Introducing our new Retail Sales Coupon Database!

Retail Sales Coupon Database

Many of you have fallen in love with our Grocery Store Coupon Database so you’ll be excited to know that we now have a new feature on our site — the Retail Sales Coupon Database, powered by SaleHoot.

This Retail Sales Database will keep you updated on coupons and offers for online stores that I know many of you regularly shop at. Be sure to check it out before making an online purchase to see if there’s a coupon for what you’re planning to buy.

Head over here to check it out. You can access it all the time by click on the Retail Sales button in the header above on Shot 2015-07-27 at 5.19.40 PM

You can search by coupon type, sale offer, or sale category.

Retail Coupon Database

And/or you can search by store name.

You can thumbs up any sales you love or share the sales on Facebook or Twitter.

Please note: We’re just testing this out over the next little bit and hope to add more features to it down the road. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.
