TCF Bank Helps Bring Some Calm to Our Crazy Lives

"The Reward of Time" Promotion Will Send a Lucky Winner to Hawaii

Company Release - 11/1/2007 3:45 PM ET


Everyone talks about how crazy busy our lives are these days, but you have to wonder if anyone's actually listening. TCF Bank wants to do something about that.

Between now and the end of December, anyone can visit and tell a story about their crazy day. TCF will choose the top five entries each week and post them to "The Reward of Time" website. Website visitors will vote for their favorite Crazy Day Story and the person who submits the story with the most votes will receive the weekly prize of a TCF Bank Visa(R) Gift Card worth $1,000! But that's not all. Everyone who submits a Crazy Day Story will automatically be entered to win the grand prize---a trip for two to Hawaii! Can you think of a better remedy for a crazy day than sun, sandy beaches and palm trees?

Anyone who visits a TCF Bank in Minnesota, Michigan, Colorado and Arizona can also receive a free digital camcorder when they open a free TCF checking account and a new savings account with automatic transfer during TCF's "The Reward of Time" promotion. What a great way to reward yourself for taking a big step toward making your life a bit less crazy! (Consumers in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin can visit their neighborhood TCF Bank branch for current offers and promotions in their area).

"TCF Bank is dedicated to finding ways to help our customers save time," said Candace Lex, Chief Marketing Officer. "From being open 7 days, extended hours and convenient grocery store locations to a full compliment of checking and savings packages, our mission is to make banking easy and convenient!"
