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.
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!
