People who receive food stamps benefits can, for the first time, easily
access hundreds of digital coupons through Fresh
EBT
, a free smartphone app that allows Electronic Benefit Transfer
(EBT) cardholders to check their balances, transaction history, add to
their digital shopping lists and more. (Fresh EBT is available for
participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also
known as the food stamp program.)

The Fresh EBT app, first launched in January 2016, is now used by more
than one million people across the country each month.

"Forty-two million Americans - one in seven Americans - rely on food
stamps to feed their families," said Jimmy Chen, CEO and founder of
Propel, which in April raised $4 million from venture firm Andreessen
Horowitz, the Omidyar Network, the Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant,
and hip-hop artist Nas. "The biggest request we receive from families is
how can we help them save money on groceries. By teaming up with
Quotient, the leader in digital coupons and grocery savings, we're
making it possible for our users to save money through Fresh EBT to feed
their families."

Fresh EBT users can now add digital coupons for groceries and household
items to their loyalty accounts at many grocery retailers across the
country, including Jewel-Osco, Safeway and Stop & Shop, and a range of
others. Shoppers simply enter their account number—typically a phone
number—at checkout and savings are automatically applied.

"This holiday season is the perfect time to launch our partnership with
Propel," said Steven Boal, Founder and Executive Chairman of Quotient,
which runs the popular Coupons.com
app and website. "A big part of our mission has also been to help people
in need as well as to help all shoppers save. Too many families are
living on the edge, and I'm thrilled that Quotient can help Propel's
million — and growing — struggling families save extra money on
groceries."

The digital coupons are delivered through the Quotient
Retailer iQ™ platform
, which powers the digital savings programs at
most major grocers in the country as well as drug, mass and club stores.
The platform connects into a retailers' point-of-sale system, and uses
purchase history and other proprietary data to personalize and deliver
relevant coupons. Shoppers have access to several hundreds of dollars of
savings a day, and, all told, about 40 percent all U.S. households are
registered to savings programs powered by Quotient.

A recently published Harvard study
showed that Fresh EBT helped its users make their benefits last longer,
underscoring the importance of financial management tools for low income
Americans. Fresh EBT is available in all U.S. states and territories.
