One or Many is a unique promotion that helps consumers save significant dollars and brands sell more products. Shoppers can save $5 or more on brands they love over multiple shopping trips, while brands can motivate shoppers to stock up on their products.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
SavingStar, the first and only national, fully digital, grocery savings service, announced today a major update to both its Android and iPhone mobile apps. Shoppers can now access SavingStar’s unique “One or Many” deals on their phone, including high value grocery savings such as $10 cash-back on Weight Watchers Smart Ones, and $5 on Ore-Ida Frozen Potatoes. Previously, One or Many deals were only available on SavingStar’s website. One or Many leverages SavingStar’s industry leading digital network of 25,000 supermarkets and drugstores, enabling shoppers to save when purchasing specific products over one or many shopping trips at one or many participating retailers.
How SavingStar One or Many Deals Work
Shoppers can join SavingStar for free on SavingStar.com or on SavingStar’s Android or iPhone mobile app. Users register their supermarket and drugstore loyalty cards from participating stores in their area and select the grocery deals that interest them. In addition to standard eCoupon rewards on products like Cheerios, Yoplait, and Pillsbury Cookie Dough, shoppers can now access SavingStar’s exclusive One or Many deals to save $10 when they spend $40 on Weight Watchers Smart Ones, $5 when they spend $20 on Ore-Ida Frozen Potatoes, and $5 when they spend $14 on DOLE Frozen Fruit over one or many shopping trips. Shoppers use their loyalty card when buying the products and SavingStar sends them an email when the purchase has been recorded in the service. Once the required purchase threshold is reached, SavingStar deposits the cash into users’ SavingStar accounts, which can be cashed out into their bank or PayPal account, as an Amazon gift card, or as a donation to American Forests to help plant trees. Since the deals are fully digital, there’s nothing to clip or print, and users can save without the hassle of manually entering purchase data into a brand’s website as required by most traditional loyalty programs.
“One or Many is a unique promotion that helps consumers save significant dollars and brands sell more products. Shoppers can save $5 or more on brands they love over multiple shopping trips, while brands can motivate shoppers to stock up on their products,” said David Rochon, CEO of SavingStar.
Other Mobile App Updates
In addition to One or Many, the mobile app now allows users to sign up or login with their Facebook account, and scan their loyalty card for supported retailers rather than typing in the number.
Member Growth, Website Refresh, and Facebook Open Graph Integration
Launched in April 2011, SavingStar has since grown to over 3 million users. The service recently refreshed the look and feel of its website and put all One or Many deals and eCoupons on its homepage, making it easy for consumers to select any offer while scrolling down the page. SavingStar has also integrated with Facebook Open Graph, enabling users to share their SavingStar actions with Facebook friends automatically. For example, users can share when they select and redeem eCoupons, make progress towards reaching a goal in a One or Many deal, or get a payout their SavingStar account.
“SavingStar continues to offer shoppers the easiest way to save on groceries. Whether users select deals on the go through our mobile apps, or activate them on our website, SavingStar provides a no-hassle way to get substantial savings on grocery purchases,” said Rochon.
