GeoQpons Changes the Game for Mobile Shoppers and Local Business

Company Will Pay Shoppers $10 to Recruit Their Favorite Local Businesses

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - GeoQpons, the hottest mobile shopping application for smart phones, today announced that it will pay shoppers to sign-up their favorite local businesses on the GeoQpons mobile shopping platform. Shoppers who recruit a local business -- be it a dry cleaner, a hardware store, an auto body shop, or a restaurant -- will earn a $10 Amazon gift card once that business establishes an account with GeoQpons and pays its first month of service. Additionally, the business will save $10 on their first month of service on GeoQpons. This game-changing program is aimed at making it easier for businesses to join the mobile shopping phenomenon without the pains and hassles of installing equipment or giving away the store on a one-day deal. In the process, GeoQpons shoppers get the added benefit of finding the latest deals from their favorite local businesses and businesses can take part in the mobile shopping revolution at very low cost.

The GeoQpons Difference
Unlike daily deal sites, like Groupon or Living Social, GeoQpons has many more deals and offers available every day and focuses on shopping the way a consumer would like to shop, not by daily emails for a business they have no interest in patronizing. When it comes to check-in applications and local discovery apps, like Foursquare and WHERE, GeoQpons has more offers, a superior shopping-focused experience, and user-friendly alerts to help consumers save at the right place and right time. Relative to Shopkick, businesses do not need to install special equipment and shoppers do not need to play games or deal with virtual currency. Overall, the mobile app experience and the wealth of content are vastly superior on GeoQpons than with existing mobile coupon and shopping applications. Business owners enjoy the simplicity of GeoQpons, the freedom to design their own offers, and avoid paying the daily deal providers a large portion of every customer's bill.

How It Works
To begin recruiting their favorite local businesses and earning money, consumers first need to download GeoQpons from their respective smart phone app stores (Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Nokia) or by visiting www.GeoQpons.com. In the GeoQpons app, users obtain a personal GeoCode by visiting the 'Profile' page and signing up for the program. With their GeoCode in hand, the consumer can visit local businesses to pitch the GeoQpons business service. Business owners then visit the company website (www.GeoQpons.com) to establish an account. At checkout, the business owner can enter the customer's GeoCode -- thus earning $10 off the first month of service (regular price $39). At the end of each month, GeoQpons will send a $10 Amazon gift card to the consumer for every business that signed up using his or her personal GeoCode.
