CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --LendingTree, the nation's

The ad, titled "Boxers", outperformed competitors in the mortgage category by
over 22%. The Ace Metrix qualification methodology is based on an ad's
ability to distinguish itself from its peer set. The mortgage category is
generally difficult to score well in due to lower incidence rates but the new
LendingTree ad outperformed competition and scored well in the likeability,
watchability and attention categories.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for LendingTree," said Fred Saunders,
SVP, Marketing at LendingTree. "The mortgage category has a history of very
low-involvement from consumers,and just breaking through can be difficult.
Having high engagement and effectiveness with our advertising is great to
see. Given our spend levels relative to the others on this list, it's a
testament to the power of a good idea."
