Like online merchants who want it to be easy for you to use coupons on their sites, we at Savings.com want it to be as simple as can be for you to find the coupon code or deal you’re looking for on the product you want or need. We strive to make Savings.com the premiere coupon and deal site on the Internet, and we do this by providing as much coverage of different merchants and their deals as we possibly can.
As far as merchant coverage, Savings.com is tops. We work with huge, recognizable merchants like Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Target, but we also work with smaller, lesser-known merchants like FragranceNet.com, Ice.com, and LobsterGram.com. We want to be sure that no matter where you shop online, Savings.com will have a deal or coupon for you to use on your purchase. We do research into current trends and new merchants to keep up on what types of sites consumers are shopping at and on what types of sites consumers will be shopping at in the future. All of this is done with you in mind. We want you to think of Savings.com as your single stop for all online coupons and deals.
In addition to the bump and bury feature on Savings.com, we also offer a very powerful search feature. We allow users to search for deals in a number of ways. The first way is by category. On the left side of the page while you’re at Savings.com, you’ll see a list of categories. By clicking on one of these categories, you’ll be able to see all the relevant deals to that particular type of product. Some examples of categories are Clothing & Fashion, Flowers & Gifts, and Kids & Baby. A lot of these categories may be broken down further by clicking on the + sign on the right of the main category title. We even create special tabs for seasonal categories like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or Tax Deals. Our goal is for you to be able to find a coupon code or deal for the product you want as easily as possible, and being able to search by category is one way in which we hope to make this possible.
Another way Savings.com allows users to search for a deal is locating the deal by store. Below the category types on the left side of the screen is a feature that allows you to search for a store alphabetically. You may also get a full list of all the stores we have deals or coupons for by clicking the “View All Stores” button below the alphabetical listing. In addition to looking alphabetically, you can also view featured stores by looking at the list of stores on the bottom of that same column on the left side of the page. These stores are featured because we either have really great deals for them or their coupons are getting a lot of action from consumers.
If you’re looking for the deals and coupon codes that are tried and true, you can search for deals based on popularity. There are links to click on to look through deals that are Recently Popular, Top in 7 Days, Top in 30 Days, and Top All Time. The coupons displayed in any of the popular sections are deals that have been bumped into high popularity or that have been used by a large number of users, thereby auto-bumping them to popularity. Note, too, that the deals that are “Top All Time” are still valid. Either someone on our team or a user would mark the deal as invalid if it was no longer usable. Being able to find deals by popularity allows you to see what the hot deals are on our site. A deal will not show up in any of the popular sections unless it’s getting some attention, and it would not be getting attention unless there’s something noteworthy about it. In my experience, noteworthy deals equal money saving deals.
If there’s something in particular that you’re deal hunting for, a good place to start looking is the Newly Added section. If you’ve been waiting for a deal on a particular product or store, this is the first section you’ll want to check. Immediately after a deal or promo code is processed and verified by our staff, it goes into the Newly Added section. This is also a good section to check if you know that a merchant you’re interested in tends to put restrictions on the number of times their codes can be used. Be sure to be one of the first to use it by finding it first in the Newly Added section on Savings.com.
A final search tool we provide is the ability to search for just free shipping offers. While shipping costs don’t seem outrageous, those $4.95s and $12.99s add up. Many, many merchants offer free shipping incentives to their customers as a way of enticing them to shop online instead of in stores. Occasionally, a free shipping offer is worth far more than just a few dollars. Some merchants that sell big-ticket items like televisions, appliances, and furniture offer free shipping from time to time. Not only does this eliminate the hassle of having to go make a big decision in a high-pressure sales environment, but it also eliminates costly shipping charges that can sometimes be $100 or more! On a rare occasion, a merchant will offer free shipping and free haul away of your old appliance. When you find offers like these, take advantage of them. You’ll be grateful you don’t have to deal with the added cost of delivery and the added bother of having to figure out how to get rid of your old item.
If you’re busy, like oh so many of us are, and if you don’t have a ton of time to look around for killer deals on Savings.com, you can sign up for email alerts. These email alerts are sent every once in a while (not too frequently…no one, including us, likes inbox spam), and they’re meant to inform you of amazing deals and short term offers that we have posted on the site. We don’t want to you to miss a single savings opportunity, and our occasional email alerts let us keep you informed of the best deals we’ve got.
In addition to email alerts, Savings.com also offers email newsletters to its members. These newsletters are sent out monthly, and they contain a small number of featured coupons. Our newsletter delivery often coincides with holidays, so much of the time, the deals featured in the newsletter will be for holiday-specific products. If you’re interested in finding the best Valentine’s Day offers, the best Mother’s day offers and more, the Savings.com newsletter is a great place to find them.
The final tab in the top right corner of the Savings.com page is the “My Account” tab. When you click here, you’ll be able to manage your email alert and newsletter subscriptions. You can also change your Savings.com password from this page and find links to Savings.com FAQs and the Contact Us pages.
