New York, New York (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
To kick off summer in the Big Apple, CouProm, the subscription-based MasterCard/Visa Prepaid Debit Card and mobile app that has attracted 250,000+ U.S. merchants and amassed tens of thousands of paperless discounts and benefits available to its subscribers via its CouProm Network, has introduced a new discovery and savings tool for tourists visiting New York City. Placing its brochures at more than 250 CTM Media location points throughout the city, including many hotels, attractions, all airports and visitor centers, CouProm is giving tourists easy access to the CouProm Network, with savings on everything imaginable, from restaurants and nightclubs to shopping and entertainment – at stores and online. Through its partnerships with CTM Media and NYC & Company, 53 million annual visitors to NYC will have access to CouProm’s Mobile Application and Debit Card.
Every year, New York City is visited by more than 53 million tourists (New York City Tourism: A Model for Success. NYC & Company, June 2013.). "We wanted to give tourists visiting NYC an easy way to stretch their dollars and get what they want, when they want it, where they want it," said Director of Strategic Alliances Elise Colomer. Tourists arriving in New York or any U.S. city can download the CouProm mobile app for free and save money on almost everything to do wherever they are, from dining out at trendy restaurants to shopping at name-brand stores or local merchants, renting a car to visiting an attraction, taking a guided city tour on a boat or bus to getting in at a cool nightclub as a VIP, seeing theater shows and movies to making purchases at pharmacies and grocers. Users can search by category, location, product and service.
By using the CouProm App on their smart phone, a member can find and visit an affiliated local merchant, provide their paperless CouProm, pay with the CouPromCard and…voilà; the user reaps the reward of a discounted price! No more coupons to cut! No more paper to waste! Cardholders can also shop online to receive up to 15% cash back and points on purchases made through the CouProm network.
Access to the CouProm network’s discounts & benefits is free and valid for 30 days. CouProm provides 24/7 concierge support. An upgraded version, which costs $39.99, includes a Visa/MasterCard Prepaid Debit Card (CouPromCard), a $75 restaurant voucher for use at any of our 20,000 affiliated restaurants, and a guided audio tour of the city in English and other languages. U.S. domestic travelers returning home can continue their upgraded subscriptions to the Network for $9.99 a month, receiving access to the discounts and benefits, a monthly $25 restaurant voucher, and cash back and points on their CouPromCard for purchases.
"This is an important milestone in our journey not only to become the leading discounts and benefits hub for tourists visiting any city in the U.S. – where tourists can come to CouProm and easily discover great products and services with unbeatable savings – but also in our quest to provide the travel industry with innovative mobile and financial technology solutions," said CouProm Founder & CEO Yoana Petit.
