New mobile app, ‘Hundred’ has launched its platform allowing users to discover and access personalised offers based on their preferences. Consolidating the current market and offering easier access to offers for end consumers. “With the pandemic’s impact on the spending power and attitude of consumers, it’s now more important than ever to find discounts and offers across all industries. Yet, with thousands of offers scattered across platforms, and brands, it’s easy for consumers to miss out on the best deals, and difficult for merchants to reach their customers,” explained the company.
“Hundred, the new free-to-use mobile app, solves this dilemma allowing users to view and access different discounts and offers, personalised based on their bank cards and preferences. Providing a single platform for banks and merchants alike to market their products and services, but with the ease of use for consumers to find them,” the company said.
The user-friendly interface has a simple two-step sign up, and allows users to search by industry, by location, as well as in a personalised view tailored to preferences relevant to them. The app can display seasonal offers, cashback deals and advertise high discounts, or time-sensitive offers knowing that it will reach the desired consumer. This allows banks and merchants to increase reach and potential spend from new customers, whilst users of the app get excellent deals at their fingertips in one centralised place.
“The app’s launch comes at a perfect time when consumer income has been hit by the economic downturn. It helps users to optimise spending to take advantage of tactical offers they otherwise might not have been aware of. For example, by just adding your specific bank cards without any card numbers in the personalisation set up of the app, users can check offers they are eligible for, which, otherwise they might have missed. They can also see local discounts and offers based on distance and location. In addition to helping customers, this platform will help stimulate and boost local economies, as well as drive loyalty to local stores,” the company said.
Speaking about the launch, Parag Gathani, Founder & CEO at Hundred said, “The last year has been challenging for everyone. More than the anxiety caused by the pandemic, managing our finances has been bigger stress and challenge for most of us. With so much uncertainty around us, saving money can help us feel a little less anxious in times like these. We launched Hundred with the objective to help users save money by maximizing the use of offers available to them through their digital devices, wherever they are, as every penny counts, and by improving awareness and access to these offers at users’ fingertips, we are increasing their spending power. We forecast that the average user can save anything from AED 1,000 to AED 50,000 a year, or even more, depending on their purchasing power, by availing of these offers smartly. We are excited at the overall impact we will have on users’ spending and saving habits by informing them of these offers which are relevant to them, at the time they need them, and everyone will benefit from this solution.”
Currently, some of the top bank cards that offer good cashback on online purchases are Standard Chartered Platinum X Credit Card and Dubai First Cashback Credit Card Cards. For best value on Restaurants, customers should consider, ADIB Edge Credit Card, Mashreq Cashback Credit Card, and Emirates NBD U by Emaar Credit Card. FAB and CBD provide some of the best Credit Cards for cashback on supermarkets. Customers can see and compare detailed features and merchant offers on these cards on Hundred Platform and also apply from there.
Some of the other attractive offers that customers can compare on the app include 20% discount on F&B at Subway; 20% off at Rixos premium Saadiyat Island; 30% discount on selected services at Hollywood Smile Medical Center; 50% discount on F&B at Chapters, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel; and Up to 50% discount on selected services at VLCC and much more.
The app is available for download from the App Store and Google Play Store and simply requires you to verify your mobile number and personal details to get started. Currently with around 20,000 offers from over 12,000 outlets covering over 200 bank cards, since launching this year, Hundred is already increasing user’s spending power with easy access to the offers they need.
