Brothers help smartphone users find deals

Posted: Updated:

A couple of Bowling Green brothers have created a tool to help people with smartphones find good deals at restaurants and retail outlets.

Adam and Brad Bunger founded ArtsyQR. The company designs colorful bar codes that people can scan using a downloaded app. The Daily News reports that ArtsyQR customizes each code with the color scheme and logo of the businesses embedded, and they use quick response codes to create what they call a "social discount network."

The brothers say they have worked with dozens of businesses locally and in Glasgow and Louisville - even some in other states - to design codes that allow people to find discounts that may not be available elsewhere and links to a business' social media pages.
