By integrating with Troop ID, we can provide service members and their families with great military discounts quickly and conveniently, without having to check their email for special coupon codes.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Troop ID, a digital authentication API for members of the military community has enabled Man Crates to offer an ongoing military discount safely and securely without fear of fraud. Man Crates knows the military community is rife with manly men who say "no" to ugly neckties, scented candles, and executive trinkets. Different from other packages, Man Crates don't come with wrapping paper or fancy ribbons—instead, these crates are chock-full of great snacks, cool gear, and need to be busted open with the laser-etched crowbar that accompanies each shipment.
By instantaneously verifying a customer’s eligibility against an authoritative database and relaying a trusted response to the retailer, Troop ID helps businesses show their appreciation right at checkout. Blake Hall, Founder and CEO of Troop ID, observed: “Many retailers wish to recognize the military service of their customers but legitimate concerns about fraud combined with the high cost associated with verifying identity prevented this desire from being fulfilled. Troop ID allows brands to honor and recognize military service in an easy to use and secure way.”
Perfect for deployed troops, Man Crates has shipped its bountiful loads of goodies to Armed Service members in Afghanistan, on the USS Enterprise, and other remote locations across the globe. Every crate is packed with love so that each potato chip, pretzel, customized bar glass, or bottle of BBQ sauce journeys across the land and sea fully intact. Jon Beekman, Founder and CEO says, "Since we started Man Crates, we've been committed to delivering awesome gifts to the military community. By integrating with Troop ID, we can provide service members and their families with great military discounts quickly and conveniently, without having to check their email for special coupon codes. Setting up the Troop ID button was really fast and gave us a way to say thank you to our military customers for their service to our country."
The White House recently commended Troop ID and those brands that partner with Troop ID to offer military discount programs. Over 120,000 current and former service members have registered for Troop ID accounts and the site currently signs up over 1,000 new members per day. Now, these members can save 10% and make someone’s day with a gift that's tough to open and impossible to forget.
