BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2015) - Snipp Interactive Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SPN) ("Snipp"), an international provider of marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, has developed a unique new "data rewards" incentive product in conjunction with one of the four largest multinational telecommunications corporations in America.

Data Rewards are a brand new type of incentive program developed exclusively by Snipp on its industry-leading SnippRewards platform. As the name suggests, with Snipp Data Rewards, consumers receive free data packages they can apply towards their cellphone plans. Clients can use the incentives in conjunction with Snipp's SnippCheck receipt processing solution or as standalones in programs.

This program with the telecommunications company was the first deployment of Snipp Data Rewards. Focusing on encouraging online-bill payments, authenticated subscribers were rewarded with points every time they paid their bills online. Points could then be exchanged for up to 1GB of data, which were automatically added to their accounts and remained valid for a full bill cycle.

According to Snipp CEO, Atul Sabharwal, "Data is a unique incentive with a high perception of value associated with it, particularly in this increasingly mobile-centric world of ours. Snipp is the only company that the ability to offer Free Data as an incentive for promotion programs. This is a cutting edge solution we developed for our client, but which can be easily reused for multiple further promotions with their permission."
