American Heritage Credit Union awarded a $15,000 Grand Vacation grand prize and eight $1,000 cash prizes to members during their 2022 Grand Vacation Sweepstakes totaling $23,000 in prizes. American Heritage created the sweepstakes as a way of encouraging non-cash usage and promoting member engagement. American Heritage members earned entries into the sweepstakes when they used their debit or credit card between July and October of 2021.
The Grand Prize Drawing for the $15,000 travel gift card winner took place at American Heritage’s Grand Illumination event in November. Five potential winners were invited to the stage for the grand prize drawing, and the four runners-up received a second place, $1,000 prize. Additional $1,000 prizes were awarded each month leading up to the event, with one winner selected each month.
