Snipp Launches a Record 21 New Programs in the Past Month

BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - June 18, 2015) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp"), (TSX VENTURE:SPN) an international provider of mobile marketing solutions announced today the launch of twenty-one new programs over the past month, a new record.

The 21 programs were launched for nine unique clients (agencies and brands), five of whom were existing Snipp customers. Of the twenty-one programs launched, seven were for brands that have utilized Snipp services before.

David Hargreaves, Chief Client Officer of Snipp, said, "We are extremely pleased with this new record number of campaigns we launched this month. These programs span multiple industries and validate our capabilities across product categories. We're also thrilled to include a program launched by Hip Digital, the digital rewards provider we recently acquired. We closed the transaction a week ago and they have already started adding value!"

Below are brief descriptions of the campaigns. For contractual and competitive reasons, Snipp does not disclose the names of some of its clients on public releases.

Food and Beverage Movie Promotion. This is the first rewards promotion since Snipp's acquisition of Hip Digital last week. A leading beverage brand is running a movie promotion where consumers can collect codes from specifically marked bottles and cans of the soda brand at participating retailers to win movie tickets for a soon to be released movie. The codes can be entered online through a link on the brand website that takes them to a reward microsite hosted by Hip Digital. See more here: http://bit.ly/1KWuOts

Large CPG Loyalty Program. One of the world's largest food companies and a member of the Fortune 500 is using Snipp's receipt processing solution as a replacement to its current code-on-pack redemption mechanism for its loyalty program. The program is one of the largest CPG loyalty programs in the world. Instead of finding and entering in the code for each qualifying product, consumers can simply take a photo of their entire receipt. SnippCheck will scan the receipt, identify all qualifying items and the consumer will have their points automatically credited into their loyalty account.

Selfie Promotion for Mobile Loyalty Network. A leading mobile loyalty network and existing Snipp client has launched a campaign for a leading charcoal brand. Ads displayed across the company's network direct consumers to a Snipp-enabled promotional microsite. In a unique twist, consumers are required to take a selfie of themselves with the qualifying product in order to earn loyalty points. SnippCheck is handling the image validation required for this particular campaign.

A large marketing promotions firm and existing Snipp partner has launched two programs on the Snipp platform this past month.

CPG Promotion and Sweepstakes. To drive an increase in basket size for a leading toothpaste brand, the company is running a promotion where consumers can purchase participating products and submit their receipt by text, email or web upload. Post validation of their receipts by SnippCheck, the consumer gets a chance to 'play' to win a prize instantly and receive an entry into the Grand Prize sweepstakes.

Summer Sweepstakes for Alcoholic Beverage Brand. Consumers can text a keyword to receive a link to an age-gated web page, where they can then register to be entered into the sweepstakes to win one of 30 gift cards. Snipp's Snipp2U messaging solution is being used to power the entire promotion including the age-gate. See more here: http://bit.ly/1INxebF

Food Company Movie promotion. A leading American food company has launched a promotion on the Snipp platform where consumers who purchase any qualifying product receive a code for a $13 print-at-home movie certificate to see an upcoming fantasy film.

A leading coupon site and existing Snipp client has launched nine offers this past month through its API integration with the SnippCheck receipt processing solution. While two of the offers are only available via the client's app, for the first time the seven other programs were launched across the company's desktop site and publicized via their email distribution list.

Beauty Products Retailer Cash Back Offer. Consumers get $5 cash back in the form of a PayPal credit when they spend $50 or more in-store at this retailer. This promo has two submission methods, via the app and web upload.

Sporting Goods Retailer Cash Back Offer. Similar to the program above, consumers who spend $50 at the retailer and submit their receipt will receive $5 cash back in the form of PayPal credit.

The same coupon site has also launched 7 E-Receipt Digital Rebate Programs in a single day with Snipp. All seven participating retailers have differing levels of spend required to qualify for the $5 cash back reward. In a first with this client, SnippCheck is being used to validate purchases made only at the online stores for each of the participating retailers. Unlike previous programs, the client is publicizing these offers on its desktop site and through its email distribution list and expects to see significantly greater participating volumes than it has in the past.
