FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--South Florida-based Play2Shop today introduced its premiere free web application, www.play2shop.com, where members can play games, earn points, get free stuff and cash back.
“And many of our tournaments and rewards are enhanced by brand loyalty to our shopping partners.”
Turning Play Time into Pay Time:
“Play2Shop is radically enhancing the social gaming experience first pioneered by Zynga and others,” proclaims Play2Shop CEO, John Benton. “Unlike ‘virtual cows’ and ‘fake currency’, Play2Shop rewards can be exchanged for real-world goods.”
Visitors to Play2Shop sign up for a free account and start playing games and earning points immediately. The more they play, the more points they earn including skill-based bonuses. Points can be used to purchase a variety of real goods in the Play2Shop Rewards Showroom. They can also be used as the entry fee to tournaments for even bigger rewards, or used to bid on auction items, such as Kindle Fires, iPads and gift cards to top online merchants.
Play2Shop includes casual games playable on laptops, desktops, tablets, and mobile devices, and the company is working with numerous game developers to continuously enhance the Play2Shop gaming experience. More so, the company has created an API (Application Programming Interface) for easy integration of games ranging from native mobile games, Adobe Flash-based games and HTML5 games to advanced games typically available from Zynga and 3D-provider Unity Games.
The Evolution of Cash Back:
Like Ebates, Play2Shop lets its members earn cash back from online shopping, typically between 2-10% but can range up to 70% from some merchants. Unlike Ebates, however, Play2Shop also rewards members with 10 Play2Shop Reward Points for every dollar spent, which can be redeemed for things like Kindles, iPads or a host of other valuable rewards. And, also unlike Ebates, Play2Shop offers a VIP option that increases cash-back and other benefits by up to 50%.
“Play2Shop members get rewarded for being active on the site, for inviting friends, for sharing links, and so much more,” continues CEO Benton. “And many of our tournaments and rewards are enhanced by brand loyalty to our shopping partners.”
Play2Shop incorporates real-time demographic matching to provide its members with the best gaming experience, shopping options, and targeted rewards. Members can adjust settings with simple ‘sliders’ to fine tune their overall experience and preferences.
The company is also providing custom tournaments and rewards for the most loyal members, local charities, and favorite causes. An optional VIP program provides members with 50% more points on every game played, access to exclusive tournaments and rewards, and up to 50% more cash-back on purchases.
Play2Shop membership is free. Tournament prizes are provided free excluding shipping costs, if any. Non-tournament rewards and auctions additionally carry a $2 administration fee. VIP membership is available for $19.95 per month.
Unified Technology Platform:
Play2Shop is powered by a proprietary platform that combines every aspect of the product into a single unified solution. The platform was developed internally by the company in conjunction with CrunchFire Technologies, and includes advanced monitoring, fraud detection and prevention, game integration, campaign management, automated fulfillment, user and administration consoles, and more.
The platform is designed for performance, reliability, security, and scalability, and is currently hosted with proprietary components on optimized instances of the Cloud.
Play2Shop is more than a reward and gaming site, it is a fun, friendly community where you can play games, earn points, and turn those points into free stuff! Play2Shop has developed an extensive affiliate shopping program where you earn cash back at over 1,000 retail partners plus earn an additional 10 Play2Shop points for every dollar spent. Get more for you time and dollars at Play2Shop. Founded in 2012, Play2Shop was created by Merchant Marketing Concepts, Inc. The company was funded by loyal friends and family and CrunchFire Ventures.
