A while back I interviewed YOWZA!‘s founder and Heroes telly-vision star Greg Grunberg about the need for mobile coupons. YOWZA! is only available in the United States so the search began for a Canadian solution — enter Clip Mobile and founder David Offierski.
I think the common thread about this type of service is that most of these companies are very young in an industry that has finally emerged — and that industry can accommodate a number of these guys helping the average consumer reduce expenses. Clip Mobile customers don’t offer token discounts, some are offering discounts of up to 40% — significant by any measure and true value to consumers.
The fundamental shift that a well-executed business in this space is a move to fluid pricing — a combination of location-based coupon services and companies like ShopSavvy will help all us of regain control of our wallet by increasing full pricing transparency.[private] Download the audio version
