Technology Credit Union has kicked off 2010 by naming Ron Vogel as the Grow Your Green Super Saver of 2009.
The San Jose, California-based credit union launched its Grow Your Green campaign and online community last March, to encourage members to set and achieve savings goals throughout the year.
Not only did Vogel save consistently all year to reach his financial goals, he also shared many of his valuable money-saving tips with other Grow Your Green members. From advice on investing to tips on finding free music and videos on the Internet, Vogel regularly contributed to the Grow Your Green community, posting several blog entries each week.
In addition to bragging rights, Vogel has received $1,000.
Although the campaign ended Dec. 31, 2009, the over $1.2 billion credit union will continue to offer money saving tips and articles on personal finance topics through its regular blog (www.techcublog.com) and in-house magazine, Money Savvy.
