I’m definitely no stranger to trying to track down the best deals and coupons. It’s a weekly habit that sometimes feels like a chore. What if there was a way to turn the tedious task of collecting coupons and deals into a game?
Savelings is an awesome free game that turns bargain hunting into a cool fun game.
It’s a unique combination of Pokémon Go and your favorite coupon app and lets you play for useful deals in your local area. Plus it encourages you to get out and explore!
Concept and Gameplay:
If you’re like me, you probably have the same amount of skepticism I did when I first heard of Savelings, by Savelings Inc. A game that can actually save you money and encourage you to get out and about seemed way too “out there”, and I’ve seen quite a few games in my time as a reviewer.
However, Savelings definitely delivers. Similar to Pokémon Go, the game uses your actual location to display eggs on the screen. You need to travel within range of an egg to tap on it, which starts a mini game.
In order to unlock the coupon that’s inside you must carefully aim your slingshot and crack it. This took me a ton of tries and is definitely not easy. Once you hit the egg, you’re presented with a coupon that’s relevant for a business in your local area.
Savelings is a free game, but that doesn’t mean it skips out on cool features that make life a bit easier. For example, earned coupons are stored within the app so you can quickly access them when you’re ready to use them.
It’s tough to say exactly where Savelings sources its coupons and deals, but it looks like there are a multitude of ad networks that can easily sign up with the service. What this means for you is that you’re way more likely to find deals for a wide variety of businesses in your area.
On a side note, as a frequent player of Pokémon Go I did notice that eggs seem to pop up in similar areas to Pokémon. This might be a complete coincidence, but it’s something that I took notice to when reviewing the game.
Savelings is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. One of the really cool things about this game is that it is not supported with ads or in-app purchases.
Instead of having to spend money, Savelings is a unique opportunity for you to save money while getting out and exploring the neighborhood.
You’re way more likely to discover cool new businesses in your town simply because they are offering a really great deal on a product or service.
Savelings requires iOS 8.0 or newer and is compatible with iPhone and iPad.
