WHAT DO I GET?
LevelUp is generously offering a free $10 credit to anyone who signs up for an account using the promo code ‘palateprincess’. What’s LevelUp, you ask? Remember, they’re the innovative company that’s revolutionizing the way you pay for meals and services–you know the company I just raved about in a previous blog post?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Most of us spend an ungodly amount of time on our cell phones (right now I’m typing with one hand as I tweet with the other–multi-tasking at its finest), so LevelUp discovered a way to further integrate cutting-edge technology and our everyday experiences. With their free smartphone app–available for both iPhone and Android–users can sign up for a free account and link their personal credit card(s) and receive a unique QR (quick response) code to pay for their purchases at participating restaurants and service providers. It takes about 2 seconds to swipe the QR code on your smartphone screen and–BAM!–you’re done. (Sorry for channeling Emeril but, hey, this is exciting stuff!) As an added bonus, the app uses an incentive program that allows you to earn $5, $10, or $20 credit toward purchases from participating businesses whenever you pay with LevelUp–the more you spend, the more you earn.
IS IT SAFE?
Remember that time you went to Mexico for Spring break and your wallet was stolen at Señor Taco’s? Yeah, well that won’t happen here. LevelUp uses top-notch security to protect your information; the app even offers the option of setting a 4-digit PIN lock to deter unauthorized use. Think about it–paying with LevelUp is much safer than letting the 16-year old cashier with the spike through her bottom lip swipe your credit card.
OK I’M IN! NOW WHAT?
