Most Canadians want to save money when they can. Clipping print coupons is an effective way to do that, but you have to go through volumes of paper to find one you need, cut it out, carry it around with you, and then remember to use it during checkout before it expires. That’s a lot of work to save fifty cents on laundry detergent.
Coupon apps make it a breeze for today’s busy Canadian households to save money with couponing. You can search for the exact coupon you want in seconds, then use it later with your smartphone or upload your receipt for “cash back”. Discounts for online shopping are even easier to apply.
Digital couponing has become very popular, as the use of smartphones has grown.
“The value of digital coupon redemptions will surge to $91 billion by 2022,” predicts a report by Jupiter Research. “Mobile will account for nearly 80% of all coupon redemptions by 2022.”
TIP: If you shop in-store, make sure you ask about price-matching policies!

Does anyone clip coupons anymore? Not ME! One of these days I’ll add up what I save every year with couponing apps because it’s ALOT! Its so easy I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t do it now. It’s just a matter of making sense of cents!
The whole coupon thing is so in need of an upgrade. I’m surprised they even still have paper coupons! Apps make so much more sense. Nobody leaves home without their phone anymore.
I have a phone but use it as a phone. I pay as I go and do not have apps on my phone. As a senior on a limited budget I have to watch what I spend.
do everyone have to accept the deals at stores or can they say no? I think coupon policies for each store applies.
I like to save every penny I can!! It’s fun & challenging to dig up good deals and I save several hundred dollars every year. Why not? 🙂
