Affinity Solutions was founded more than 15 years ago based on innovating solutions that help Financial Institutions and retailers craft precision marketing programs that drive customer acquisition, share of wallet, and loyalty. Our Financial Institution, Merchant, Data and Technology partners play a valuable role in redefining highly personalized, data driven marketing.
Early on, we recognized that consumer spend data can dramatically improve marketing productivity. We set out to not only personalize the offers we deliver to cardholders and drive maximum engagement and loyalty, but help marketers maximize ROI across channels.
