Local is definitely lekker – especially with the launch of SA’s MySidekick app. This nifty little app is set to change your shopping habits in a way that will leave you laughing all the way to the bank.
What’s the deal with MySidekick
Imagine getting specials sent to your phone as soon as you enter a mall. Introducing MySidekick, the app that does just that. It aims to save users time and money by showing them specials as they shop. The app covers a range of retailers such as Woolworths, Checkers and Dischem. In fact, there is a host of speciality services and stores covered too. This includes optometry, home décor and technology.
Personalise it to meet your needs
“The user can personalise the app so that they only see specials of product categories they are interested in, and this can easily be changed or updated by the user. We then have proprietary algorithms that make sure there is a good variety of specials on display,” said MySidekick CEO Leonard Brewer.
Users receive notifications of specials for them as they arrive at the mall. So you can plan your shopping trip better. In addition, the app is smart enough to detect when you’re simply driving past the mall.
Getting the app is easy
The app is available free of charge at the Google PlayStore. Simply download to your device and register.
