Dealsplus Releases Mobile App for Shopping and Saving
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Dealsplus has announced that they have released a new mobile app designed to help consumers shop online by bringing relevant coupons and deals directly to a shopper’s iPhone. The Dealsplus app, unlike many of the couponing apps available, focuses on products and the shopping experience, not on coupon codes. This shift in focus provides consumers with a new, more visually immersive way to shop and save online. The Dealsplus app also fixes a flaw in most couponing apps that requires a shopper to leave the app in order to complete a purchase.
“Until today’s launch of the Dealsplus app shoppers had some pretty poor choices,” says Kiha Lee, CEO of Dealsplus, who went on to clarify, “Previously shoppers needed to choose between a shopping app to get the experience they wanted or a couponing app to get the prices they wanted, our app provides them with the best of both experiences.”
In other apps a shopper is often required to select a coupon before shopping. If the coupon fails to work or doesn’t match what a shopper ultimately purchases, the shopper needs to abandon the shopping session, select a new coupon and start over from the beginning. “It is a huge design flaw in all the other apps out there and obviously a problem that needed to be fixed,” says Jacob Chapman, Dealsplus’ VP of Corporate Strategy. Dealsplus has addressed this concern with a proprietary shop first, save second technology which enables shoppers to easily switch between coupons during the shopping process.
Jacob continues, “At the end of the day our users want to save money but they don’t want to feel like coupon shoppers, this is the first app that lets them have their cake and eat it too.”
