FreeCharge started in Aug 2010 with a product that rewarded users for each transaction. Post each recharge, paper coupons arrived via snail mail at our users’ doorstep. We also enabled real world sharing of such small joys by always sending a few extra ones. We partnered with some of the most iconic brands like McDonalds, PVR, Dominos, etc. in India to get the best, exclusive coupons for our users. This generated viral growth and more importantly, loyal users who helped us become a household brand name.
Over the years, our coupons evolved dramatically. We moved the entire coupon distribution process online. We added newer categories of coupons such as apparel, ecommerce, spas and travel with hundreds of merchant partners. We collaborated with banks to give out exclusive coupons via ATMs. We also experimented with multiple visual paradigms on all our platforms to make users feel special while receiving these premium coupons.
Now, we have reached the next stage of evolution for coupons. In this release of all our apps, you will see that the coupon experience is no longer available while performing a recharge or paying a bill. We miss it as much as you do too! We are working very hard on making this even more magical for you, read further down for all the scoop. Meanwhile, not to worry, we shall send you our best coupons within the recharge invoice email. Just click on the link in the email to claim these coupons.
Very soon, we shall open up the doors of FreeCharge Rewards for you. It is a platform that reinvents how loyalty programs are perceived across the globe. Users shall be rewarded for making transactions on the entire FreeCharge + Snapdeal ecosystem and all merchants that accept FreeCharge as a payment instrument. Till then, stay tuned!
p.s. Your coupons are in your email
