Sometrics' Marketplace Launches GamerBar Browser Add-On

Sep 29, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Sometrics announced that its virtual goods marketplace now allows gamers to earn Game Coins, a redeemable currency for numerous online games, through everyday online activity.

With the new GamerBar, a browser add-on, online game fans gain access to exclusive perks while browsing and shopping at online retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Priceline, The Northface,, and Best Buy.

Simply by installing the GamerBar to their web browser and using the search feature, gamers can earn Game Coins every time they're online. Shopping online with any of the selected retailers racks up bonus Game Coins as well. Through the browser add-on, gamers will receive exclusive updates and promotions as well as priority knowledge of new missions and raffles. The earned currency can then be redeemed for virtual goods and credits at any of's social gaming partners.

"The new GamerBar is a simple and fun way to earn Game Coins and bonus items for a variety of online games," said Ian Swanson, CEO and co-founder of Sometrics. "We implemented the GamerBar as a new way to deliver our unique and customized services, so while players are happily surfing the web and exchanging Game Coins for their favorite virtual items, our valued partners gain increased exposure to a niche demographic." "When Sometrics approached us to help them implement the GamerBar, we knew our Loyalty Suite would be a perfect fit," said Michael Jaconi, VP, FreeCause. "Our solutions monetize online search and shopping activity as well as reward gamers with the virtual currencies they care about. FreeCause's online tools are a great compliment to's platform, but the real benefit will be for the players who will now have the opportunity to earn Game Coins by browsing online."
