But times are changing and now we have coupons on our phones. The convenience is awesome! Just show the clerk the picture of the coupon on your phone. Always in your pocket and never expires!
Stores are slowly …. but steadily…. jumping on this bandwagon.
AC Moore was quick to accept the phone version, as was Michael’s and Hobby Lobby.
Now Bed Bath and Beyond (a coupon KING) is experimenting with phone coupons by sending them to those who sign up. I used the phone version today at BB&B and it was flawless. (Bed Bath and Beyond is not included on this app, I mention it only as an example of stores experimenting with the mobile model of couponing.)
Keep an eye open at the stores you frequent. If they have a coupon on their website, they might allow you to access that through your phone at the register.
Coupon Sherpa is a free app that has many store coupons and keeps them up to date. I’ve been using this app for about a year, and it gets better all the time.
The list changes, so you have to remember to check the app. (I once made a Yankee Candle purchase only to realize when I got home that I had a Yankee Candle coupon on this app!) (and yes, I fixed it).
As I type this post, the stores with coupons currently on this app are:
Banana Republic Factory store
Bath & Body works
Big 5 Sporting Goods
Chuck E Cheese’s
Coach Factory Outlet
Honey Baked Ham
Jack in the Box
Lord and Taylor
New York & Company
Osh Kosh B’Gosh
The Children’s Place
You can sort by store list or by categories.
Currently these coupons work only in the United States.
