AT&T-SPONSORED PROGRAM NOW OFFERS DISCOUNTS ON INTERNATIONAL SERVICES FROM SIX COMPANIES

 SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE: T) is sponsoring a new program with six other corporations to help small and mid-sized businesses grow internationally. Called Global Contacts, the program offers discounts that are usually only available to high-volume users of selected products.
 Companies that join Global Contacts can receive discounts from 10 to 50 percent from Avis Rent A Car, Delta Air Lines, ITT Sheraton Corp., United Parcel Service, Dustin Discount Software, and Penny Wise Office Supplies.
 There is no initial or monthly charge for a business to join Global Contacts. To qualify, a company must spend $200 monthly for AT&T international calls.
 The Global Contacts program offers these discounts:
 Avis Rent A Car -- up to 40-percent savings on car rentals outside the United States.
 Delta Air Lines -- $50 to $300 savings on international flights.
 ITT Sheraton Hotels -- up to 30-percent savings on room rates.
 United Parcel Service -- up to 20-percent savings on UPS Worldwide Express shipping.
 Penny Wise Office Supplies -- discounts on many products, including up to 40 percent off the price of fax paper.
 Dustin Discount Software -- significant savings every quarter on software programs.
 "Companies that do business internationally are important to AT&T -- and to the growth of the U.S. economy," said Jim Pagos, marketing vice president of AT&T's Business Communications Services unit. "We want to help small and medium-sized companies 'go global.' The services we selected for the Global Contacts program -- as well as our own telecommunications services -- are critical to doing business internationally."
 "Many of our customers who do business internationally could save hundreds or thousands of dollars through the Global Contacts program," Pagos said. "And we expect many more companies that are not already AT&T international customers will decide to switch to AT&T to take advantage of the extra value the program provides."
 Businesses can receive more information on discounts and order a free Global Contacts membership kit by calling 1-800-238-7778.
