The rise of the Free Stuff Revolution is certainly a sign of these times, everyone wants and needs to squeeze every bit of value from their dollar and retailers have rightly responded quickly to this and are often bending over backwards to get you to buy with them, after all the internet is such a massive marketplace and companies will fight to get your business and keep it. Introducing coupons and vouchers which can only be good news for us.
The world of coupons is nothing new but the growth of online coupons and vouchers is set to explode in the coming months and we consumers are in the perfect position to save save and save. Coupon clipping is no longer the domain of the spend-thrifty; a recent poll indicated that college grads and bigger earners are more likely to get busy with the scissors. Its not really surprising though as the majority of coupons offered in the papers are for brand-named products and big ticket items, with stores’ own brand products rarely being discounted in this way.
So whats the future for this? More coupons, more discounts and more free stuff. Shoppers will buy strategically to take advantage of this and visit Free-stuff and Coupon sites before handing over the cash.
