5 5 Community Updates Sperry Proudly Supported the Maurer Foundation at their Annual Pink Bowl Six teams of Sperry employees and their families participated at this bowling event, helping to raise awareness and over $21k for The Maurer Foundation. Once again, it was a great afternoon out and a great way to beat the cold weather, said Executive Director Susan Samaroo. This year s Battle of the Banks really added a fun competitive element for our guests and everyone really enjoyed the festivities while keeping in mind the importance of our mission here at The Maurer Foundation.

Sperry Offers Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Congratulations Sperry Raffle Winners $250- Credit Your Debits Raffle * Roxanne G December 14 Marci P January 15 Donald K February 15 $100- Refer-a-Friend Raffle Patricia K. & Sreekala T December 14 $50- Refer-a-Friend Members Sonia S, Shibu K, Dinesh A, Dion F, Bronden B, Warren S Your name could be here next time! Simply Refer your friends and family to Sperry. It s that easy to be in it and (hopefully) win it! *$250 Credit Your Debits Raffle offer ended as of February Did you know that if your new or used vehicle is totaled, or stolen and not recovered, your insurance may not pay off the total amount owed? Due to depreciation, your loan balance can be higher than the Actual Cash Value (ACV) which is established by your insurance company, so you could still owe thousands of dollars after the insurance settlement. It takes more than auto insurance to protect your investment, and Sperry has the solution for you. Protect your Investment with GAP- Guaranteed Asset Protection * : GAP makes up the difference between what insurance covers and the amount you owe in most cases. You could be free and clear instead of paying off a substantial loan balance before you can even think about shopping for a new vehicle. The purchase of GAP is optional, and when purchased through Sperry it costs much less than what you would pay at a dealership. You can add the cost of GAP to your loan amount so there is no out of pocket expense. You have up to 6 months to add GAP to your Sperry vehicle loan! Ask a Member Service Representative for more information about GAP. It will give you peace of mind when you make your next vehicle purchase. *Vehicle must be financed at your financial institution to be eligible for the purchase of GAP through Sperry. Whether or not you purchase GAP will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any existing credit agreement you have with our institution.
