HARRISBURG, Pa., June 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Education Services (AES) has launched a unique student loan rebate program that benefits student loan borrowers as they repay their AES-serviced student loans. StudentLoanRebates.com is a unique network of programs and merchants offering more rebate choices than the typical single rebate program. AES has teamed with some of the best rewards programs around, including Upromise, the largest college savings rewards program, Grad Gold and Jellyfish, to help student loan borrowers earn rebates while shopping. These rebates are then applied to the borrower's AES-serviced student loan balance, allowing them to repay their loan faster. "No other major rebate program brings all the big players into one convenient location," said Dick Willey, AES President and CEO. "StudentLoanRebates.com brings multiple business partners together, specializing in different areas of shopping, making it possible for members to benefit without changing their shopping habits to maximize their student loan rebate potential. Participants can repay their student loans faster -- saving money -- without costing them anything extra." Borrowers with AES-serviced student loans can create their free account at http://www.StudentLoanRebates.com. In 2002, AES teamed up with Upromise -- allowing its members to apply their Upromise rewards to borrower's AES-serviced loan balances. "We wanted to build upon the success of this program and provide even more opportunities for our borrowers to earn money back to help pay for their education," explained Willey. "StudentLoanRebates.com is the perfect solution -- something for everyone." Little Grad, Inc. has partnered with AES to create a new brand, Grad Gold, allowing members to earn rebates at more than 1,700 online merchants at the Grad Gold online mall. Jellyfish.com offers an innovative rewards program where members initiate the purchase of an item that they're looking for and merchants bid for the purchase. The purchase savings can be applied to the borrower's student loan balance. AES expects to add more partners and merchants to the program, providing increased access to rebate programs and rebate choices, all from one convenient website.
