  • Patent number: 10296944
    Abstract: A server receives an indication that a user of a client device has selected social network data associated with a social network provider that maintains a social graph. The selected social network data indicates approval of a coupon offer by the user. In response to receiving the indication, the server computer provides the coupon to the user and sends a link message that causes a user node that is associated with the user to be linked, within the social graph, with a coupon node that is associated with the coupon offer. A message including data associated with the coupon offer is sent to a subset of a set of other users identified, in the social graph that the social network provider maintains, as connected to the user.

  • Patent number: 10163124
    Abstract: A client device detects a QR code (or NFC tag). The client device decodes the QR code. The client device determines that the data encoded within the QR code includes a URL. Based on the URL, the client device sends a first request to a first server identified by the URL. In response to the first request, the client device receives from the first server data configured to cause the client device to display, to a user of the client device, at least one of: a video or an interactive web page. Responsive to the data encoded in the QR code, the client device sends to a coupon server: identification data associated with a user of the client device, and a request for the coupon server to distribute a digital coupon for an offer associated with an identifier encoded within the QR code to an account associated with the user.
