New voucher app could save Kiwis thousands

New voucher app could save Kiwis thousands

New Zealanders are able to save up to $10,000 in entertainment and services, thanks to a just-launched voucher app from loyalty programme provider, Goody.

The free app allows members to download hundreds of deals, across entertainment, dining, accommodation, pharmacy and beauty.

Goody first launched in 2014 with a loyalty programme, where members could earn points to redeem for rewards at participating retailers.

Goody founder Gorran Marusich says, “expanding the app to include digital vouchers means Kiwis can now also save money while visiting the retailers they love”.

For example, members can get 25% off the total bill, up to $40 value, at The Culpeper. Other participating retailers include Kelly Tarlton’s and STA Travel.

“Around 500 deals are already on offer across 350 businesses, with more deals getting added daily”, Mr Marusich says.

The current total value of the deals loaded on the app is at $10,000.

“It’s also easy for members to keep track of just how much they are saving, by checking the app’s estimated savings tracker.”

Goody currently has 550,000 members, with membership growing by about 3500 per week.

“At this rate, we’re on track to reach our target of one million members within the next year, something our small team of seven is really proud of.”

Another key benefit of the new app is that members can throw away their physical loyalty cards that are cluttering their wallets. The new Goody app also has a feature where members can “scan in” loyalty cards that use barcodes, so all cards are stored within the Goody app.

Local businesses also benefit from the new app, as they have the platform to drive new business by offering attractive discounts, says Mr Marusich.

Goody is free for all members and at a small charge for merchants. The app is available in the app store on both IOS and Android devices – search: Goody Card.
