Debit to Win It

Use Your Debit Card for a Chance to Win $750!

Just pay with your card to be entered to win – it’s that simple.

Cobalt Credit Union will be giving away $750 to one lucky winner every month through December 2024! The key to your chance of winning is to have a personal Cobalt Checking Account and to use your Cobalt Debit Card for everyday purchases.

Each month, we'll hold a random drawing from all eligible entries received for that month. For example, if you use your card 15 times, your name will be included in the drawing 15 times. The more you use your card, the more chances you'll have to win!

Every purchase of $5.00 or greater earns you an additional chance to win in that month's drawing.
