NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- American Express today announced it has signed a multi-year marketing agreement with ShopRunner.

Starting May 15, Cardmembers can enroll at www.shoprunner.com/americanexpress and begin enjoying a year of free two-day shipping at ShopRunner's more than 70 retail partners, such as Toys"R"Us, PetSmart, drugstore.com, and Sports Authority, among others. This promotional offer is available through May 15, 2014.
“We are always looking for ways to provide valuable benefits and services to our Cardmembers and this marketing relationship with ShopRunner does just that,” said Gunther Bright, Executive Vice President, Business Development for American Express US Consumer Services. “Shipping costs can really add up when shopping online and with this new offer, our Cardmembers can benefit from the savings that ShopRunner provides at many of their favorite places to shop.”
