Tippr presents a new way for internet users to save money and purchase valuable discounts on services, products and more. The site works through the purchasing power of many. Users can subscribe and receive the Tippr Daily Deal newsletter. The site also encourages users to share the newsletter and get more people interested in the deal. The more people who sign up, the greater the discount becomes. Users can then click and buy a promotion that they want. After the deadline has passed, the promotion is sent through email in the form of a voucher that can be used to receive the discount or special offer.
Tippr was created within the software company Kashless, Inc. The company focused on enabling local marketplaces to reach out to more customers. Tippr was officially born through an idea inspired by the input of hundreds of local merchants and thousands of consumers. Through these interviews, the creators learned that local merchants prefer a cost effective way to get the attention of customers, and customers wanted a way to learn more about their community and what it has to offer. The result was the service offered through Tippr. Tippr was launched in February, 2010.
Tippr is unique because it is not a general coupon clipping website. Although users can find many online promotion codes and coupons, Tippr was designed to take it a step further. By utilizing the buying power of many people rather than a hit or miss few, the program can help ensure better return to the merchant. This in turn, encourages a greater discount or improved special offer that consumers will find even more attractive.
The Tippr website takes elements of fun and makes them professional. The stylish barcode logo compliments the clutter-free site layout. New users can quickly and easily find the tools they need to get started. Users can also navigate using the four prominent buttons across the top of the page for simple navigation to current and past deals as well as account information.
New users are asked to create an account to get started using Tippr. A Facebook login option is available to help streamline the process. Users who do not have or do not wish to link their Facebook accounts can click the white “sign up” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. Users must enter their full name, a valid email address, zip code and password. Visitors can also sign up for the newsletter only if they prefer by using the submission box prominently displayed at the center of the Tippr homepage.
The actual cost of Tippr varies depending on how much a user spends on promotions. An account and newsletter subscription is offered for free. Tippr does not charge any kind of membership fees or anything similar. Instead, users can enjoy cost free use of the special offers sent out through Tippr. The only cost comes in the form of a price required for access to a special offer or discount.
The common bargain shopper can really appreciate what Tippr has done for its users. Coupons and discounts are a great way to save money, especially on the places people plan to or want to visit. Tippr has taken this to the next level by negotiating better deals with local businesses in the cities it provides service to.
