Krowd is a unique company that partners with local businesses to bring value in the form of increased savings - to your life. Krowd's mission is to cut down your cost of living by granting access to discounts and promotions via its mobile app and barcode system.
The Krowd system interacts through three main actions:
Imagine going out for dinner, scanning a barcode while you wait for your meal and instantly getting $50 off your hotel for the weekend, half-off your lift tickets at the ski hill, or even a discount oil change before your next road trip? It’s that easy as that when you download the Krowd app and get instant savings on the things you really want in life.
The value in the Krowd partnership is beyond anything else currently on the market. This is a one for one transaction – unlike other discount, loyalty or points systems, where you usually have to spend thousands and collect points over time to see any real value. Krowd is instantaneous. A Krowd code can be collected at one company, and used minutes later for savings at another partner company. The distribution of Krowd codes for our partner companies adds real value they can pass along to their consumers, and this style of partnership is completely free.
Partner companies agree to provide a discount or special access, which Krowd advertises to its users. For a Krowd user to gain access to these discounts, they scan a specific Krowd barcode that will be displayed to them by the partner company via the app. When the user scans this barcode, a general use Krowd code (green code) will be subtracted from their profile. The scanning of the barcode must be witnessed by an employee of the company granting the offer. They will then honor the savings or discount offered. If, for some reason, the process of redeeming a code is interrupted and not witnessed properly by an employee, a user can access their scan history in the options page to provide proof of the scan date and time.
Loyalty program restricted codes can be moved out to general use, but a general use code can never be brought into a restricted category.
Within the Krowd system, some partner companies may choose to create their own unique loyalty programs. This is done through a second type of restricted code (red Krowd codes) For example, a ski resort can have a loyalty program with Krowd by making their own specific offer – like if you scan 10 barcodes from your purchased lift tickets in one season, the resort will grant you $300 off a season pass for the next one.
When you scan a barcode from a company offering a specific in-house offer, the banked code goes directly to that restricted offer in your profile. You then have the choice to leave the collected Krowd code in the offer (to save towards the 10 needed), or to pull that code out of the offer and place it in general use – to be used on any other partner company offer. Restricted codes can be moved out to general use, but a general use code can never be brought into a restricted category.
