“We continue to deepen our commitment in the space with the new MyLinkables mobile app, mobile API and social API,” said Tom Burgess, CEO of Linkable Networks. “The growing consumer desire for ‘on-demand’ mobile access to any online properties, the proliferation of couponing and the mass appeal of sharing with friends told us it was time to bring even more convenience to shoppers with a MyLinkables app. With smartphone shopping on the rise, our new developer tools will allow mobile app developers to link enable any deal or ad, further proliferating card linked offers in the mobile world.”
Linkables (watch video), introduced publicly in November 2011, allow advertisers to link-enable any advertisement in any online or traditional media. This gives consumers a quick and seamless savings experience by linking retail discounts they see in banner, text, video, mobile, TV and print ads directly to their credit or debit card of choice. Once the offer is redeemed, the savings is automatically posted back to that card. These link-enabled ads give consumers savings with top brands and retailers throughout the country, anything from anything from restaurants and specialty retail to convenience and grocery stores. Consumers can currently see link-enabled ads across a variety of media properties while browsing online.
