Lakeland Bank is kicking off a Double Your Deposit Sweepstakes on Tuesday. September 1, 2020. Customers who use the Bank’s Mobile Banking app to deposit a check into their personal checking or saving account will be automatically entered into the Sweepstakes every time they make a qualified deposit. Five weekly winners will be randomly selected for a chance to win up to $1,000.

“This sweepstakes is a fun way to put a spotlight on our Mobile Banking services,” said Ellen Lalwani, Chief Banking Officer of Lakeland Bank. “We understand our customers may not always be able to visit a branch and want them to know Lakeland has a great line up of convenient and secure services to help them bank remotely.”

Mobile banking was introduced in the U.S. in 2007 and customers have steadily adopted this platform to do their banking as technology advances improved the convenience and security of this digital service. The ability to manage your bank account and make transactions from a cell phone puts you in total control of your money. Many customers find using the mobile banking services appealing for these reasons:

1. Convenience and 24/7 Access

Customers can access their bank account via a mobile app on their cell phone or tablet whenever they wish. That means users do not have to wait for a paper statement or use a home computer to review their bank accounts. And because of features like mobile deposit, they don’t have to visit a branch to deposit a check. They just have to sign the check, snap a picture of it and send it to the bank through a mobile banking app.

2. User Friendly Services and Control

With a few swipes and a maybe a tap or two, customers can easily pay friends before leaving the restaurant table, pay a bill while relaxing on the beach, and review account balances to avoid overdraft or late fees. Lost or stolen debit card? Lakeland Bank’s Card Control feature allows customers to remotely turn their debit card off and on for these situations plus offers location and spending limit controls to improve money management.

3. Security

User id, passwords, and multi-factor authentication are common security features, but more banks are offering biometric login features like Touch and Face ID. Customers can quickly and securely log into Lakeland’s Mobile Banking App using this type of technology.

The Double Your Deposit Sweepstakes will run from September 1 through October 1, 2020. Customers will receive one entry into the sweepstakes every time they make a qualified mobile deposit. Five weekly winners will be randomly selected and will be awarded their winnings via direct deposit. Winners will be announced after prizes have been claimed. Mail-in entries are acceptable.
