Back in the day, banks would give away classic iPods, iPod nanos, and most recently, iPod touch. Now, the latest banking promotion levels up a notch as Citizen’s Bank and Trust offers you an iPad2. That’s right, sign up to a checking account with this bank, and you stand a chance of winning the coveted iPad2.

To join, simply open a checking account with Citizen’s Bank and Trust on August 5th, 2011. An alternative means of entry is by dropping an entry slip to any one of Citizen’s Bank and Trust’s 23 branches. The entries must be on a 3″ by 5″ index card, and the information such as name, street address, city, zip code, and phone number must be written in hand. Any entries generated by computers or other devices will be considered as null and void. Each entry must be dropped on August 5th.

During the day of the sweepstakes (August 8th, 2011), two ipad2 32gb will be given away. Winners need not be present during the draw, but they must be able to present eligibility.

1. Totally FREE Checking Account – This account requires no minimum balance and it has no monthly service fees. You are given unlimited check writing with only a low $50 opening deposit.
