VANCOUVER, April 3, 2012 /CNW/ - The newly released CheckinSave app is a game changer by giving smartphone users a financial incentive for 'Checking-in' to venues and business owners get huge social media exposure for free.
CheckinSave is an exciting new location-based mobile app that allows users to earn redeemable points by 'checking in' to venues with their mobile device. They accumulate more valuable points as their Facebook friends and Twitter Followers patronize the same venues. Points are used to save consumers money as CheckinSave venues post special discount offers.
Co-founder Jordan Brill commented; "With about 800 million smartphone users worldwide, we saw that geo-location check-ins are rapidly growing in popularity but we also recognized that current systems lacked sufficient rewards. So we built the CheckinSave platform completely around a financial reward model. Now consumers enjoy an added motivation for sharing their location with their social network - they earn points to save money! This is also a major win for venues such as restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, coffee shops, car rental companies, etc., because unlike pushy Internet-based coupon offerings that cost the venues money, CheckinSave is completely free and venues can easily self manage their discount offerings to attract CheckinSave members. It allows venues to quickly and easily join the social-marketing revolution."
CheckinSave is owned by Game Plan Holdings Inc., which operates several social networking properties. CheckinSave is a free app that can now be downloaded for iPhone and iPad from iTunes and the Android version from Google Play. In addition to the powerful app, the CheckinSave website provides users with a robust interactive experience. Users register online, visit participating CheckinSave or Foursquare venues and check in by geo-tagging their locations from their mobile phone, which broadcasts through their social network. Every time a user checks in or a user's friend/follower, from their social network checks in to the same venue (within a period of time), the user accumulates points on their account. Accumulated points can be redeemed for money-saving coupons at participating venues.
