Snapstar, the first grocery brand loyalty app that allows customers to get rewarded by brands, has launched its beta product, available for Android. Snapstar allows users to take a photo of their grocery receipt and be rewarded with gift cards, giveaways and more when they purchase products from more than 30 major brands.
Users take a photo of their grocery store receipt, and the Snapstar app automatically categorizes the products on the receipt using its unique scanning and data extraction technology. Users are rewarded with stars for qualifying products, which they can bank and exchange for rewards like gift cards, or use to enter into daily giveaways for a variety of larger prizes.
Instead of downloading individual loyalty apps, consumers using Snapstar are able to get rewarded for all their grocery store purchases in one place. Consumers also are not required to scan individual products or barcodes to get rewarded; Snapstar gathers data directly from the receipt.
“Our innovative technology makes it easy for users to get rewarded without any extra work on their part,” said Daniel Rejzner, co-founder and CEO of Snapstar. “A simple photo of their receipt is all that’s needed; after that, the app takes over. Snapstar also provides brands with the opportunity to interact directly with their customers, better understanding their buying habits and providing relevant rewards and incentives.”
The company behind Snapstar, OurCart, recently won the PepsiCo Insight Challenge for its B2B, receipt-based direct-to-consumer loyalty technology. Snapstar currently is partnering with CPG companies for category-exclusive partnerships on the app.
