BOSTON, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SmarterBucks®, a revolutionary rewards program that helps pay down your student loans faster, launched the SmarterBucks Marketplace with hundreds of merchants (http://www.smarterbucks.com/marketplace). At the SmarterBucks Marketplace members can score great deals on their favorite brands and earn between 2%-16% back in rewards that will help them reduce their student loan debt.
"We know that this is the time of year when the best deals can be found and when you tend to spend the most money," said Kevin Walker co-founder and CEO of SimpleTuition, the company behind SmarterBucks and SmarterBank. "With the SmarterBucks Marketplace and rewards program, we are helping our customers get something back on money they were already planning to spend."
Starting Cyber Monday, November 26th, SmarterBucks is announcing that its members can receive 50% more in bonus rewards by shopping in the SmarterBucks Marketplace from now until the end of the year. According to the National Retail Federation, the average holiday shopper will spend $520 on gifts this year. For SmarterBucks customers, that could mean up to $40 in student loan payments via the SmarterBucks program.
Retailers in the SmarterBucks Marketplace include Apple, Target.com, Banana Republic, Crate and Barrel, J.Crew, eBay, and hundreds more. SmarterBucks rewards can be earned with any Visa®, Mastercard®, or Discover® debit or credit card, but you can earn even more rewards when you use your SmarterBank Visa® Debit Card.
