Atlanta, August 21, 2013 – Cardlytics, the leader in Card-Linked Marketing, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent for Cardlytics’ unique technology, covering their core systems – the Cardlytics Offer Placement System (OPS) and Offer Management System (OMS). U.S. Patent # 8,515,810 enables Cardlytics to create targeted marketing based on consumer purchase behavior, and place advertising through online banking portals.
