Co-Branded and Affinity Cards in the U.S., 5th Edition

Co-branded credit cards generated $809 billion in U.S. purchase value in 2014. Visa leads network operators with a 47% share, followed by MasterCard and American Express. Competition is intense, as a growing bevy of players chase a finite universe of affluent prospects with more rewards and broader, deeper card benefits. Even so, co-branded cards can be further leveraged to draw more Millennials into the mix, and (at a time when the concept of brand loyalty is on the ropes) well-positioned issuers can leverage merchants’ need for sophisticated loyalty marketing strategies.

Co-Branded and Affinity Cards in the U.S., 5th Edition provides a wealth of insight on trends shaping this increasingly competitive industry, helping market participants plan their co-branded relationships and strategies.
