Video: The Day an ATM became an “Automated Thank You Machine”

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/03/14

TD Canada Trust blows clients away with its touching way of showing gratitude.

TD Canada Trust, a financial institution, wanted to show deserving, long-time customers some appreciation so it surprised them at the ATM one day with a few gifts: One mom received two RESP deposits of $1000 for her children’s college fund, as well as tickets to take them to Disneyland. Another woman received a trip back home to Trinidad to visit her only daughter, who was in recovery from cancer surgery. One man, a huge fan of the Toronto Blue Jays, received a jersey, a visit from a member of the team, and the news that he’d be throwing the first pitch at an upcoming game. Beyond the publicity for TD Canada Trust, the video shows us that no matter who you are, being showered with a meaningful thank you goes a very long way.
