10 IV. Informational Items/Scripts “Invest in America—Sprint” – :60 Radio VO: Everybody knows it’s good to support American companies—it’s good for the economy, it’s good for your community, and now, it’s good for you, too. It’s a program called Invest in America—with special savings just for credit union members. With Invest in America, credit union members get big discounts when they buy goods and services from American companies. Like Sprint, based in Kansas City, home to America’s only 4G Network--where you can save up to 10% on your monthly bill, plus other discounts. The great thing about Invest in America is you don’t have to go out of your way to save—you save on the things you buy every day and the bills you pay every month, like your wireless bill. And keeping your money close to home, where it can do the most good. When you join a credit union, you don’t just save your money. You own your money. Join the 5,000 people who join a credit union every day. Finding one is easy at Federally insured by the NCUA.

11 IV. Informational Items/Scripts “Save to Win” – :60 Radio VO: If you belong to a big bank, you probably participate in some kind of rewards program. And they all pretty much work the same way: they reward you for spending your money. The more you spend, the bigger the rewards. At credit unions, we do things a little differently. We don’t just reward you for spending. We actually reward you for saving, too. It’s a program we call Save to Win. Simply visit a participating credit union. Start saving with as little as $25. And you’ll be entered to win up to $100,000. What happens if you don’t win? Are you out $25? Quite the contrary. Your account is $25 richer. And every $25 deposit is another entry to win. You can earn up to 10 entries per month. At that rate, you’ll be paying yourself a bundle. A lot of savings. And a lot more chances to win a whole lotta money. This year’s Save to Win drawing runs through December 31 st, 2010 with our Grand Prize drawing in January, 2011. Don’t just save your money. Own your money. For more information, visit
