(Woodbury, MN – June 5, 2018) – Ideal Credit Union member Stephanie Smidt and her family had been raising money to bring their baby daughter home from China when she was randomly selected as the winner of September’s $1,000 “Use & Win” Debit Card Giveaway. The Smidts were just nine days away from boarding a plane to pick up the newest addition to their family when they got the news. “Thank you so much Ideal CU for helping us bring our daughter home!!! This money is such a blessing to our family!”
Other winners have used the funds to help pay for tuition, car repairs, bills, summer fun and much more! Since the program’s inception in January of 2017, Ideal CU has given away over $18,000 in the “Use & Win” Debit Card promotion. The popular monthly giveaway was so successful it got a reboot in 2018.
