SAN JOSE, Calif., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The votes are in and the winner is . . . Cellfire Inc., the leader in digital grocery coupons, today announced that consumers ranked its digital grocery coupons higher in a number of key shopping and convenience factors than coupons from newspapers, the mail or printable web coupons, according to a recent survey* of its save-to-card customers by Market Dynamics. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Cellfire customers surveyed revealed that having access to Cellfire coupons influenced their choice of where to shop for groceries. The recent survey also revealed that more frugal customers affiliated with the Republican Party (44 percent) are actively using Cellfire, as opposed to Democrats (27 percent).
"Cellfire users are the hard to reach consumers that brands and retailers want to engage with, and their decisions of where to shop and what to buy are often dictated by what coupons they receive," said Robert Drescher, CEO of Cellfire. "By distributing millions of coupons each month to thousands of grocery stores across the country, we are helping to save consumers money and drive business for our grocer and brand partners. Everyone wins with our all digital grocery coupons, even the environment."
The majority of survey respondents ranked Cellfire offers highest over coupons from newspapers, mail and printed web coupons in the areas of environmental friendliness (85 percent), ease-of-use (74 percent), convenience (73 percent) and time saved at checkout (72 percent). Other highlights from the survey include:
- Engaged Consumers – The majority of Cellfire customers (71 percent) regularly check for digital coupons before or during their grocery shopping trip
- Power Shoppers – Cellfire users have very high median household income of $75,000 and more than half (58 percent) have a four-year college degree or higher, compared to 2009 norms of $50,000 annual income and 49 percent college graduate.
- Chief Household Operators (CHOs) and Moms – The majority of Cellfire customers are CHOs: women (88 percent) and a parent (74 percent)
Survey respondents** from Cellfire's mobile users differ from web–based save-to-card users, as they are more male (32 percent vs. 12 percent), more ethnically diverse with a higher percentage of African Americans and Hispanics, have a higher income and are much less likely to use paper/printed coupons on the same trip.
