A new smartphone app is offering up to 50% off food and drink at some of the UK’s most popular restaurants and bars, and raising money for homeless charities in the process.

The Dealer App offers huge discounts at some of the UK’s favourite restaurants and in return asks customers to donate to charities committed to fighting homelessness.

The discounted dining app gives users access to exclusive deals, and launched on 23 October to diners in Manchester, Liverpool, Swansea and Cambridge – giving customers the chance to pass on some of their savings as a helping hand to their local homeless charity.

Customers simply choose a deal within the app, arrive at the venue and get staff to enter their unique pin code, the app then gives diners the opportunity to return a small amount of the money it has saved you back to charities fighting homelessness.

More than 250 popular and award-winning restaurants have joined the platform ahead of the launch week, 23 October – 1 November.

Donations made via the app will be given to homeless charities in the region they are made, with charity partners in each launch area confirmed as, Manchester based, Mustard Tree, Liverpool based The Whitechapel Centre, Swansea based Shelter Cymru, and Cambridge based Jimmy’s and Wintercomfort, all of which help transform the lives of people who are affected by poverty and homelessness.

Edward Alun-Jones, director at The Dealer App, said: “Our aim is to help combat the growing homelessness issue across the UK by placing the issue at the centre of everything we do.  By giving people the opportunity to give back after they have saved, we hope to raise additional funds for charities and services that are stretched by government cuts. As well as money, we also contribute the time of our employees to homeless charities every week.”

Alun-Jones continues, “The Dealer aims to solve the problem of empty seats in restaurants and turn them into revenue, by offering customers irresistible discounts on food and drink in their favourite restaurants and bars – in return we ask for a small donation and for users to return some of their savings back to charities fighting homelessness in the local community. Giving back is optional but the discounts are available every day. We ask people to give only when they feel they can.”

The Dealer platform includes an easily accessible online portal for restaurant owners to manage their promotions easily and effectively. Restaurant owners can change their promotions in real time, focus them on specific times of the day or days of the week and cap the amount of people that are eligible to receive each offer.

The app aims to shake up the way vendors list and advertise promotions, and intends to directly impact the number of new customers that visit the restaurant and ultimately boost restaurant revenue.

The Dealer App is available to download on both the Apple and Android App stores, and is currently running similar restaurants partnerships in Oxford, Liverpool, Cambridge, and Swansea.
