Bremer Bank and MasterCard Worldwide today announced that Bremer has converted its signature debit portfolio to MasterCard. Bremer now issues Platinum Debit MasterCard cards for general banking customers, Debit MasterCard BusinessCard for business clients and World Debit MasterCard cards for private banking clients.

"We immediately recognized the value of partnering with MasterCard to meet the diverse needs of our cardholders," said Rita Juul, Vice President and Enterprise Product Manager, Bremer Bank. "MasterCard has a unique suite of debit products that offer our clients enhanced value in their everyday spending. Through this agreement, we are differentiating our card portfolio to help ensure that our cardholders enjoy flexibility, security and control in managing their finances, combined with access to discounts and special offers."

In Debit MasterCard BusinessCard, Bremer's business clients now have access to increased purchasing flexibility, convenience and safety for all their business-related expenses, as compared to cash or checks. Detailed monthly statements enable easy account reconciliation and expense reporting for efficient money management. In addition, the card reduces the need to use personal funds for business purchases and provides capabilities to set spending controls for employees.

With World Debit MasterCard, Bremer Bank will provide a premium debit product that meets the unique, everyday payment needs and preferences of affluent cardholders. World Debit MasterCard cardholders receive exclusive benefits, including access to World.MasterCard.com and MasterCard MarketPlace Plus, where they can take advantage of invitation-only VIP shopping, exclusive access to private events, free shipping, gifts, and other unique privileges. In addition, they can enjoy enhanced built-in security features and MasterCard Purchase Assurance coverage against theft protection for greater peace of mind when shopping.

"Consumers and business owners are looking to get the most out of their daily financial activities, from maximizing savings and time to having access to unique offers and experiences," said John Ainsworth, Group Head, U.S. Markets, MasterCard Worldwide. "Bremer Bank's decision to convert to MasterCard as its exclusive debit partner will help enhance its card offering and better respond to the needs of its retail banking customers."
