LARGO, Fla., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valpak Direct Marketing Systems, Inc., a leader in local print and digital coupons, will integrate its comprehensive offerings of local and national coupons into Google Wallet via the Wallet Objects API.
The Valpak.com "Save to Google" feature will be available for desktop and mobile web users later this week, providing the ability for almost anyone with a smart phone to access the capability and convenience of the Google Wallet. Valpak is one of the first local coupon companies to be incorporated into the Google Wallet.
Google Wallet is a free digital wallet that securely stores your credit cards, debit cards, offers, loyalty cards, and more. With Google Wallet, you can buy in-stores, buy online, and send money.
"Being a Google Wallet Objects integration partner demonstrates Valpak's undertaking to be at the forefront of technology," said Michael Vivio, President of Cox Target Media, provider of Valpak. "And at the same time it shows our promise to consumers to provide them savings at their fingertips wherever they go."
Valpak is the first direct marketing company to distribute local coupons across multiple mobile wallets. Its coupons were incorporated onto Windows Phone Wallet in February and onto iOS Passbook® last October.
To use Valpak coupons with Google Wallet, consumers merely need to visit Valpak.com on their desktop computer or via their smart phone or tablet browser. They then access "local coupons," click on the coupon they want, scroll down to the button that says, "Save offer to Google." The offer will be saved directly to their Google Account and they can easily redeem in store using the Google Wallet app at checkout.
In addition to helping consumers save money, the new Google Wallet integration also helps Valpak advertisers, providing yet another distribution platform and additional way to get their local business and promotional marketing message in front of consumers, thus increasing their audience and reach.
The Google Wallet app is currently available in the United States.
