"We look to 2013 as having the potential to be a turning point in the offers market as consumers will be looking for better ways to strategically leverage the multitude of offers thrown at them on any given day. This presents the potential for financial institutions to step in as loyalty aggregators, not just offer providers, creating services around individual rewards program management,"
