What’s on your agenda for the weekend? How does a helicopter lesson sound? Afterwards we’ll go eat a 3-course prix-fixe lunch. You won’t need anything besides your phone, that is, if you have Freebie App.
Freebie is the Chicago based app that rewards it’s users with free services, products and experiences, based off their social capital as well as their social influence. The app released in July 2013 and since then, has caught on fire. What else would you expect from an app that offers free three day passes to Chicago’s very own music festival, Lollapalooza?

Chicagoans, if you don’t have this app already, you’re way out of the loop. If you don’t believe me, check out the 900+ 5-star reviews in the app store. So how does it work you might ask? When you download Freebie, you will be asked to connect your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Foursquare. After connecting, your social influence will be determined. Based on the amount of social capital that you have, Freebie will present to you different rewards just waiting to be redeemed.
Freebie App is easy to use, creating a positive Customer Experience
The coolest thing about this app is the fact that all of these deals are 100% free. Unlike Groupon or Living Social, both of which present deals at hugely discounted prices, Freebie literally hands them to you at no cost. The only thing Freebie asks of you is permission to post on your Facebook once you’ve redeemed a deal. And who wouldn’t want to share these sweet deals with their friends?
So now that you know all there is to know about Freebie, what’s stopping you from that helicopter lesson? Get the app now and see what your social capital can do for you.
