A new Web site offers Canadians an essential
service this holiday season – a comprehensive list of coupon codes that can be
typed into discount boxes seen during the checkout phase on retail sites such
as Home Outfitters and Sears.
As the economy slumps, consumers are searching for the best deals.
Retailers, in turn, are relying heavily on discounts and promotions to pique
buyer interest and boost sales. At Grabacode.com, shoppers can find coupon
codes on the Internet in one place, eliminating frustrating Google searches to
find the right code for a specific site.
“We noticed there weren’t any good online resources where people could go
and quickly find a coupon code that could save them money,” said Evan Falk, a
Web developer in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “So we came up with a site that doesn’t
have spam or inaccurate codes, and is easy to use.”
Grabacode lists coupon codes for everything from clothing and cell phones
to computers and travel deals. It’s the online equivalent of the coupons
traditionally found in newspapers and mailing flyers. At Grabacode, shoppers
can find a coupon code that gives $10 off a $50 purchase at Sears.ca and the
code for a 10 per cent discount at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
To ensure consumers receive the latest information, Grabacode is
monitored and updated every day as real-life shoppers and computer technology
add new codes to the list. Consumers can subscribe by e-mail or RSS and get
updates immediately when a new coupon code has been discovered. They can also
flag codes that are no longer working.
