PRODUCT PROMOTIONS

1. SKIP A PAYMENT

The holidays can be both a wonderful and stressful time of the year for your account holders. Help them relax and enjoy this time of year by giving them the opportunity to skip one of their upcoming loan payments to free up some cash for the holidays. You can even incentivize your account holders to donate to local charities when offering them the opportunity to skip their upcoming payment. Learn How to Support Your Account Holders with Skip a Payment Programs and the key program considerations and critical details to include in your communications. We’ve created holiday postcard and letter templates to help you get started. Download these direct mail templates and modify with your financial institution’s offer details.
