About Us

magicpin is India’s #1 savings app. No exaggerations.

We are on a mission to make hyperlocal magical. And with more than 1.5 lakh merchant partners and 5 million+ users across a dozen cities, we know a thing or two about scale.

Here’s how it works: Pin a location on the map to find the coolest people in the neighbourhood and where they hang out - cafes, restaurants, trendy fashion boutiques, luxurious spas, and health clubs. Find the buzz in your locality through our user generated pictures, videos, and reviews to discover interesting people and places and get cashback/rewards for visiting those places. Yes, including your local grocery stores and pharmacies.

magicpin drives discovery that leads to business for local retailers across categories like restaurants, fashion, beauty, grocery, spa, gyms, and more. For their spending, users get rewarded in magicPoints that can be used to buy more services and experiences at magicpin partner merchants (or you can magicOrder from the comfort of your home!) magicPoints can be earned at ALL stores in a city, and it doesn’t matter whether you pay through cash, credit/debit card or e-wallet.

Our users can tap into our community, known as “magicians”, who have their finger on the pulse of their city’s neighbourhoods. Their picture stories inspire other users to have those experiences. For retailers and brands, magicpin is the go-to platform to reach out to relevant local customers, highlight their uniqueness, reward loyal customers through magicPoints and vouchers, run real-time promotions, augmented reality games, micro-influencer campaigns and more.

magicpin builds engagement and visibility for its partner retailers and brands to help drive up their new and repeat business.

magicpin is by far the leader in offline marketing for retailers in India. We are live in Gurgaon, Noida, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Goa, Chennai, Ahmedabad and is quickly spreading to more cities and countries.
