Mobile Vikings will offer to help people out with their mobile bills if they support local businesses and purchase their products.

Belgian mobile provider Mobile Vikings is aiming to help people with their phone bills through a unique value exchange. The company will soon be rolling out a daily deals-style app in Belgium that encourages users to support businesses in their area.

Ars Technica reports that the app will provide users with discounts if they check-in to certain locations, and they will receive “Viking Points” if they purchase items through deals on the app. These special credits can be used to to help pay for voice minutes, tests, and mobile data. The more they buy, the more money they get off their bill, and the more they help the third party businesses.
