Fifth Third Joins with Revolution Money to Issue RevolutionCard
Revolution Money today announced that 5th Third Bank has joined the Revolution Money network as an issuing bank. The combination of Fifth Third Bank`s card-issuing capabilities with Revolution Money`s marketing and customer servicing and communication capabilities will provide a robust platform for expanded adoption of RevolutionCard.

"With Fifth Third as an issuing bank we have our largest opportunity yet to
significantly grow the RevolutionCard business," said Jason Hogg, founder and
CEO of Revolution Money. "Our partnership coincides with a time when consumers
are looking for the type of embedded value in every purchase that Revolution
Card provides."

With no interchange fees, RevolutionCard creates substantial cost savings for
merchants - savings they today are passing back to consumers in the form of
loyalty programs and incentives. As the first PIN-based credit card,
RevolutionCard provides cardholders peace-of-mind knowing that if they lose
their card an unauthorized person cannot use it without their PIN. Additionally,
RevolutionCard reduces the chance of identity theft as the card does not display
a cardholder`s name or signature. These consumer-oriented security features
benefit merchants by helping to reduce chargeback and fraud risk.

"We are excited to join the Revolution Money network and about the opportunity
it creates by providing Fifth Third with a new card distribution channel to
supplement our existing distribution channels," said Jon Groch, Fifth Third Bank
director of Bankcard Services. "We are confident that the value proposition the
Revolution Card provides will attract loyal customers seeking everyday value,
and enhanced security from their credit card."
