How smaller institutions can grab credit card business back from megabanks

first_img continue reading » When it comes to credit card marketing, regional banks and credit unions are mostly missing the mark when it comes to attracting existing customers and prospects to their products. Now is a good time for banks and credit unions to reexamine their credit card marketing strategy because historical data tells us people re-evaluate their credit cards during difficult economic times.In 2011, for example, the Federal Reserve released a post-recession credit participation study showing that 68% of consumers with credit scores below 660 had an average of 3.3 credit inquiries in 2010, and around 30% of those in the top credit bracket (780+) were also evaluating their credit, with slightly under two credit inquiries taking place in the same time frame.These credit inquiries show that people were increasingly looking for credit solutions during the peak recession years. And, according to Federal Reserve data from 2007-2009, as mass employment, reduced wages and other financial pressures forced many Americans to purchase everyday necessities with credit cards, consumer use of credit spiked nearly 20%. These examples demonstrate that people are likely looking at maximizing rewards, taking advantage of cash back and reducing risks with interest-free financing and other benefits from credit cards today as we experience another economic downturn. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

It was actually impetigo, a skin infection. By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Ten things to know about Sumner County winter sports for Feb. 3, 2015…1. Basketball teams back in action.They are calling it the Div. III vs. Div. IV battle of the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League this week. Does that make sense? Well, the AV-CTL is divided into four six team divisions. The third biggest schools are playing the fourth biggest (or smallest) league schools.Over the next three games, Wellington has three DIII opponents: at Buhler tonight, hosting Augusta Friday and traveling to Winfield next Tuesday.The Crusaders will then return for the second half of the AV-CTL DIV schedule to round out the regular season.  Hard to believe, the Crusaders have played 12 of their 20 regular season games. All roads end up in Winfield for the post season sub-state on March 3-4 featuring a four-team tournament including the Dukes, Vikes, Rose Hill and Mulvane. Ark City, VC participating Sedan , home Seventh grade boys –Mulvane 41 Wellington A 31Zander Vargas 11, Gage Cunningham 7, Silas Popplewell 6, Cade Fairbanks 5, John Long 4, Malachi Macias 4, Isaac Hilt 2. 2. Battle of the Crusaders.Wellington girls and boys are heading north to play Buhler tonight. These two teams used to be old Chisholm Trail League rivals – playing twice a year in the 1980s and 1990s. Now they play on occasion when their non-league schedules mesh.The Wellington girls, who reached .500 for the first time this season, after placing fifth in the Haven Tournament will be rewarded with Buhler, who is 11-2, ranked fifth in the latest KBCA poll, and a third place finisher in the same Haven Tournament.On the boys side, Wellington boys at 7-5, will be hitting the hardwood for the first time in 10 days after placing second in the Chaparral Roadrunner Classic. Buhler is 9-4 after beating Mulvane 70-49 last Friday.“It’s a great atmosphere up there,” said Brian Buchanan, Wellington head boys basketball coach. “We better be ready to play because they will make you play – not just the players but the fans.” Augusta, home 3. Post script from Haven Tournament. WHS basketball players Avery Rusk and Lauryn Snipes were named to the Haven Tournament’s All-Tourney team. Rusk is a freshman and Snipes is a sophomore. Both girls were in double figures all three nights. Rusk had 12 against Kingman, 17 against Rose Hill and 23 points against Cheney. Snipes had 14, 16, and 19 in the same three games.

Two Sumner County teams go after it. Caldwell boys will be battling Oxford in the Wildcat Den in what could be a dandy of a Sumner County basketball game tonight.This will feature a game between Caldwell which is 4-0 and Oxford which is 3-0 in league coming into this game.Oxford beat Central 56-47 on Friday night to improve its record to 7-6 while Caldwell won a huge contest against West Elk 56-50.“We need to shoot the ball at a higher percentage, but we are starting to execute our half court stuff well,” said Kyle Green, Oxford head boys basketball coach said.Colter Silvan had his best game of the season for Oxford on Friday getting 16 points.

The coaches need to enforce better hygiene practice. Several wrestlers wearing the same practice clothes day after day unwashed! Other wrestling programs require students to shower at the school directly following practice with an anti fungal and antibacterial soap such as Defense Soap! Report Reply 1 reply · active 288 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 288 weeks ago Good thing that’s not contagious….oh wait…. Impetigo is a bacteria, not fungus. It is spreadable by contact, or contact with something another infected person has touched. Glad the school is being honest about the well being of all of our children. Another one of those “reports of someone in the area taking pictures” moments. Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down CueballSumnernewscow 94p · 288 weeks ago I made the correction.

The Crusaders were supposed to go to the Andover Tournament last weekend but Wellington wrestling head coach Mitch McComb said the team had been inflicted with a impetigo, a skin infection, and canceled the trip instead of affecting other teams. Obviously, Mulvane wasn’t at the tournament. (Editor apologizes for last sentence and Mulvane was at Andover.)Wellington will be traveling to the Rose Hill tournament this Saturday.The Crusaders next dual will be home Feb. 12 against Circle which will be Senior Night. Wellington has just one home competitive match after Christmas break.As far as Andrew Pelkey’s status, he may finally see the wrestling mat this Saturday at Rose Hill. Aaron Fair, ruled out earlier, may have a possibility of wrestling in the regional in Pratt. But it will depend on what the doctors will rule as the time approaches, McComb said. 6.

If that happens, there will be a five-week campaign up to polling day.The UK prime minister has said the public must be “given a choice” over the future of Brexit and the country.Mr Johnson hopes the election will give him a fresh mandate for his Brexit deal and break the current parliamentary deadlock, which has led to the UK’s exit being further delayed to 31 January.British MPs vote to hold general election on 12 December was last modified: October 29th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Music Companies Won’t Play Ball With Apple – Gee, I Wonder Why?

first_imgApple wants to roll out a streaming music service like Pandora, reports The New York Times, but can’t get it done because the music companies are dragging their heels.Funny old world, isn’t it? Apple used iTunes to basically take over the music business, setting prices and dictating terms. And Apple ran roughshod over those record companies, which are still smarting from the rough treatment.Now they’re getting their revenge. The longer they drag things out, the more Apple suffers as new rivals grow stronger. The suits in Los Angeles must be loving this.According to the Times: “Apple had once hoped to introduce the radio service around the Grammy Awards in February. But it has been delayed, chiefly by slow progress in licensing negotiations with record companies and with one key publisher, Sony/ATV, which also controls the EMI publishing catalog.”Another issue, according to the New York Post, is that Apple is low-balling the deal, trying to get streaming rights at a rate well below what others pay. Apple is offering 6 cents for every 100 songs streamed. Others pay 12-to-35 cents per 100 songs streamed.Adding to the resentment, I’m sure, is that Apple is sitting on $140 billion in cash, some billions of which were gained by screwing record companies the last time around.Once Bitten…So unpleasant was Apple as a partner that the media business even invented a verb for what Apple did to the music companies – they call it “getting iTuned,” and they’ve vowed not to let it happen to them again.I suspect the same thing is what’s holding up Apple’s push into TV, as movie and TV guys saw what Apple did to the music business and would like very much to avoid that happening to them, thank you very much.Last fall I had an interesting conversation with an influential player in the TV and movie production business, who explained the fear and loathing with which Apple is viewed in Hollywood.Part of the problem, he told me, is that the video guys all saw what happened to the music guys after they got in bed with Apple. But also, “Steve Jobs came down here and did meetings in Hollywood, talking to people who’ve been in this business for 25 years, and he told these guys, `You’re all a bunch of idiots. You’re dinosaurs.’ The response from the Hollywood guys was, `Go [email protected] yourself.’” As far as Hollywood is concerned, “Apple is scary. Steve Jobs was scary. There’s a fear of empowering Apple. No one here has a vested interest in helping to build that up. It’s a scary time, and do you really want an 800-pound gorilla controlling your pricing?”An Analog ModelThe larger problem with iTunes is that it’s really, essentially, an analog business model. Apple didn’t really do anything revolutionary. It just “paved the cowpath,” meaning it took the same business model that people had used in the analog world and created a digital knock-off. Just like you used to buy vinyl records, and then CDs, now you went online and bought an album or a song, and now you “owned” them and added them to your “collection” which you had to manage on a computer. You can argue that Apple did something a little bit revolutionary by letting customers buy a single song rather than an entire album. Fair enough.But iTunes is still a model in which you buy music. The whole thing is about replicating the experience that Steve Jobs had as a kid buying vinyl records, even down to getting the album art. As many others have pointed out, once you start using Spotify (in my case) or any of the other new music-streaming services, you don’t really want to go back to iTunes. And you don’t need to.Apple has a problem. It bullied those content guys in Los Angeles, and now those guys are getting their revenge.Image courtesy of Reuters. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout dan lyons Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Tags:#Apple#iTunes#Pandora#spotify#streaming music last_img
