In new research, Top 50 Financial Institutions' Debit Rewards and Loyalty: 2011 Annual Review, Mercator Advisory Group provides its annual examination of the changes taking place in the rewards and loyalty programs of the top debit card issuers in the United States. This is the first review of these programs since the implementation of the debit card interchange fee regulations that took effect on October 1, 2011. Though readers may expect to see a dramatic change from 2010, the research found that many of the issuers continued their programs, most notably Bank of America.

Many programs have migrated to merchant-funded discount networks (MFDN) strategies. Debit cardholders who value rewards programs will find them continuing to operate at many top financial institutions, which speaks to the resiliency of the product and its stakeholders in the face of significant changes in the business model.

Highlights of this report include:

- A discussion of the modifications, additions, and strategies of the top debit card issuers

- A matrix of MFDN solutions and the partners putting programs into the market

- Analysis of the primary market drivers affecting loyalty READ MORE >
