Coupons.com Adds Coupon Codes to App UpdateBy: Erika Watts - November 4, 2013
Heads up couponers and others who like to save money–the popular savings website Coupons.com is releasing an updated app for Apple iOS devices on Monday. The updated app offers coupon codes and offers from both national and local retailers. This works out perfectly since thousands of people will begin flocking to the stores to make holiday purchases soon.
Version 2.0 of the Coupons.com app will include a host of improvements, but the one people are most excited about is the addition of coupon codes, something that the RetailMeNot app has offered for a long time.
According to Coupons.com, “Thousands of coupon codes are now available for saving on online shopping at hundreds of stores…For users shopping in-store, offers are available for redemption at checkout. Just show offers on your mobile device in the physical store. Top stores include Bath & Body Works, JCPenney, Macy’s, The Home Depot, and J. Crew.”
The app is free and available for download via iTunes, and you can register to access additional savings. Check out the new Coupons.com iOS interface below.

“More and more consumers are reaching for their mobile devices to help them shop and save. In fact, during last year’s holiday season, the percent of web-based purchases made on a mobile device reached well into the double digits and one-third of smart phone owners indicated they used a mobile coupon while holiday shopping,” said Steven Boal, CEO of Coupons.com.
“We’re continuing to invest in mobile solutions to make shopping and saving better for consumers this holiday season, and all year long,” Boal continued.
After taking a test-drive of the updated Coupons.com iOS app, it’s easy to see how the app will become even more popular, especially as people start their holiday shopping since it offers savings from Toys ‘R’ Us. It’s a good thing that the updated app was released at the beginning of November, which will give retailers about three and a half weeks to get used to accepting codes from the app before Black Friday arrives.
