Connected Car Company Zubie Launches Perks Program for Customers
Dec. 19, 2014—Zubie, a company in the emerging connected car space, unveiled Thursday its new Perks program to offer timely and targeted automotive savings to drivers—including on service and repair.
The Perks program is the first of its kind to use connected car technology in order to offer drivers savings on items such as insurance, services or accessories through qualified third-party vendors. By gaining insight into driving or vehicle data, vendors are able to determine specific owner needs and effectively tailor and deliver discounts.
With Zubie Perks, drivers can use their driving or vehicle data to qualify for special discounts and significantly reduce automotive expenses. For instance, if Zubie diagnostics finds your car has a weak or dying battery, Perks can search for battery deals from partner merchants and you will be notified if any are offering discounts on car batteries.
Several of the current categories offered in the Zubie Perks program include: insurance, service and repair, car battery discounts, warranty, roadside service and new car and resale financing offers.
Auto service providers and insurance companies such as Progressive, CARCHEX, Sears and Urgent.ly have already signed on as partners to offer deals to Zubie users who consent to sharing their data through the Perks program.
