Have you heard of Offermatic? It’s a free service which tracks your debit or credit card purchases and then offers you discounts and deals based upon what you routinely purchase. Here’s what Lifehacker says:
The best discounts are for things you actually buy. Free web service Offermatic uses your credit card, through the same back-end as Mint.com, to offer 40-90 percent discounts on products similar to what you’ve already purchased.
If you’re not squeamish about providing financial information to financial scanning sites like Mint.com, Offermatic is a pretty sweet deal. You register your credit cards with Offermatic through their secure system, which then scans your purchases and spits back out high-discount offers from their advertisers, made to match your interests. You won’t necessarily get coupons for the exact stores you shop at, but the examples seem to be highly related.
I’m curious: Would you be willing to provide them your financial information in order to get a coupons and deals in return?
Thanks for the heads’ up on this, Jason!
