Coupon Chief Review

I was recently contacted and asked to review an online coupon source (we're talking coupon codes for online shopping here, not manufacturer's coupons for groceries), Coupon Chief.  I was intrigued, because you know how I love my coupons!!!  I'm also a big fan of shopping online when I can.....I love being able to find what I want and have it shipped directly to my door, all while in my comfy sweatpants sitting in front of my fireplace!  The only downside?  Sometimes it's harder to find the great deals online.  And ohhh, the disappointment when you find what you think is a great deal, and then when you have to add shipping & handling, it ends up being not-so-great!

Enter Coupon Chief!  It is one of the fastest growing coupon sites, with over 250,000 visitors each month.  Their database currently has over 50,000 coupons for over 15,000 stores!

I decided to do a little trial run and tell you about my experience.  Here's some points worth noting:
  • Easy to navigate!  The homepage is visually appealing and includes sections for featured stores, popular coupons, and new coupons.  There is also a clickable search to browse by popular tag (computers, electronics, etc).  
  • The Search Bar:  Front and center, easy to find, right at the top of the homepage.  You can search for a particular store (Target.com), or for a product (laptop).
  • Updated ~ the coupons listed are coded in green (working!), yellow (uknown), or red (not working), so you don't have to waste your time finding deals that may end up in disappointment.  It even shares the success rate percentage!
  • Printables too!  There are some printable coupons available for in-store shopping.
  • New to online shopping & coupon codes?  There is a How It Works page that even includes a video tutorial!
Now granted, there are other coupon sites.  Some of them I've used before, and typically I've had some level of success.  Want to know what I think puts Coupon Chief ahead of the game?  (Besides all the great stuff I've already mentioned?)  The Pays-To-Share program!  Basically, you sign up for an account, upload coupons, and if someone uses your coupon, you get 2% of the sales!  Sweet!  I don't think anybody's going to get rich from uploading coupons, but it could definitely add to a great deal.

So there you have it, folks!  Add Coupon Chief to your bookmarks, and the next time you are doing some online shopping, check it out....you may score a great deal!  (Or at least pay for that pesky shipping & handling fee!)
