More Ways to Score Coupons: Mobile Coupons

  • Posted on May 3, 2011 at 2:20 AM

If you live in a small populated region like I do, you miss out on lots of inserts. This past Sunday I was anticipating 5 inserts, but only got 3. I came online to see if I could print the missing coupons out. They weren’t anywhere to be found. Or when they did post them they were gone in to time. Oh so very frustrating!

When I went to make a call today I noticed I had two texts: One from Target and one from Bath and Body Works. Mobile Coupons! Why didn’t I think of that before? More people have cell phones than printers these days, and most people don’t have the time to clip coupons either. So mobile coupons make it easy to have savings delivered right to you.  Here are a few sites you can sign up with to get coupons sent to your phone.

TARGET ~ Text the word “coupons” to 827438  Get exclusive offers up to five times a month via text message on your web-enabled phone. Your first coupon will arrive 1-2 weeks after sign up. When you’re ready to redeem, just show your coupon barcode to the cashier, and with a simple scan your savings are applied.

WALGREENS ~ Text 21525 to get coupons and exclusive deals.

YOWZA ~ You need to download this FREE app to your iPhone/iPod Touch or Blackberry & Android. It will show you all the deals and coupons available in your area.

CELLFIRE ~ When you register with Cellfire you get access to their coupon database free. After choosing the coupons you want you can add them to your store card and non store coupons to your cellphone.

BATH & BODY WORKS ~ Text BBW to 588229 for exclusive offers on your favorite products and expert pampering advice.

SHORTCUTS ~ Electronic Coupons load directly onto your participating store savings cards and are automatically deducted at the checkout when you swipe your card.
P&G ESAVER ~ Electronic Coupons load directly onto your participating store savings cards and are automatically deducted at the checkout when you swipe your card.

While there are surely more sites that offer mobile coupons, these are the only places I know so far. When I come across more I’ll be sure to post them.
