(Woodbury, MN –November 19, 2019) – Ideal Credit Union’s popular $1,000 Holiday Debit Card Giveaway is back for another four weeks this holiday season. Ideal CU has held this yearly holiday promotion since 2012 and has given away $28,000 to 28 lucky members. To qualify, members with an Ideal CU personal checking account simply use their Ideal CU Debit Mastercard® or My Rewards™ Gold or Platinum Debit Card for purchases and earn a chance to win one of Ideal CU's four weekly $1,000 random drawings. Members earn 100 bonus entries into the weekly drawing when they make 25 or more purchases a week.

The $1,000 Holiday Debit Card Giveaway runs over the holiday shopping season from November 20 – December 17, 2019. Official rules and disclosure information can be found at idealcu.com.

“Our annual Holiday Debit Card Giveaway is a fun and exciting way to reward members for using their Ideal CU Debit Mastercard during the busy holiday shopping season when convenience and access are so important,” said Brian Sherrick, Ideal CU President/CEO. Previous winners have used the unexpected cash to pay bills, buy more holiday gifts or travel. One winner had just decided to pursue her dream of becoming a personal trainer, but was concerned about where she would find the $1,000 tuition. She then got the call from Ideal with the exciting news that she had been chosen at random – just for using her Ideal CU Debit Card for every day purchases.

The annual holiday giveaway is just one of the many ways Ideal CU rewards members for using their Debit Card. Throughout 2019, Ideal has been giving away $1,000 a month to one lucky winner in our “Use & Win” Debit Card Giveaway. To-date, 33 lucky winners have been chosen at random to receive the $1,000 monthly prize since this exciting monthly member giveaway began in January of 2017. Ideal will continue the monthly $1,000 Use & Win promotion in 2020.

With the My Rewards™ Debit Card from Ideal Credit Union, members earn points for everyday purchases, and bonus points or cash back when shopping online through the Rewards website. Points can be redeemed for hundreds of exciting gift items, such as gift cards, electronics and fun getaways. Card benefits also include extended warranty coverage, prescription savings, roadside assistance, medical evacuation and travel assistance services, hotel and car rental discounts and more.
