How it works:
- If a Synergy Credit Union member takes a selfie or photo of spending their rewards locally (in front of the local business or non-profit/photo of the local business or non-profit building/making an online purchase or donation) AND tag Synergy Credit Union with the photo and description on one of Synergy’s social media channels* OR send Synergy the photo and message through synergycu.ca (which will then be shared on Synergy social media channels), they will be entered for a chance to win 1 grand prize of $500 or one of 4 secondary prizes of $250. Winners must visit their local branch to pick up their prize.
