Cards, Payments and Financial Technology Symposium on February 10 in New York

Card linked offers stand at the unique intersection of the payments, social
media, advertising and retail industries. As the “offers” space has become
more popular, consumers have often found it cumbersome to take advantage of
the variety and amount of deals available. Card-linked offers help solve that
problem by giving merchants and advertisers the ability to deliver an offer or
deal to consumers via their credit, debit or other payment cards without
having to use a paper coupon, voucher or promotion code.
