DALLAS, Aug. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Santander Consumer USA (SC) and Chrysler Capital each awarded a $10,000 grand prize and five $500 prizes to customers who signed up for paperless statements prior to April 1.
The sweepstakes was a win-win, as SC and Chrysler Capital enrolled thousands of customers in its paperless statements program.
"We are excited to announce our winners of the paperless sweepstakes," said Lori Millard, SC executive vice president of customer service and operations. "We love rewarding our customers for making a difference in their carbon footprint by opting to go green and eliminate paper. Not only is this good for the environment, our customers can count on digital delivery of their statement every month, which makes it easier for them to manage their account."
The sweepstakes winners are:
Santander Consumer USA
Nakeia C. of LaGrange, GA
Cherrie G. of Orange Park, FL
Wayne C. of Charlotte, VT
Karyana T. of Marion, SC
Jacquelynn W. of Los Angeles, CA
Tanisha L. of Dallas, TX
Mark S. of Copley, OH
Atia R. of Philadelphia, PA
Alma V. of El Paso, TX
Helen Y. of Queensbury, NY
John D. of Seattle, WA
Lance W. of Houston, TX
Nakeia C., a single mother of two, couldn't believe how lucky she was to win. "Life has been pretty hard…but this prize is definitely a blessing that came at the right time to help me get back on my feet."
The winner said she "was amazed at how quick and simple it was" to sign up online to receive paperless e-statements rather than other available options. Nakeia was randomly selected for one of the two $10,000 grand prizes from Santander Consumer USA and Chrysler Capital.
Nakeia said most of the prize money will go to paying bills, but that she'll enjoy some of it with her supportive family. "The peace of mind this prize has brought is really its own reward."
"It just feels incredible, it's amazing," said Mark S., who signed up for paperless billing after leasing a truck in January. "I've never really won anything like this before in my life, so it's hard to describe."
Asked what he plans to do with his $10,000 in sweepstakes winnings, Mark said, "We just moved into our house and have a lot of home improvement ideas to work out. But, most importantly, we're going to put some money away for our two kids' education."
"Our customers are thrilled with how easy it is for them to sign up for our paperless option," said Zach Munichiello, SC's senior vice president of operational strategy. "After answering a brief question at sign in, they eliminate the worry of receiving additional paper in the mail and discover the ease of accessing their statements through our online portal, 24/7."
The sweepstakes, which ran for two months, nearly doubled the enrollment rate for paperless statements, with a total of about 190,000 customers opting to go green.
