As a financial institution, you understand the significance of providing exceptional value in today’s competitive and dynamic landscape. The retail and dining industries are equally competitive, with many merchants vying to engage with consumers during the purchasing process. Merchant-funded offers have emerged as a solution that many institutions use to collaborate with merchants to enhance the consumer purchasing experience.

What are Merchant-Funded Offers?

Merchant-funded offers are incentives that reward consumers for shopping with specific merchants. ampliFI’s merchant-funded offers give cardholders access to over 45,000 national and name-brand merchants, delivering diverse opportunities for cardholders to choose from. These offers are linked to your program and can only be accessed by using your rewards card, keeping your card top-of-wallet and reinforcing the value of your program.

This type of offer is in high demand among consumers. According to a recent report from PYMNTS Intelligence and Banyan1, 62% of millennials and 59% of consumers with children have used a merchant-funded offer in the last 12 months, highlighting specific audiences that these offers resonate with. The same report indicated that 65% of consumers with merchant-funded offers develop a deeper loyalty to their card provider, and 50% of millennials stated they would switch to companies that offer product-specific and merchant-funded offers.
