BugMeNoLonger, Broken Coupon Codes
October 5, 2007 11:41 AM   Subscribe

I love coupon codes, but I hate having to dig through all the ad pages with broken ones to find one that works. Behold: RetailMeNot.com, a site that ranks codes by success rate.

You know what happened with the last coupon post, right?

I know, and I swear, I wanted to post this before I saw that, just because I thought it was cool. It's managed to save me a lot of digging, that's for sure.

Isn't there a rule about providing free OJ when we do one of these?

Or are there mushroom coupons?

Just noticed yesterday that the Gap, Inc. stores asked Retailmenot not to post coupon codes from users, and the site complied. (Not sure how many other websites this applies to). Kind of a bummer, as you know there's always going to be at least a couple of codes that apply to almost any order from any of their websites. They're findable elsewhere, of course. Just an observation.

Definitely koo-pon
posted by mrnutty at 1:16 PM on October 5, 2007


TPS: this does look like a useful site, thank you for having the guts to post it despite your knowledge of the OJ comments that would follow (lol). I do believe that the coupon selection would be improved, however, by this. (sheet created by dmd, original by cortex).

yhbc: Since you seem to have missed the goodness that was this, I will offer it up again.

Pfft, I'm too macho for this post- OooOOoo, buy three tubes of Mister Blister, get one free!

Actually, his comment shows that he did not miss that post.

koo-pon. Usually. Unless it's for beans, and then I overthink it to kyu-pon.

Weird, I was about to post this two days ago when I got 20% off on a AE panties order, but I decided it was too doubly.

kyoo-pon
posted by oddman at 2:13 PM on October 5, 2007


"Kyoo-pon"? Like "key-ew-pon"? Odd.

"Kyoo-pon"? Like "key-ew-pon"? Odd.

More like q-pon, which is how I say it. And I just realized that looks like some horrifying q-tip tampon monster.

Q-Pons. Now that’s a market waiting to be broken into.

Would it be inappropriate for me to mention the url of the competitor to RTMN that I work for?

I'd like to see it, sequential.
posted by LittleMissCranky at 4:21 PM on October 5, 2007


sequential, in the comment thread, it should be fair game. However, I am known known for having made some legen-waitforit-dary errors in protocol so YMMV... Anyway, I am interested in your coupon codes and would like to subscribe to your RSS feed...

Koo-pin, if Ron White's to be believed.
posted by Pope Guilty at 7:51 PM on October 5, 2007


It's q-pons 'round these parts, too. Thanks for the link TPS, as I usually just google for "(insert online retailer here) discount coupons" before transactions. However, I would still like to see sequential's work url, if it gets posted.
posted by thatothrgirl at 8:16 PM on October 5, 2007


The coupon site I mentioned is Deal Locker. The newest product to come of my foray into the retail savings space is Buy Discount Gift Cards. The latter went live just today.

And while I'm linking to companies I work for: Poll: koo-pon or kyoo-pon?

Note to admins: please nuke both of these comments if they are, in fact, violations.

Stop cringing, sequential. It's always been perfectly fine to self-link in comments that are on-topic.
posted by mediareport at 9:53 PM on October 5, 2007


Cringing, though, is a bannable offense.

*clips coupon*

Re pronunciation: s we get those little SuperCoups mailings here at my apartment, right? And one of my roommates says it "super kyoops."

That is clearly not what they intended.

Anyway. Yeah, this is a cool idea!
posted by danb at 11:16 PM on October 5, 2007


I am not so much a cringer as I am a clencher.

*unclenches*
posted by sequential at 8:43 AM on October 6, 2007


I thought this was about capons and they get clipped too.
