MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/— Coupons.com Incorporated (NYSE: COUP), a leader in digital coupons, today announced a strategic partnership with Samsung to power mobile savings for more than 20 million Samsung flagship devices in the U.S. Shoppers can now add Coupons.com’s Card Linked Offers (CardLink iQ™) via their Samsung Wallet for automatic redemption at checkout. With a single tap, shoppers can add coupons from top national retailers and restaurants directly to their Visa, American Express and MasterCard.
“We are thrilled to be Samsung’s preferred partner,” said Steven Boal, president and chief executive officer of Coupons.com Incorporated. “Our goal is always to make saving simple while reaching the most shoppers – and this partnership does exactly that. Once you add the offer you want, you’re all set to shop. The discount will be automatically applied when you pay.”
Card Linked Offers, which Coupons.com launched in April, is designed with mobile shoppers in mind. This holiday season, nearly 56 percent of smartphone users are expected to use their devices to assist them with holiday shopping, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation (NRF). Not surprisingly, shoppers also told the NRF that where they shop will largely be determined by the deals and savings they can find.
“We are striving to enhance Samsung Wallet through strategic partnerships and to connect users to more useful content,” said Dong-ouk Park, Senior Vice President of Samsung Electronics. “As coupon redemption continues to play a more and more prominent role in the mobile shopping experience, our service will allow consumers to save money more conveniently when shopping (online or) offline.”
Samsung Wallet is available on the Galaxy S® III, Galaxy S® 4, Galaxy® S 5, Galaxy Note®, Galaxy Note® II, Galaxy Note® 3, Galaxy Note® 4 and the wearable, Samsung Gear® S.
How it works:
1. Download or Launch the Samsung Wallet: Card Linked offers are available on Samsung Galaxy S® series and Galaxy Note®devices in the US. The Samsung Wallet is available for download from Samsung Galaxy Apps or Google Play.
2. Link Payment Card: Shoppers register their preferred credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) or debit cards through their Wallet.
3. Single Tap to Select Coupons: Shoppers browse offers and simply click to load the offers. Card Linked offers are for cash discounts or gift cards. Shoppers should check back frequently as new offers are continuously added.
4. Shop: Upon checkout, a text message or email notification confirming the acceptance of the offer is sent if the purchase meets the conditions of the offer. The discounts are credited directly to your account.
In the coming months, the savings available through CardLInk iQ and the Samsung Wallet will increase as Coupons.com continues to add more features and offers including ever-more relevant and personalized coupons.
