How can I become a Yowza!! merchant?
My business is web-based. Can I put coupons up on Yowza!!?
Because Yowza!! is a location-based service, all Yowza!! merchants must have a physical brick-and-mortar store for customers to be able to visit. Web-based businesses do not qualify.
I'm signed up, but I haven't received my sign in information yet.
Your invitation email has probably gotten stuck in a spam filter somewhere. Here are some handy whitelisting instructions that tell you how to allow email from Yowza!! Once you've done that, you can have your invitation re-sent.
How much does Yowza!! cost?
Saving money shouldn't cost you anything! Yowza!! is free of charge via the iTunes App Store.
I don't have an iPhone. Can I still use Yowza!!?
Certainly! Yowza!! is also available for the iPod Touch, so you can shop and jam to your favorites tunes at the same time!
But I want it on my Blackberry/Palm/Android/Windows Mobile phone!
While those are all fine devices, right now, we're focusing on Yowza!! for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Once we complete our iPhone rollout, we'll be looking at other platforms as well.
Is Yowza!! US-only?
For now, yes. But we plan on rolling Yowza!! out to other countries as soon as possible.
Why does Yowza!! get my location wrong or not at all?
Your iPhone or iPod Touch provides the location information that Yowza!! uses. If you're connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi, this location can often be wrong. If you're using an iPhone, turn off Wi-Fi and connect with the cell network. If you're using an iPod Touch, try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network. Public locations (like a Starkbucks, for example) work best.
Where do you get the coupons?
Unlike other services, we're not a "coupon aggregator." Instead, we work directly with merchants and retailers to bring you exclusive deals and offers only available through Yowza!! This ensures that when you use a Yowza!! mobile coupon, the retailer honors it.
Why don't you have deals from my favorite store?
We're working hard to team with major retailers as well as small local merchants, and we're adding more mobile deals and coupons daily, so your favorite store may be listed soon! The best thing to do is simply ask your local merchant to contact us, and we'll get them set up.
You can also request a store and we'll see what we can do to make it happen!
I tried to use a coupon, but the cashier wouldn't accept it. What do I do?
We work directly with merchants so this kind of thing won't happen. That said, new employees or cashiers who haven't been trained might not know about Yowza!! and might not accept the coupon. If this happens, please contact us and tell us the details.
Greg Grunberg? That guy from TV?
Cool, huh!? But yes, Greg is indeed one of the cofounders of Yowza!!
I've read all these, now what?
If you've gotten this far, you must be obsessed with mobile coupons just like us, and we love that! But if you have more questions, just let us know.
