GTE Federal Credit Union is giving local 12- to 22-year olds someone they can relate to with its new U22 account.
Representing the both ends of the U22 age spectrum are 'Suite' Caroline Kudelko, a 12-year old accomplished singer, songwriter, and musician, and Alex Perez, an aspiring actor and self-described 'broke' college student who won the U22 spokesperson open casting call.
The U22 account allows parents to add funds and monitor their children's spending activity. It also features a debit card with reward points, free online account access and bill pay, mobile account access, and one overdraft per month forgiven.
Perez will be featured in upcoming GTE FCU television and radio ads and billboards promoting the U22 account. He will also document his progress toward his financial goals-one of which is a new car-via the U22 microsite (www.U224U.com) and social networking sites such as Twitter, MySpace and Facebook.
Kudelko will also document her progress via Twitter, her MySpace page, her Website, www.suitecarolinemusic.com, and the U22 microsite. Her MySpace page (www.myspace.com/floridasuitecaroline) has over 650,000 visitors.
