"Everyone loves cash rebates with no strings attached – especially our members – part of the 120 million-strong age 50+ market of grandparents, boomers and seniors that control 75% of the nation's wealth. Best of all, the rebates may be used to buy anything, anywhere -- like any other debit card," said Steve Leber, Chairman and Co-CEO of Grandparents.com. "The enormous amount of what's known as 'breakage' in the rebate card business is a problem we aim to address on behalf of our members. No more filling out rebate cards and waiting six weeks to get your rebate, if it ever shows up."
, Co-CEO added, "As the marketing partner in the venture, Grandparents.com intends to make the Grand Card a staple that everyone will want to carry each time they visit a pharmacy or participating retailer.
After all, who does not want free cash?
And, the Grand Card is not limited to seniors. Everyone will be able to get it to obtain rebates on electronics, travel, car rentals, sports clubs, jewelry, and so many more other offerings we will have. This will be a great cross-marketing venue: Every affinity issuer will be able to market its products and services to customers of every other affinity card issuer, creating a huge national network of benefits for all cardholders."
