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 offers available.
Card-linked offers help solve that problem by givingmerchants 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.
