Belgian mobile operator Mobile Viking is planning to launch a daily deal app that gives users credit towards their bill for making purchases in certain stores, reports The Verge.

“We say somebody has to pay the bill,” said Frank Bekkers, founder and CEO. “Our goal is that the users have to pay for the cost of using the network. But we believe that third-parties will be happy to pay the bill of the users if they buy stuff with them.”

Mobile Viking plans to launch the app in Belgium in April 2013 and could potentially expand to the U.S. later in 2013.
