WILMINGTON, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Barclays US Consumer Bank announced a multi-year extension of its co-branded credit card agreement with Upromise® to issue the Upromise Mastercard® through 2027. The Upromise Mastercard, issued by Barclays since 2012, is designed for families saving for their children’s college education.

“Barclays is focused on helping our strategic partners succeed by creating products and experiences that drive greater loyalty while providing more ways for consumers to unlock value with the brands they love,” said Bob Highland, Head of Cards and Partnerships, Barclays US Consumer Bank. “Upromise has been a valued partner of Barclays for over eight years, and we are thrilled to extend our agreement with them to help individuals save for their children’s college education and get the most for their money.”

The contract extension is the first agreement Barclays has entered into with Upromise since Upromise was purchased by Prodege, LLC, an internet and media company comprised of leading consumer rewards platforms that deliver engaging content to more than 120 million members.

Chuck Davis, CEO & Chairman of Prodege, LLC, congratulated Barclays: “We are excited about extending our partnership with Barclays, allowing Upromise to provide families across the country with new opportunities to enhance college savings with rewards for everyday spending, shopping, and dining.”
