Arnaud Collin, VP of Marketing & Product Management Offermatic is pioneering a new marketing model that changes how consumers save money, and how merchants acquire customers in a highly targeted, personal way. Consumers connect any credit or debit card to Offermatic’s free online service to receive highly targeted offers based on their actual spending history. Customers then shop as they normally would, in any store offline or online. Since the offers and savings are loaded directly to their card, there are no coupons or vouchers to deal with. Merchants can personalize offers based on individual behavior and spending habits. // @offermatic
