We are excited to work with the Rewards Network team to raise awareness about this program and this great cause.

Rewards Network, a leading provider of marketing services and dining rewards programs, has partnered with MasterCard to support their Dig In & Do Good campaign benefiting Stand Up To Cancer. From now through September 28, 2013, when MasterCard cardholders spend $10 or more when dining out or ordering in using their card, MasterCard will donate up to $4 million to Stand Up To Cancer, one precious cent at time.

This campaign makes it easy for consumers to get involved by doing what they already do on a regular basis: dining out. A donation will automatically be made to Stand Up To Cancer by MasterCard when consumers dine out across the country using their MasterCard cards.

“We are excited to work with the Rewards Network team to raise awareness about this program and this great cause,” said Cheryl Guerin, Group Executive U.S. Marketing, MasterCard. “Placing point of sale materials in Rewards Network restaurants is a perfect way to expand consumer awareness of the Dig In & Do Good initiative. We want consumers to know they can contribute to a worthwhile cause just by using their MasterCard card, and it’s a great way for restaurants to help the cause, as well. The faster we get to $4 million, the better."

“We are pleased to be supporting MasterCard and their quest to donate $4 million to Stand Up To Cancer. Our Network of restaurants provides a perfect outlet to help spread the word about this program,” stated Megan Flynn, SVP of Loyalty and Business Development at Rewards Network. “Our team is in market providing promotional materials for restaurants, furthering awareness when diners are at the point of sale. We’re honored to help support this tremendous initiative.”
