You may have noticed when we announced Scout almost a month ago that not everyone could get in. We knew the idea of a personal deal-hunting assistant would be popular, but we didn’t know just how flooded we would get. As a result, we needed to implement a wait-list, and unlock access to Scout in increments. Since then, users have been saving 15% on average, using everything from price matching, mobile rebates, and in-store coupons to get the deals. Many more new cool savings tools are coming soon.
I’m very happy to say that we’ve managed to quickly scale up, and today we’re opening the doors to everyone! New and old SnipSnap users alike can simply download the latest version of the iOS app, fire up the Scout tab, and start saving a whole lot of moolah!
The early reviews and feedback for this service have been super gratifying. Thanks to Techcrunch, CBS, Fast Company, and NPR for helping spread the word!
Last night we had a lot to celebrate at SnipSnap HQ. We proudly hosted the Philadelphia tech community at the 2nd Startup Hangout. Mayor Michael Nutter paid us a surprise visit, and reminded us that he had indeed discovered us as a judge at Switch Philly two years ago, and was excited to cash in his options.
We also toasted: 4 million SnipSnap users on iOS and Android, 50 national retail partners, and a full quarter of profitability!
Thanks to all our startup compadres who turned out, and everyone in our extended SnipSnap family for believing in us. Here’s to 2015 being our biggest and best year yet!
