Free mobile app and web site lets shoppers compare cost of cash prices
versus loyalty program currency
KITCHENER, ON, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Loyalty and engagement computing
leader LoyaltyMatch Inc. today launched RewardingYourself, a mobile app
to help shoppers find the best deals when making in store, local,
online or loyalty program purchases.

online and loyalty program prices then decide whether to use cash or
loyalty program points to make the purchase. The app is free now at the
Android Market and Blackberry App World. It will be available at the
Apple App store later this month. A web app is also available at RewardingYourself.com. Shoppers who are not members of a loyalty program will still find the
app essential for comparing cash prices.

than 50,000 stores and hundreds of loyalty programs and is powered by
the LoyaltyMatch OnDemand social loyalty Software as a Service (SaaS)
gamification solution and a patent pending virtual and real currency

"Black Friday" kick-off to the holiday shopping season including
integration with the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) social platform. This
will allow the 40 million BBM users worldwide to initiate peer-to-peer
shopping with other BBM users, invite friends to join the program or
download the RewardingYourself app and post personal messages to all
their friends describing their shopping and rewards experience.

points go unused each year in the United States," said Brad Ball,
