ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 20, 2004--Pheasants Forever
(PF) has created a new affinity credit card partnership with U.S.
Bank. Through the partnership, U.S. Bank will be making a donation to
PF each time a new card is activated, and again each and every time
that card is used. U.S. Bank has also joined PF as a major sponsor of
Pheasant Fest 2005 to be held in Omaha, Nebraska this January.
"The new Pheasant Forever credit card from U.S. Bank should be all
pheasant hunters' primary credit card," says Howard Vincent, PF's
president and CEO. "Not only is this new PF card great on its own
merits of reward points, APR, and assorted perks, but it's the only
credit card that will help put pheasant habitat on the ground. This is
a great card for anyone and a must for the 2.5 million pheasant
hunters across the country." The new cards are available through the
PF website at www.pheasantsforever.org.
U.S. Bank will be offering PF members a variety of new credit card
products. One of these new products will be a credit card that earns
reward points, which can be redeemed for gift certificates,
merchandise, cash and travel rewards. Not only does this partnership
improve PF's ability to offer members high-quality affinity credit
products, but U.S. Bank has also stepped forward in a big financial
way as a key corporate partner for the long haul.
"U.S. Bank is excited to partner with Pheasants Forever," explains
Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank.
"U.S. Bank is committed to the excellent conservation work of
Pheasants Forever, and we look forward to the opportunities that exist
by bringing together the expertise of our two organizations. It is our
pleasure to provide valuable card products and services to PF members
in support of their mission."
"There is no doubt we've improved our ability to deliver habitat
to the ground through this new partnership with U.S. Bank," adds
Vincent. "U.S. Bank believes in our mission and they've stepped
forward in a big way. In return, I would ask all PF members to
consider U.S. Bank's new line of Pheasants Forever credit cards as
their new card option - the pheasants will benefit."

dedicated to the protection and enhancement of pheasant and other
