What does it take to become industry leaders and consistently maintain pole position? Passion, commitment, vision and a team of dreamers willing to put a shift in. GrabOn found its humble origins in a team of five members with an aim to help the average Indian shopper save big every time they shop online. Our obsession with helping you #SaveOnEverything has made us the country’s most preferred savings destination.

The team that started it all

It has been seven years since we began this journey. We have delivered quality coupons, latest and best offers every day since then. We love helping you save as much as you like saving on your expenses. It has been a wonderful relationship and we hope to continue providing you even more savings than before. Last year was tough for us all but we sustained and grew stronger with your support. On this occasion of our seventh anniversary, we have decided not to wax lyrical and instead focus on the key aspects that make us who we are.

Before we begin, check out our Facebook page for special surprises and exciting goodies!

So, without any further ado, here are seven things that make us India’s #1 coupons & deals marketplace:

1. It’s always about YOU

Our customers are always our top priority. Everything we do, every decision we take is based on the insights we gather from your feedback. Ever since the first day, we have tried to provide you the ultimate coupon browsing experience. The only constant through multiple website redesigns and flow changes has been a smooth and seamless user interface and experience. We have always prioritized your ease of usage, and have opted for a non-intrusive design with no irritating pop-ups and subscription boxes.

2. Money saved is Money Earned

At GrabOn, our mission is to help you save on every single online purchase. Last year alone, GrabOn helped Indians save close to 63 million rupees. We have ventured into the online gifting segment with GrabOn Gift Cards to help you save while shopping for gifts. We know how much you love a steal deal, rest assured we’re doing everything we can to come up with more ways to help you save.

3. Finding New Avenues To Save

We are on the constant lookout for new verticals and categories where we can help you save. Our team ensures this by onboarding top players from previously unexplored verticals. We have forged strategic alliances in aviation, banking, OEM, payment gateways and more. Our partnerships with Amazon, Uber, Medlife, Rapido and many more brands have provided you new opportunities to save. We are hopeful of continuing this trend of entering into new segments and offering you even better deals in the future.

4. We Excel At Innovation

Back when coupon websites used to be cookie-cutter templates, we dared to be different. We opted for a user-focused design and you clearly loved it. Innovation runs deep in our organizational philosophy. In fact, GrabOn was the first in the industry to introduce the Buzz Notification feature to alert you with the latest coupons, hottest offers and ongoing sales. In the last year, we had over 700 million app & buzz notifications delivered to you, our users. Since then, a lot of similar features have flooded the market with very few actually succeeding to do what we did. Our savings app comes with Coupon Finder and Cab Finder, which help you find the best coupons for online shopping and cab-hailing respectively, without switching between apps! Neat, huh? We have a lot more aces up our sleeves, so, stay tuned for upcoming innovative offerings from GrabOn.

5. You Love Us, We Love You Back

We could not have become India’s #1 coupons and deals company without your love and support. We love you to the moon and back. Every year we plan and organize contests to help you win big prizes and amazing goodies. Our Bachat Wali Diwali and Christmas Carnival are hugely popular drawing around 1,50,000 players each. With gift hampers like smartphones, Smart LED TVs, and international flight tickets our Cricket Fantasy League is hotly anticipated every year. So, stay tuned!

6. We Stand Up For What We Believe In

We, as an organization, have never shied away from our social responsibilities. We believe in doing our part and making the world a better place to live in. We actively campaigned during Kerala floods and tied up with Ketto to raise funds for the affected people.

We took a stand against acid attacks by partnering with Stop Acid Attack and Cafe Sheroes. We have actively partnered with NGOs like CRY, Annamrita, YouWeCan to raise awareness about issues like child labor, basic education, and fighting cancer, through our charities page. We are dedicated to working towards a bright and hopeful future for the generations to come.

7. There For You In Difficult Times

Last year wasn’t easy for any of us. Normalcy was stripped from our lives as the whole world went into a lockdown. Much like any other organization, we also had to work from home. We knew that despite being stuck at homes, shopping doesn’t stop and the need to save doesn’t stop either. So, we kept delivering coupons and hot deals to you, working from home, with more than 1 million of our coupons being redeemed.

We also had around 2 million grocery orders delivered to you at lesser costs while you stayed in quarantine. Over 1.2 million registered for online courses using our coupons and offers. We made sure that you didn’t get bored during quarantine and kept smiling through these hard times. And we shall continue to do so in the future, no matter which direction the world spins in.

Check out this funny back to office video that creatively expressed our excitement on returning to office after more than 150 days of Work From Home.

So, these are the seven things that drive us as an organization and make GrabOn what it is. And on the occasion of our seventh anniversary, we would like to thank you again for loving and supporting us. We hope to provide you even better service in the years to come.
