Good Things can Happen to You, in a Magic Minute!

Good Things can Happen to You, in a Magic Minute!

CUA member, Miriam Vasquez, didn’t think she would win in 2017, but she registered her CUA credit card and made sure she used it a minimum of three times per week so she could maximize her chances. Chances for what? Chances to win the national Credit Union Magic Minute contest. It happens every year and there are 7 winners nationally. And yes, a CUA member won! A CUA member can win again this year… but you have to register.  Speaking of registration, CUA is currently in 7th place nationally for contestant registrations so odds are leaning in a CUA member’s direction!

What did She Win?

Miriam won a 3-day/2-night trip for two to Chicago. It included roundtrip airfare, hotel, meals, AND a “60-second warehouse dash”! And because CUA had a winner, a CUA staff member went too!  Do you know how CUA offers rewards points based on the usage of your CUA Visa card for merchandise? Well, the Magic Minute winners get to run through that warehouse with their guest and pile as much into the carts as they can in 1 Magic Minute!  The winners draw numbers to see who goes first and they all get to walk through the warehouse first so they can plan out their route and see what there is to choose from. TV’s, laptops, iPads, coffee makers, vacuums, games, you name it! And it gets better! Our vendor, PSCU, who hosts the event, pays to ship the merchandise back to their home AND they provide each winner with a $2,000 check to help pay for the income taxes they’ll incur. Winners end up taking home a complete package of travel, prizes, etc. that averages around $9,000 total value, each!

Winners get to invite a guest, and a representative from their credit union attends as well. You didn’t think we’d let you have all of the fun, did you? The dash is on December 5th, right before the holidays, so think of it as holiday shopping for free!

Here’s a video of Miriam preparing for her dash, she is the “#1 dasher” in this highlight video.

Miriam told us she had seen a similar video when CUA was promoting the Magic Minute and it looked like fun, so she registered.
