SunTrust Banks, Inc. has announced it is giving away two tablets every day from now through the end of January to promote the use of Online Banking and Mobile Banking, including the new SunTrust Tablet App for iPad.
All current and any new SunTrust clients will automatically be entered to win the SunTrust Digital Sweepstakes by paying bills via Online Banking, Mobile Banking or Tablet App, activating eBills or transferring funds through Popmoney personal payments service. SunTrust clients can visit the App Store to download the new app and securely access their accounts with their Online Banking user ID and password. No purchase or other obligation is necessary to enter to win.
Similar to the SunTrust Mobile App, the Tablet App for iPad allows people to securely access their accounts to send payments, transfer money, deposit checks, view account activity and search for ATM or branch locations. In addition, the new Tablet App has expanded features, such as the ability to search transactions, view recent bill payments, check the running balance of checking and savings accounts and access financial tips and articles.
“At SunTrust, our purpose is to help our clients achieve a sense of financial well-being,” said Brad Dinsmore, Consumer Banking and Private Wealth Management executive. “More than half of our Online Banking clients are also using one or more of our Mobile Banking solutions, and this new app is another tool to help them take control of their finances at their convenience.”
