New Service Allows Shoppers to Load Digital Coupons onto Credit Cards
Coupons.com is known for helping people save money, but its newest service may bring those savings to a new level. The company now has a program on its website and mobile app that allows users to upload digital coupons onto their credit cards.
Rather than having to print off their coupons or transfer codes to store savings cards online, consumers can use the new streamlined option to save at the register. The coupons are stored on the credit cards like they would be on store savings cards, so all someone has to do is swipe that card at checkout.
The program is called Coupons.com Card Linked Offers, and it gives shoppers the opportunity to choose where they want to use their coupons. They can use them at home, on their mobile devices or in stores. Once they swipe their cards, they automatically receive the discounts.
Supported cards include credit and debit cards from MasterCard, Visa and American Express. The Coupons.com digital coupons will be accepted in a variety of major restaurants and selected retailers, including Old Navy, Gap, Travelocity and The Body Shop.
“We always look to innovate in ways that help consumers save money. So we are really pleased to unveil our card linked service, which sets itself apart with ease of use, great offers and support for Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards,” said Bruce Sattley, senior vice president of product management at Coupons.com.
