TotalSaved.com announces a free, secure web-based coupon savings tracking software. It helps members keep tabs on how much they're saving when they use coupons, cash in on rebates and shop sales. The service is non-intrusive and is easy to use. Members sign up with an email address and enter their savings from coupons, sales and rebates. Then TotalSaved.com tracks their savings and generates reports and graphs that show how much they have saved over time.
"My wife and I always knew we saved a lot of money by buying things on sale and using coupons, but we never really took the time to add it up, because there was never a good way to do it," says Louis Rigo Jr, owner of http://www.TotalSaved.com. "When we found out we were pregnant with our daughter, we wanted to see what we were saving so we'd know how plan our budget."
After looking around on the Web for a savings tracker and not finding one, Rigo, a programmer, decided to write one himself. He and his wife found the program useful and decided to let other people use it too. TotalSaved.com was born.
"It was a challenge to get a new website up and running while helping to take care of a baby, but at least now we have a tool that can track the information we wanted to track," Rigo says.
The coupon savings tracker has been online and open to the public for a few weeks and is already gaining quite a following. Rigo attributes a lot of the success of TotalSaved.com to the fact that the service is completely free to use and only collects the most basic of information to create an account (an e-mail address, a password to access the account, and the member's home state, for general demographic categorization purposes).
Founded to fill a need for both extreme coupon-ers and not-so-extreme coupon-ers, the TotalSaved.com free service securely tracks savings. The owner is committed to expanding the website with additional features based on his own ideas and feedback from the community.
