Buy property, get iPad
Trying to take a bite out of sour loans on the books, Community Bank of Manatee is falling back on something that always sells: Apples.
Like most Gulf Coast financial institutions, the bank is swelling with non-performing loans and wants to move a bunch of foreclosed properties off the books.
“We want to strike deals in April and May so we thought that giving away Apple iPads would be a great way to publicize what we have available,” he explained in a release.
Marketing gimmicks aside, tech nuts looking for an easy way to obtain a product that will likely sell out quickly should note the fine print: “Subject to availability from Apple,” the release notes.
