Hoping to counteract the negative effects of a struggling economy, more companies are using "Incent to Purchase" (I2P) programs than ever before. According to PROMO Magazine, "Coupons were distributed in big numbers last year and shoppers, troubled by economic woes, turned in billions of them, marking the first time in 16 years that redemption did not decline."

"I2P programs such as rebates, gift cards and high value couponing are more popular today than ever before," claims Roundhouse Marketing's Senior Solutions Architect, Mike Mahnke.
