SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 6, 2000, Inc. (OTCBB:IWOW – news) through its innovative NET SAVINGS CARD(TM) program, has added Hertz Rent A Car as one of its valued Merchants providing a North America wide discount program to WOWtown Members. Hertz is just one example of the countless savings and discount programs that will be offered up via the NET SAVINGS CARD(TM) on both a global and localized basis.

WOWtown has more than 3,000 affiliates driving traffic to our sites and has increased membership by almost 300%. The network has recently increased to over 3.5-million hits per month, accessed by over 200,000 unique users per month during the primary rollout stage.

“Our program is about providing savings and discounts to our Membership through use of our NET SAVINGS CARD (TM)”, says Company president David Packman. “By expanding our portals and Membership base, WOWtown is effectively becoming a global savings and discount card program, using the power of the Internet strictly as the marketing medium.
