Plan featured $35 per month unlimited talk, text and web plus local discount and coupons
LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. — (June 15, 2010) Wisconsin-based AirFire Mobile today launched the first-of-its- kind, no-contract coupon phone that can pay for itself in local mobile marketing deals, discounts and coupon savings.
The $35 per month coupon phone, featuring unlimited talk, text and web service, quickly and easily connects customers with one-click mobile coupon access to discounts at local small businesses.
All AirFire Mobile wireless phone models come equipped with a one button hot-key or on-screen widget allowing consumers to select categories of coupons they can use on the go. New deals and discounts are directed to consumers via text message.
With more than 90% of consumers reading their incoming text messages, the AirFire Mobile coupon phone targets consumers in their preferred medium.
“There’s no clipping coupons or remembering to bring them to the store,” says Abraham S. Levine, Chief Operating Officer of AirFire Mobile. “Just show the coupon displayed on your phone when you’re ready to buy.”
In addition, AirFire Mobile’s new coupon phone gives local small businesses, who may not otherwise advertise online, a new way to reach customers inexpensively.
“This is a key way for hometown, tier 3 mobile carriers to compete,” said Jeff Hutkoff, Director of Marketing. “You might say the 2G carriers are striking back. We’re giving consumers a value-priced product that may literally pay for itself in coupons for local products and services that are relevant to our opted-in subscribers. And we’re helping local small businesses navigate the complex world of mobile marketing in the process.”
AirFire Mobile, a service of Airadigm Communications, Inc., is a Wisconsin wireless carrier providing service since 1996. AirFire Mobile was the first Wisconsin carrier to launch both prepaid and advanced pay wireless service in Wisconsin.
