credit Union you can build your financial strength while also still giving yourself the thrill that comes with a chance to win money.
UnitedOne members who have opened a Saver’s Sweepstakes savings account have saved an average of $445 and 27 percent have won money in a Saver’s Sweepstakes monthly drawing.
Those savings and odds sound like a pretty good combination, right?
There are over 30 credit unions across Wisconsin offering Saver’s Sweepstakes savings account, which is a program of The Wisconsin Credit Union League.
