Credit Union of America announces participation in VISA’s Magic Minute Sweepstakes 2018. Magic Minute is a program that randomly selects winners from across the country from members of participating financial institutions that use the institution’s credit card at least three times weekly. The more weeks you meet the minimum eligible purchases, the more times you are entered in the Sweepstakes.
CUA member, Miriam Vasquez, was one of seven lucky winners nationwide in 2017. Vasquez and her guest were treated to an all expenses paid trip to Chicago and were also accompanied by a staff member of CUA. Each winner was awarded a minute to run the VISA merchandise warehouse with their guest. The total prize package averages $9,000 per winner.
After her Magic Minute in November 2017, Vasquez shared, “It was really easy. I always use my CUA credit card and perhaps I used it a bit more during the contest. When I got online to register for the contest I watched the video of past winners. It looked fun and it was! It was great to represent my Credit Union and it made Christmas shopping fun and easy!
