Tata DOCOMO Launches Unique Location-Based Service ‘Offers Near Me’

Tata DOCOMO today launched ‘Offers Near Me’, a unique Location-Based Advertising Service for its GSM customers in Andhra Pradesh circle.

Offers Near Me’ is early first location-based opt-in program that allows Tata DOCOMO GSM customers to receive exciting deals, offers and discount coupons from their favorite retailers — FMCG brands, apparel companies, malls, restaurants, cinemas, coffee shops, auto dealers, and many more. Value deals and discounts offered depend on the location the customer is travelling in and individual retailer offers.

This service is free and Tata DOCOMO GSM customers will not be charged, but to subscribe this service customers will have to dial the interactive portal at *533*9#. Upon subscription, customers will be provided with an enhanced shopping experience, receiving timely location-specific deals in the exact location they are in. These deals will be unique and better than any market offering, providing greater value to Tata DOCOMO users.

Tata DOCOMO has partnered with Stay In Touch Mobile for this VAS offering and has successfully piloted this project in Andhra Pradesh. The exciting new service will be rolled out nationally in a phased manner.

To think people will opt in to get compromised on their own privacy by advertising their location to advertising companies!!! And Tata Docomo calls the “FREE”!!! Holy crap!

Atleast from their website they seem to triangulate based on tower location, which would mean they would be able to identify your exact loaction.
