Liven, the mobile app that has had Melbournian foodies in a frenzy, has finally arrived in Sydney. The innovative app combines restaurant discounts with social consciousness in a “Why didn’t I think of that?” sort of way.
Boasting a style of cuisine to suit any taste buds, Liven has already had over 50 Sydney restaurants jump on board, including Cafe del Mar, Kobe Jones, Blackbird, Casa, Meat District Co, Mordeo, Café Birkinghead, Ahgora, Lucetta and Petrol Kitchen.
Set to change Sydneysiders’ entire experience of dining, Liven’s exclusive discount offers make top-notch restaurant dining affordable while the cashless payment functionality offers convenience, but perhaps the most exciting element of the new technology is its ability to share the savings (all or in part) with charities like the RSPCA.
With Liven, you can:
• Locate nearby Liven Partners easily
• Pay your bill with the tap of a button
• Enjoy great discounts and offers from 300+ venues in Melbourne and Sydney
• Use the offers whenever you want – no other complicated conditions
• Order what you actually want, instead of being stuck with pre-set menus
• Track and view your transaction history
Users now can indulge in a fancy meal guilt-free, knowing that they are not only saving money with all-year-round discounts but also helping some great causes with Liven’s ‘Save & Donate’ feature. This allows users who dine at any of Liven’s great restaurants to share a portion of their savings with a variety of charities, directly through the app.
With plenty of charities jumping on board, Liven’s current partners include the RSPCA, National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Royal Children’s Hospital, beyondblue, The Salvation Army, OZharvest, Heart Foundation and Arthritis & Osteoporosis Victoria.
Liven Co-Founder, Dr. David Ballerini said, “On average, people have been donating 60 percent of their savings to charity. We think it is a fantastic result, as we only started the Save & Donate function at the beginning of this year.”
“We recently had a Bluetrain customer donate $125 to support breast cancer research, after saving $250 off their bill. It’s proving to be a great way for people to give back without really having to dig deep into their own pockets”, said David.
For donations, after you choose to share your savings, you will automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt for your donation straight to your inbox.
As if all that were not enough, Liven provides something else to make customers feel good – they can leave their wallet at home. ‘Liven Pay’ allows users to fix up the bill within the app, completely cashless. Simply bring up a voucher in the Liven app, choose to donate a portion of the discounted savings to one of Liven’s charities, then click pay and you are all done.
Unlike many other apps that offer short-term voucher promotions that run out after only a month, Liven offers a premium offer with all of their discounted deals available for a full 12 months. Now you can stock up on your discounts and save them for later when the hunger or thirst for a new experience sets in, or you are looking for a new great place to go for a date.
The app, which is available on both iOS and Android phones, can be downloaded for free (with a premium membership option available for only $29.95 per year, or get it for free when you refer a friend) from the Google Play or Apple App stores.
To check out all the great deals around you, jump on your phone, download the app and start to liven up your taste buds today.
