Our members already know that Servus shares millions of dollars of profits every year, and this year we're going to transform the financial fitness of one lucky winner by giving them $1 million! Will it be you?

The contest is called The Big Share™ and it's our way of encouraging Servus members, and members of Alberta communities at large, to incorporate healthy savings habits into their lives and ultimately feel good about their money. The contest runs from January 1 until April 30, 2019 and to reward the loyalty of existing Servus members, we've automatically given them 1 entry for every $1 of Profit Share® Rewards cash earned in 2018.

Because Servus was founded on cooperative principles, we've chosen to open this contest to all Albertans as a means of living our commitment of concern for the financial fitness of our community. It's no secret that Albertans need help when it comes to saving money. In fact, according to results from a recent Ipsos survey*, 69% of Albertans said they either have "too little in the way of retirement savings" or "no retirement savings at all", which is higher than any other region in the country.

At Servus, we believe we can help change that (because a "little" motivation never hurt).

Those who are eligible can earn contest entries based on the money they save or invest with Servus during the contest period. You will earn an entry for every $500 that your Servus savings balances grow between January 1 and April 30, 2019.

If you've been meaning to open that savings account or add to your investments, but haven't gotten around to it — now you have a million reasons to just do it!

If you've already set out along your savings path — now you have a million reasons to continue your journey with Servus.

The best part is that, even if you don't win the big prize, the savings and investments you hold with Servus will earn you Profit Share Rewards cash at the end of the year (literally no downside!). Our financial advisors are ready to help you determine your savings goals and put together a plan to reach them (while getting you entered in the contest — we won't forget). Then it's up to you to let your imagination run wild with the possibilities for that $1 million you may win.
