EcoRebates, a leading provider of web and mobile local incentive search tools for retailers and brands, announced today the availability of EcoRebate’s local incentive search tools on Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) mobile shopping platforms.

In today’s environment, consumers are turning to their mobile devices to research products to buy, find deals and access location-specific services. Approximately 40% of the nearly 250 million mobile phones in the US are ‘smartphones’ with that share growing rapidly which are now used by consumers to research products while at home, in stores or on the go (Source: Nielsen). Shoppers using Best Buy mobile app and mobile web pages now have instant access to thousands of location-specific rebates and incentives on energy-efficient products while they are browsing those products on their mobile devices.
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with EcoRebates, and offer these location-based savings opportunities as our customers rely on more places, like mobile, to seek energy-efficient products,” said Kris Bowring, senior director, New Business Customer Solutions Group, Best Buy.
