CMO Club Survey Shows Card-Linked Marketing Programs are Highly Effective, but Rarely Done

Card-linked marketing programs — like BankAmeriDeals®, an online and mobile cash back deals program for Bank of America® customers — are highly effective in increasing revenue, customer insights and advanced targeting to marketing programs, but are underutilized by chief marketing officers (CMOs), according to a new survey released today by Bank of America and The CMO Club.


The survey, which polled CMOs on their preferences and marketing program needs, found that card-linked marketing may be the industry’s best kept secret. Of the CMOs who had used card-linked marketing, nine out of 10 experienced revenue lift from a program, 98 percent deemed it an effective solution for reaching their target audience, and 96 percent are planning to use card-linked marketing in future campaigns.


While highly effective, these online and mobile cash back deals programs are not yet fully understood. According to the survey, while 78 percent of CMOs say they know what card-linked marketing is, more than half (62 percent) have never implemented a program. Of those who have never used it, 53 percent say they don’t know how it works and one in three (34 percent) admit that they are unsure of its effectiveness, which suggests that many marketers are missing a key opportunity to connect with and grow their customer base.


BankAmeriDeals reaches 29 million of Bank of America’s growing online and mobile banking customers, offering relevant deals to them based on past purchase behavior while creating a targeted marketing solution for merchants. The offers appear in online banking and mobile apps, allowing customers to choose the deals they want while managing their finances.  Cash back is in addition to other rewards and is put into customer accounts. Customers can find more information about the product and sign up at


“Program innovations have gone beyond streamlined redemption at the point-of-sale to not only address what CMOs value in a marketing program, but what they need to be successful in customer loyalty and engagement,” said Pete Krainik, founder of The CMO Club (, a membership organization that brings together more than 850 heads of marketing, and purveyor of the BankAmeriDeals/CMO Club Poll.

I'm a more effective CMO and leader thanks to the relationships and insights I have made from The CMO CLUB

Terri Funk Graham,Red Envelope

The CMO Club and dinners are great because there are no hidden agendas, other than to learn from each other and network, in an engaging, comfortable environment.

Kevin Garton,Context Asset Management

Some experiences like the CMO Summit are difficult to describe until you actually step into the moment. The October 2011 CMO Summit in Beverly Hills delivered on its promise of providing the best CMO conversations in the world. Thanks for including me in such a unique opportunity to re-energize my passion for Marketing
