SEATTLE, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockerz, a social commerce company with more than 19 million members worldwide, today announced that its Lockerz App for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The app gives Lockerz members more opportunities to be rewarded for what they love to do online by earning discounts on products from popular brands.
"Our users have been asking for a Lockerz App for iPhone and iPod touch for quite some time, and we're thrilled to deliver one to them," said Kathy Savitt, founder and chief executive officer of Lockerz. "Bringing the best possible Lockerz experience to users on these great devices is crucial as we work towards becoming the homepage for Generation Z."
The Lockerz App enables members to earn PTZ® (Points) for signing in, uploading photos and answering "Dailies" (one-question polls) on these devices. PTZ can then be used to earn discounts of up to 100 percent on popular brands. With photo sharing as a key component of the Lockerz experience, the app also gives users the ability to edit their photos with photo filters, which turn ordinary photos into artistic images using easy-to-use and fun tools.
Other planned features include further integration with Facebook and Twitter and the ability to make purchases in Lockerz SHOP and through iTunes®.
PTZ are the discount fuel of Lockerz – the ultimate rewards program for Generation Z. Lockerz members can earn PTZ in more than 10 ways, including answering "Dailies" (witty and provocative one-question polls), watching videos, listening to music, inviting friends, or just logging in. PTZ are then used to lower the prices of merchandise in the Lockerz SHOP. The more PTZ a member earns and decides to use, the larger the discount, which can be up to 100%.
The Lockerz App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
Based in Seattle, Lockerz' mission is to be the homepage for men and women ages 13 to 30, building a community of more than 19 million trendsetters and tastemakers who love to shop, play and connect on the Web. Lockerz rewards members for doing what they love online, offering major discounts on the coolest fashions, electronics, music and more. Members earn PTZ® (Points) by watching videos, listening to music and inviting friends. Lockerz PTZ are then used to lower the prices of merchandise at-will.
