One-Stop Shop for Online Coupons

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

When our generation hears coupon, we think of our grandmas looking through the Sunday paper and cutting out 20¢ off coupons for Ivory soap. Well guess what, coupons have evolved and they are more at our disposal than ever. If you have never heard of this site, you must visit it!! Retail Me Not (http://www.retailmenot.com) is just another amazing perk of the internet!!  The creators of this fabulous site have developed a way to track all coupons and provide any searcher with the power to get a deal! Retail me not is a very user friendly site, they provide any current promotional codes (for online purchases) and current printable coupons (Like Granny does it).  On the site, you are able to search by store, website, brand or product. You are also able to tailor your search to a specific geographic location ie, if you want Chinese food, you can see if any local restaurants are offering any discounts!!

The picture above is the  'home' page of the site. You can see how user friendly it is!!





Above, is a screen capture of a search I did in the 'printable coupons' tab. I simply typed in my zip code and what I was looking for and an immediate search response popped up. Notice in the right hand column there is a list of categories, you don't even need to know what you are looking for, you can just see what is out there!!


This is a search I did under 'coupon codes'. If you don't know, there is usually a little box at the bottom of the 'check out' page before you make an online purchase, this is where a coupon code is typed. Coupon codes normally refer to 10% off, free Shipping, or various other discounts. Check out my search (above) for 'Victoria 's Secret'. The site displays not only the type of coupons available, but also how often the coupon works (sometimes the coupons are expired). How cool is that?!?

I use this site regularly and find it immensely helpful. For example, when I was getting married I found this strapless bra at Victoria's Secret, that went amazingly with my wedding gown but I really didn't want to pay full price for it. So, I got on retail me not and found a 10% off coupon!! Not a huge discount, but for a girl like me, I just like to know I got a deal!! Check out the site and let me know what you think?  If you use it, how do you like it?
