Podcast Rundown



Today’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is made possible by:


It takes so much time to search through coupons and deals to find what you are really looking for. It’s a time waster and not very fun. Well, there is a new app that is changing how online shopping works, making the money saving experience more enjoyable. and it only takes 60 seconds to get started.

It’s called Benjamin.

Benjamin considers your favorite brands, sizes, and your interests to find awesome deals for products you actually want. Other deal sites offer things like photography lessons and yoga classes, but Benjamin works with brands such as Ray Ban, Patagonia, and even the NFL to bring you real deals that you actually want.
Benjamin has been called the Tinder of personalized shopping – because you never know what deal you’re gonna get and all it takes is a left or right swipe to claim an offer.

And just for our listeners, the folks at the Benjamin app have set up a webpage where you can claim deals such as:
– Half-off Spotify Premium
– Hulu for $3 a month
– 25% off Starbucks gift cards
– and half-off Ray Bans
It’s all about the benjamins! And keep some extra benjamins in your pocket by heading over to to see all the special offers for yourself!
