Nationwide Campaign Aims to Focus Consumers’ Attention on Making Every Dollar Work Harder

MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minnesota, July 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thanks to requests on social media from local area residents, digital financial services company Ally today announced it is adding Minneapolis-St. Paul to the list of cities for its Hardest Working Dollar campaign, which was initially launched in early June. Now the company is circulating hundreds of Ally Hardest Working Dollars around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to underscore its commitment to be “home of the hardest working dollar.”

“We believe being an ally for our customers’ financial well-being means encouraging them to focus on the products and services that will improve their financial lives for the long run,” said Diane Morais, president of Consumer & Commercial Banking Products at Ally Bank. “Our hope is that this campaign will get the people of Minneapolis-St. Paul to look at their dollars and think: could my hard-earned dollars be working even harder for me?”
