However, even though we are big fans of pulling out our 50% off coupons or diligently sending in our rebate forms, the issue that we run into the most is a common one: not having our discounts or coupons with us when we actually need them.
Oh, shoot! Had I known we were going to be by a (store name), then I would have checked for a coupon before we left!
Instead, how convenient would it be if you could be walking down the street past a store and receive a text message offering a discount at that store right then and there? Sound far-fetched? It's not and it exists right now with AT&T Alerts.
An innovative, optional new service from AT&T that proactively delivers offers straight to wireless customers' phones, AT&T Alerts are location-based text messages that provide savings on what you want, when you need it.
Quite simply, these opt-in alerts allow AT&T customers nationwide to save money with relevant offers from nearby retailers on their mobile phones. All that is required is to sign up for AT&T Alerts at http://alerts.att.com/coffee and you'll begin receiving discounts, rewards and offers via text message when you are near one of the participating retailers and brands.
AT&T Alerts' growing list of participating retailers and brands now includes: Apple Vacations, Banana Republic, Chuck E. Cheese's, Discover, Duracell, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Gap, Haggar, InterContinental Hotels Group, JCPenney, Kiehl's, Meguiar's, Motorola, Last Call by Neiman Marcus, PayAnywhere, PayPal, Qdoba and Zales.
What's the catch, right?
There isn't one! Text messages to and from AT&T Alerts are FREE for AT&T customers and you have the ability to customize your offer preferences and settings to receive the offers most relevant to you.
As an added bonus, when you sign up and confirm your registration now, you'll also receive a $5 Starbucks Card eGift (while supplies last). So not only will you be set to start receiving discounts on an ongoing basis when and where you need them, but you'll be able to celebrate with your favorite brewed drink... for free!
