CHASE ANNOUNCES NEW BENEFITS PACKAGE FOR STUDENT CARD HOLDERS

 NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Chase Manhattan has introduced Chase Student Services -- a package of benefits designed exclusively for student credit cardholders.
 Available to both new and existing student cardholders, Chase Student Services features a broad range of travel and retail discounts and access to a 24-hour toll-free information line just for students.
 Every time they travel, students can obtain 5 percent discounts on the lowest-fare tickets that they can find on airlines, cruises, Amtrak and Eurail. There are no restrictions or blackout dates. Five percent discounts are also available on all rental cars and hotel accommodations. Students who purchase advertised travel packages will receive discounts of $50 to $100, depending on the length of the vacation.
 Students can also receive discounts of up to 20 percent at more than 25 national retailers in more than 8,000 locations nationwide including Sam Goody/Musicland, Gold's Gym, Nine West and Goodyear.
 To receive all travel and retail discounts, purchases must be made with a Chase MasterCard or Visa credit card.
 Chase Student Services' information line provides students with access to credit specialists who can provide general information about all types of credit and credit card services as well as assist with account inquiries. The Chase representatives can also provide credit reference letters for students to submit to prospective landlords and employers.
 Chase, which began a major marketing effort to students in September 1990, has taken a leadership position in providing students with an education in how to use credit responsibly.
 Chase makes available to all student cardholders a free credit guide entitled, "How to Avoid Bad Credit And Seven Other Nightmares." Designed to teach students the essentials of credit, the guide includes information about how a credit card works, how a credit bureau operates, and why a good credit history is important.
 Chase offers student credit cards with a minimum credit line of $500. To qualify, students need proof of college or university enrollment and a good credit history. There is no minimum income requirement and they are not required to have a parental cosigner.
 All Chase credit cards currently offer automatic merchandise protection and an extended warranty program.
 Special student applications can be obtained by calling the Chase Information Center, 1-800-AT-CHASE, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are also available at colleges and universities nationwide.
