Card awards have become so much in demand in the US that issuers are making news by simply introducing a new reward card. In addition, as consumer concerns about the nature of the reward offerings now outweigh any other card characteristic, there has been a dramatic increase in competitive bidding for the most profitable and appealing reward offerings.
