SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Just in time for holiday shopping, Billeo, Inc. announces that its new ShopSmart™ App for iPad is now available on the App Store. ShopSmart™ instantly alerts users about deals from their loyalty and rewards programs, favorite merchants and daily deal services, delivering an average of 10 percent savings on each purchase.
Billeo's unique technology combs through the countless, and often complicated, discounts and deals offered by a shopper's loyalty and reward programs and then displays relevant offers that can be applied to a sought-after item -- instantly delivering savings. Overlaid on top of existing sales and deals from top merchants, shoppers can often take advantage of double-or triple-dip savings -- including cash back, additional points and other rewards. ShopSmart™ also helps shoppers manage their accounts from popular daily deal services, like Groupon, and allows them to share offers and get friends' feedback via Facebook on purchasing decisions.
"We're entering another holiday season where saving as much money as possible will shape people's shopping habits," said Murali Subbarao, CEO of Billeo, Inc. "ShopSmart was created to help simplify the process of saving money by doing the hard work of tracking and presenting deals and offers across various merchant offerings, daily deal sites and loyalty and rewards programs."
How it Works
ShopSmart™ users select the debit and credit cards they have and the loyalty programs they use. From then on, when someone's shopping in the app, ShopSmart™ automatically checks against Billeo's network of deals and the shopper's loyalty and reward programs -- instantly alerting the shopper to relevant offers. It also safely saves and auto fills payment and shipping information in the app's eWallet, helping save time at checkout, and connects users to Facebook friends so they can get friends' opinions on an item before purchasing, without leaving the app.
Billeo's ShopSmart™ App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
