If you have been waiting for a way to redeem coupons at ANY store with your phone, your wait may soon be over! Mobile manufacturer coupons (which you don’t have to print or clip) are coming!!!
This is really exciting news for couponers!! For years, most of us spend time going through the Sunday Insert and clipping the coupons we want. We also take the time to find the coupons online and print them out using sites, such as coupons.com. Those days may soon be a thing of the past!
Mobeam, announced that they have created a way to allow coupons to be redeemed via your phone! As we all know, only retail coupons have been available on your phone. Those are also limited to being used only at that store. This always excluded manufacturer’s coupons – which only had to be printed or found through other formats.
According to George Garrick, CEO of Mobem, “The paper coupon is one of the last archaic components of an industry that has digitally evolved in almost every other way. Mobile manufacturer coupons are secure and fraud resistant, and the antiquated process of shipping coupons out of the country to be manually counted and cleared can be replaced with fast, accurate, secure digital processing.”
Mobeam’s popular Beep’nGo app will soon be the first mobile app able to process manufacturer coupons at the retail checkout. The company is now working with multiple CPG brands, retailers and mobile device manufacturers to speed their ability to make use of the updated standards.
As they stated, this is not yet available, but it is awesome to see that the technology is there. It will be exciting to watch this roll out and allow coupons to always be at your finger tips when you shop!!
Will this make you change the way you coupon?
