Remember the days when you’d go to a web site, find something you like, go to checkout and then see the promo code box? You’d freak out and start frantically searching web sites like 9malls.com or RetailMeNot for coupon codes only to realize there are none available. A couple named Alice and Bryan Payne felt your pain and began developing the next generation of coupon/discount shopping, but this time instead of you searching for the coupon the coupon finds you.

Yes, you heard right the coupon code actually finds you using location based tracking. Alice and Bryan Payne were avid seekers of the best deal. King and Queens of discount shopping, but the pursuit of finding the best price started to become a full time job. They wanted and needed a faster way of finding deals, but there simply wasn’t anything out there. That’s why in 2014, Payne founded Skout Deals, which offers a free location-based deals app.

Sounds Great, But What Does The App Do Exactly?

“We want to take all the deals from all the brick-and-mortar merchants and let you automatically find deals on items nearby,” Payne says. “Or you can save what you’re looking for — a certain restaurant or a pair of pants — and we notify you when there’s a deal.”

Today the app gives users a whopping 50,000 deals per day! That’s more deals that you could redeem in a lifetime most likely. In August, Skout Deals signed a nationwide partnership with Walmart and Best Buy.

Who Uses This App

The whole concept of coupon codes from paper to internet I think has gone a bit stale, people are desperately searching for an easier way. For this reason the app is taking off in a big way. Skout Deals has 100,000 members nationwide, including 13,000 in Austin TX alone. They say everything is bigger in Texas, including the discounts and user base.

How Does This Company Make Money?

“The company makes money from merchants, with rates ranging from $69 to $199 a month. There is also a free plan that includes one deal a month and no analytics or social media promotions.”

Who Are They

“Who they are: Payne is a veteran yearbook industry executive, where he was a pioneer of online yearbook creation web apps. He was most recently president of Picaboo Yearbooks, which sells online yearbook software.”

Conclusion

100,000 users may sound like a lot, but in order to get this thing even bigger its going to take a lot of work. One problem is getting people to download the app and second it’s getting merchants interested in the product. Help make Skout Deals even more of a success download their app today and if you are a small business they offer a 30 day free trial.
