At CES this year, Dynamics ePlate Visa® Card is celebrating the milestone of adding its 50th rewards partner by having attendees experience and win some of its most unique rewards. CES show attendees can sign up for a unique card design only available during the show floor, and can earn double rewards for a year on most of its rewards, without paying a $99 reward upgrade fee.

Reaching a key milestone this year, the Dynamics ePlate now has over 50 reward partners, including the most popular rewards for air travel and cash back. With its Air Dollars reward, cardholders can earn $250 vouchers on 10 major US airlines, by earning 1.35 air dollars for every dollar they spend. That’s 35% more than typical airline rewards, and vouchers are good on any tickets purchased directly from the airline, without restrictions or blackouts.
CashPerks+ is the card’s cash back program, which has no special earning categories and no limits on what you can earn, plus a unique feature where cardholders can win up to $950 every time $50 in cash back is redeemed2.
The card also has a reward with a unique Win $10,000 sweepstakes2, where cardholders can earn a chance to win $10,000 for every $10 they spend.
The Dynamics ePlate Visa card has some very unique reward categories and high value rewards that are even greater than 100% - previously unheard of for a rewards card. For example, card holders can earn a seat on a private jet flight offered by JetLimo, that is worth as much as $1500, after spending only $1250, or can earn a $4000 discount off a Henry Cookson African Safari after spending only $2000!
Because the technology in the ePlate card allows users to select their rewards before making a transaction, they can earn rewards much faster than on other rewards cards. For example, with the Innovation and Technology Today Magazine reward, cardholders can earn an Apple iPad mini after spending $20,000. Another leading rewards program would require you to earn 50,000 points before you get that reward.
And there are rewards that are totally exclusive to Dynamics ePlate Cardholders, such as earning Upper Deck Infinite Trading Cards Packs for basketball, football, or golf, that come with randomly inserted autographed cards. Or cardholders can choose to earn exclusive signed and numbered art work from over 7 unique artists.
Look for the huge credit card that lights up (booth 31669). You will be able to play the new limited edition of Jersey Jack Pinball’s Wizard of Oz Pinball machine, where high scores will earn you a signed collector’s edition trans-light, or $300 discounts on the purchase of the machine. Visitors can see the scale model of the new Triton Submarine, probably the most extreme consumer electronic at this show, and learn how they can win an undersea journey, or they can play a golf simulator to win an exclusive signed Michael Heslop print of Tiger Woods.
“One of our proudest achievements was to win the CES Best of Innovations for Personal Electronics for the technology behind ePlate,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics Inc. “Now we want to celebrate reaching 50 rewards partners, by giving CES attendees an exclusive electronic ePlate card with double rewards.”
Visitors who apply for the card at CES and are approved will earn up to double rewards for 1 year, which typically costs $99 per year, just by applying at the Dynamics booth1.
This will be time well spent, with some excitement to boot!!
1Credit approval required.
2For either of these rewards, signing up for an ePlate card or making a purchase is not required to participate or win. Consumers can participate without signing up or making a purchase using a mail in entry described in the rules.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...
