“It’s just a small gesture on our part to let our members know that we appreciate their business and encourage them to continue to use their Citadel credit card,” said John Egan, Loan Product Manager, Consumer Loan Division. “Some of the winners have been Citadel members for over 30 years and it felt great to be able to give something back to them.”

The winners span multiple counties throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Each winning member was contacted via phone and email and were pleasantly surprised when they heard the news.

“I honestly didn’t believe it at first, but once I heard the voicemail from John, I got so excited. This is awesome,” said one of the grand prize winners.

The next Citadel Spend & Get Sweepstakes will take place in the spring of 2024 so card holding members can look forward to having another shot at winning some extra cash next year. All you need is any Citadel credit card to participate in the contest. To learn more about Citadel’s credit card options, visit
