Is Your Mobile Your New Holiday Shopping Buddy?

‘Tis the season to shop shop shop…

But before heading out, check to see if you have opted-in! Many major retailers such as children’s clothing retailer, Gymboree, and women’s fashion specialty store, Charlotte Russe, are utilizing mobile coupons and promotions to give their loyal customers and subscribers exclusive offers along with insider information on their latest products. Shoppers can equip themselves with these innovative promotions to make their dollar stretch.

Mobile coupons and discounts are perfect for busy shoppers because many consumers do not actually use direct mail promotions, printed coupons or email because they often forget them at home or don’t have internet access on their phones. What they do have is their mobile device handy not only to make sure they can find their kids or friends at the mall, but also to receive convenient SMS/MMS messages with access to enticing discounts.

By opting-in to your favorite retailers’ text alerts, they will occasionally send you deals without even having to remember to print or bring any coupons to the store. Also, QR codes have been popping up in retailers all over, but if you’re feeling left out of the loop because you don’t have a smartphone, see if there is a text-in option too. SMS/MMS alerts can be delivered to all phones with messaging capabilities. Forget any connectivity issues or downloading apps, retailers who utilize SMS/MMS text promotions are providing an accessible channel of communication with their customers that aren’t limited by the barriers that QR has.
