Your Mom’s Coupons are a Thing of the Past
By Stewart Fussell
The doors open as you hear voices call out to you “Welcome to Moe’s!” Little do these burrito masters know that you hold the power of the Stealz app in your hand. This app is available in the iTunes store and the Google Play store for free, and it takes seconds to download.
The opening screen is a list of Stealz app restaurants in your area. A few of these include Moe’s Southwest Grill, Cold Stone Creamery, Mellow Mushroom, East Coast Wings and Chicos. When you visit these places with your Stealz app, you can receive freebies on your first visit and then rack up points to continue getting discounts and special offers.
For example, when you use Stealz for the first time at Moe’s, you automatically get a free cup of queso, while at Mellow Mushroom you can get a free cookie. Then you can earn points to build your way up to other freebies by simply visiting the restaurants. You can earn one point by using a restaurant's QR code to “check in.” You can also share a picture on social media websites with @GetStealz and hashtags to earn four points, and lastly you can follow GetStealz and the restaurants on Twitter for five points. At Moe’s the most points you can earn is 30, which will get you a free main menu item. Mellow Mushroom offers a t-shirt for 50 points and a pizza party for 200.
The Stealz app allows customers to take advantage of exclusive deals and creates additional revenue for businesses. Greenville currently does not have an overwhelming amount of businesses using this app, but its popularity is definitely on the rise. This app is very user friendly and self explanatory. You can easily view the amount of points you need to reach certain rewards at different restaurants. When you visit these places you simply hit the earn button and it will give you the option to check in, share a photo or follow on Twitter. Once you choose one of these, a QR scanner will pop up. Then all you have to do is scan the QR code at the restaurant and you’re on your way to free queso and t-shirts! This free app is a money saver and not difficult to use. It’s almost as easy as eating a whole cup of queso by yourself.
