using that scoutmob.

since i posted about scoutmoba few weeks ago*, i thought i would just take a moment to follow up on my experiences with the service.

i have used it twice, both times for 50% of deals. the first time i used it was the day after scoutmob had launched and i used it at no mad cantina and while the server was a bit confused when i showed him my phone, he returned with the manager who promptly gave me 50% off the check.

by the time i used scoutmob a week later for brunch at murphy’s the servers were pretty well prepared and the table next to me was actually using a scoutmob coupon too (one note from murphy’s – the scoutmob iphone app requires you to be near the location to get the coupon and i couldn’t get a gps connection inside so it wouldn’t let me pull up the coupon. suggest pulling up the coupon before heading into a venue.)

both of those establishments were picked, btw, because i had a scoutmob coupon.

there are a ton of other scoutmob coupons sitting on my phone that i am dying to use too as soon as the opportunity presents itself.

so call me a fan. you should get on board atlanta, and if you have an iphone get the app. it’s a pretty cool way to manage the coupons.

    My brother is a server at Murphy’s and told me last week that the response to ScoutMob has been fantastic. A ton of new customers and some repeat visitors who made an extra trip b/c of the coupon.

    we def. picked murphy’s over other establishments because of scoutmob. neither of us could remember the last time we were in murphy’s for brunch either, being southsiders.

    I’ve used my Scoutmob coupon at Pizzeria Venti so far, and had friends that used theirs at Rosebud, the Albert, and No Mas Cantina. I don’t have an iPhone, so I just have a bunch of coupons saved as text messages from the site.

    based on your tweets karsh, i suspect you are using a scoutmob coupon at the shed later?

    The coupon for the Shed is only good for regular menu items, not for the nightly specials or brunch.

    […] if you purchase online. But, if you’re a member of Scoutmob (which we’ve touted here before), you already know that today’s deal was 1/2 off a one-day admission to the show. Whether […]
