The current coupon distribution
model is broken and outdated.
Conversion rate was poor before. It’s abysmal now.
Print People don’t clip coupons
and no longer buy printers.
Expensive for businesses to
develop multi-platform apps.
Inconsistent UI. Consumers have
to install an app for every business.
This is how we’re fixing it.
using an iOS POS
to mobile devices
Businesses can use their
existing iOS POS device
running the bargainez app to
push coupons to passers-by.
They can also use strategically
placed Estimote iBeacons
to push coupons to even more
mobile devices in the area.
We’re also using iBeacon technology for coupon redemption.
You just need to be at checkout.
No QR code to scan.
No handing over your phone.
No NFC device to bring your phone to.

You first take control of your bargainez page.
You can then share coupons
and products that are on sale.
And it’s free.
It will show up on the user’s home
stream if they hearted your store,
and instantly on their phone if
they chose to receive alerts.
And that’s nice, but you know what’s great?

The consumer experience.
Customers have to search through
many invalid and expired coupons.
They must manually try every coupon
code until they find a working one.
When they find a coupon that works,
they have to print it for in-store use,
or copy & paste the code online.
All coupons are valid and unique to
the person redeeming it.
There are no coupon codes nor any
coupons to print.
Tap on the coupon and it’s ready for
you at checkout. Online or in-store.
The business experience.
Businesses can’t manage their page
or share coupons directly.
They can’t gather metrics or control
the coupon distribution.
They must rely on the community and
the site’s staff to share the discounts.
Businesses claim their page and get
access over its content and design.
They view various metrics and the
conversion rate of their coupons.
They control coupon distribution by
demographics, shopping history, etc.
The potential of coupons is untapped.
