Since the start of our $5,000 Payday Bonus Sweepstakes in 2016, we’ve awarded 75 winners with a total of $375,000 in prize money! And we haven’t stopped there—we’re STILL adding new winners every week because we love our cardholders! But this isn’t just about money for us; we really want to get to know our cardholders for the amazing people they are. So, we invited a few of our winners to come hang for a day as we had some great conversations, shared some good food, and got some awesome photos and videos along the way.
In fact, we had so much fun hanging out with our winners that we decided to feature them on our website and social media channels. Check out some of our behind-the-scenes shots below and get to know the story behind a few of our amazing Green Dot cardholders.
First up is Michael. He’s from New York and has been a Green Dot customer for years. He’s a big motorcycle enthusiast and owns a few sweeeeet cruisers. He was able to use most of his winnings to pay off a few bills and even reserved a small amount to treat himself. He has used just about every Green Dot product and feature imaginable—from getting his social security benefits early with ASAP Direct Deposit™ (subject to the benefit or payment providers’ process and timing) to loading money with MoneyPak, or simply using our app’s Slide for Balance feature to peek at his balance without having to log in.
Next up is Margarita from Illinois. She loves music and looooves to sing. We knew Margarita was incredibly stylish the moment we met her, but what we didn’t realize is that wigology is actually one of her many passions! While she has TONS of interests, her all-time favorite pastime is spending quality time with her two sons. One of her sons, Robbie, actually joined us on the shoot! He’s currently in high school, loves playing in his band, and is an absolute sports fanatic. Margarita used her winnings to move closer to work so she could cut down on her commute time. She told us that she has enjoyed using Green Dot to shop online for almost 10 years now and loves the convenience of getting her tax refund deposited directly onto her card.
Last but certainly not least is Liza from Pennsylvania! If you ask Liza what she likes to do on the weekend, she’ll tell you she loves to relax. But, once you get to know her a bit, you’ll find that she’s also a total sports mom. She raves about her two sons and gushes with passion when she talks about going to every… single… one… of their football games. Liza has been with Green Dot for 6 years and loves getting her paychecks on her card early thanks to ASAP Direct Deposit (subject to her payment provider’s process and timing). As a fun but responsible mom, Liza put her winnings toward paying off a few bills and getting back on track financially. Way to go Liza—we LOVE hearing stories like these!
