Mobile Commerce: Walmart boosts Scan & Go self-checkout with Mobile Coupons

Mobile Commerce: Walmart boosts Scan & Go self-checkout with Mobile Coupons | Couponing, M-Couponing, E-Couponing, M-Wallet & Co. | Scoop.it

Walmart continues to ramp up its mobile in-store Scan & Go program by giving users the ability to clip coupons by tapping their smartphones and having the savings automatically applied when they check out.

 

Scan & Go, a feature on the Walmart application, enables users to scan merchandise in certain stores and pay at a self-checkout counter. The latest update to the app features the new digital coupon capabilities as well as the ability to scan a QR code on a printed receipt to receive an electronic version.

sophiedesc's insight:

"Mobile coupons are a quickly growing area because of the perceived benefit to consumers of being able to store coupons on their smartphones. This helps ensure that users always have their coupons with them and do not have to worry about forgetting them at home.

However, mobile coupons present some challenges, including how to redeem them in-store and accurately track them.

Another advantage mobile potentially brings to coupons is the ability to personalize them, driving adoption, usage and sales."


"For example, the Stop & Shop supermarket chain offers the Scan It! app, which enables loyalty members to scan and bag their groceries while also providing access to exclusive, personalized offers. The retailer reports a 10 percent lift in spending from customers that use Scan It!."

Love the idea of mobile coupons!! I only use an iphone and do not have  a computer, so for me, and I'm sure I'm not alone, I am unable to pint coupons, which I lose a boat load of savings, freebies an deals, I'm just a stay at home mom trying to save a dime like everyone else!! So let's push for these mobile coupons so that EVERYONE can enjoy the same savings without the hassle of clipping, printing and organizing!!

Target educates consumers on Mobile Shopping via in-store promotions, video | Couponing, M-Couponing, E-Couponing, M-Wallet & Co. | Scoop.it

Target has launched two new marketing initiatives to drive downloads of its mobile application that also educate consumers about the benefits of mobile shopping. 

The big-box retailer is using both in-store signage and an online video to drive downloads of its mobile app. The goal behind Target using these initiatives is to connect with in-store shoppers who are engaged with the digital and in-store shopping experience.

sophiedesc's insight:

"Target is smart to roll out in-store promotions of its mobile app to not only drive downloads, but also help consumers who are in a pinch in-store and are looking for quick help.

 

Target has been educating consumers on how to shop from their mobile devices for years: 

- in-app advertising campaign to promote its mobile/SMS coupons. 

- Target used in-store QR codes during the holidays last year to let consumers discretely shop 20 of the season’s most popular toys
