It's our 85th Anniversary this year, but you get the gifts! Keep checking this webpage for 2021 Anniversary contests, promotions, and events.
February - December 2021
What better way to celebrate than to test our members' knowledge of our credit union history with monthly prizes?! Each month, we will be posting a trivia question about the history of First Financial on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (follow us @FirstFinancialNJ on Facebook and Instagram, and @NJBanking on Twitter). We will collect correct answers in the form of comments received by 11:59pm on the last day of each month - from combined Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram participants under the posted contest photo. We will then place the correct responses into a drawing to award one lucky member a Visa Gift Card. Gift Card prize amounts will vary based on question difficulty, but will range from $25 to $85.
Winning members can choose to have the Gift Card mailed to their home address or pick it up in their nearest branch drive thru while branch lobbies remain closed.
Participants should use the hashtag #FFFCUthrowback85 within their entry comments.
