CheckPoints, the company behind the popular shopping rewards app, is going for the Android smartphone users. Using the free to download application, folks can earn real rewards for scanning consumer product barcodes (with no purchase necessary) and “checking in” to over a million U.S. retail locations.
Among the participating brands and stores are such majors as Belkin, Energizer, Seventh Generation, Tyson Foods and Kmart.
The Android app is launched on the heels of the iPhone application which has been downloaded by more than 200,000 users, half of which grabbed it in the last two weeks. Apparently, users have proven highly engaged, and are using CheckPoints almost three times a day, while scanning featured products in stores hundreds of thousands of times.
Commenting on the “Android launch,” CheckPoints’ cofounder and President Todd Dipaola said: “Android users are enthusiastic about finding new and unique uses for their phones, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the CheckPoints family.”
