London, UK (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2011
A new iPhone app has launched today which rewards users with cash and exclusive money saving offers just for checking in to certain high street stores and restaurants.
The UK’s first check in for cash tool, the Quidco iPhone app, provides the user with all of the money saving offers available nearby including vouchers, bar code vouchers and in store cashback deals.
It also presents cash incentives and bigger offers for users who enter certain restaurants and high street stores and check in.
Companies already signed up to offer exclusive deals and savings via the Quidco iPhone app include high street retailers such as Debenhams, restaurants and cafés such as Yo Sushi and Esquires Coffee, as well as gyms and travel agents.
Typical cash offers available right now include:
- 25p reward for checking in at Barracuda bars on Friday 3 – Sunday 5 June
- 25p reward for checking in to Gap on Saturday 4 June and Sunday 5 June only
- 25p reward for checking in to Debenhams on Saturday 4 June and Sunday 5 June only
- 25p reward for checking in and reviewing offers at Carphone Warehouse stores
- 20p reward for checking in and reviewing offers at Halfords
- 15p reward for checking in and reviewing offers at Majestic Wine
- 10p reward for checking in and reviewing offers at New Look
- 10p reward for checking in and reviewing offers at Thorntons
There are also exclusive offer check ins at:
- New Look
- Majestic Wine
- Hotel Chocolat
- Crabtree & Evelyn
- Charles Tyrwhitt
- Old English Inns
- Crepe Affair
Instant discounts are available by showing the voucher code or bar code on the iPhone screen at the point of sale, and in store cashback is achieved by registering a debit or credit card on the app (or Quidco website) and using it to pay in store.
The check in function, which is currently available in over 12,000 locations in the UK, rewards users with cash or bigger offers than previously shown when selected while inside the store or restaurant. The cash is paid into the user’s Quidco account and can be withdrawn twice monthly.
Hannah Green from Quidco said, “If you’d like to spend a little less money at the pub or shops, the Quidco Mobile app is for you. Not only does it stop you having to print off and carry around countless store or restaurant vouchers, but it also rewards you with cash and big exclusive offers in return for checking in to certain locations.
“Quidco has long been known as a nice little earner for members. Shopping for clothes, groceries, insurance and mobile contracts via the site allows members to earn hundreds of pounds in cashback. Given our generosity, it made sense to launch an app which takes cashback even further – allowing you to earn money for free.”
The Quidco Mobile app is available to download for free from the App store from today.
Notes to editors:
Instead of going directly to a retailer’s website, visit a cashback site such as http://www.quidco.com and look for the retailer there. For each merchant, all of the cashback offers and voucher codes available are displayed and by selecting one, you are then taken to the retailer’s website to shop as normal.
Because the merchant sees that you have bought something after clicking through from a cashback site, it pays them a commission which they pass on to you as cashback. Users can also benefit from instant discounts using voucher codes and printable vouchers for use in stores.
Quidco.com is the easy way for people to save money on every purchase. It pays ‘cashback’ when people click through and make a purchase at any of the 3000 retailers listed on its website, by paying the commission it gets from the retailer, directly into the shopper’s bank account. It also lists voucher codes, which give an instant online discount, restaurant vouchers and printable vouchers, which give a discount in-store.
Quidco.com was founded in 2005 with a mission to help people save money and is the UK’s leading cashback and voucher website. The site is free to join and currently has more than one million members who will each save on average £450 in the next year.
