Plink, an online-to-offline rewards program that motivates members to make offline purchases, has announced the launch of the Plink mobile app on Apple’s iOS platform. The Plink mobile app can be downloaded for free at the iTunes App Store (http://bit.ly/ZzUDUs) beginning immediately.
Upon download, current Plink members will be able to manage and track their account on-the-go and non-Plink members will be able to create an account, then link the credit or debit card of their choice and begin earning rewards by purchasing offline at more than 50,000 restaurant, retailer and travel provider locations nationwide.
“Increasingly, the traditional website isn’t the only way consumers want to access and engage,” said Peter Vogel, co-founder and CEO of Plink. “We believe mobile is integral to our long-term strategy and will likely become the primary way our more than 500,000 members interact with Plink in the coming years.”
