Snipp Interactive Launches Six New Programs on Its SnippCheck Receipt and Image Validation Platform

BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - Nov. 18, 2014) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp") (TSX VENTURE:SPN), an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (Trading Symbol: SPN), announced the launch of five new campaigns this past week.

Restaurant Purchase Promotion. The largest coupon deal site in the US launched its first offer using SnippCheck, Snipp's unique receipt and image validation solution, to incentivize and reward consumers who make in-store purchases. Previous offers required integration with the retailer POS directly, but with SnippCheck they are able to provide offers at the brand level and without any retailer integrations required. In the inaugural program, consumers have to spend a qualifying dollar amount at a popular Italian restaurant to receive an eGift card reward. Receipt submission can be done via web upload, email or text message, all receipts are processed through SnippCheck and once validated, consumers are prompted to register to receive their virtual gift card. http://bit.ly/11yCIa1

Coffeehouse Chain Movie Offer. In partnership with the top movie ticketing company, a leading Seattle-based coffeehouse chain is running a holiday promotion leading up to Thanksgiving. Customers that purchase any product at the coffee chain can send in their receipt or screen grab of their app receipt to receive a free movie ticket through the top movie ticketing company. SnippCheck will validate both in store receipts as well as digital screen grabs for purchases made through the coffeehouse's app. http://bit.ly/1oZgecq

Health Insurance Promotion. A leading content marketing company is also leveraging Snipp to reward insurance subscribers for healthy product purchases. In their quarterly coupon booklet is an offer for customers to purchase any of the featured brands at Walmart to get a $5 Walmart e-Gift card for fresh produce. The first 5,000 participants to submit a photo of their qualifying receipt by MMS, email or online will receive the virtual gift card. See more here: http://bit.ly/1zz6r18.

Gift-Card Sweepstakes. Also launched this week is a campaign for an existing Snipp client, a leader in delivering brand advertising with promotional offers and coupons. The client is running a promotion with SnippCheck where shoppers have a chance to win 16 Walmart e-Gift cards ranging in value from $50 to $500. Shoppers can buy any product featured in the booklet at Walmart during the promotional period and send in a photo of their receipt by email to qualify. Post validation of their receipt by SnippCheck they are entered for a chance to win one of the 16 Walmart e-Gift cards. See more here: ‪bit.ly/1t6YA1l.

Mobile Loyalty Platform Integration. A company with a large mobile loyalty and marketing platform has integrated SnippCheck into their mobile ad network. The ads, which are displayed across a variety of different publishers, direct consumers to a promotional microsite for a food manufacturer brand. Customers who purchase the qualifying products from any retailer can upload their qualifying receipts through the Snipp-enabled microsite, which is in turn integrated with the company's API. SnippCheck validates the receipts and once validated, the consumer is rewarded with loyalty points. See more here: http://bit.ly/1t1AaaM

Lead Collection iPad App for Manufacturer. A window manufacturing company is providing sales representatives with a custom iPad app to help generate additional sales. The app, developed by Snipp, allows sales representatives to take pictures and associate them with potential client information, play videos provided by the window manufacturer, and share all sales presentations by email to highlight the benefits. All leads entered are sent to the manufacturer to enhance their database collection.

Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp, said, "We are thrilled with the launch of these exciting campaigns. All of these purchase-based promotions help our clients measure and improve the effectiveness of their offline and online marketing efforts. We will continue to focus on developing new and exciting solutions for our clients with our innovative platform, and continue to help clients achieve their shopper marketing and consumer promotions goals."
