AUSTIN, Texas, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RetailMeNot.com (www.retailmenot.com), the most widely used digital coupon website in the United States, today announced another mobile milestone as it upgraded its free Android coupons app to include location-based offers for thousands of retail locations at hundreds of general shopping malls across the United States.
RetailMeNot launched its free coupons app for iPhone and Android phone users in mid-2012. During the 2012 holiday season, RetailMeNot enabled users of its iPhone app to receive notifications of available digital coupons when they visited nearly 500 U.S.-based general shopping malls.
Now Android phone users with the free RetailMeNot coupons app will benefit from the same location-based technology so they can be notified of savings opportunities when visiting geo-fenced malls across the United States.
"With more than 4 million downloads, more and more consumers are using the RetailMeNot coupons app on both iPhone and Android phones to discover great deals when shopping," said Cotter Cunningham, CEO & Founder, RetailMeNot, Inc. "As mobile traffic continues to be a meaningful and growing channel for our business, we look forward to working with our retail partners to help them drive more sales online and in-store."
How does a location-based offer work?
- Consumers download the free RetailMeNot coupons app on their Android phone within the Google Play store or upgrade their existing app.
- Consumers can:
- Either receive a notification promoting available in-store coupons for nearby stores when crossing a GPS-aware boundary line around a general shopping mall, e.g., driving into the mall parking lot during a weekend shopping trip.
- Or consumers planning a shopping trip can find in-store coupons for stores in nearby shopping malls. Shoppers can also submit requests for their favorite stores to offer coupons and deals if none are available.
- Consumers can show a cashier their phone at the register to redeem coupons or offers from retailers.
In addition to in-store coupons, users of the RetailMeNot Android coupon app can also access hundreds of thousands of coupons from tens of thousands of online retailers. Standard features include:
- Simple, easy-to-use interface with curated and frequently updated "Hot Deals"—our latest offers from thousands of retailers.
- Ability to save coupons for later use.
- Instant tap-and-paste functionality enables consumers to quickly use coupon codes within the checkout process at most online stores, an advancement over standard Android "select, copy and paste" functionality.
- Coupons are also curated and searchable within retail categories (e.g., apparel, electronics, sports, etc.) and arranged via the most popular stores on RetailMeNot, making savings exploration and discovery simple.
- Predictive-store-search functionality enables consumers to find coupons for their favorite retailer in just a few taps.
"We're excited to provide a superior user experience for deal hunters using our updated and free RetailMeNot Android coupons app," said Jag Bath, Senior Vice President, Product, RetailMeNot, Inc. "The new location based offers technology will help a huge population of mobile users save money on products that they buy at hundreds of malls across the United States where they shop on a frequent basis. Shoppers will literally be alerted of deals at local stores when they walk in the door of their favorite mall!"
