(PRWEB) August 23, 2006 –
These days more and more people are becoming comfortable with shopping online. This has led to a increase in the number of merchants who have an online presence. Even the local fruit shop is seen as not keeping up with the times if it does not have an online presence.
That's why MeanBargains.com (http://www.meanbargains.com) just introduced a new set of coupons and discounts for online shoppers.
As with shopping in a brick and mortar mall, shopping online has certain nuances that if mastered, will result in big savings. One obvious analogy is comparison shopping. There are websites that are dedicated to helping online shoppers compare price at different merchants. Another analogy is coupon clipping, though when it comes to shopping online, the ‘clipping’ part does not really apply.
Novice online shoppers may be missing out on huge savings if they are not using coupon codes. Most of the online merchants have a box for entering a ‘coupon’, ‘coupon code’, ‘promo code’ or ‘promotion code’ during the checkout process.
Though known by different names, this is essentially a character string that needs to be entered to get a discount on the price. These coupons or coupon codes are not usually available at the merchant’s site. The easiest way to get hold of one of these codes is to look for the coupon at a site that is dedicated to providing coupons.
MeanBargains.com was started in June 2005 with the aim of providing coupons and deals to online shoppers. It has deals and coupons from most of the big online merchants.
One complaint that is often heard from online shoppers is that the coupons that they get from coupon websites are either expired ones or invalid ones. Therefore, unlike other similar sites, MeanBargains.com does not cover a big list of online merchants. Instead MeanBargains.com strives to keep the list of coupons up to date with all the restrictions and expiry dates listed clearly.
In addition, visitors to the site have the option of signing up for a free email newsletter that is sent out weekly. This is an easy method for frequent online shoppers to get the latest coupons delivered right to their mailboxes.
MeanBargains.com also has a weblog (or blog) that is updated regularly with the latest coupons and deals. Online shoppers can opt to subscribe to the weblog feed and get the coupon codes on their favorite RSS reader.
So next time before clicking the ‘Purchase’ button, make sure to visit MeanBargains.com and check for available coupons. It pays to choose to save.
