#CheckIntoPink this October!

Our fifth annual #CheckIntoPink social campaign launched on October 1 to help spread knowledge and awareness of breast cancer. The campaign runs throughout the month, and is designed to guide our audience to CheckIntoCash.com/gopink, an informational page featuring tips and other educational resources.

“We’re proud to launch our fifth Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign,” said Check Into Cash President Steve Scoggins. “We’re going pink, yes, but we’re doing more. By sharing information on preventative measures, we can help ourselves and our communities stay aware of preventative measures and risk factors. We’re learning more and making progress every day.”

A few sobering facts to keep in mind:

  • A woman has about a one in eight chance in her lifetime of being diagnosed with breast cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute
  • Most women (about eight out of 10) who get breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease
  • The leading risk factor for breast cancer is simply being a woman. Though breast cancer does occur in men, the disease is 100 times more common in women
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes

 

The focal point of our #CheckIntoPink campaign is the Go Pink informational webpage filled with helpful links and resources about getting involved and learning more about breast cancer prevention. This campaign leverages the strengths and immediacies of social media, texting (SMS), and email to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month and recommend to others to show their support by supporting the search for the cure.

“We encourage businesses and individuals to help us support Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Scoggins. “The more we educate ourselves and others, the closer we get to a cure.”

Want more information about breast cancer risk, prevention, and treatment? Please click on CheckIntoCash.com/gopink and NationalBreastCancer.org. This is one battle that will be fought until won.

Check Into Cash is Celebrating its 25th Anniversary

Check Into Cash will begin celebrating in honor of the company’s 25th Anniversary this June. Employees and customers alike are invited to be part of the spirit of the anniversary as well. To truly showcase the company’s accomplishments and growth over the last quarter-century, they’ve built an educational campaign full of milestones and momentous occasions that have taken place within the company since its inception. Check Into Cash will also be running a celebratory giveaway that splits $25,000 between 25 lucky winners as a way to thank their customers and the communities that have been a part of the company’s achievements.

“Company pride is certainly going to be strong this summer,” said Check Into Cash President Steve Scoggins. “The company feels like one big family now more than ever. And we’ve been serving our communities and families for 25 years – that’s definitely worth celebrating.”

The celebration will mostly take place in June, the company’s birthday month, but the educational campaign and temporary re-skin of the website will remain in place until the end of the year to fully showcase company pride.

Holy Superheroes in Our Midst – The Batmobile Is Coming to Select Chattanooga and Cleveland, TN Check Into Cash Stores

The 1966 Batmobile has made its way from beneath stately Wayne Manor and will be visiting select Check Into Cash stores in the Cleveland and Chattanooga areas during April and May.

When was the last time you got to hang out with a true legend?

All friends and family, customers and staff, and lovers of Super Heroes and their wheels are cordially invited. Super Villains need not bother – we’re no Joker!

This is the 1960’s TV series model designed by the famed automotive Kar Kustomizer George Barris. It’s turned heads and set the bar for superhero cool for over 50 years. No other automobile can claim bubble canopies, rocket tubes, the Bat Beam, a Detect-A-Scope, and of course, the Bat Phone. There have been other iterations over the years, but none can touch this concept’s iconic Bat-presence or visual POW!
With its atomic batteries fully charged and jet turbine exhaust ablaze, the Batmobile will be swooping into these five Check Into Cash stores in April and May:

Wednesday – Saturday, April 4-7
4620 Hwy. 58
Chattanooga, TN 37416
(423) 893-8866

Wednesday – Saturday, April 11-14
Village Green Town Center
201 Keith St.
Cleveland, TN 37311
(423) 479-2000

Wednesday – Saturday, April 18-21
6101 Ringgold Rd.
East Ridge, TN 37412
(423) 499-5900

Wednesday – Saturday, April 25-28
Across from Walgreens – Dalton Pike
2398 McGrady Dr. SE
Cleveland, TN 37323
(423) 479-2166

Wednesday – Saturday, May 2-5
St. Elmo
3800 Tennessee Ave.
Chattanooga, TN 37409
(423) 822-9803

Don’t miss your chance to spend time with a Bat-legend! Bring the kids and family, get a professionally taken souvenir Bat-photo, and maybe even catch a glimpse of Batman and Robin, provided they’re not off fighting crime somewhere.
But do be there – opportunities like these are scarcer than Caped Crusaders themselves.

The 1966 Batmobile

About The 1966 Batmobile

This Batmobile is on loan for this special tour. It’s owned by Check Into Cash’s Chairman and CEO, Allan Jones, and is part of the Creekridge Classic Car collection. Originally based on the 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, the vehicle that would become the famed 1966 TV Batmobile was sold to legendary Hollywood auto Kustomizer George Barris for $1.00 in December 1965, and immediately became one of the stars of the series. In addition to Batman, the Penguin, Robin, the Riddler, King Tut, Alfred, Catwoman, and the Bookworm drove it during the show’s 120-episode run.
