Receiving Coupons and Earning Jatpoints

Jatpoints are the points that your nominated beneficiary earns from you receiving and accepting advertisements and coupons on your phone. Each point equates to about 1cent and you would usually earn about 10 points or 10 cents per coupon you accept.

What can Jatpoints be redeemed for?

Jatpoints can be redeemed by schools for IT equipment as part of our IT for Schools program. For organisations that do not require IT equipment, we will shortly allow them to redeemed their Jatpoints for vouchers for other items or even for cash payments.  Please see for more information on the IT for Schools program.

 Will I earn Jatpoints for just receiving the Advertisement/Coupon?

For your nominated School to receive Jatpoints, you have to open the Advert/Coupon and Tap Accept to confirm you have read it. This confirmation step is what gives this advertising medium an edge over other advertising method.

As a smartphone user, how many advertisements could I expect to receive?

The Jatly app will send up to 12 advertisements/coupons per phone per day, usually in batches of about 4 at a time,  depending on the number of advertisers targeting your geographic area.  Each phone can earn earn an average of $1.00 a day (100 Jatpoints) a day for their nominated School Beneficiary.

What time of day will I receive the coupons, and will they be received all at once?

The coupons will come through in batches of about 4 at a time. The usual times will be Morning, around Lunch and late afternoon.

How will I know I have received a coupon?

Coupon’s arrive in the form of a digest, with a collection of up to 4 coupons received per digest.

On an Android platform you will see the Jatly logo  on your devices notification bar at the top indicating you have new coupons available. Pull down the notification bar to open and read each Alert/Coupon.

In iOS you will see all current coupons when checking your notifications in the Notification Centre. With notifications enabled you will see the Jatly logo in your phones notification bar indicating you have a new coupon.

How do I accept a coupon?

As you review each coupon you tap the big accept button to move to the next one, and that tap – earns you the value that is displayed against the coupon – normally around ten Jatpoints.  So to accept 4 coupons will take you about 10 seconds, and you will earn 40 Jatpoints which equate to 40 cents.

Why do some coupons show payment amount of zero?

From time to time Jatly may run Free Trial campaigns for advertisers. When we are running one of these campaigns the amount you receive for accepting the coupon will be zero.   Although non-earning coupons do not earn Jatpoints for a School, the advertised special within the coupon is still valid for usage by the Smartphone user with the advertising business.

Redeeming Coupons

Do I have to use the Coupon before my Community Organisation earns the Jatpoints?

No. Just by confirming you have received and read the advertisement you have already earned Jatpoints.

How do I use the Coupon?
