At CES this year, Dynamics ePlate Visa® Card is celebrating the milestone of adding its 50th rewards partner by having attendees experience and win some of its most unique rewards. CES show attendees can sign up for a unique card design only available during the show floor, and can earn double rewards for a year on most of its rewards, without paying a $99 reward upgrade fee.

Reaching a key milestone this year, the Dynamics ePlate now has over 50 reward partners, including the most popular rewards for air travel and cash back. With its Air Dollars reward, cardholders can earn $250 vouchers on 10 major US airlines, by earning 1.35 air dollars for every dollar they spend. That’s 35% more than typical airline rewards, and vouchers are good on any tickets purchased directly from the airline, without restrictions or blackouts.
CashPerks+ is the card’s cash back program, which has no special earning categories and no limits on what you can earn, plus a unique feature where cardholders can win up to $950 every time $50 in cash back is redeemed2.
The card also has a reward with a unique Win $10,000 sweepstakes2, where cardholders can earn a chance to win $10,000 for every $10 they spend.
The Dynamics ePlate Visa card has some very unique reward categories and high value rewards that are even greater than 100% - previously unheard of for a rewards card. For example, card holders can earn a seat on a private jet flight offered by JetLimo, that is worth as much as $1500, after spending only $1250, or can earn a $4000 discount off a Henry Cookson African Safari after spending only $2000!
Because the technology in the ePlate card allows users to select their rewards before making a transaction, they can earn rewards much faster than on other rewards cards. For example, with the Innovation and Technology Today Magazine reward, cardholders can earn an Apple iPad mini after spending $20,000. Another leading rewards program would require you to earn 50,000 points before you get that reward.
And there are rewards that are totally exclusive to Dynamics ePlate Cardholders, such as earning Upper Deck Infinite Trading Cards Packs for basketball, football, or golf, that come with randomly inserted autographed cards. Or cardholders can choose to earn exclusive signed and numbered art work from over 7 unique artists.
Look for the huge credit card that lights up (booth 31669). You will be able to play the new limited edition of Jersey Jack Pinball’s Wizard of Oz Pinball machine, where high scores will earn you a signed collector’s edition trans-light, or $300 discounts on the purchase of the machine. Visitors can see the scale model of the new Triton Submarine, probably the most extreme consumer electronic at this show, and learn how they can win an undersea journey, or they can play a golf simulator to win an exclusive signed Michael Heslop print of Tiger Woods.
“One of our proudest achievements was to win the CES Best of Innovations for Personal Electronics for the technology behind ePlate,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics Inc. “Now we want to celebrate reaching 50 rewards partners, by giving CES attendees an exclusive electronic ePlate card with double rewards.”
Visitors who apply for the card at CES and are approved will earn up to double rewards for 1 year, which typically costs $99 per year, just by applying at the Dynamics booth1.
This will be time well spent, with some excitement to boot!!
1Credit approval required.
2For either of these rewards, signing up for an ePlate card or making a purchase is not required to participate or win. Consumers can participate without signing up or making a purchase using a mail in entry described in the rules. See official rules at www.dynamicsinc.com/rules/umbcashperksplus and www.dynamicsinc.com/rules/Win10000 for details.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
