New Brewers checking account customers receive Milwaukee Brewers™ jersey

Milwaukee - April 9, 2012 - This baseball season Associated Bank teams up with the Milwaukee Brewers™ to offer an exclusive checking account for the ultimate Brewers baseball fan.

Beginning April 6 through Oct. 31, new Brewers Checking customers will receive-while quantities last- a replica MLB™ Brewers jersey with the player of their choice or a customized jersey with their name and lucky number, along with the standard Associated Bank Brewers Checking Account benefits. The promotion* is open to fans across Associated's three-state footprint (Wis., Ill. and Minn.).

By opening a Brewers Checking Account, customers will receive: a checkbook cover inscribed with the Brewers logo, a Baseball Fan Debit MasterCard® and the ability to purchase exclusive Brewers checks. Additionally, when Brewers Checking Account customers show their Brewers debit card or checks at the Brewers Team Fan Store by Majestic, they will receive a 10 percent discount good any time they shop and 2-for-1 ticket discounts on select games**.

To receive this special offer, customers have to specifically mention the Brewers jersey promotion at their Associated Bank branch when they open their account. In order to qualify to receive the Brewers jersey, the customer has to make five debit card purchases or have a qualifying direct deposit to their account within 45 days of opening their new Brewers Checking Account. Once the customer has qualified, a jersey voucher will be mailed to their address with further instructions on how to obtain their jersey.  

In addition, all Brewers Checking customers will have the opportunity*** to win great prizes in "The Best of the Brewers Swipestakes" when making purchases with their Baseball Fan Debit MasterCard®.
