Impact your customer’s path to purchase

Banks integrate our ads to help customers plan where they’ll spend and save. Customers engage with the ads to earn cash back and see them as a valuable perk for using their bank’s debit or credit card.

When weighing whether to buy from one store or another, relevant, targeted offers delivered through the Cardlytics platform act as that critical tipping point to influence purchase decisions.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3

Click. Shop. Earn. To get cash back, customers simply activate their offers, then buy online or in-store. When they purchase, their bank automatically deposits money back into their account.

It’s simple for marketers too. Just tell us the campaign goal, and we do the rest. It’s a pay-for-performance platform where we manage everything from ad copy to paying customer rewards. There are no hidden fees or production costs.

Easy as 1-2-3
Fraud free

Ads in banks are as safe as it gets

Fraud free. Banking’s “Know Your Customer” regulations ensure every impression is served to a real person. Plus, only people 18 or older can open an account – which means all 167M bank customers in our platform are adults.

Brand safe. There’s no inappropriate or controversial content in banks’ digital channels. We only display ads within online banking, mobile banking apps, or bank emails.


“No other company we’ve worked with has been able to prove incremental improvements in ROI, and we attribute that to Cardlytics’ powerful purchase insights.”
