SURGE HOLDINGS PARTNERS WITH AATAC TO PLACE SURGEPAYS™ BLOCKCHAIN PORTAL INTO 40,000 RETAIL LOCATIONS.

SURGE HOLDINGS AND AATAC have completed an agreement to rollout SurgePays™ 2.0 Blockchain Portal, SurgePhone Wireless and the Surge Volt Android in up to 40,000 retail locations with target completion by Year End of 2019.  

MEMPHIS, TN (February 28, 2019) Surge Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SURG), the Memphis-based Technology, Telecom and Blockchain FinTech Software Company is pleased to announce the completion of a definitive agreement with AATAC to place SurgePays™ in up to 40,000 convenience and general retail outlets by year-end 2019.

AATAC is one of the nation’s largest private trade associations spanning over 80,000 stores across the United States. The group forms relationships with corporate suppliers for the benefit of their retailer network, supports the various suppliers, hosts tradeshows and private meetings.  

The rollout will launch in Florida, Virginia and Texas then expand to other territories in strategic phases. The target goal is 3,000 to 5,000 locations a month with an estimated completion of the national rollout of up to 40,000 locations by year-end 2019.  The next phase would be introducing SurgePays™ to the remaining retail locations in the AATAC network.

Michael Hennessey, Associate Director of AATAC stated; “Our mission is to represent the industry and assist members in increasing their effectiveness and profitability to help them prosper.  We seek to offer the most effective solutions and only recommend the best products and services to our members.  Surge is an ideal partner for us, not only providing top quality, value and level of service for their telecom and FinTech products, but also a new technology marketplace that can help enhance our communication and efficiency with our retail network and the new programs we rollout.”

AATAC reps will soon be activating sites where they’ll deliver Surge Volt Androids and help train merchants on the SurgePays™ Blockchain Portal while also installing point of sale and awareness advertising materials. The merchant will use the portal, with image driven navigation similar to a website interface, to activate SurgePhone Wireless customers, add wireless minutes to SurgePhone customers or customers of any pay as you go wireless carrier and also load debit cards, etc. What makes SurgePays™ unique is that the portal also offers the merchant a wholesale marketplace interface to order consumable goods from regional manufacturers that are now able to distribute their products nationwide.

Brian Cox, CEO of SURG, said “We could not be more pleased with the AATAC partnership. This relationship enables Surge to add corner stores to our SurgePays™ Blockchain SaaS Platform network at a pace and scale we could not accomplish alone. My initial target in this AATAC venture is to achieve $1500 to $2500 top line sales revenue per month from each store while continuing to add consumable products to the merchants’ wholesale marketplace portal as we further develop into a profit partner with these stores.”

About AATAC (Asian American Trade Associations Council)

The AATAC is a national retailers association comprised of smaller buying groups, regional sub-chapters, and other trade organizations all working together under one group.  The aggregate reach of the council is over 80,000+ retail locations in the gas station, convenience store, and general retail industry. AATAC’s primary and affiliate members operate independent stores as well as many franchises of the most popular branded retailers such as 7-11, Circle K, Sunoco, Chevron, 76, BP, Arco, Shell, Marathon, and many others. The association’s board is tasked with the duty of seeking out and forming relationships with select corporate suppliers and industry leaders for the betterment of the entire network. AATAC keeps its network informed about and actively involved with the industry through a myriad of engaging platforms including; hosting their own private educational mixers and trade shows, distributing newsletters and e-blasts, and other informational communications to its thousands of direct and affiliate members that are predominately independent retail owners who would traditionally not have knowledge of or access to the newest and most innovative products and services to help keep them competitive in the industry. The convenience and gas industry reach more Americans on a daily basis than grocery, drugstore, dollar store, and big box stores all combined. For more information, you can visit www.aatac.co.

SURGE LAUNCHES FREE UNLIMITED WIRELESS PLAN NATIONWIDE

SURG to Offer the First Free Wireless Service that is Not Subsidized by the Government


LAS VEGAS, NV (January 9, 2019)
Surge Holdings, Inc.  (OTCQB: SURG), the Las Vegas-based Technology, Telecom and Blockchain FinTech software company announces the first free wireless service not subsidized by the government.

The SurgePhone Wireless  free unlimited plan is available online and will be the flagship product rolled out to a network of approx. 40,000 retail stores throughout the United States. Customers can purchase a SurgePhone Google Certified Android Smartphone for under $100 or simply get a Free SIM starter kit and use with their own unlocked GSM device. Surge anticipates ad revenue of $10 generated from each user service plan, where the more the phone is used the greater the revenue generated. The SurgePhone also becomes the hub for customers to receive the full suite of Surge FinTech products and services.

Brian Cox, CEO of SURG, said “We have now removed any barrier to bringing customers into the SURG ecosystem of products, including the upcoming SurgePays™ reloadable Visa card and rewards program. This free, yet profitable product will also allow us to bring on more stores offering our products which should accelerate the company towards my goal of 100,000 points of distribution across the country. This product will also accelerate our customer acquisition where we can preload and market related Surge products and services for significant additional revenue streams. This unprecedented service truly hits our mission of delivering our customers life enhancing products and services.”

There are no credit checks, contracts or otherwise intrusive obstacles to become a SurgePhone customer. SurgePhone will disrupt the traditional wireless industry by monetizing home screen ad network impressions through strategic technology partnerships. SurgePhone is now a free wireless solution for the unbanked, people with credit challenges, teens, seniors or anyone in between simply looking to cut costs.

Cox further added, “Our Free plan was constructed utilizing data from years of wireless usage reports to determine what the average person is actually using a month. The main thing we want to accomplish is to be able to offer free unlimited texting with a sufficient amount of talk and data included so that we have the customer in our network. This growing network provides a launch and distribution platform for both vendor partners and all of our other Surge products available today and in the future.”

4 Billion people are connected through mobile phones daily while 85% of the time spent on smartphones is in apps. Approximately $192 Billions is spent on mobile advertising each year.
