M&T Bank offered a drawing called M&T’s Save & Win Sweepstakes that featured automated entries with savings deposit activity. M&T Bank also contributed $5,000 to help a randomly selected saver who participated in the sweepstakes reach their savings goal. In addition, M&T Bank actively encouraged savings during America Saves Week and throughout February 2015 by sending over one million emails to customers, distributing 105,200 branch flyers, calling over 3,570 customers to schedule savings plan review appointments, and sharing information with its social media followers. The promotional materials used during M&T Bank’s February savings focus encouraged the use of automated savings plans through direct deposit and automatic transfers. Through the America Saves Week effort, M&T Bank established more than 2,330 new savings relationships with customers. M&T Bank is also a proud recipient of the 2015 America Saves Designation of Savings Excellence.
