Freesky Discount Card, a new initiative by Purchasekaro

Vadodara (Gujarat) [India], Sept.15 (ANI-Newsvoir): Imagine being able to use one magic discount card at all places, be it online shopping, restaurants, phone recharge, mutlibrand retail shopping stores, or just to buy bread and butter from your local kirana stores.

Well, Purchasekaro, an ecommerce startup from Vadodara is bringing the idea into reality through its new discount card initiative 'Freesky'.

The Freesky card currently provides discounts to their customers on purchases at Local stores, discounts on all products/services on the Purchasekaro.com website, other online websites as well as cash voucher discounts on National Brands.

Unlike other coupon codes, The Freesky discount cards do not come with one time use and can be used unlimited times at affiliated local stores on any products or online websites by users. Users can get flat 10% OFF on gift vouchers of more than 70 retail brands (Big Bazzar, Baskin Robins, Bata, Apollo Pharmacy, BookMyShow just to name a few).

"While we observed the trend that discounts in form of coupon codes is implemented by nearly all ecommerce companies, only a few physical multi brand retail stores offer discounts and that too in cash back model. Our goal through Freesky discount card is to bring the concept of organised discounts to offline market of daily essential commodities and FMCG products purchases as well as to integrate the online and offline shopping discounts through just one platform, thus providing more value for customers across products and service categories. The current range of products/services covered by Freesky covers nearly everything from online shopping merchandise, travel services to bread and butter at your local shops.", says Mr. Yax Sheth, CEO & Co-Founder of Purchasekaro.com & Freesky
