Vantage Credit Union (Bridgeton, Mo.) announced the first of four winners in its Triskaidekaphobic? summer loan promotion. To qualify for the promotion, which runs June 1 through Sept. 30, members have to open a loan of at least $1,000 or increase an existing line of credit by $1,000 or more, during the promotional period.
Jennifer Simms, of St. Louis, had $1,300 deposited into her savings account this week on behalf of Vantage Credit Union. Her name was automatically entered in the drawing during the month of June and was randomly chosen from 402 qualifying entries.
“Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13,” commented Kathy Palmer, vice president of Marketing. “Being that it’s 2013, we thought it would be fun to use such a unique word to let our members know there’s no ‘fear’ in borrowing money from Vantage.”
