There’s no better deal than free, especially when you’re talking free gas for your car or truck.
Atlanta-area community bankers Thursday morning will be giving away $20 in gas to each of the first 200 people at Shell Food Mart, 1790 Howell Mill Road N.W., Atlanta.
Employees from Credit Union of Atlanta and Family Savings Credit Union will be staffing the giveaway, scheduled from 9-11 a.m.
The event is part of a nationwide “Take Back Your Banking” promotion touting Kasasa, a national brand of free checking and savings accounts available through community banks and credit unions. “We anticipate a long line of cars,” organizers said.
