New Southern New Hampshire University Credit Card from U.S. Bank Gives Penmen Something to Write Home About

MINNEAPOLIS & MANCHESTER, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 5, 2005--Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has created a new affinity credit card partnership with U.S. Bank that generates donations to SNHU each time a new card is activated and again each and every time that card is used.

The program will offer a choice of three card design options featuring the Penmen logo, Robert Frost Hall and the new SNHU logo. Alumni, employees, students and friends of the university will have access to a variety of credit card products offered through this U.S. Bank partnership, including cards that earn reward points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise, cash and travel rewards.

"We are very excited about this new partnership with U.S. Bank. The new Southern New Hampshire University affinity credit card program will provide many outstanding benefits to our constituencies that were not previously available. In my opinion, with this program, everyone benefits - the cardholder, the university and the bank," said Michael DeBlasi, director of alumni and community relations at SNHU.

"Our goal is to provide a valuable card product for SNHU that benefits the university and its students while also embracing the Penmen spirit," said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank. "We look forward to the many opportunities that will arise for SNHU as a result of this program."

Based in Manchester, N.H., SNHU educates intellectually and culturally enriched individuals to be successful in their careers and contribute to their communities.

It provides a supportive and close-knit learning community, delivering engaging instruction in a flexible variety of formats.
