What is a discount tracker app?

A discount tracker app is a web or mobile application that allows users to compare prices and check in-store availability for products from different online retailers. Users can typically view product details, customer reviews, and price history along with current pricing information. They can also search for specific products or browse the most popular products at each retailer. Some discount tracker apps also feature a barcode scanner that allows users to quickly scan their purchases at checkout to automatically add them to their shopping list and track price changes over time.

Most discount tracker apps are related to other shopping apps, such as comparison shopping apps, price-comparison apps, and online store builder apps. Popular examples of discount tracking applications include Ibotta and Checkout51.

How to successfully grow your discount tracker application

Discount tracker apps can use different strategies to grow their user bases. One strategy is to incentivize users with a referral program that provides rewards for users who invite friends to sign up. Another way is to create partnerships with companies in order to obtain exclusive discounts on products and services. In order to compete, discount tracking apps must offer something unique or novel that stands out from the competition, such as an attractive design or a strong brand.

Risks and challenges of building a discount tracker application

A discount tracker app faces risks related to the handling of sensitive user financial information and personal data, as well as the potential for user dissatisfaction when purchases are not honored. It is recommended that a discount tracker app store all financial data in an encrypted format, delete all such data upon account cancellation, and provide round-the-clock customer support.
