FarmVille creator Zynga and Citi join forces for exclusive game rewards
-Purple Harvester (1,400 Points)
-Red Pinto Horse (1,000 Points)
-Mystery Animal Crate (1,000 Points)
-Pink Deer (1,500 Points)
-Lightning Stove (3,500 Points)

This partnership with Citi marks Zynga's second collaboration with a credit company--the first being with American Express and its Membership Rewards Program. (This is also why some of those items might look familiar.) If this strategy catches on, expect other social game developers to hop onto Zynga's tailwind. Terry ONeil, Executive VP of North American Cards at Citi says that Zynga ThankYou Rewards keep Citi's ThankYou Point offerings relevant and meets a demand for social game rewards. I'd say hundreds of millions of players is relevant enough, wouldn't you?
If you're a Citi member, would you use ThankYou Rewards to buy goods in Zynga games? If not, is this something that would motivate you to join either Citi or American Express? Speak up in the comments. Add Comment.
