SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--U.S. Bank is launching ‘Happy New You,’ a 16-day sweepstakes giving away daily prizes, leading up to a $5,000 grand prize. To participate in this national sweepstakes, individuals will need to download the Your Community app, a geo-location based app powered by U.S. Bank, providing unique resources and information for consumers in their local area.
From January 16-31, 2016, U.S. Bank will award multiple Your Community mobile app users a daily giveaway from national retailers. One grand prize winner will be announced February 1, receiving a $5,000 check from U.S. Bank. The app users can increase their chances to win one of the 16 daily giveaways by interacting with the app every day during the promotional campaign. They can also increase chances of winning by sharing the app via Facebook or Twitter.
The Your Community app, which is currently being tested in the San Francisco Bay area, features local events, promotional offers, financial education tips, noteworthy community news and much more. It is available for FREE* download in the app store for both Android and iOS devices.
“We launched the Your Community app last year in the San Francisco Bay area as part of our continued effort to be innovative in how we connect with our customers through their mobile devices,” said Dominic Venturo, chief innovation officer for U.S. Bank. “Your Community also allows our business clients to make offers available to individuals near the merchants’ locations. The ‘Happy New You’ campaign is a great additional incentive to download the app, check out all the offers and helpful financial information and win great prizes.”
While the app’s content currently focuses on the San Francisco Bay area, it also includes information that appeals to all geographic regions. When consumers download the app outside of Northern California, their location will be detected automatically, and they will receive relevant national U.S. Bank information.
