Country music sensation Katie Armiger makes history today with the national launch of the first country music payments application for the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. The innovative offering lets consumers earn songs with every purchase. Katie Armiger, who is currently out on her national “Get Smart Tour” sponsored by Great American Country, has become one of the biggest and brightest independent female country artists. Her latest single “Better In A Black Dress,” from her forthcoming fourth studio album on Cold River Records, is climbing the Billboard Country Singles chart and has become the fastest growing single of her career.
When the Katie Armiger experience™ application is selected, a consumer will earn Katie Armiger songs for every $85 they spend anywhere they shop using the Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. When all of Katie Armiger’s songs are earned, the consumer will receive a physical, signed copy of her brand new album free of charge. Additionally, consumers will get access to Katie Armiger’s forthcoming fourth studio album a week early. When a song is earned, a link to download the song is delivered instantly to a consumer’s phone. Consumers can sign up for a battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device at www.dynamicsinc.com/katiearmiger.
“I am so excited for the opportunity to offer fans this unique experience they cannot get anywhere else,” said Katie Armiger. “I am honored that they have asked me to be a part of launching the The Dynamics ePlate™ device, which has created a one-of-a-kind way for fans to connect with my music.”
“We are thrilled to be able to team up with Katie to deliver her music to ePlate™ users through their everyday purchases,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. “Katie’s desire to sing exclusive ePlate™ songs and autograph CDs for all qualifying ePlate™ users shows that Katie is a true pioneer in both music and technology.”
The ePlate™ credit card device is subject to a credit approval.
How It Works
ePlate™ is connected to an ecosystem of experience™ providers that each deliver an individualized brand experience, through an experience™ application, to the consumer. Prior to a purchase, consumers select multiple experience™ applications on their smart phone, tablet, or computer to port to their ePlate™ device. At the time of purchase, the consumer can use different buttons on their ePlate™ device to select different experience™ applications.
