NEW YORK, June 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Laurel Road, an online lender and FDIC-insured bank, has announced an exclusive, first-of-its-kind partnership with MoviePass, the nation’s premier movie theater subscription service, designed to further amplify savings and value for its customers.
As part of the agreement, MoviePass customers who refinance their student loans with Laurel Road will receive a free annual membership to MoviePass. Laurel Road currently saves its customers $20,000 on average over the life of their loans, and this unique partnership will continue to provide savings for both Laurel Road and MoviePass communities.
The collaboration kicked off at the SXSW Film Festival in March, where the companies teamed up to offer free tickets to the SXSW premier of American Animals — a MoviePass Ventures film. Throughout the duration of this partnership, there is potential for similar exciting promotions, such as invite-only access to movie screenings.
“MoviePass and Laurel Road customers have the shared skill for spotting a tremendous value,” said Alyssa Schaefer, CMO and Head of Product Experience at Laurel Road. “We’re thrilled to partner with a brand that places the same unwavering premium on experience and savings. Together, we’re wholly focused on making customers’ money work even harder, so they can stay focused on the road ahead.”
“Laurel Road will be a strong partner as we continue working to provide the most affordable and beneficial offerings to our members,” said Mitch Lowe, MoviePass CEO. “We believe people should be able to work towards their long-term financial goals while not giving up the experiences they love — such as going to the movies. This partnership allows our community to benefit from both services and ultimately save more money along the way.”
