Doing it online is so much easier
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) September 3, 2009
The age of couponing that required a pair of scissors and a stack of newspapers is coming to an end. Grocery coupons have come online and new technologies are making them easier to find and use. Although traditional coupon distribution is still dominate, online grocery coupons have been growing exponentially in popularity as coupon providers and coupon users alike realize their advantages over traditional coupons. A popular website, MySavings.com, is now making it easy for consumers to save money using online grocery coupons.
Most consumers are interested in saving money and for couponing it usually comes down to whether or not the time invested is worth the potential savings. Using online grocery coupons does take some effort, but much less than traditional offline couponing. They are easily accessible from any computer with an internet connection and a printer and are accepted at most major grocers. "Doing it online is so much easier", says Brandt Held, cofounder of MySavings.com, a savings community web site that features grocery coupons, free samples, and free stuff. "You can get all of your savings in one place." The type of guy who likes to have everything organized, Held designed MySavings.com to aggregate and categorize all of the grocery coupons and free samples offers that are scattered across the internet into an easy to use directory. MySavings.com gets a direct feed of coupons from all of the large coupon providers and organizes them into sections and categories, such as online coupons to be used for internet shopping, printable grocery coupons to be used at the grocers, and local coupons for use at retailers and service provides.
New technology is also paving the way for new types of coupons, such as mobile coupons. Imagine walking into a mall or store and you automatically receive a text message on your mobile phone with the coupons being offered at that location. Or before you head out, you visit a store's web site and select the grocery coupons that you want and have them sent directly to your mobile phone for the cashier to scan at checkout. A few companies, such as Kroger and P&G brands are already applying a similar program where consumers can send grocery coupons from the web directly to the shoppers' Kroger's card.
The easiest way to get started using online grocery coupons is to sign up on a coupon portal web site, such as MySavings.com. Registration is easy and free and done through a simple sign up process to create a user account. The community feel of the web site is very addictive and encourages users to actively participate.
