WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Aug. 11, 2016) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp") (OTCQX:SNIPF)(TSX VENTURE:SPN), an international provider of marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions listed on the OTCQX and the TSX Venture Exchange, is pleased to announce that it has signed a $US245,000+ deal and launched the first of two programs for one of the world's leading makers of paper goods. The company, a repeat Snipp client, is a household name in tissue, pulp, paper, packaging and building products, with top brands in multiple consumer categories.

The deal is for two programs, the first of which just launched at the beginning of August. This promotion is being powered by the SnippCheck receipt processing engine, and provides a $5 Visa reward for qualifying purchases greater than $25 at any participating retailer. Shoppers simply snap a picture of their qualifying receipt and submit the image via SMS, e-mail or website upload.

"This marks the second deal we've signed with this Fortune 500 client, a testament to the fact that our mobile-first shopper marketing solutions are producing clear, tangible results. With each repeat customer, we can point to a growing sense of confidence in our work among an expanding list of elite global manufacturers. They are quickly discovering that consumers appreciate the speed and convenience of digital rebate offers (like this one) over traditional mail in rebates. This is another example of a brand realizing the value of our SnippRebates solution, which instantly provides previously unavailable information about customers and greatly facilitates post-purchase re-targeting," said David Hargreaves, Chief Client Officer at Snipp.
