HOW IT WORKS
Starting today, when you launch the Foodspotting iPhone app in one of 13 major U.S. cities, you'll see the Scoutmob deals nearest you. You can redeem these deals by simply tapping on the deal and showing the confirmation screen on your iPhone - no credit card, registration or in-app purchase needed! On an Android phone? Stay tuned, as we're working with Scoutmob to bring this feature to our Android app as well.
We've had a crush on Scoutmob for a while - we love their instant, seamless redemption flow, and we've discovered so many great foods thanks to them, like the Fried Oyster Kimchee Burrito @ HRD that we enjoyed last week! Because of this, we can't imagine a better aligned launch partner for instream offers on Foodspotting. What sets Scoutmob apart in the deal space is how it exclusively works with locally-owned businesses, supporting great neighborhood cafes, restaurants, bars and bistros - staying away from national chains or tourist meccas. There are nearly 500 various deals available through Scoutmob at any given time.
We've loved working with Scoutmob's team to make this possible, and as their first distribution partner, we're excited to enable Scoutmob and its business partners to reach a targeted audience of hungry foodseekers!
CELEBRATE WITH US!
What better way to celebrate this happy occasion than by eating? Tomorrow, please join us at one of the four eat-ups we're co-hosting with ScoutMob in San Francisco, Atlanta, New York City and DC. Each of these venues have active Scoutmob deals so that you can test out the Foodspotting + Scoutmob integration right on the spot.
Please RSVP to attend. Just a heads up – we're giving away a limited number of t-shirts so come early to grab yours!
To connect the four events nationwide, we'll have a Twitter contest to win a $50 gift card to the local eatery of your choice, courtesy of Scoutmob. Just fire up the Foodspotting app to see local restaurant deals, and tweet about it with hashtag #mobspotting to be entered to win.
