LOS GATOS, Calif., Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wanderful Media™, the company behind Find&Save®, today announced it is helping to give a million dollars in cash back to its mobile shopping app users, as part of its aggressive push to drive shoppers into retail stores this holiday season. Find&Save helps shoppers find the latest sales and coupons at nearby stores, based on their current location.
The new Cash Dash feature in the Find&Save mobile phone app will enable shoppers to get up to $50 cash back after just one purchase in a store. Other shopping apps require consumers to make several shopping trips and wait for points to add up, and/or require users to buy specific items for cash back.
There will be multiple Find&Save Cash Dash promotions through the end of the year, potentially giving each Find&Save shopper the opportunity to get hundreds of dollars back. With more than a 1.3 million consumers who have used the Find&Save app, the company is helping retailers by driving a significant amount of foot traffic into stores.
How Find&Save Cash Dash works
Each Find&Save Cash Dash promotion starts with a mobile phone alert from the Find&Save app. For the current version of the app, about one out of three Find&Save users has received a Cash Dash alert on their phone.
Once the lucky shopper receives the Cash Dash alert, the fun begins. They have between 24 – 72 hours to go shopping at a major retailer, then take a photo of their receipt from the Find&Save app. They will then get paid within days. For example, a Find&Save Cash Dash alert can tell them if they spend at least $50 at a store (such as Target, Walgreens or Radio Shack, etc.) in the next three days, they will get $50 back. That $50 payment can then be transferred directly into their bank account.
There will be many chances for all app users to earn cash back, as there will be new Cash Dash alerts one to five times a week through the end of the year. For Black Friday weekend and beyond, Find&Save plans to send out Cash Dash alerts to nearly all Find&Save mobile phone app users.
"Shoppers have the opportunity to buy gifts for friends, then a few days later, turn around and buy gifts for themselves with the money they got back from the Find&Save app," said Ben Smith, CEO of Wanderful Media, owners of Find&Save. "Our Find&Save mobile app leverages the geo-location capability of smart phones to serve up the latest sales and coupons – and now gives a real cash incentive for consumers to go shopping at a major retail store within the next day or so."
