GeoQpons Tops 1 Million Active Mobile Shoppers(August 25, 2011)
SAN RAFAEL, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/25/11 -- Less than 10 months in the market, GeoQpons (www.geoqpons.com) today announced that it now has over 1 million active subscribers. GeoQpons is the hottest mobile shopping app for smart phones, helping shoppers find the latest deals from national retailers, restaurants, and local businesses. The recently achieved milestone is validation of GeoQpons' appeal to both shoppers and businesses alike. Shoppers save money while gaining access to the best and most relevant deals, and businesses can join the mobile shopping revolution at a very low cost. The aggregate consumer savings opportunity is huge: GeoQpons is now averaging over 100,000 discounts from local businesses nationwide.
Supporting Quote from GeoQpons Founder Sunit Lohtia:
"Our focus is helping shoppers save money and helping businesses take advantage of the mobile marketing wave. Clearly, it is quite an achievement to have over one million active shoppers saving money with GeoQpons in less than a year. As we exit 'back to school' season and head into the holiday shopping season, we know that more shoppers will be pulling out their smartphones to find the best deals. With more than 350 big name brands and more than 60,000 local businesses, GeoQpons should be a shopper's first choice."
The GeoQpons Difference
Unlike daily deal sites, like Groupon or LivingSocial, GeoQpons has many more deals and offers available every day and focuses on shopping the way a consumer would like to shop, not by daily emails for a single business they have little interest in patronizing. When it comes to check-in and local discovery apps, like Foursquare and WHERE, GeoQpons delivers more offers, a superior shopping-focused experience, and user-friendly alerts to help consumers save at the right place and right time. Relative to Shopkick, businesses do not need to install special equipment and shoppers do not need to play games or deal with virtual currency. Overall, the mobile app experience and the wealth of content are vastly superior on GeoQpons than with existing mobile coupon and shopping applications. Business owners enjoy the simplicity of GeoQpons, the freedom to design their own offers, and they avoid paying the daily deal providers a large portion of every customer's bill.
