United Bank Announces September Debit Card Sweepstakes Winner

United Bank Announces September Debit Card Sweepstakes Winner

United Bank made one very lucky customer’s day on Friday, October 20 when the Bank’s Retail Banking team presented Patty Cortes of Coventry with a $10,000 cash prize for winning the September Debit Card Sweepstakes.

Mark Sanchioni, Senior Vice President and Head of Retail Banking, presented Ms. Cortes with the $10,000 check at United’s Coventry branch. United Bank made a similar presentation over the summer to another customer who won United’s first-ever Hello Summer Debit Card Sweepstakes.

Here’s how the September Debit Card Sweepstakes worked: every United Bank debit card purchase transaction made between September 1 and September 30 was counted as an entry into the sweepstakes. After the contest concluded on September 30, Ms. Cortes’ name was randomly selected by the Bank from that list of transactions. Entry into the contest was free and mail-in entries were accepted.

Eligibility and official contest rules stated that customers who entered their name to participate in the contest had to be from Connecticut or Massachusetts and be 18 years of age or older at the time of their entry. Employees and Directors of United Bank – as well as their immediate family members – were not eligible to participate in the sweepstakes campaign.

Presenting the check to the September Sweepstakes winner were: Philip Parker (United Bank); Thora Cowperthwaite (United Bank); Patty Cortes (Winner); Wendy Stowell (United Bank); Sarita Tripathy
(United Bank); and Lisa Rood (United Bank).
