CHICAGO, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, holiday shoppers will earn shares of stock in an upcoming IPO just by shopping. And they'll save money and earn cash back, too. All for free.
iConsumer.com is the crowdfunded coupon and cash back website and app designed to get America's 99% involved in owning stock. iConsumer is unique, rewarding customer loyalty by giving away $8M of its preferred stock to everyday consumers.
Free stock aside, iConsumer members are saving money buying this season's most popular gifts. "iConsumer helps smart shoppers be brilliant," says Robert Grosshandler, CEO and founder of iConsumer. "Put cash back in your pocket, great gifts under the tree and own a piece of the future – all for free."
Below is a sample of some of the 1,700+ stores consumers will save at through iConsumer this season:
- For the Techie: The Sharper Image, Best Buy, The Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, Game Stop
- For the Foodie: Crate & Barrel, Le Creuset, Sur la Table, Stonewall Kitchen, World Kitchen
- For the Fashionista: Nordstrom, Madewell, NARS, Neiman Marcus, Ann Taylor
- For the Athlete: Bowflex, Easton, Footlocker, Merrell, REI
iConsumer shoppers earn ownership every time they buy something from one of 1,700 partnering stores. And when they buy something, they make iConsumer stronger, more valuable. "I'm excited that we can begin to bridge the income inequality gap through holiday shopping," continued Grosshandler. "People who never thought they could be investors, who never thought they'd own stock in a startup, are getting the chance to own and learn without risking cash."
