Be the First to Know: A Shopping Marketplace & Cash Back Loyalty Platform, Powered by Blockchain That's Set to be Featured in an Upcoming Startup Reality TV Series Airing this Fall. 

Invest in Gift Jeenie

This is your Chance to invest in Gift Jeenie before the show airs!


Gift Jeenie combines the best elements of Ebates & Pinterest. It's a shopping marketplace that lets you browse any online retailer & cash-back loyalty platform powered by blockchain. Through Gift Jeenie's "intended" use of blockchain technology, users will get cash-back rewards on their purchases, securely and quickly.


With so many eCommerce and brick-and-mortar retailers, each store has their own loyalty program that is specific to them. There are too many cards and too many programs for shoppers to engage in. Gift Jeenie disrupts the loyalty program industry by offering a single loyalty platform across all retailers. As a retail marketplace, Gift Jeenie builds relationships with shoppers and retailers. In a few steps, shoppers are able to personalize their shopping experience. They only see the items that interest them and the retailers they want to shop with.



Gift Jeenie shoppers get the benefit of being able to create a Wishlist. You might see things you like and never remember where you found them. Gift Jeenie catches all the things you like, across multiple retailers. Gift Jeenie users, can share their Wishlists with friends and family via their preferred social media channels. Loved ones can view these lists and give the gift they know will be cherished.


For retailers that want to be a part of the Gift Jeenie eco-system, get insights and understanding into a shopper's intent. With Machine Learning operating in the background, the app learns a consumer's behaviour. It will tailor deals and display products the consumer would be most interested in, increasing conversion rates.


Loyalty remains a big challenge for both retailers and users. For retailers, it's user retention. For users, it’s the inability to use their loyalty points across multiple retailers. Blockchain technology can be leveraged to reinvigorate customer loyalty programs by offering users the ability to redeem rewards with any e-retailer. (Deloitte, 2018)


Gift Jeenie is looking to solve this challenge by building one of the first cash-back programs built on blockchain in North America. We already have the users and retail partnerships in place, and we are leveraging blockchain to monetize our user base.


The retail industry is already looking to move in this direction. Japanese eCommerce giant Rakuten announced earlier this year their intent to convert their $9 Billion loyalty rewards portfolio into blockchain-powered rewards (TechCrunch, 2018). It is speculated that Amazon will make a similar announcement later this year. (Bonner and Partners, 2018)


Loyalty programs are ripe for a disruption and through our use of Blockchain and AI, Gift Jeenie will provide just that. Gift Jeenie already has an exciting number of users and traction. We are looking to continue our growth by changing the online retail marketplace by building one of the first cash-back programs in North America powered by blockchain.


The proceeds from our current raise will be leveraged to continue development of our key Blockchain & AI elements.


Gift Jeenie Corp. (a Canadian entity, distinct of Gift Jeenie USA) has built the first phase of the Gift Jeenie platform. Moving forward, Gift Jeenie Corp. (CDN) is restructuring under Gift Jeenie USA. Gift Jeenie Corp (CDN) will focus on developing the Gift Jeenie software platform, and Gift Jeenie USA Inc will take over sales, marketing, partnerships, strategic relations and revenue generation for North America. In the meantime, a license was granted to Gift Jeenie USA for use of Gift Jeenie Corp's intellectual property, including the app. This is due to the fact that our user base and partnerships are primarily based in the US. The focus is to grow the Gift Jeenie team & operations to support our growing US presence.

How it Works

Gift Jeenie is a personalized shopping aggregator. It curates the best deals and finds the hottest trends for its the users. Gift Jeenie has evolved to combine the best elements of Pinterest and Ebates!


With the Wishlist feature, users do not need to open multiple browser tabs or bookmark them in places they’ll never look again! With Gift Jeenie, users will be able to create multiple wish lists, which also act as memory banks. Users can then share them with friends and family via their favorite social-media channels such as Facebook, Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, Slack, Pinterest and others. Gift Jeenie also allows users to browse any online retailer in one place! 


We have partnered up with influencers across North America to provide users with the latest trends in fashion. Users can discover the latest fashion styles with our influencers' top picks for trendy outfit ideas and shop our curation of in-style jeans, dresses, shirts, sweaters, jackets and much more. Furthermore, with the use of AI, everything is personalized for the user.

The key component of monetization is cash-back. Gift Jeenie has a number of retail & affiliate partnerships. For example, when a user spends on any affiliate retailer via Gift Jeenie, they will earn cash-back on their purchase. This will all be done with our "intended use" of blockchain technology. The funds raised from our current round will go towards building out our cash-back prototype on blockchain.


The Problem and Our Solution

The Problem for Retailers:
The online retail market is saturated, and sellers are fighting to retain loyal customers. Retailers are fighting for their place in the market, and smaller sellers are simply looking for visibility. As it stands, 60% of consumers prefer cash-back on credit cards and cash-back is ranked second in terms of rewards currency with the highest consumer engagement (Nasdaq, 2018).


The Solution:
With Gift Jeenie, we solve this problem by having everything in one place. Users can add items from their favorite retailers to their Wishlists' within the Gift Jeenie app. Users will also be able to view premium retailers and discover trendy items curated from their favorite influencers. On top of this, you can share these Wishlists' on social media, leading to receiving the perfect gift, but most importantly "right" gift. 


The Problem for Consumers:
Online shopping is never easy. New tabs and windows get opened and forgotten about. You put a pair of shoes in your shopping cart on your phone and then you get a text message and before you know it the shoes are forgotten about. When you do remember and go back, the size you are looking for is no longer available.


The Solution:
With Gift Jeenie, we solve this problem by having everything in one place. Users can add items from their favourite retailers to Wish List in our app. Users will also be able to view premium retailers that are currently offering these items giving them the opportunity to compare prices within the app. On top of this, you can share these Wishlist’s on social media, leading to getting the perfect gift.
