Shoply is a new app that allows users to create a shopping list for the stores they frequently shop at in-person, earning cash back rewards by taking a picture of the receipt after purchase. The same brands are offered at different stores, so earning a reward seems like a no-brainer! Rewards are earned in the form of points that can be redeemed for great companies like Amazon, PayPal, or choose from 80+ other gift card. Shoply is a simple way to earn a micro-income from purchases you would have likely made anyway. This is a great option for people who make a majority of their purchases offline in local stores! Shoply is part of the Prodege family, along with MyPoints, Swagbbucks, and InboxDollars.
Quick Summary: Shopy lets you easily keep track of discount programs, coupons, loyalty programs, gift cards, special promotions and more for your favorite retail establishments. The app will organize your shopping resources into easy to organize and navigate tools to ensure you save the most amount of money possible when out shopping. You also are able to earn additional rewards for participating in special offers or events, or by referring Shoply to friends and family.
How It Works: Shoply is a pretty simple app to follow: download and sign up anonymously or by using your Facebook login. You then will select your favorite or frequently visited stores or brands, which helps Shoply identify deals you would be interested in. “Star” or save the deals you want to purchase - each star saved adds more data to the predictive algorithm to help suggest better, more personalized experience. You also can also browse trending deals based on your location to find local deals and rewards. When you are ready to checkout, the discounts, coupons, star offers, etc will all be nicely prepared and ready for you to show to the cashier.
