Brooke Thomas could not believe her luck when Global Cash Card called her out of the blue to tell her that she had won $12,000, in fact, she thought that she was “being punked.” Ms. Thomas was selected out of thousands of prepaid cardholders as the grand prize winner in the Visa Prepaid Tax Sweepstakes and received an entire years worth of groceries in the form of $12,000! Ms. Thomas was entered into the Visa Sweepstakes simply by loading her tax refund onto her Global Cash Card Visa prepaid card. She received her Global Cash Card Visa card as an employee of the Metro Atlanta YMCA.
On Friday November 8th, 2013, Katie Carstens, Vice President of Human Resources of the Metro Atlanta YMCA, Melanie Carter, Manager of Field support for Global Cash Card, and Patrick Williams f Visa, all gathered to congratulate Ms. Thomas and present her award. Ms. Thomas was overjoyed at the generosity of a year’s worth of groceries and said, “This came at the perfect time! When I first heard the news I was sure I was being punked!”
“There are many benefits to using a Global Cash Card Paycard, but this is an unexpected one for Brooke,” says KatieCarstens, YMCA of Metro Atlanta Vice President of Human Resources. “As an employer, we appreciate the ease and security of a card like this. Employees benefit by having the use of a card. We are thrilled Brooke is receiving an additional benefit so close to the holidays,”
Global Cash Card congratulates Brooke and encourages all of our cardholders to make sure that they have their tax refunds put onto their Global Cash Card.
