AI-8112 Coupons: The Future of Promotions


These new standardized, one-time use coupons solve a lot of problems traditionally found with current coupons. The Ai-8112 standard fights against counterfeit coupons and coupon fraud. Shoppers enjoy the convenience to have one coupon work for wherever they shop, in-store or online (no more searching for promo codes!). Retailers and manufacturers also get administrative benefits like streamlined acceptance and settlement plus real-time validation of coupon redemption.

Coupon fraud costs businesses $100M+ each year

AI-8112 uses real-time validation and serializes each coupon for single-use, processing coupons quickly and securely


AI-8112 coupons are available for digital or printed executions, like paper and save-to-device for in-store use, plus have the ability to use in online shopping and added to eCommerce carts.
