When shopping online, my number one rule is to seek out a coupon code first. There are tons of places online to find coupon codes, but my favorite place to look – and the first place I always check – is RetailMeNot. I can’t remember how far back I have used the site for searching out coupon codes, probably around the time my daughter was born (four years ago). If there is an online coupon out there, it is probably on RetailMeNot.com.
My favorite coupon code site is now mobile. All the coupons I love in a handy-dandy, easy-to-use app. I love technology.
Of course, the first thing you need to know is that the RetailMeNot app is free. (I would search for a coupon code if it wasn’t – LOL!) Right now it is only available on iPhones/iPads (sorry fellow Droid users, hopefully we will get it soon). Guess I have to make sure I take my hubby with me when I shop!
After downloading the RetailMeNot app on my iPad, here are the first things that I noticed (and love):
- In-store coupons!!! Have you ever gotten to a store only to realize you left your coupons at home (biggest frustration ever!). Now you will always have coupons at your finger tips. Simply search in-store coupons pull up the store you are shopping at and show the app to the cashier. Score!
- Shop from the app. Want to shop online on the go? Do it all within the app. When you click on a coupon code, the code is placed at the top of the screen and your shop is opened within the app. When you are ready to check out simply drag your code from the top of the page into the coupon spot and you are good to go.
- Not ready to shop? If you have ever seen a coupon that would be great to use in the future only to forget where you saw it, you will love the ability to save your fave coupons for later.
- Window shopping. Search savings by top coupons, popular searches or category listings. Of course if you know what you are looking for, you can search for that site specifically too.
Ready to download the app? You can download it right from your phone in the app store, or download it online here. Wanna see the app in action first, check out RetailMeNot’s video to learn about the newest way to find coupons on the go.
