MasterCard Enhances Cardholder Shopping Experience Through “Daily Deals”

MasterCard (NYSE:MA) today announced plans to expand its support of issuer and merchant efforts to meet Americans’ desire for increased shopping value through relevant “daily deal” offers.

This daily deal content will initially be powered by Local Offer Network, a pioneer in deal aggregation and syndication services, and integrated with products and solutions delivered by MasterCard to issuers and through other network programs. Through these activities, MasterCard will help reinforce merchant and issuer connectivity with consumers through mobile, social media and traditional shopping channels.

“Increasingly, consumers are looking for a great deal and savings– whether that is in paper coupons or through digital channels that create a more enhanced holistic shopping experience,” said Mario Shiliashki, group head, U.S. Markets emerging payments lead, MasterCard. “Our collaboration with partners like Local Offer Network will make MasterCard the ‘go-to’ offers solution for merchants and issuers looking for a stronger connection with our cardholders.”

Through MasterCard Offers Services, merchants will be exposed to a broad consumer base through a simple, easy-to-navigate technology system. At the same time, issuers will have access to relevant and geo-targeted offers from hundreds of local and regional merchants. The result is a win-win for their shared customers.

“From day one, we’ve focused on providing consumers with great deals across the broadest range of products and services,” said Dan Hess, CEO and co-founder, Local Offer Network. "Our partnership with MasterCard reinforces the continued value of the deals segment to shoppers, merchants and the financial institutions that serve them.”

MasterCard and Local Offer Network are working with issuers to deliver specific offers programs by the end of this quarter.

For additional information, issuers and merchants should contact their MasterCard account manager. Deal originators wishing to participate should contact Local Offer Network at originators@localoffernetwork.com.
