Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the Shop The Rock coupons?
The offers are exclusively available in the Shop The Rock mobile app, available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play. You can view the coupons in the app, and activate them to use them. A small charge gives you access to hundreds of dollars in savings at businesses located in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Offers are available to activate seasonally:
Winter coupons are valid January 1 – March 31
Spring coupons are valid April 1 – June 30
Summer coupons are valid July 1 – September 30
Fall coupons are valid October 1 – December 31

Offers may be activated until one day prior to the end of each coupon season.  The offers automatically change in the app four times per year. Unused coupons do not carry forward to the next coupon season.

How do I redeem the Shop The Rock coupons?

Once you’ve activated the current offers in the Shop The Rock app, you simply show the coupon at time of purchase and tap it to redeem. A confirmation will appear to confirm you want to use the coupon; if you or the person serving you select “yes”, the offer will become inactive and will be marked as redeemed.

Each coupon can only be used once per user account, per coupon season. You may activate the next set of offers when they become available each season.

Where can I use Shop The Rock coupons?

We have partnered with several businesses across Newfoundland and Labrador. Offer details are specified on the coupons, and/or you can refer to the map in the Shop The Rock app to see pins at locations with current offers/coupons available.

Can you tell me about the fundraising opportunities with Shop The Rock?

Absolutely!  We offer a great fundraising program that is beneficial to the fundraising organization as well as those who support the fundraiser using a fundraiser code, which gives consumers a discount on the price to activate the coupon set during the fundraiser period. Shop The Rock fundraisers are available to non-profit organizations, schools, sports and recreation programs, community groups and individuals who are fundraising to support a member of the community.  Our fundraisers are as easy as 1 – 2 – 3…sign up, share your code, receive your funds!  You can find more information on the Fundraisers page of the Shop The Rock website.
