One lucky shopper will win a year of free groceries for uploading a
receipt through Nov. 11
announced the launch of Snap by GrouponTM (snap.groupon.com),
a free app that pays people cash for buying featured grocery and
consumer-packaged goods items each week at any supermarket or retailer
in the United States and Canada. Starting today, Android and iPhone
users can earn money when they buy an item listed in the app and take a
picture of their receipt.* To help celebrate the debut of Snap, people
who download the app and use it to submit any grocery receipt through
Nov. 11, 2014 can enter a sweepstakes to win a year of free groceries
for an entire family, a value of $13,000.**
Snap features cash-back offers on a variety of everyday grocery items,
ranging from basic staples such as bread and milk to personal care and
household products such as diapers and cleaning supplies.
"Snap is the latest way that we're helping people discover new brands
and save money on the things they buy every day," said Sean Smyth, vice
president and general manager, Snap by Groupon. "We're using the power
of smartphones to make couponing easier and more convenient while paying
people to shop."
Shoppers can use Snap to build their own grocery shopping list within
the app and add featured items they wish to purchase during their trip.
After a user accumulates $20 in cash back, they're eligible to cash out.
"Snap builds on Groupon's enormous mobile footprint of almost 92 million
global app downloads, while allowing brands to connect with shoppers in
a far more personal and targeted way," Smyth added.
