So, a few weeks ago, some friends of ours told us that their bank was doing a customer appreciation week. One of the days included an hour of Plinko during which you could win $1, 3, 5, or 10 or $5 and a chance to win a $500 CD. Well, not being patrons of this particular institution, we felt a little silly participating in their customer appreciation activities, but our friends assured us that you didn’t need to bank there, and if you won the CD they would just open an account for you. So to Plinko we went:

We played the game, walking away with a total of $12, plus I won the chance to win the CD later that day in the drawing. We went to Five Guys to spend our hard won cash and went about our business…until a letter came in the mail 5 days later announcing that I had won the CD!
I have to say, I felt a little sheepish when I went to claim my prize and I had to admit that I didn’t actually have an account there. They didn’t seem to mind and my money is maturing as I type. The upside is that when customer appreciation week rolls around next year, I will be a card carrying member. And you can bet that I will be playing Plinko!
