So for our PR 324 class we have to start a blog and discuss our projects with SCVNGR and whatever else we are interested in.  I’m fairly new to this whole blogging thing despite having to have a blog in previous PR classes.  SCVNGR for those of you who don’t know is a social media/ game application used on iPhones as well as Androids (it’s also sms capable, that means text message for those of you who are less savvy tech lingo).  I myself don’t have a smartphone I have a blackberry, lame I know, but I have seen the application on friend’s iPhones and I must say it seems pretty easy to use, I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to use it.

SCVNGR allows you to get discounts and sometimes free products from different stores, restaurants, bars, and pretty much anywhere else you choose to go just by doing everyday things.  For example;  say you go to Buffalo Wild Wings, complete one of the tasks, such as take a picture of yourself eating wings and then post it onto SCVNGR, do this a certain amount of times and WHAMMY you’ll have something free by the tenth visit or whatever number visit that certain place appoints.

It’s that simple.

I mean why wouldn’t you want to get discounts and free stuff.  The way I see it is your spending money at these places anyway why not get something extra out of it as well.  Although not many places in Morgantown have signed up for it yet (I think there’s only like four or five places so far) our class is going to go out there and get as many places as we can to sign up for it.  Each group has a category assigned to it such as retail stores, services, bars, restaurants, and entertainment.  So by the end of the semester there should be at least 50 stores signed up for SCVNGR.  If you’re a college student and looking to save money sign up for this application.

It’ll be worth it.
