2014_Bank_PigsAroundTown_002Want a fun way to earn money for your savings account while also getting fun prizes along the way?  Then join us in our Pigs Around Town summer-long scavenger hunt!

Fifteen large pig cutouts will be found at various locations throughout Green Valley Ranch and Montbello; all you need to do is take a picture with them.

Here’s how it works:

  1. First, take a selfie with any pig you find. These pigs could be found anywhere, so be sure to check libraries, rec centers, and restaurants.
  2. Once you take the picture just post the photo to any social media with the tag #PigsAroundTown.
  3. After that, bring your photo to Young Americans bank and get your $5.00 and a prize. If you take a picture with each of the 15 unique pig cutouts, you can earn up to $75.00 towards your account.

    How long will this be going on – or when is the last date the pigs will be out?

    My sister & I just completed the hunt with our grandchildren! I opened accounts for my grands when they were infants. They are now 8 & 4(twins)! Thank you for creating this family financial opportunity! P.S. We are sharing & passing out the flyers!

    What information is needed to open the account?

    • Katie Payer says:

      To open an account at our Far Northeast Branch, young people need to bring a photo I.D. We will also need a parent signature on a form available at the branch. We provide everything else!

    Great idea. Always looking to encourage our grand kids to save money. We gave each of them a “401g” acct … any increase in savings at year’s end (last year’s bank balance vs. this year’s) is matched by Gramma — the G in 401g.
