FACEDEALS

Facedeals automatically registers your face when you enter a venue, checkin you in and sending you customized coupons based on your previous ‘Likes’, making your check-in process much more seamless.

Once users download the app and validate their profile online then the facial recognition will automatically log when someone enters a participating venue, checks them in and sends them an offer via SMS based on preferences gleaned from their Facebook history.

 

Why I’m Curious: The scheme has already come under fire from people predicting a wide-scale reluctance in cameras actively scanning faces on entrance to any shop, bar or club. With the later generation of more digitally accepting millennials it will be interesting to see whether the desire for seamless coupon redemption will outweigh this reluctance.
