What's New in Version 3.2.15

I have been using this app for about two years and have found great eats for less around town. It's an especially useful app if you eat out a lot, want to try a new eatery w/guests or by yourself, want to minimize risk on trying a new place or want to support small businesses. The downside is they don't have a lock on major markets like Chicago or Los Angeles --just Atlanta. Perhaps they'll scout more deals in all major cities soon.
I've not used this app for retail shopping primarily b/c I'm a loyalty shopper. Otherwise, their restaurant recommendations are pretty good! I saw a complaint about spam-like emails, but I'm certain it's because the user has not adjusted their communications settings. I only receive email reminders when deals to places in my "stash" are about to expire.
My sole complaint is that it took more than four months to eliminate duplicate neighborhood listings. This after I brought the error to the attention of two different staffers on two different occasions. So, if you have a suggestion or major complaint, don't expect a speedy response or resolution.
Spam spam spam
Do not download this app unless you like spam emails. They literally send you 5-8 emails per day. Even when you unsubscribe they keep sending. I have Unsubscribed at least 5 times. I wish I never downloaded this. But if you don't honor my request to unsubscribe I will seek legal action. What's the point of the app if all you do is send emails!
I love bargains so ScoutMob is everything I was looking for. I haven't been using it that long, but I'm very pleased.
