You may have noticed when we announcedScout 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!
We have some exciting news to share. We’ve been working for months on a breakthrough way to save money on all in-store purchases. Yes, ALL of them. Our beta testers have been saving 15% on average, with many cracking 50%.
Get ready to meet Scout.
How does Scout work? You simply snap a photo of any product. Using groundbreaking image-recognition technology developed by Slyce, we can immediately identify that product, and then turn around and find you all the deals for it. Scout will quickly figure out if any product has a price-match opportunity, instant mobile rebate, card-linked offer, or gift card. If we don’t have a mobile coupon on SnipSnap, we’ll even scan all the other coupon apps and sites. At SnipSnap we used to promise you’ll “Never forget a coupon.” Now, with Scout, you’ll “Never miss a deal!”
Some background on how Scout was developed after the jump.
If you haven’t recently visited our home on the web (www.snipsnap.it), today would be a great day to check it out! On Friday we launched a major update to our website – and we think it’s beautiful.
Our company mission has always been to help users never forget a coupon. When redesigning the website, we wanted to visualize how each feature in SnipSnap supports that vision. We knew that photography would be a crucial component to our site plan, so we partnered with Philadelphia based photographer, Justin James Muir and, well, the results speak for themselves.
