Dealing with deals, especially during the holiday is season, is a bit hectic. Even though we do our home work on making a list of our favorite brands, deals and right choice of stores/malls, we often end up realizing the fact that we have missed out on a lot of offers , and even more frustrating after we have left some coupons back home.
Now that we know there is an app for everything, the app world has brought up couponing apps as an ultimate solution for our shopping needs.
Some of the apps in this category work on geofencing technology for alerting users while they reach at particular vicinity of the store. Others like Shopkick have their own technology that syncs with sensors on the shop to get them noticed on the discounts and offers.
Shopular is one such app, but a bit more advanced in grabbing deals to us. Former Shopkick engineers Navneet Loiwal and Tommy Tsai build up the idea of Shopular.
Liowal says that we are missing out tons of our savings in shopping, so with their app we don’t even need to bother even switching on the app every time when we go to our stores.
Unlike other apps Shopular runs on background based on GPS, WiFi and cellular sensors to pop up the deals and coupons. All you need to do is to show your digital coupon to the billing section to claim it.
For getting more personalized sorting on deals the app utilizes Facebook Connect to get your likes and you can also setting your interest for more customized result. What the app does is that it crawls through brands’ websites, Facebook pages and email offers to get the news on deals.
For now, the app only supports 1000 malls across the country, with coupons from over 100 well known brand outlets.
