Shooger, a crowdsourced deal-hunting network designed specifically for the mobile experience, launched today to provide everyone with the inside scoop on the best deals. The app is free to download and offers hyper local deals, limited-time-only discounts, special promotions you must know to ask for, product recommendations and even insider tips on how to get the best deals.
“The best deals have always been the ones you hear about from your friends. Shooger is like having a whole bunch of deal finding friends sharing their tips with you,” said Donick Cary, Executive Producer of Shooger and Emmy winning writer from “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Simpsons.” “You can follow real people and their real deals – It’s a great big mobile reality show that saves you money.”
Shooger is creating an extensive community of users, that scout for deals and then shares them with the Shooger network, helping everyone to save time and money and gain that all important insider information on the best local deals. Users can search for deals either by category or location and offers are constantly updated so there’s always something new available
“Some of the best deals around never see the light of day – they’re not advertised in the newspaper or showcased on a store sign. You have to know to who ask,” said Milen Mishkovsky, Shooger’s CIO. “With Shooger on your smartphone, you’ve got instant access to exclusive information, no matter where you are.”
Shooger is more than just a network of users sharing deals. It also has a fun aspect that allows astute deal-finders to work their way up in the ranks.
The savviest Shooger deal-finders can become Shooger Experts, posting deals and creating their own channel around specific categories of interest or in specific geographic locations. For example, a nutrition guru might become the Shooger Expert on sales of organic food products. Or, the fashionista could become the local Shooger Expert sharing the best clothing and accessory deals in herneighbor hood. Shooger Experts are tastemakers and community leaders, helping to curate the vast amount of deals generated by Shooger users.
Shooger is currently available on the iPhone with versions for Android and BlackBerry coming soon. You can download Shooger in the Apple App Store or by visiting www.shooger.com
