Pepsi Loot is a new location-based mobile app that claims to be the first to have a loyalty program associated with it. People who have the app (available for iPhone and iPod Touch) can check into to any of Pepsi’s 200,000 QSR locations that serve Pepsi, called “Pop Spots”. Users earn rewards when they check in, like a free song download after three stops. The app also presents a CRM opportunity for restaurants, who can target users based on their location, and send mobile offers like free Pepsi with food purchases.
