Swagbucks Partners With First Bankcard for New Visa Secured Card Program With Rewards

Swagbucks Members May Now Enjoy a Credit Card or Secured-Credit Card That Earns Rewards Points for Everyday Visa Purchases

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Swagbucks (www.swagbucks.com), the web's most rewarding deals and content discovery community, has partnered with First Bankcard -- a division of First National Bank of Omaha and a leading national credit card issuer in the partnership arena -- to offer its members rewards opportunities through its credit card and secured credit card programs.

Swagbucks -- launched in 2008 -- is the web's leading rewards discovery community awarding its members through its rewards program for everyday digital activities including web search, online shopping, digital entertainment, playing games, taking surveys and discovering special promotions. More than 11 million members have claimed over $65 million in retail gift card awards since the site's debut, and First Bankcard's credit card and new secured credit card offerings now bring the opportunity through its credit card rewards programs to earn points anywhere shoppers like to spend.

The new Swagbucks Secured Visa Card -- which joins the Swagbucks Credit Card program launched in partnership with First Bankcard in 2013 -- helps consumers to actively build or re-establish their credit with all three major credit bureaus while enjoying opportunities to earn rewards points. An up-front security deposit agreed to by First Bankcard sets the card's credit limit, and in as little as 11 months card members can earn the opportunity to move to a deposit-free card.

"The Swagbucks Secured Visa Card provides an invaluable credit-building opportunity to our members who already enjoy rewards for most everything they already do online," said Swagbucks Senior Vice President Stacey Oliff. "Starting with a secured deposit, the card helps to build positive credit while offering the opportunity to earn points for any purchase."

Swagbucks Secured Visa Card members earn .50 points for every $1 spent in qualifying transactions, with an additional 500 bonus points awarded after their first $500 spent and another 1,000 bonus points after a total of $1,000 or more is spent.

"This new program will help our partners grow their business and taps our flagship secured credit card offering to give consumers true credit-building power," said Steve Eulie, President of First Bankcard. "In addition, rewards points create possibilities for secured credit cardholders to extend the power of their budget when making everyday purchases with their credit card."

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
