Mercator Advisory Group’s latest research report, Debit Card Rewards: Taking a Focused Approach, discusses new competition faced by debit card issuers and suggests how then can keep their programs motivating yet cost-effective.
“Consumers today may have a more difficult time finding debit cards rewards from traditional financial institutions, but digital-only or challenger banks and merchants are filling the void. Some consumers, particularly those in younger demographic segments, which financial institutions want as customers, appear motivated to spend more in the pursuit of rewards and are taking their transactions and balances to these alternative payment options,” comments Sarah Grotta, Director, Debit and Alternative Products Advisory Service at Mercator Advisory Group and author of the report.
This report has 15 pages and 8 exhibits.
Companies mentioned in this report include: American Express, Axos Bank, Bank of America, BB&T, Consumers Credit Union, Cumberland Farms, Discover, Farmer’s State Bank, Fifth Third Bank, First United Bank and Trust, Green Dot Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Kroger, PNC Bank, Randolph Brooks FCU, Schools First FCU, Security Service FCU, Starbucks, SunCoast FCU, SunTrust Bank, and Target.
