Low interest rates have some referring to mortgages and other loans as free money.

But one local bank is taking the concept a step further with a $25,000 sweepstakes contest. And this money doesn’t have to be paid back.

Warren-based Northwest Savings Bank is calling the contest the “$25,000 Cash for That Sweepstakes.”

The bank plans to draw a single winner from all entries on May 31 and award a check for $25,000 to the winner.

“Northwest Savings bank has been helping people buy and renovate homes since we were founded in 1896,” said Dottie Lobdell, the bank’s vice president of mortgage lending. “We feel that offering a chance to win $25,000 ‘cash for that’ is a great way to thank our customers, friends and neighbors for their support, and allowing one of our neighbors to use that cash to carry out a home makeover or use the cash for any valid purpose.”

No transaction is required. Entry forms are available at any Northwest location. One need not be a customer to enter.
