Lakeland Bank Launches Mastercard® Debit Card Sweepstakes - August

Consumer Debit Card Customers Can Win Up to $1,000

 Oak Ridge, N.J. – July 25, 2018 – Lakeland Bank is pleased to offer its Mastercard® Debit Card Sweepstakes beginning on August 1, 2018. Just in time for back to school shopping, all Lakeland Bank customers who use their debit card to make a point of sale purchase will be automatically entered into the Sweepstakes and will have the chance to win up to $1,000.

“With the summer coming to an end and a new school year beginning, we thought it was the perfect time to run another sweepstakes for our customers,” said Ellen Lalwani, Chief Retail Officer of Lakeland Bank. “The back to school season is an exciting time and we’re looking forward to presenting a check to four lucky winners.”

From the first day of school for your kindergartener to your recent high school grad starting college, we know how expensive back to school shopping can be. No matter what school year your children are beginning, here are some helpful tips for back to school shopping:

  • Check storage and cabinets first-look in your cabinets and closets to see if you have any leftover supplies from last year. You might be able to cross a few things off the list for this year.
  • Stick to the list-this is the best way to save time and money. A list can help you avoid buying items you don’t need and help get you out of the store sooner!
  • Shop the office supply stores-many shoppers assume these stores can’t compete with Target or Walmart, but the back to school season is a great time to find deals at the big chain office supply stores.

The Mastercard Debit Card Sweepstakes will run from August 1 through August 31, 2018. Customers will receive one entry into the sweepstakes every time they use their Lakeland Bank Mastercard Debit Card to make a purchase. Weekly winners will be randomly selected on August 8, 15, and 22 to receive a $500 prize and a $1,000 grand prize winner will be drawn on September 3. Winners will be announced after prizes have been claimed. ATM-based Debit Card transactions do not qualify as an entry into the sweepstakes. Mail-in entries are acceptable.
