WESTCHESTER, Ill. -- To encourage use of automated teller machines, Cirrus System Inc. has announced its fifth member promotion, which offers $180,000 in cash and prizes to consumers and to employees of participating member institutions in the United States and Canada.

Norwest Card Services and Bank of Montreal have already agreed to participate. Member institutions must sign up for the promotion by Jan. 25 to be eligible for prizes, which include Chrysler cars and cash.

"We encourage our members to use this promotion to attract new cardholders from their deposit base and activate existing cardholders by offering one more compelling reason to use their ATM or credit card," said Dan Bauer, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Cirrus.
