There are countless apps promising that they will help users uncover deals, but they seem to require more work than they are worth. How many deals have you really unlocked on FourSquare? Chances are that you have unlocked a handful of deals over the course of the entire year. Scratch Hard promises to change all that with its new personal shopping app, which will help users reap big rewards by utilizing their revolutionary “scratch-off” technology.
The app works similarly to a lottery scratch off ticket, revealing offers from retailers, instead of the state lottery. It is a fun way for users to get deals on a wide variety of products, including: apparel, entertainment, children’s clothing and toys, home and garden, pets, and auto and sports. Uncovered offers can be saved to use at a future date, and they can even be shared with friends through social networking platforms, e-mail and text messaging.

Tony Sayegh, CEO of Scratch Hard, sees the app as fulfilling a need in the market which will provide users with discounts, without the headache.
In a recent statement, he said, “Scratch Hard focuses on a consumer’s immediate need for information leading to purchase, without all of the added steps like checking in, scanning product bar codes, or earning points.” Scratch Hard, he says, is different; “We have created a simple shopping app for finding products, retailers, and special offers, and added an element of fun that we felt users would enjoy—the experience of a scratch-off ticket.”
The free app will be available for iPhone users. Unlike with real scratch-off tickets, users of Scratch Hard win every time that they use it.
