  • Patent number: 11012758
    Abstract: Digital cross-marketing into digital channels is triggered by a cue message in a linear and non-linear television programming stream. The cue message provides advance warning to a local service provider about an upcoming break in the programming stream and also provides information about the break. In addition to triggering insertion of a local ad into the programming stream in accord with the instructions in the cue message, the cue message also initiates action to run one or more ads in other digital media. For example, the cue message may trigger ads in mobile media, Internet-based media, the Internet of Things, and other media.

  • Publication number: 20210035145
    Abstract: A coupon clearinghouse server receives a request for a coupon offer from a client device. The server transmits only a first subset of coupon offer data for the coupon offer to the client device, and stores, in memory, a first code for a first merchant at which the coupon offer is redeemable. The code is not revealed to the client device. Subsequently, the server receives, from the client device, a second code that the client device has obtained at a point of sale system. The server determines if there is a match between the first code and the second code, and if so, transmits the second subset of coupon offer data including coupon offer redemption instructions to the client device. The client device presents the now complete coupon offer to the point of sale system to redeem the coupon offer.
