Deepen bank loyalty with a program that helps customers save on everyday purchases

We’re an advertising platform in banks’ digital channels

Through purchase data, we can see where and when customers buy both online and in-store. We use these insights to identify opportunity, target real people within their bank, and measure the actual sales impact of our ads. With over 186M bank customers on the platform, we help brands drive incremental sales and grow market share.

Purchase Intelligence: it’s changing the game

In 2008, Scott Grimes and Lynne Laube were bankers who understood the power of purchase data – if only it could be harnessed.

With insight into the regulations that financial institutions face, they designed a bank and privacy-friendly solution that would also serve as the foundation for marketing technology and analytics. In doing so, they linked two major industries: banking and marketing. And Cardlytics was born.
