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.”


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.


Waffle Books Happy Mobile Storybooks On Patreon

I remember the days scouring my grade school library bookshelf for the latest copies of Berenstain Bears. In fact I was such a huge fan a few years later I told a classmate that I like Berenstain Bears and he was shocked I “still read those books.” That sadly was the last time I read Berenstain Bears. I bring up this story because kids today still read books, but the platform they are read on are much different. In my time the platform was paper and ink now in the 21st century it’s mobile. Thankfully there is a author writing just for this 21st century platform called Waffle Books.

Support Waffle Books on Patreon:


Waffle Books

Waffle Books follows the adventures of Patrick, Kevin, Arty, and a few of their friends. When Matthew Ryan started writing children’s books his mission was to give kids access to a library of books they’d be interested in inside their pocket. A library full of books that are designed specifically for small screens.

How’s Matthew Ryan Doing Today?

Today I’m happy to report the response has been fantastic! Not only does Ryan get to follow his passion writing books, his books get 4+ ratings on Apple iBooks and many have been editorially featured by Apple, Google Play, and the Google Chrome Store.

Are There Any Bonuses?

Yes, like many many Patreon campaigns I’ve featured on Cash Sherpa there are bonuses. Do you worry! For $1 you get FULL ACCESS to the Waffle Book collection! Yes, you heard right only $1. That’s insanity! For only $5 get early access to books. $10 gets you behind the scenes. $15 or more per month gets you hand drawn characters, once a month in fact. You can’t even buy a mixed drink in New York for less than $15. The value of these bonuses are incredible.


I know it’s an old argument, but growing up with the Internet we got used to free or near free pricing. What I think we failed to realize is that when everything is free or nearly free it becomes generic, almost utility like. I think it’s already started, but society needs to support/value the people and products that resonate with us. It’s time we put our money where our mouth is. Let artists and creators earn money pursuing their passions. Support Matthew Ryan’s Patreon campaign today.

Need A Date? Try BOOMBAYA Dating App

  • Comments Off on Need A Date? Try BOOMBAYA Dating App

Are you in desperate need of a date and have already tried all the other dating apps? If the answer is yes than you need to try the BOOMBAYA Dating App. Download the app on Google Play:


Lets face it Tinder and Bumble might be an OK way to meet people, but they have extremely unengaging user interfaces. Basically the app subjugates the user to endless left or right swiping. You become a mindless dating drone, endlessly swiping on your quest to happily ever after. Once you get a match there is endless back and forth banter until the date is or isn’t set up. Where’s the fun? That’s what the new dating app BOOMBAYA is trying to solve. They are putting the fun and personality back into dating apps.


Features of the BOOMBAYA dating app include:

– Check my profile tier ie how attractive you are. Think Hot Or Not from years past. Fun yes? Scary to many, yes as well.

– Also, you can see who liked your profile.

– You will be matched with people who meet your expectations and dating standards. If you live in a city with not many available options rest assured the BOOMBAYA algorithm will do it’s best finding you the best match.

– Super Match. BOOMBAYA has a Super Match option where your potential suitor gets your message instantly.

– Rewind to last match/card.

– Have a wonderful conversation They provide cute emojis which are the best icebreaker in a chat. Have a wonderful and healthy conversation with others.

– Robust report system

Did what I just said sound like the premium version of Tinder or Bumble? With BOOMBAYA you get all this with the free version. With the BOOMBAYA A+ Plus version you get much more. Get unlimited cards and sending likes, more super matches, chat right away, unlimited rewinding last cards, location change, travel anywhere you want, unlock all people who are highly interested in you, and reset your profile tier for unlimited times.

But wait there’s more… Yes, you heard right. To all those finicky daters not satisfied with the free or A+ version there is a VIP version of BOOMBAYA. Become a VIP member and become a King or Queen of online dating. With the VIP upgrade super match is unlimited, chat right away, boost your profile tier up to 2.0x depending on your current tier and be more popular and get more matches, also, all of A+ Plus features are included.

One problem with dating apps is they simply aren’t useful if there isn’t a large enough user base. Even though this might be the case I think BOOMBAYA could take off, download test it out, see if you like it, then get your friends to join. If you live in a city like New York chances are there are enough people on there already. The team at BOOMBAYA has developed algorithm to match users who are active and minimize ghost users for a better experience. So even with less users of Tinder and Bumble, for example, BOOMBAYA has created an app that gives you a fighting chance on finding a date and makes it fun in the process. What a concept.
