Shop A Docket Goes Mobile

Shop A Docket rolls out Australia’s largest mobile phone coupon program!

Australia’s 9 million smartphone users will now have access to more than 2,500 free discount coupons on their mobiles, in the largest roll out of mobile phone redemption in the country.

Consumers can now search, find and redeem all Shop A Docket discount coupons and vouchers from their phones, no matter where they live, shop or work.

“We have more than 2,500 free offers uploaded and ready to access today,” said Tim Wingrove, National Sales Manager for Shop A Docket.

“It is now even easier to find discounts for restaurants, coffee, hair cuts, gyms, pizza, carpet cleaning and much more.

“From national franchises to small businesses, we’ve made it simple to connect customers with their local businesses.”

Shop A Docket’s mCoupon project, two years in the making, is the largest of its kind in Australia.

“Until today discount coupons have been restricted to shopping receipts and online,” Mr Wingrove said.

“Now it no longer matters if you are the main grocery buyer, travelling interstate, or working in an area where you don’t shop – free coupons will be accessible around the clock and you don’t need to carry receipts with you. All you need is an internet enabled phone.”

The mobile phone redemption program uses Google location technology and a simple search and select menu to identify offers in an area. Consumers present their phone at the point of sale to simply redeem the offer. There is no requirement to register or download an app to access the offers.

“We expect this initiative will revolutionise the way shoppers decide where to spend their money.”

The mCoupon program cements Shop A Docket’s position as the dominant player in the discount coupon space.
