Celebrate National Coupon Month with savings and deals right from your smartphone.
If you celebrate National Coupon Month like you celebrate your birthday, then you like to party over a good discount. Coupon clipping can still thrill a bargain hunter who has skills to find deals, but that mobile device attached to your side is also a money-saving tool.
Take a break from the scissors and pick up your phone — finding good deals is no longer an art form limited to cutting coupons. From an extreme coupon app to designer discount promo codes, your smartphone is a digital gateway to databases of deals and unlimited coupon savings.
Experience the thrill of a great deal with the following coupon apps and discount websites:
As you run into your local store for diapers and a jug of milk, earn points with the Shopkick app. You can also earn and redeem points for most major stores. Right before a shopping trip or quick errand, browse Shopkick to find exclusive deals.
Count on Yowza to send geo-specific coupon alerts and deals. Couponing diehards can rely on Yowza for discounts you won’t find anywhere else because many coupons come directly from merchants. Save coupons to your phone as favorites. Then to use a mobile coupon, a cashier will scan your phone at the cash register.
Fashionistas also love a steep bargain and exclusive deals, especially on luxury brands. Join Gilt.com to gain access to brands for up to 60 percent off. By downloading the Gilt on the Go app onto your mobile phone, you can shop for Safavieh new home decor or Rebecca Taylor fashions while the little one’s napping or as dinner’s cooking.
Fitness fanatics also love fashion, just active fashion for running, biking, hiking, and yoga. As a member of The Clymb, you’ll have access to brand-name active and outerwear and can receive up to 70 percent off. You can set up notifications to have exclusive discounts sent right to your mobile inbox. While shopping brands such as Iris and Terramar for your upcoming ski weekend getaway, you can also look for The Clymb promo codes on sites such as retailmenot.com, coupons.com and savings.com.
