I wonder if the tense of "are winning" is "present continuous" or "future".

The credit card companies have figured out how to move your due dates around, shrink your payment time from
30 days to as little as 21 days, and generally keep you confused enough to ensure that you’ll be late paying — as
a result of which they can “get you.” It’s a great business — and the credit card companies are winning.

It's clearly present continuous, as the credit card companies are both already undertaking this practice and making money out of it ("winning").
