Stickers are limited to one per visit/day – two if depositing the Coin Machine Receipt amount.
Every card filled with five stickers can be “Cashed In” for a gift from the Dragon’s Lair or saved and combined with other filled cards for more valuable treasures.
A newsletter will accompany quarterly statements. It will have updates, announcements, and new items in the Dragon’s Lair, etc.
Each member will receive a Birthday Card – with a “Birthday Bonus Sticker” inside – from Dollar the Dragon, to celebrate their “Big Day”.
Members can “Cash In” their cards by visiting or mailing to any office and identifying the item(s) they wish to get. Some items – especially the higher redemption value ones – may not be available at the Branch. These requests are forwarded to the Club Coordinator for processing.
Special Club Saver Cards
The Special Club Cards accommodate up to 5 stickers and give members a way to track their progress. For every deposit made by visiting any HNB Office, a Dollar the Dragon Club Member will receive one coin sticker on their card. They will receive one additional coin sticker if deposit is made using a receipt from one of our Coin Sorting & Counting Machines located in each Branch Lobby. Deposits by mail, ATM, or direct deposit do not qualify for coin stickers. Club members can save their coin stickers and then “Cash In” their filled cards for a variety of Treasures from the Dragon’s Lair. Throughout the year special bonus items may be awarded to those who have reached a certain number of stickers at that time. Not all items may be available for immediate delivery when Club Members visit the bank to redeem their card & stickers.
