True, any service that uses geo-location will have to be opt-in. I like that this program addresses privacy concerns by also providing the option for users to enter a zip code for local offers. I think people will respond well to that.

re: America First Credit Union Rolls Out Location-Based Mobile Offers
We've been hearing about doing more with offers in banking for a long time -- and particularly around leveraging mobile and geolocation capabilities to do so -- so this initiative is an interesting step forward. This also seems to be an area where a lot of the FS-focused start-up tech firms are concentrating.

It will be interesting to see how successful this program is for the credit union in increasing card spend with its customers and deepening its relationships. I like that it's an opt-in service. Pretty much any geo-location service is going to have to be. But this has benefit to the customer, so I think there's a strong incentive for them to opt-in.
