New Shooger Mobile Network Uses the Power of the Crowd to Put Sweet Deals in the Palm of Your Hand

Everyone loves a great deal, but sometimes the best offers are well-kept secrets - you have to know someone on the inside in order to get the scoop. With the new Shooger mobile app launched today, anyone can be an “insider” with free, instant access to the most vibrant network of deal hunters in the world.

Unlike group-buying deal sites that operate on tipping point models and advertiser-backed promotions, Shooger gives mobile and web users the ability to find and share sweet deals instantly with the entire Shooger community. The app is free to download and there’s nothing to buy in advance to access Shooger deals. Shooger is exclusively designed for the mobile experience, featuring hyper local deals, limited-time-only discounts, special promotions you must know to ask for, product recommendations and tips, like which salesperson to talk to at the store.

“The best deals have always been the ones you hear about from your friends.  Shooger is like having a whole bunch of deal finding friends sharing their tips with you” said Donick Cary, Executive Producer of Shooger and Emmy winning writer from The Late Show with David Letterman andThe Simpsons." “You can follow real people and their real deals – It’s a great big mobile reality show that saves you money.

Shooger is building a highly engaged and active user base that scouts for great deals and shares them with the network. This unique community works together to help save time and money and get the inside information on the best offers all across the country. Shooger’s sweet deals are constantly updated, so there are always fresh deals to be found in your neighborhood. A simple search lets you browse deals by category or based on your location.

“Some of the best deals around never see the light of day - they’re not advertised in the newspaper or showcased on a store sign. You have to know who to ask,” said Milen Mishkovsky, Shooger’s CIO. “With Shooger on your smartphone, you’ve got instant access to exclusive information, no matter where you are.”

The savviest Shooger deal-finders can become Shooger Experts, posting deals and creating their own channel around specific categories of interest or in specific geographic locations. For example, a nutrition guru might become the Shooger Expert on sales of organic food products. Or, the fashionista could become the local Shooger Expert sharing the best clothing and accessory deals in her neighborhood. Shooger Experts are tastemakers and community leaders, helping to curate the vast amount of deals generated by Shooger users.
“There’s no doubt that we are in the middle of a consumer revolution—the way people shop and make purchase decisions has changed dramatically with the ability to tap into the community for resources and referrals,” said Alex Stancioff, CEO of Shooger.

Shooger’s latest version is available now on the iPhone, with Android and BlackBerry versions coming. To download Shooger now and tap into the sweet life, search for Shooger in the Apple App Store or visit
