Roanoke Man Wins $1,000 for Using His American National Bank Debit Card

Third Winner Announced in American National’s Summer Debit Card Sweepstakes

Roanoke, VA – American National Bank & Trust Company awarded $1000.00 to Roanoke resident Richard Lawrence, the third winner of the bank’s Summer Debit Card Sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes comes on the heels of American National’s mass reissuance of Visa contactless debit cards to every customer with a debit card. “We’ve gotten great feedback about the ease of using the new contactless cards,” says Carolyn Kiser, American National’s Director of Marketing & Community Affairs. “We are pleased to offer cards that are both secure and convenient to use.”

American National launched its Summer Debit Card Sweepstakes campaign to encourage customers to use their new debit card. Each time a customer uses their card, they receive one entry in the sweepstakes.

The new debit cards use the latest debit card technology to make payments more secure, convenient, and touch-free. The cards use secure EMV “chips” to tokenize transactions and purchases can be made by simply tapping the card on payment terminals. They also work with mobile payments such as Apple Pay, Google Play, and Samsung Pay.

Customers like Richard Lawrence who use their cards frequently receive more entries in the sweepstakes. “I use my debit card all the time,” says Lawrence. “And I like to use the digital wallet on my phone, too.”

The American National Summer Debit Card Sweepstakes runs through the end of August 2022. Every two weeks, a winner is chosen at random to win $1000.00.
