Scoutmob: An App That Saves You Money
Inevitably, anyone who moves to San Francisco becomes a social media expert. When I first moved to the city, I was a proud owner of a non-smart flip phone and foursquare still meant a game at recess. However, in less than two years I became an active contributor to all things media; apps such as Groupon and LivingSocial were the first I downloaded.
$15 for pub fare at a bar I had never heard of…Sure! I thought. I’m new and the Tenderloin sounds like a trendy place. $25 for three pedicures…Great deal! But where in the heck is Sunnyside?
My wallet has been fooled by so many coupons I have lost count. So, however good $450 sounds for a six-hour Napa excursion for me and nine of my closest friends, I began to ignore social media “deals.” That is, until I discovered Scoutmob.
Like the video says, “Scoutmob is like being friends with that dude who always knows where to go and always has the hook up wherever he takes you.” The clincher? You don’t have to purchase anything in advance. The app offers recommendations for places to eat/drink/play nearby and all deals are free.
It is apparent that the Scoutmob team is just as curious as Urban Native. They support local business and believe the right thing to do is offer great deals on stuff people in the community already love. To all those who own wallets damaged by social media coupons, download Scoutmob.
