The American DreamCard™ MasterCard® Sweepstakes winner for April was Carolyn Mathews, a retired receptionist of Dothan City Schools, where she worked for 21 years.

Mathews’ reaction when being told she had won the $25,000 monthly jackpot was, “I’m in a state of shock!” Her plans now are to invest the money and enjoy her retirement. Mathews, a valued cardholder since November, has an all American family, including a son who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and now serves in the Marine Corps.

The award-winning American DreamCard was recognized as one of the most innovative new credit cards for 2004 by®, Inc., a leading payment and credit card industry publisher renowned for its independence, credibility and fairness.

Direct Merchants Credit Card Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of Metris Companies Inc. (NYSE:MXT), launched the American DreamCard Platinum MasterCard in the Fall of 2004. The innovative credit card program has awarded $150,000 to date through a sweepstakes that gives cardholders an opportunity to win a large monthly cash jackpot for every $1 they spend, up to 1,000 entries per purchase.

The American DreamCard is not a lottery; it is a MasterCard, so there is no need to stand in line, buy tickets or pick numbers. Cardholders simply use the card for everyday purchases and get an entry for every net $1 spent on the American DreamCard (up to 1,000 entries per purchase)*. The monthly jackpot may grow with the amount of money spent on the American DreamCard by all American DreamCard cardholders. Credit applications are being taken at, and applicants receive 1,000 sweepstakes entries just for completing an application. The credit card has no annual fee and a competitive annual percentage rate.

No purchase is necessary. Sweepstakes is open to US residents, 18 years or older. Void where prohibited. Current Sweepstakes ends and entries expire 9/30/05. New sweepstakes starts 10/1/05 and ends 9/30/06.
