One of the problems with most deal apps is that people never think to open them while they’re in stores. ShopSavvy users are different, however, as they generally use their app whenever they are comparison shopping. Through our new partnership with Spotzot, ShopSavvy can now serve these users highly targeted deals, delivered while they shop.
Here’s today’s press release:
ShopSavvy Partners with Spotzot to Give More Targeted, Timely Deals to Mobile Consumers
Smartphone users are delivered the deals, coupons and sales they want – when and where they want them.
ShopSavvy, the leading mobile shopping assistant, has joined forces with Spotzot, the primary source for mobile deals, to help merchants and brands connect with consumers by providing highly targeted deals.
By partnering with Spotzot, ShopSavvy will deliver the deals, coupons and sales information most relevant to its users, based on their location and demonstrated shopping interest. ShopSavvy users will receive the most relevant deals within 500 feet of their location.
“When consumers go shopping, most don’t think to open deal apps, which can be overwhelming and painful to navigate,” said Matt Weathers, vice president of product for ShopSavvy. “Also, people don’t just wake up in the morning and say ‘Let’s find some deals.’ They shop for items they actually need and want. Along the way, they seek the best prices and deals. Users already use the ShopSavvy app to get price and review information. Now, with Spotzot’s data, we can serve them deals that relate to exactly where they are standing and what they want at that moment.”
ShopSavvy’s partnership with Spotzot provides users with the most comprehensive catalog of in-store offers and coupons available at locations across the United States. Shoppers can spot deals before or while visiting more than 400,000 retail locations, including 1,000 major malls and outlets.
“ShopSavvy helps retail merchants and brands reach consumers while they shop in stores,” said Jim Schreitmueller, Spotzot co-founder and vice president of sales and marketing. “When consumers scan products on ShopSavvy, Spotzot’s deal search engine reveals discount offers and coupons valid in the store where the consumer is shopping, in nearby stores and available from retailers’ online stores, ensuring consumers get what they want at the best available price.”
Spotzot was selected from more than a dozen vendors because it offered ShopSavvy the most structured, accurate and comprehensive deal inventory available.
Spotzot is currently delivering deals to ShopSavvy’s Android smartphone users, with the service expected to be deployed on iPhone next month.
