Improved App Means More Money for UK Shoppers(June 29, 2012)
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 29 June 2012
Improved functionality for UKs first check in for cash app
- Quidco app increases participating stores from seven to 70+
- Over 22,000 check in locations offer cash incentives throughout the UK
The UKs number one cashback site Quidco, has improved its mobile app enabling smart phone shoppers to take advantage of more offers and cash incentives, from over 70 retailers, when out and about on the high-street.
Launched in May 2011, the UKs first check in for cash app has paid Quidco users over £48,500. This is set to increase significantly as the number of retailers set to join the platform will leap from seven to over 70. Users will be able to see all nearby money saving offers, including vouchers and instore cashback from high-street giants such as Debenhams, Argos, Vodafone and New Look.
The check in function, now available in over 22,000 UK locations, rewards the user with cash when they check in upon entering a store. The shopper is under no obligation to make further purchases and the monetary incentive is paid into the Quidco users account. Responsible for driving footfall for struggling retailers and encouraging shoppers to peruse for longer, the improved app is hoping to inject a new lease of life in to the ailing British high street.
Andy Oldham, Managing Director at Quidco said: Since the launch of our app, our members have taken advantage of check ins up and down the country. We are therefore delighted to build on this success, adding more stores to the check in functionality. This will only mean increased coverage for shoppers when on the high street, resulting in increased check in amounts. Oldham continued: The way in which consumers shop has dramatically changed over the years, with household budgets remaining under pressure. The development of our popular mobile app allows our members to earn money when out and about on the high street aswell as earning cashback from the comfort of their own home.

- Simply download the Quidco Mobile app on smart phones (iPhone and Android)
