U.S. Bank Encore Rewards Program for Small Businesses Blazes New Path for Industry

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 22, 2014-- U.S. Bank has introduced a unique way for small-business customers to earn bonus rewards for simply having a credit card and merchant processing relationship with U.S. Bank.

Unique to the financial services industry, the new rewards program, Encore, offers small-business customers extra rewards when they pair a U.S. Bank Business Edge™ Rewards Credit Card with a U.S. Bank Payment Solutions merchant account.

“This is the first time an American bank is giving small-business customers what they deserve: an easy way to earn rewards for combining their card purchasing and processing with one company,” said Cathi Stanton, head of small business credit cards at U.S. Bank.

“Small businesses have earned rewards with credit cards for years and now for the first time they can also earn rewards for taking payments,” said Megan Heinze, head of merchant payment solutions at U.S. Bank. “We continue to search for new and innovative ways to help our customers manage payments effortlessly so that they can focus their passion on where it matters most: helping their businesses to thrive.”

Signing up for Encore is easy. Customers:

  • open any U.S. Bank Business Edge Rewards Credit Card;
  • open any U.S. Bank Payment Solutions merchant account and
  • enroll online at USBankBusinessRewards.com.

When net monthly transactions are processed through their Payment Solutions merchant account, customers earn cash-back rewards or rewards points. The rewards can accumulate fast and with the U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Business EdgeTM Travel Rewards, just 20,000 FlexPoints equals an airline ticket worth up to $400.
