Buy your groceries at any local supermarket and save! We provide the details on South Africa’s first couponing app.
Digitalised couponing is officially a thing in South Africa thanks to SnapnSave’s CEO Mark Bradshaw and his team. Couponing has become a very Americanized form of shopper savings. Millions of people across America spend their time collecting paper coupons in order to save them megabucks. These coupons normally save consumers lots of money on everyday essential food items.

How It All Started

Just 18 months ago, SnapnSave’s CEO Mark Bradshaw, found himself in the US among a couponing underworld. He was so caught up in it that he brought the couponing trend back across the seas and recreated the first ever South African digitalised app, otherwise known as SnapnSave. In just a year and a half, SnapnSave’s profile has grown with over 200 000 app downloads. Not only that, but SnapnSave has paid out a whopping R3 million to its Snappers.

What Is It?

According to SnapnSave’s Marketing Manager, Roger Bezuindenhout, SnapnSave is a digital couponing app that aims to save the consumer money and helps create awareness around local brands. There are currently over 300 local brands that have discount coupons available on the app. Bezuidenhout mentions that the company is planning on growing their brand partnerships.
“We are in talks with some other brands and aim to provide people with different deals other than food coupons”, explains Bezuidenhout.
