U.S. Bank Celebrating 150th Anniversary with Summer Giveaways
MINNEAPOLIS -- July 1, 2013
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.
