Sources Of Internet Coupons

Aug 17, 2007
That old favorite, the cents of coupon has made it to Internet marketing and sales. It is estimated that nearly half of all online shoppers in America now look for and use these coupons. They are a real boon to shoppers, who reap considerable savings from using them. They are effective advertising for the retailers and bring new, and hopefully return, customers to their virtual stores.

If you are not finding a daily influx of Internet coupons in you email inbox, there are a number of places to look for them on the Internet. BrandCentralStation offers an overwhelming array of coupon codes, for use on the Internet and printable coupons for everywhere else you shop. They feature Internet coupons for essentials like Ace Hardware, Toys R Us and Adidas. There are also specialty retailers like Musician's Friend and the Nerds. Nearly one quarter of the coupons offer discounts on travel related websites such as Hotel Club.

The discounts offered by these Internet coupons vary somewhat. The majority of retailers offer coupons for free shipping with purchase, some post a minimum purchase. Some offer 10 to 30 dollars off a minimum priced buy and others offer a percent reduction in purchases that varies from 10 to 30 percent. Theses are real savings.

Other sources for Internet coupons are websites called couponmountain, couponcabin and couponcraze. At any of these sites, the consumer may search through an inventory of thousands of coupons for hundreds of different retailers. They offer the same variety form percent of to a specified dollar amount off and conjunction with coupons for free shipping, all of which lead to substantial savings. A coupon for free shipping is especially valuable for those who are looking to purchase home and garden items online where the weight and size of the purchase can be considerable and paired with a premium priced shipping cost. The coupons at these sites are both printable and coupon codes. The latter are redeemed by entering the code directly onto the online order form.

Coupon codes have long been used by travel purveyors such as car rental companies, hotels, motels and airlines. They may result in a lower price, just like traditional coupons. Other coupon codes will be good for a free upgrade, for example, from a mid sized car to a luxury or SUV type model. With the hotel and motel offers, a coupon or coupon code will entitle the customer to a free room upgrade or, in some cases, an extra night free. You must be certain to enter these codes at the time of booking, as most travel purveyors will not honor them at time of payment. It is generally the policy to hold a certain number of rooms solely for promotional customers and with car rental, fulfilling the coupon offer is always based upon availability, which changes, not only with the date of rental but also with the location of desired car rental.

Airline coupons and coupon codes are usually preferentially given to members of the specific airline's frequent flyer club. They are a customer loyalty technique that rewards and draws repeat customers. These offers must be redeemed at time of booking and will usually be good for a lowered price. However, many airlines offer specialty coupon offers to business travelers. These are in the form of free upgrades. The airline is hoping that exposure to this more comfortable form of travel will become additive to the businessperson who routinely travels often and makes several business trips monthly.
