I’m always looking for new ways to save money on toy purchases, so when I learned about CouponChief.com, I asked the founders to write a guest post to tell PlayLibrary readers what makes their site different from other coupon sites. Following is the guest post that Gary Gray and Kyle Hoggatt, founders of CouponChief.com, wrote in response to my request…..
With talks of an economic recession, gas prices at an all time high, and food prices on the rise, many families have had to tighten their purse strings. In this economic state, many people are having trouble affording their everyday needs and do not have much left over for other items such as clothes, books or toys. This is where coupons and deals make such a difference in buying decisions and helping people afford items they otherwise could not.
As founders of CouponChief.com we wanted to create a site that would allow users to easily find discounts at the retailers they love for the products they need. Our philosophy is you should never pay full price when there are better deals out there. We are proud to say that we have been successful in our endeavors, as several of our users have reported huge savings. Active user Ron Weidemann visits CouponChief.com before every online purchase, both business and personal, and saves about $10,000 annually. To help other users experience the same savings we recently redesigned the site to make it easier than ever to use and navigate.
One great new feature is our tag based categories which allows for more niche searches on the site. This helps our users quickly and easily narrow their searches. For instance, Play Library readers can search for retailers that carry the toys they find on this site simply by entering “toys.” Coupons from stores that have previously been tagged as toy retailers will be included in the results. Additionally, we list our most popular coupon categories right on the home page so with just one click users can find a list of retailers that carry exactly what they are looking for.
The other great thing about CouponChief is there are no annoying printable coupons. We provide online coupon codes that can be used at a variety of online retailers. To redeem these coupons you just have to enter the code at checkout. Not only will you save gas driving to the mall, but you won’t drain your ink cartridge on coupons that may not work at the store once you get there. The site also features an informational video explaining how to use online coupon codes, which provides a great overview for first time online coupon code users.
One of our main goals is to build a community of CouponChief users that help each other find the best deals on the Internet. People enjoy sharing savings offline, and CouponChief is enabling its users to help each other save money online as well. Now users can submit coupons to the site. Also users can rank and comment on coupons, so if they find a really great deal they can provide feedback which will tell other users about the great savings. CouponChief aims to engage our users so they can continue coming back to the site and finding more of the best coupons on the internet.
To top things off we are currently giving away and iPhone 3G every other day for the next month. All you have to do to enter is share the savings by emailing three of your friends about CouponChief.com! Visit CouponChief.com and start sharing the discounts and saving money today!
