New Pepperdine University Credit Card from U.S. Bank Aims to Generate New Wave of Support from Alumni and Friends

MINNEAPOLIS & MALIBU, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 7, 2005--Pepperdine University has created a new affinity credit card partnership with U.S. Bank that generates donations to the Pepperdine Alumni Association each time a new card is activated and repeatedly thereafter each time the card is used.

The card depicts a breath-taking view of the Malibu Campus. Alumni will have access to three credit card products offered through this U.S. Bank partnership, including one that earns reward points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise and travel rewards and another that provides cash back on purchases.

"We are thrilled to partner with US Bank and offer a competitive card with great rewards for our alumni, parents, and friends. It has never been easier to show Pepperdine pride and give back to the University in the process," said Jennifer Ostan, Manager of Alumni Board and Services.

"We are confident that Pepperdine and its alumni and friends will see immediate value from the affinity card program because it so quickly and directly impacts the programs and mission of the university," said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank. "We look forward to a long and successful relationship with this renowned institution."

Courses are taught in Malibu, at six graduate campuses in Southern California and at international campuses in Germany, England, Italy, and Argentina.
