The digital age of coupons
Americans save around 3 billion dollars a year just by using coupons. In the past, the Sunday newspaper has been the main source for coupons, but as Internet continues to develop, more and more digital coupons are popping up. Here's a look at the newest deal savers right at your finger tips.
- Restaurant.com: Just as the website name implies,
this site is concerned with deals at restaurants. Usually the deal is
to buy a gift certificate at a discounted price.
- Groupon: Posts a daily deal, but only one a day. You can get e-mail notifications of these deals each day.
- Skweez: A local text coupon service. You get a
coupon each day but it's only valid on that day. It's unique because of
its local focus and offers great deals on local restaurants like "buy
one get one free milkshakes at Sammy's".
- Citydeals: A bank of multiple deals in the Salt Lake and Utah County areas. These website focuses on everything from dining to haircuts to dry cleaning. You usually purchase a gift certificate at a discounted price. A plus is that shipping is cheap and the certificates arrive promptly.
