AT&T Launches ShopAlerts

AT&T Launches ShopAlerts Deals Program; Will You Use It?

All aboard! Joining the truckload of other location-based deal programs, AT&T just announced one of its own. Called ShopAlerts, this program is currently available in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, and texts you with special deals and offers when you're near a participating retail location. While there is no cost to join, normal text message fees do apply.

The difference between the new ShopAlerts service and other similar services, like Facebook Deals, is that it doesn't require the user to check in or perform any other action in order to get the deal. Just being in the vicinity of a participating location or retailer is enough to receive the alert. Messages vary, and may be notifications for sales, special events, new products, or special offers. And, thankfully, the service is limited to just four notifications per week, so there's no worry about becoming inundated with invitations (or messaging fees).

Find out who's already on board with ShopAlerts (and if there's any news on expansion) when you read more.

Launch partners include JetBlue, Kmart, HP, and more, with additional providers being added soon. No word yet on when or if AT&T expects to extend the service beyond the initial list of cities, but if other location-based services are any indication, it could go nationwide fast!

I voted no! But to be fair, I live in Australia and am not the target market. :)
