UK based Internet firm @YumGo allows keen shoppers to simply tweet brand names to access a wide range of discount codes.
The recent economic slump has led to people more closely watching their pennies, and indeed, hard-pressed Britons have adopted a range of strategies to ensure that they remain within their means. One such strategy, for example, could be to simply cut back on everything, whilst another could be to ‘ring fence’ one area of spending whilst reducing another. Increasing numbers of savvy online shoppers, however, are discovering a third way to effectively save money: online discount codes.
Discount vouchers, much like those that used to come in newspapers, can be found right across the Internet, including from a broad range of household name brands. Used regularly, they can certainly help buyers to save a substantial amount of money, and it is now even easier to access the widest range of such discount codes thanks to the launch of a new tweet-2-discount application by @YumGo.
Voucher codes from the biggest brands
@YumGo offers a wide range of promotional codes from the best known brands. These include from top food retailers such as Pizza Express, Pizza Hut, Zizzi and Strada and supermarkets such as Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda, as well as electronic stores such as Currys, Comet, PC World and game.com and sports retailers Nike, Reebok and Sunglasses. Shoppers can gain access to these codes within 60 seconds simply by tweeting the relevant brand name to the @YumGo Twitter account. @YumGo also brings local codes first to shoppers who enable their location using Twitter’s location based service.
An @YumGo spokesperson stated: “We couldn’t be more proud to offer our unique instant tweet-2-discount service. There is no need for tweeters to worry about spam as they are not required to follow us, and nor is there any fee or app to download. Instead, all you get from us is an instant discount, 24/7, if you tweet a brand name to us.”
@YumGo is not a partner of Twitter, instead simply building its application using Twitter’s open-source technology. In addition to its Twitter page and main website at www.atyumgo.co.uk, @YumGo is also on Facebook, making it even more accessible to the escalating numbers of people who are using the World Wide Web (WWW) to find discount codes.
