I’m sure most guys would agree when I say that when it comes to shopping, we prefer to head to the mall, step into a shop, search for that particular product we have in mind, purchase it as quickly as possible then head out the mall. Done and done. But I love how guys in this generation are more experimental when it comes to the products they purchase. They really compare the prices, fit the clothes, study the specs. I guess we are smarter now with how we spend our money.
As for me, I can say that I’m really kuripot. I love buying clothes from ukay-ukays, department stores and I go all out when it comes to mall sales. That is why I was so glad when my friend from college introduced me to this shopping app called “Snipe.” Snipe is a location-based shopping app that lets you discover deals and bargains inside the mall you’re in, instantly. Snipe detects your location, gathers the best of the best deals in the mall you’re in, and presents them as a set of coupons in random order (or based on what specific type of item you have in mind). If you like a coupon, simply swipe it to the right. Or, in short, Snipe it! It’s like Tinder, but for shopping! LOL. Scroll down below to see how the app works, plus a few of my shopping finds via the Snipe app!
Here are four (4) easy steps on how to use the Snipe app:
1. Snipe automatically detects which mall you’re in. So for example, I’m at SM Aura, the app automatically finds all the deals available in that specific mall. To increase your chances of discovering an awesome deal, there are category filters. With those, you can narrow down your search to see only the coupons you’re interested in the most. (Take Note: Snipe only works when you’re in a mall and during mall hours.)
2. Snipe gathers the best of the best deals in the mall you’re in, and presents them as a set of coupons in random order. If you like a coupon, simply swipe it to the right. Or, in short, Snipe it! Keep your eyes peeled as you only get to see those offers once!
3. Coupons you snipe are stored in the wallet. If you don’t like a coupon, don’t fret. Just swipe it down and it will be gone!
4. Want to use a coupon you Sniped? Open up your wallet and redeem the offer by showing the store representative the generated redemption code.
