If there’s one thing that’s always left in my wallet at the end of the year, it’s that $50 gift card from Aunt Dora that I forgot to spend and now I never will spend because it’s expired.
Silicon Valley based startup JunoWallet aims to solve that problem enabling to not only keep your gift cards digitally on your iphone or android, but they also give you gift cards or Juno credits for doing tasks like liking Facebook pages or downloading apps.
Brands are currently offering consumers discounts at nearby stores when checking in on location based apps like Foursquare and Gowalla, but JunoWallet’s offers consumers credits/gift cards for doing tasks upon checking in which you can spend at other retailers or give to your friends as a giftcard to spend at the retailer of their choice.
JunoWallet are to announce a round of VC funding at the end of January and also a deal with one of the US’s biggest grocery stores converging the offline/online giftcard market.
