Shoeboxed.com to Offer Revolutionary, Free Service to Monitor Online Shopping and Digital Receipts

Here at Shoeboxed.com, the leader in online receipt and business card management, we are proud to announce we have just launched a new and improved version of our free service that will allow online shoppers to effectively and efficiently manage their purchases and save more money than ever before.

Shoeboxed users can automatically forward their receipts from online retailers to their Shoeboxed accounts, where important data like store name, total, and date are extracted with over 95% accuracy for budgeting, bookkeeping, reimbursements, and tax purposes. Receipts are also sorted into categories with the improved Auto-Categorization tool. With the new e-mail processing system, this free feature is now faster and has even more accurate data extraction than before so online shoppers can conveniently keep track of their purchases and spending with minimal effort and hassle.

By using their Shoeboxed e-mail address as their online shopping address, users can also avoid all the spam and marketing messages being sent by online retailers to their primary inboxes. Old online shopping receipts can simply be forwarded manually from a user’s inbox to their Shoeboxed address. Users can also scan paper receipts and upload them to their Shoeboxed accounts, helping to eliminate clutter and saving time during tax season.

“We just celebrated our second year of going online, and we thought this would be a great way to get back to our roots.” said Taylor Mingos, CEO and Founder of Shoeboxed. “We want to be able to provide a great free service for our DIY users to help them save money during the recession.”

Shoeboxed’s improved free DIY service will revolutionize online shopping by providing users with the ability to automatically categorize their receipts, store them in a secure online archive, maximize deductions and reimbursements, and save time and money on their bookkeeping.

Kentucky Grilled Chicken FAIL

If you haven’t heard about Kentucky Fried Chicken’s new grilled chicken or its recent promotion (backed by Oprah) where you can get a free grilled chicken meal, well, you’ve been hiding in a cave. They’re running tons of TV ads and the Internet is abuzz with the promotion as well.

So when you saturate American media with promises of free chicken, you migh expect that a lot of people are going to take you up on the offer. Apparently, though, KFC was unable to deliver on their promise to give out free chicken to anyone who printed off an online coupon.

Due to “overwhelming response”, KFC ended its free chicken promotion that was supposed to continue over the next few days. Instead, you can redeem you coupon for a raincheck that will let you get free chicken on another day in the future.

No word yet on what Oprah thinks of the “overwhelming response.” She’ll be delivering the commencement address at Duke University this year, and since we’re located just a couple of blocks away, we’ll try to ask her. Think we can get close?

Also, if you’re interested, here is the statement from the KFC president:
We are so sorry, but due to the overwhelming response to our FREE Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal coupon, we can no longer redeem the free coupon at this time. But we will honor our commitment to giving you a free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal.

Please visit a participating KFC restaurant for a rain check form. Complete the form, attach your original coupon , and give it to the KFC restaurant manager or postmark per the form’s instructions, by May 19, 2009, and we’ll send you a rain check for your free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal at a later date, plus a free Pepsi with our compliments. Your participating KFC restaurant will provide you with the form you need.

Please note that the redemption periods of the rain checks will vary. All other terms and conditions of the original free Kentucky Grilled Chicken coupon will apply.

Thank you for your understanding,
Roger Eaton
