Scanbuy Reinvents ScanLife App So Users Can Receive Targeted Discounts/Recommendations Based on Scanning Activity and Self-Selected Categories of Interest


Scanbuy, the world’s leading mobile engagement solutions provider, today announced a major upgrade to its popular ScanLife app for Android and iOS devices, giving consumers the opportunity to receive personalized deals and promotions as well as rewards based on their scanning activity via the app’s recommendation engine.

With a completely redesigned dashboard, ScanLife users can:

  • Scan a QR Code or UPC code and choose to receive “hyper-targeted” incentives, coupons and other deals from among thousands of national and local stores based on their product scan in the Deals page and in-app Inbox. For example, a consumer who scans a DVD player’s UPC code would receive special offers for home entertainment products.
  • Select from a dozen product categories themselves on the My Interests page to receive recommended product offers in Health and Beauty, Food and Drink, Automotive, Travel and Tourism, and more, enabling the user to be in full control of the offers they receive
  • Earn “mobile points” or mPoints for scanning products, checking their Inbox, selecting their categories of interest, connecting to Facebook, and discovering new deals. The points can be redeemed for rewards such as gift cards from iTunes, Amazon, Starbucks and other online retailers, charitable donations or fun merchandise. mPoints is fully integrated into the app to reward active users for their loyalty.

“With the refreshed ScanLife app, our tens of millions of users worldwide will now be able to take advantage of personalized digital offers in addition to engaging with their favorite brands through scanning,” said Mike Wehrs, president and CEO of Scanbuy. “Many apps today provide generic offers or promotions that do not take into account a user’s real interest areas. ScanLife delivers hyper-targeted promotions through a user’s scanning history and directly expressed interests.”

Functioning as a personalized shopping companion, ScanLife users can adjust the frequency of messages received to daily, weekly or monthly. All messages are displayed in-app and can be viewed at the user’s convenience.

To kickoff the new app, Scanbuy has launched the ‘ScanLife $1,000 Giveaway’ offering the user with the most scanning activity over the next 30 days a $1,000 prize. Users receive a message in the app Inbox prompting them to enter for a chance to win.

ScanLife is the most popular mobile engagement app in the world with users discovering new information from their real-world environment every day. The app is available for free on all major platforms, including Android and iOS.
