More Than 600,000 U.S. Bank Customers Receiving Checking That Pays Rebate This Month

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov 20, 2002 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- More than 600,000 U.S. Bank customers are seeing a cash benefit from using their U.S. Bank Visa Check Card as U.S. Bank issues rebates from its exclusive Checking That Pays program this month.

To celebrate the program, U.S. Bank is recognizing top rebate customers with activities led by local market presidents in branch offices across the country. Branches will be decorated and branch employees will remind customers who are not in the program to start building next year's rebate by signing-up for Checking That Pays.

"People are genuinely excited about Checking That Pays, and why not? We're essentially giving our customers something for nothing," said Patricia Wesner, executive vice president of U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions. "The program is free, and customers earn the rebate for doing things they do every day anyway, like buying groceries or paying for gas with their U.S. Bank Check Card."

U.S. Bank Checking That Pays gives customers a cash rebate of up to one percent of the purchases made using their U.S. Bank Check Card. It's a welcome bonus at a time when many people begin their holiday shopping.

"We've seen a tremendous adoption of the U.S. Bank Check Card and Checking That Pays in the last six months as it has become available to more people," Wesner said. "We expect even more to sign-on as friends and family talk about their rebate over the holidays."
