One thing I’m not the best at is clipping coupons in the Sunday circular. However something I am really good at is scouring the internet looking for coupon codes before I make my purchase. CouponChief.com (http://www.couponchief.com) is a site I was introduced to that helps make that a little easier and less time intensive.
The thing I love most about this site is at the very top there is a search bar in which you can put the name of a store. For example let’s say I was shopping at Toys R Us and wanted to see if there were any Toys R Us coupons. It just so happens that I’m shopping for bikes for my boys for Christmas and Toys R Us does have a 25% coupon code for Schwin bikes that expires 11/24/2010. That is another great feature, you actually can see when the coupon code expires. There is nothing worse then finding a code and thinking you will come back and use it in a couple of days to find it expired a day ago.
Here is a little background into how CouponChief.com works.
Get coupons that work
Don’t get stuck with coupons that either don’t work or are expired. CouponChief invites its members to comment, rate and validate coupons so everyone always has access to the best deals. Once a coupon expires, it gets removed from the site so you only see what’s absolutely valid.
We have it covered
You’ll find codes for thousands of retailers on our site – from computers to apparel, you’ll find it here. Our offerings represent an amazing range of coupon codes for you to browse and use!
Our users help
We know how tough it is to find every coupon out there, so we’ve invited you to contribute. This helps us keep an exhaustive database of all working online coupons. We pay you back!We offer you the ability to share revenue with us! For any coupon you submit, we’ll share 2% of revenue earned from purchases made with that coupon.
While I was searching for Toys R Us and their coupons what is great is as I typed in Toys I found quite a few other stores whose names began with Toys. Besides offering coupon codes CouponChief.com has given me a few other places that I had not heard of to shop. For example I was able to see ToyGlobe Coupons so I headed over to the site to take a look around.
Though they do have a Browse by popular tag I would love to be able to search by product. For example as I mentioned above I’m looking for bikes for my boys for Christmas. I would love to be able to type in bike and find coupons related to the purchase of bikes so I might be able to find the best deal.
I also like that you can rate the coupon as working or not working. I think this is a great way to help keep the site full of only active and working coupons.
Overall I think the site is very useful, and though there is a possibility of me spending MORE money because I can’t pass up a great deal I think that I will use this site often in the future before I make my online purchases. It is kind of like when you are willing to pay a certain price for an item and when they ring it up it turns out to be on sale or less then what you thought.
