Not a decade, but few years back when coupon concept hit the Indian market, numerous opinions and doubts were tagged after such as, ‘coupons are a waste of time; they’re too much of hassle; do they really help save money; they’re just another underhand marketing strategy’ and so on..

Save On Shopping

Even I used to think in same way until I started using coupons few years ago and now I know better!

Picture this: I was standing in the queue at the cash counter getting ready for my turn. I pulled out my wallet full of coupons. The elderly person standing behind me sighed aloud. She looked quite annoyed as I had handed the cashier an entire booklet of coupons, which slowed down the billing process. I smiled at the old lady and said, “Lots of coupons I know, but I’m saving money!”

After a few minutes when the coupons were scanned, to the amazement of the lady I had saved an unbelievable amount from the actual bill. Thanks to my coupons!!

Well, today with the onset of online coupons, one can not only save money but save one’s wallet from clutter. Plus, online coupons are always time consuming.

How the concept of coupons changed
As the concept of discount tickets have upgraded from something you used to cut from the newspaper to downloading printable online deals and easy-to-flash smartphone downloads, people in India are slowly clinging towards this avant garde perk.

Mass printed coupons were already a rage in western countries during the 80s and the 90s. In Asian countries, especially in India people became familiar with them only in late 90’s. People used to cut the coupon from the newspaper and by the time they remembered using them, the tickets had already expired.

Your takeaways

  • Online coupons are often advertised as being free, but it’s not true always as they are projected
  • There are numerous ways to be benefited from the use of online coupons
  • Listing out what all products you’re planning to shop can be the best possible way to benefit from coupons

When people find an offer of BOGO, say on toothpaste or any cosmetic product, they will surely consider to use that particular discount code to make use of the offer.

Flaunt your shopping savvy
