Introducing the Great ATM Hunt!!!



As the egg hunting season approaches, the Ukrainian Credit Union Limited is very excited to announce an exciting variation of its own! The details are below, so read all about it and keep an eye on our website and Facebook pages for futher details.

Did you even know that you can withdraw money for free (no surcharges), and even deposit your cheques in select ATMs of other financial institutions? Many of our members had no idea that such an 'easter egg' existed amongst all the many benefits of credit union membership - so we're going to give you a chance to win some money while discovering the convenience of The Exchange Network!

30 prizes of $50 dollars will be up for grabs over the next few weeks in UCU's ATM Hunt contest!

You may have been reading about The Exchange Network, the network of 2500 ATMs across Canada that allow credit unions and otherfinancial institutions to share their resources and provide (mostly) fee-less service to eachothers' members all across the continent.

Living downtown by UofT? 
Check your party-fund balance at the Korean Credit Union! 

Passing through Vaughan on the way home from the cottage? 
Deposit your bottle deposit at IC Savings in Vaughan!

Need cash for fruit-stand-fruit on the way to Niagara On The Lake?
Buy another quart of peaches with the money you save by withdrawing cash from an Exchange Network ATM! There are plenty of locations on the way!

Located in any one of the communities served by UCU?
Contest entries will include locations in Hamilton, London, Mississauga, Oshawa, Ottawa, St. Catharines, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Windsor and of course in Toronto. So every one of our members will have a chance to win some mad loot!

You may not be aware of this, but you can perform almost all the services you'd be able to at your regular UCU branch at other full-service ATMs from other credit unions! The Exchange Network is just another reason why banking with credit unions is a great way to go.


Every few days - once the contest starts - we will post a hint about a particular ATM located somewhere in Ontario on our facebook page... Generally, these are located not-too-too far from where our members are already travelling!

UCU Members will have 5 days (124 hours!) to photograph themselves in front of the institution where the hinted-at ATM is located. The first to send the photo to will receive $50 deposited directly into their account. Isn't it nice when you don't even have to THINK about getting money?

The photo, or series of photos, must contain YOU, and enough context for us to confirm that you have found the correct location of the ATM. Selfies are absolutely acceptable and encouraged, just make sure it is clear that you have found the right location by including a photo of yourself in front of the location and include the name of the credit union or bank branch and its address in your email to us.

In the email, don't forget to include your name, and phone number, and the photo, and the name of the credit union (or provided hint) you are submitting a photo of! 

The rules:

By submitting a photo to us, you grant the Ukrainian Credit Union explicit permission to use the photo in online and print marketing materials.

UCU also reserves the right to cancel this contest at any time, and use its discretion in matters of timing, entry content when validating submissions and determining winners.

Late submissions will not be accepted, and entrants of invalid or unclear submissions will not be notified of such.

To qualify, you must be a member of the Ukrainian Credit Union Limited.
