Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
Quickpons, Inc. is launching a new Internet based service for consumers that will allow them to send coupons to their cell phones as text messages. There is no charge to consumers and businesses can join the service for free during the beta period.
Businesses post special coupon offers on the website, such as “20% Off Your First Order”. Consumers arrive at the website seeking bargains. Once the consumer has located an offer that they wish to take advantage of, they simply click and send the offer as a text message to their cell phone. The merchants honor the text message on the cell phone as if it were a printed coupon.
The advantage to consumers is obvious, no more cutting out small paper coupons that often go forgotten and unredeemed. Quickpons, Inc. believes that this will be the new preferred method by which consumers will seek discounts. “I invented this service because I would usually forget to bring coupons with me, but I always have my cell phone”, says Glen Wheeler, President of Quickpons, Inc. “I also think many consumers will want to try it out just because it is so unique.”
Businesses benefit because studies show that consumers who use coupons spend more than those who don't. Also surprising is the fact that Americans in the upper income brackets are more likely to use coupons.
Text messaging is a growing trend among cell phone users. By merging the Internet, text messaging and consumers looking to save money, Quickpons, Inc. plans to bring those consumers together with businesses eager to oblige. The site is set to launch on June 16th with the Beta period ending that day. Businesses seeking further information should visit the website at http://www.quickpons.com.
