Progressive Grocer selected Sarah Schloemer, the co-founder and president of CommonKindness Inc., as one of the Top Women in Grocery for 2013, for creating this innovative coupon platform.
CO-FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT,
“Sarah Schloemer, a former account executive with experience at several leading advertising agencies, launched CommonKindness.com, a free coupon website, in April 2012. In less than a year, she had guided the startup to No.2 position in grocery coupon websites. Under Schloemer’s leadership, CommonKindness has reinvented the online coupon model, developing a performance-based, pay-per-sale model, eliminating coupon loading and print fees for brands, and simultaneously creating a sustainable funding source for nonprofit groups. Each coupon redeemed benefits the consumer’s nonprofit of choice. The new coupon model has attracted many major brands, including Hershey, Johnson & Johnson, and Frito-Lay. Schloemer has focused on making CommonKindness as secure as possible, and has developed a partnership with The Kindness Card and UMB Financial Corp. to offer the CommonKindness Visa Platinum Rewards program. She also worked to develop the CommonKindness iframe. She is currently a member of the Association of Coupon Professionals.”
