Through its marketing arrangement with the association, Sprint is proud to be part of the association's valuable package of products and services for Asian Americans, said Jim Dodd, Sprint assistant vice president for Asian marketing.

"This arrangement with the association is a unique way for Sprint to forge a competitive advantage in the U.S. Asian marketplace for telecommunications, which is growing significantly," Dodd said, adding that total volume for U.S. calls to the Asia/Pacific region has increased at least 17 percent in each of the last four years.

"The membership program provides Sprint with an excellent vehicle in which we will market Sprint products and bundle them together with products of the association's other member companies," Dodd said. "The program also opens up an exclusive new sales channel through which the association will promote Sprint products."

Asian Americans who sign up for Sprint through the association will receive:
    --   Automatic membership in the Asian American Association
         buying club, ensuring eligibility for deep discounts on
         a wide array of products and services;
    --   Additional discounted calling hours on Sprint's lead
         international calling plan, Sprint Sense International,
         specifically for association members;
    --   Special promotions on top of the already discounted
         Sprint Sense International rates;
    --   Low rates on domestic calls with the Sprint Sense
         dime-a-minute calling plan.


Membership in the Asian American Association entitles Asian Americans to save on a variety of other needs: personal, travel and entertainment, communications and insurance. Among the offers: 25 percent off prescription eye wear from Pearle Vision; up to 30 percent off major hotels; 15 percent off Avis car rentals; and coupons to major theme and amusement parks across the country.

With Sprint long distance, members of the Asian American Association get low rates on every call -- international and domestic. Sprint Sense International, a global calling plan, provides a clear, bottom-line price for all international long distance calls. For example, Asian Americans can call Taiwan for only 61 cents a minute, or $3.05 for a 5- minute call between 8:00 p.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and all weekend (U.S. time). Callers on Sprint Sense and Sprint Sense International now get an added bonus -- 10 percent cash back on their annual long distance bill. The minimum cash back checks are $25.
