Snipe is neither an online shopping app nor like any other shopping app out there today. It can help people quickly find and collect deals they like—all in a gamified interface. “It’s like Tinder, but instead of matching people with each other, we match customers with bargains,” says Robert Suyom, Jr., one of Snipe’s creators. “Sale posters are everywhere, but we want to know what specific products are on sale. Snipe makes information available right when and where customers need it.”
The app was launched on August 11, 2015 and can be downloaded for free on both the App Store and the Play Store. A user can see deals using Snipe in the leading malls which includes Alabang Town Center, SM Mall of Asia, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Power Plant Mall, SM Aura, Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall, EDSA Shangri-La Plaza, and SM North EDSA.
With Snipe, you will be shopping in a different level. This app brings delight and surprise to the fore of shopping. Snipe distills the feeling of stumbling upon that perfect dress or pair of shoes and makes it easier for people to have exciting encounters like this again and again.
To help users discover deals, Snipe detects which mall the user is in and displays the deals available there, one-by-one in random order, on a digital coupon roll. The user can narrow down his search with a filter of bargain categories. Sifting through apparel, shoes, bags, accessories, sports gear, health and beauty, gadgets, home and appliances, as well as food and services.
Snipe displays deals only when the user is in a mall and during mall operating hours. The randomly ordered coupons make users feel lucky when they see a deal they like, and the coupon-roll interface itself adds a tactile and visually quirky user experience. To help users save time and money, Snipe lets them swipe through bargains that would've taken users hours to sift through as well as take advantage of the promos featured in the app.
A user can redeem a coupon by going to the wallet, tapping on the desired coupon, and showing the generated redemption code to the store’s cashier. After redemption, a user can finally purchase the bargain. Note that no purchase occurs in Snipe—customers still pay for the product in the store.
