SPONSORED: Blinker app innovates car sales, connects buyers and sellers directly

Full disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Blinker. I have been compensated for my time. All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect Blinker. 

Are you in the market to buy or sell a car? Blinker is an app that can help you buy, sell, and search for cars. The app just launched in Florida and buyers are saving an average of $3,000 per transaction.

Most Americans despise shopping for cars. In fact, I was recently in the car market and it was very unpleasant overall dealing with car sales reps and managers trying to take you for a ride for every dollar bill. The worst is when the sales rep try to rush you into a major purchase decision.

Blinker aims to solve these issues by cutting out the middleman and directly connecting buyers and sellers in the car market.

Blinker has handled the car sales transactions for over $57 million in their first 12 months of operations.

The app introduces financing options for buyers and sellers to help them avoid having to use a dealership to cut the deal.

Buying and selling cars with Blinker is supported in Colorado, Texas, California, and Florida right now.

Refinancing is supported in Colorado, Texas, California, Florida, and Georgia.

Blinker does not charge a fee to sell or buy your car. It is FREE to sell and buy your car with Blinker.

For a limited time, when you download Blinker, enter my code CARLOSEATS and list your car for sale, you’ll earn $200 when it sells.

Here are some things sellers will need to sell:

  • Proof of ownership
  • Bank account to link
  • Expectations of scheduling a test drive
  • Expectations to prepare paperwork for sale

Sellers will be paid directly to their bank account.

Buyers must be pre-approved for credit before they can make negotiations with sellers. Blinker runs a soft credit check to see if a buyer can be approved for a loan. Blinker is a state-approved lender for transactions as well through their finance arm. The seller is paid in-full and the buyer makes payments to Blinker, if financing is needed.

Blinker verifies the identities of both buyers and sellers, provides complimentary CARFAX documents, and has a 17-point fraud check as well.

There are plenty of reasons to check out Blinker today.

Cut restaurant wait time down with TorchFi interface

Tired of downloading apps for businesses you frequent to your smartphone? I cannot count how many different apps I have downloaded to my phone for businesses that I never open.

Local start-up company, TorchFi, aims to end the push for restaurants to make their own app and gives restaurants the ability to connect with their customer via a Wi-Fi connection.

Customers can access restaurant menus through the TorchFi connection and order their food and pay online – avoiding getting caught in line during busy lunch or dinner rush times. They can simply walk into a restaurant and sit at a table and order their food when they connect to the available Wi-Fi. The wireless interface can also help customers call a waiter to help them.

On the business side, the restaurant will receive data about overall customer buying habits/trends and make life easier for their customers – repeat customers can easily order their regular orders with a smart interface that remembers past orders by a customer. All without forcing a customer to download their individual app.

TorchFi is currently targeting fast-casual businesses with busy lunch and dinner rushes. Tampa is a perfect target with plenty of concepts having their beginning here or expanding in the area including Burger 21, PDQ, 4Rivers Smokehouse, Mission BBQ…to name a few.

TorchFi is starting locally with The Attic and Moxie’s Cafe. Downtown Tampa, South Tampa, Brandon, and Carrollwood all have busy lunch rush crowds that could be alleviated using this interface. The interface can also be used for malls and food courts, retail brands, salons, and spas.
