MINNEAPOLIS & MOOSEHEART, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9,
2005--Moose International has created a new affinity credit card
partnership with U.S. Bank that generates donations to the Moose
organization each time a new card is activated and again each and
every time that card is used.
"The new Moose International credit card from U.S. Bank gives
members another way to support Moose activities by using the card to
pay for everyday purchases," said William Airey, director of marketing
and membership development at Moose International.
Members will have access to a variety of credit cards offered
through this U.S. Bank partnership, including one that earns reward
points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise, cash
and travel rewards. The partnership improves Moose International's
ability to offer members high-quality affinity credit products and
demonstrates U.S. Bank's commitment to be a key corporate partner.
"The Moose organization's 1.5 million members have a strong legacy
of giving back to their communities and this card will only magnify
the philanthropic power of this historic organization," said Tanya
Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank. "It
is our pleasure to provide valuable card products and services to the
Moose organization in support of its mission."
