New York City was the arranged lunch setting for Sheree Jennings and entrepreneur Russell Simmons as Prepaid Visa® RushCard announced Sheree the winner of the “Lunch with Russell” Sweepstakes. Sheree’s adept skills at money management helped her win the contest.
By direct depositing her recent tax refund on her RushCard, Sheree was entered into the contest thus winning her and her best friend not only lunch with Russell, but a personal consultantation with his financial advisor and a shopping spree. Simmons and RushCard created the contest to help entice cardholders to become more financially astute by taking advantage of such money management features as the “free” direct deposit tool.
Sheree, a Pittsburg mother and Baby Phat RushCard member since 2009 stated:
“I can’t believe I had the opportunity to have this experience. Russell has built a legacy for his family and he shared with me pointers on how I can continue to build a secure financial future for my family. I know that making smart financial choices is key.”
Tax refunds direct deposited onto the RushCard are safer than a check that could be lost or stolen in the mail. Typically members receive their refunds in 2-4 weeks and also avoid costly check-cashing fees or long check-cashing lines.
Russell Simmons added:
“It’s important to me that our members understand my personal commitment to helping them realize their financial goals. I’m glad to know the RushCard is helping everyday people like Sheree. We really had a great time.”
Other benefits of the RushCard include: opt-in credit reporting, card-to-card transfers and free prescription drug discount cards. To apply for a RushCard or learn more about the offering company, UniRush LLC, visit www.rushcard.com.
