ASPCA Announces New Credit & Debit Card Program with Bank of America

December 21, 2010
NEW YORK-The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced a new credit and debit card program with Bank of America. Through the new card program, the ASPCA will receive a $100 donation for each new ASPCA Bank of America Rewards Credit Card applicant*. The ASPCA will also receive a percentage of all purchases made using the rewards card.

In addition, ASPCA supporters can now open a Bank of America checking account-with accompanying debit card-which also benefits the ASPCA. Supporters can open a checking account with Bank of America, and a percentage of all purchases made using the debit card will be contributed to the ASPCA for each Bank of America account opened.

"People use their card at the checkout counter without giving it much thought, but now they can shop knowing their every day purchases are helping to save lives," said Elysia Howard, Vice President of Marketing & Licensing for the ASPCA. "It's such a simple way to be able to help support our mission, but for us, it could mean a world of change."

ASPCA supporters who currently have an ASPCA credit card through another bank should note that the ASPCA's relationship with all other banks has ended. As of August 2010, Bank of America is now the only credit card that supports the ASPCA with every purchase.
