Why TheCouponCard? Convenience.
TheCouponCard combines digital, Sunday's Newspaper FSI, and printable paper coupons ALL your coupons on 1Card (usable at ANY STORE ) everywhere you wanna shop. TheCouponCard is similar to Kroger or Publix store reward loyalty card where you are able to have coupons added online and are redeemable at store check out POS systems. These cards are only store specific and can only be used at that store. TheCouponCard will be the “Visa Inifinite” of coupon cards, except unlike credit or debit cards, coupons will be the form of currency.
Why TheCouponCard? CONSUMER
It solves lost savings, saves time/trees, access to more coupons so everyone can buy more and healthier food, TheCouponCard will be able to be used at any store and save tons of time at the register YEA!
Why TheCouponCard? CORPORATE
On the corporation side, this would solve: lost profits, part of $400B we threw away, and counterfeiting it's a felony but still big business. With over $750M + yr copied paper coupons, consumer traceability for brand specific P&G, Valassis etc.
