LAKE MARY, Fla., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone loves to save money, but it takes a lot of time and effort to search for available discounts and coupons before making online purchases. Piggy, a new coupon and cashback rewards service, changes that with patent-pending browser extensions that make savings automatic and simple. A free, 5-star rated browser add-on that works on Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox, Piggy scours the internet for the best deals and coupons for more than 2,000 major retailers, automatically adds discounts to the user's cart at checkout and gives customers cashback rewards on their purchases.
Founded in 2014 by John Anderson and Nick Corrieri with the support of lead investor Sherrin Capital, Piggy's seamless integration into the user shopping experience and cashback deals with popular stores quickly attracted an enthusiastic fan base that spread the word. The company has experienced 400 percent growth since June 2016, with more than 240,000 users completing nearly 5 million shopping trips and counting so far. The simplicity of the service is the key to Piggy's rapid growth.
"We're 100 percent focused on improving the shopping experience for Piggy users and retail partners," said Anderson, Piggy's CEO. "There are other coupon services out there, but our cutting-edge technology, our passion for empowering consumers, our commitment to sustainability and our transparency make us the best choice for shoppers and retailers who want save and make money while being responsible stewards of the environment. That's why we've grown so quickly. It's basically free money to users."
Among the features that set Piggy apart is the company's cashback rewards program. In contrast to competitor programs, Piggy's cashback rewards apply when users make purchases at virtually any participating retailer, including Walmart, Target, Kohl's, Macy's, Groupon, and Priceline. Piggy tells users upfront what cashback percentage they're earning on purchases, a level of transparency unavailable at some coupon services. Also, Piggy pays cashback rewards quarterly by sending customers a check, whereas other services make payments via gift cards or points, which restrict user choices.
The percentage of each purchase Piggy customers receive as cashback rewards varies by store, but the average is 4 percent to 5 percent, and customers know what they'll receive as a cashback reward before making a purchase. Piggy's approach to sustainability is also unique — the company's social responsibility program supports renewable energy and conservation projects to offset 100 percent of its electric and water usage while achieving a net-zero carbon footprint.
