We have to admit – we might be fashion bloggers but we’re also closet nerd-birds. After all, geek is chic!
So we’re excited to see an app that uses technology to reward you for one of our favourite things – shopping! Simply by opening the app when you enter a participating store, you can start earning points that can be redeemed for clothes, music or even a TV!
One of the ShopGuru girls was kind enough to give us a demo at their launch, held at Bread & Butter Mandarin Gallery.
If you open up the app near a participating store, it greets you by name!
More points for scanning a QR code in-store. Kaching!
Bonus points for showing the cashier your app – even more to redeem!
Here’s how it works:
There’s a pretty awesome line-up of retailers you can earn points at, including Bread & Butter, Evisu, True Religion, 7 for All Mankind, Baby Phat, Springfield, Tally Weijl and Affliction. The list of redemption partners is even longer – but if you don’t want to redeem your points you can share offers or even donate points to charity!
The app has just launched on 1 May on iPhone but it’ll be available on Android later this year.
