Bolingbrook, IL, May 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Cell phones have been a large and untapped medium in the hands of almost every student on campus. Mobile phones have really changed our lives with amazing features like Bluetooth, megapixel cameras, MMS, text messaging and MP3 players. Now, we can use the same features we are used to to help us save time and money on things we buy or services we need. Imagine getting a mobile coupon via text message from your favorite eating joint for a $2 saving on your $4.99 meal without clipping paper.
Many students are really savy at locating deals online. From searching comparism websites like shopping.com to deal and coupon code websites. Some are also comfortable going from one local store to another with the hope of saving. But searching for deals can be a daunting task for many who spend countless hours searching for a specific item. "Even though I consider myself a bargain shopper, when I am looking to purchase an item I really need, I find it difficult to find a deal online specific to my item," said Dr Ayeni, founder of Text2store.com. "I later discovered that many local businesses also offer deals that only frequenters know about. So what we have done with Text2store.com is to bring the best deals and valuable coupons from both worlds together."
Text2Store.com saves students time and money by enabling them to be alerted to the special offers and coupons for many items and services they request information for. That information is delivered right in the palm of their hand, free of charge.
"Sixty-three percent of 18-27 year olds cell phone owners are involved in active texting and since the middle of 2005 over 5 billion text messages are sent in the U.S per month," said Dr Ayeni, a former Adjunct Professor at Columbia College. "No more hours of online research, no store to store searching for the best deal, no waiting for seasonal sales. No spam or intrusion. Text2Store is totally private and secure and members are in control of all message deliveries"
Students can sign up online at www.text2store.com. Agreements with several retail companies are near completion. “Our user controlled technologies gives consumers full control of our application. Users control when they get deals from retailers (day of the week or time) and how they receive a deal (text message or e-mail) ”, said Dr. Ayeni, founder and CEO of Text2Store. “Our goal is simple, connecting local businesses to on-the-go consumers to get special offers or coupons on whatever they are looking to purchase”, Ayeni added.
