U.S. Bank Celebrating 150th Anniversary with Summer Giveaways12:08 EDT Monday, July 01, 2013
MINNEAPOLIS (Business Wire) -- What are you celebrating in 2013? This summer, your milestone or big accomplishment could win you $15,000.
To celebrate its 150th anniversary this year, U.S. Bank is giving away prizes all summer to people who share on the bank's Facebook page what it is that they are celebrating in 2013. Each week, a winner will be randomly drawn for a $150 VISA® Rewards Card. Then, on August 14 , U.S. Bank will hold a random drawing for the grand prize of $15,000.
“For 150 years, U.S. Bank has helped personal and business customers achieve their financial goals,” said Kent Stone, vice chairman of consumer banking for U.S. Bank. “We're excited to celebrate our own milestone by highlighting those celebrating something of their own.”
U.S. Bank's national charter was signed during Abraham Lincoln's presidency 150 years ago on July 13, 1863 in Cincinnati, while the Civil War raged across the Ohio River. Since then, U.S. Bank has not only survived, but thrived during a period of depressions, recessions and two world wars, and today is the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States.
