The App That Pays You Backā„¢ Rewards Users for Shopping in Over a Million Stores

VENICE, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- CheckPoints LLC debuts its shopping rewards app in the iPhone App Store today.  CheckPoints rewards consumers for "checking in" to stores and "checking out" featured products in over one million retail locations across America.  Shoppers can instantly redeem for gift cards, airline miles, electronic gadgets, or charitable donations with points that they earn in each store.

Shoppers can unlock exclusive content like coupons, games, and recipes each time they scan the UPC of a featured item – no purchase necessary.  Featured brands at launch include Belkin®, Energizer®, Seventh Generation®, Tyson Foods® and many others.

"Just walk into any store that has products – the electronics store, grocery store, or pharmacy – and earn rewards just for checking them out," said Mark DiPaola, CEO and cofounder of CheckPoints.  "CheckPoints is the first app to offer consumers rewards just for trying it."

All users will receive bonus rewards points for signing up before October 31.  

CheckPoints is free, and will launch in the Android Market later this fall.  For more information, visit www.CheckPoints.com, or follow @CheckPoints on Twitter.
