Coupons are an amazing way to save money when shopping online. Also referred to as promotional codes, discount codes, or money off vouchers – all you need to do is enter the given code when it’s time to make your purchase, and you will save big every time! It’s as easy as that.
On each coupon, there is an image or logo for the store / company who is offering the promo. This can be useful for recognizing the company, if the name sounds familiar but you aren’t sure who they are. Furthermore, if you click on the image it will take you to a page on discounts.ca with all the other coupons, deals, and sales for that specific retailer! You can also access this page by clicking underneath the image, where it says “View all (insert company name) coupons”. For example, if you see a great coupon for Perfume Emporium, you can check out the other promotions they have going on, and find even more deals and sales on perfume!
Beside the company logo you will see the title of the coupon, e.g. “10% off at Wireless Emporium”. Beneath the title, you will find a short explanation giving more details on the coupon; what the product is and what the offer includes, such as “coupon applies when spending $50 or more”, “coupon applies to all items store-wide”, “coupon applies to all shoes and accessories”, et cetera.
If you click the title of the coupon, it will open up that company’s website, for example, the Wireless Emporium website. Simultaneously, it will open the promo code for that specific coupon and you will now be able to view the code beneath the coupon description, on discounts.ca. This is the code you will use when purchasing your item! This same process occurs if you click on the button that says “Get Coupon and Visit Site!”
For each coupon, you will see the date that it was added to discounts.ca at the top left corner, e.g. “This coupon was added on Nov 23, 2011”. This information is valuable for you as the consumer, in order to know that the coupon is current and up-to-date, and was specifically and recently chosen by discounts.ca as a great deal for smart shoppers like you.
Additionally, in the top right corner you will find how many days until that specific promo code expires, e.g. “This coupon expires in 4 days”. This can be really useful if you aren’t completely sure whether or not you want to buy something, and need a little extra time to think about it. For example, you need to talk it over with your spouse, partner, or parents to make sure it’s the right decision for the whole family – this is especially true for bigger purchases such as laptops, plane tickets, or furniture. Also, if the item in question is intended as a gift for someone else and you want to make sure that it’s something they don’t already have and something that they really want; you can have that extra detective time without the need to worry! Using the expiration feature, you can be sure to plan ahead so that the coupon won’t finish without you knowing, and you won’t miss out on a great bargain!
Knowing the coupon code “expiration date” is also really beneficial for those of us on a tight budget. For instance, when we need to plan ahead in order to make sure we have the funds available for something that we want! Case in point, when you need to pay off your credit card or re-arrange your budget in order to make room for a new purchase. You can be sure that the DVD, hockey stick, theatre tickets, winter boots, or whatever it is that you want will still have a valid promotional code when you are ready to redeem it. Here at discounts.ca, we realize that providing this information clearly and consistently will take a lot of the stress and confusion out of online shopping and bargain hunting.
Another great feature we have for every coupon is the ability to share that coupon code with your friends, family and co-workers by posting it on your social network. There are buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon, and del.icio.us, situated right underneath the coupon expiration info. This way, you can conveniently let others know when you find an amazing free coupon or money off voucher that you think they might appreciate! There is nothing more thoughtful than referring a great money saving coupon to someone who might not have time to check out discounts.ca, or, if you heard them mention something about wanting a new television, for example, you can send them a link to a great promo code for TV’s! This is also a not-so-sneaky way to give holiday hints to your partner, spouse, or parents when you have your eye on a specific item this Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or birthday … and you can save them money at the same time! It’s a win-win!
