Heartland Bank and Trust Company supports ISU Athletics with “Spirit design” debit cards


BLOOMINGTON, IL—Working with Illinois State University Athletics, Heartland Bank and Trust Company is proud to offer their customers the option to choose to showcase the Illinois State University Redbirds design on their debit cards.  “Offering optional designs on debit cards may be new, but customers have been doing it for years on their checks,” stated Diane Lanier, Chief Retail Officer.  “With the world going more electronic, and a continued focus on the environment, we wanted to offer our customers personal options on their debit cards other than our standard design.” 


More than just a custom card design program, the Spirit Debit Cards also support local schools “Heartland Bank is proud to offer Spirit Debit Cards,” said Fred Drake, Chairman and CEO.  “We are always looking for ways to reach out to our communities and show our support.  Heartland Bank is excited to offer this new customized option to our customers and financially assist the school of their choice as well.”

This option will allow customers to select the school design of their choice such as the Illinois State University Redbirds for a cost of $10. With each debit card ordered, Heartland Bank will donate $5 back to Illinois State Athletics, Weisbecker Scholarship Fund, directly supporting Illinois State student-athletes.  A standard debit card is still available without customization at no charge. Customers can pre-order this option through Heartland Bank’s website at www.hbtbank.com/redbirds or contact one of their local offices.  The full list of participating schools is available on the Heartland Bank website.
