WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BB&T (NYSE: BBT) today announced BB&T Deals, a service providing BB&T Debit Card clients an opportunity to earn cash back for using their BB&T cards. There are no fees for this service.

BB&T Deals is available within U by BB&T, the company's new online and mobile banking platform. Active cardholders receive targeted, relevant retail offers in U based on their card usage behavior. The more clients use their BB&T Debit Card, the more offers they receive and more opportunities they have to receive cash back on purchases. An estimated average cash back amount is $180 per year per cardholder.

"This new service provides a tremendous opportunity for our clients to receive cash back in their accounts by using a BB&T Debit Card to purchase items and services they normally use," said Scott Qualls, BB&T retail payments manager. "We believe offering this program is yet another way we can provide our clients with great value and benefits."

Offers are based on how clients currently shop to ensure the offers are relevant to each client. To redeem an offer, clients log into U by BB&T at or with the U by BB&T mobile app. Then, they select the offer by clicking on the BB&T Deals tile to add it to their debit card. Clients shop as usual with their BB&T Debit Card. No coupons are needed. Cash back for redeemed offers is automatically deposited into the client's designated BB&T account during the month following the purchase, for most purchases.
