CoolSavings Review

Author by

CoolSavings separates its online coupons into four categories: printable coupons, coupon codes, deals and free stuff. You can find local deals, grocery coupons and promotional offers galore from this online coupon service.

The Coupons section of this website is full of grocery coupons that you can print and use at grocery and big box stores. As you digitally clip coupons down the list, they're saved at the top in a coupon bank of sorts that also shows you how much you'll be saving. Then you just print them using CoolSavings' downloadable printer app that works with your printer at home.

In the Deals category, most of the offers are from Restaurant.com. You can find other offers from other retailers at CoolSavings, but they're few and far between. The coupon code section has several shopping categories at the top. Click on one and you can find pages of offers. CoolSavings' offers could change week to week or seasonally, though. Also, the majority of the coupons here are not actual coupon codes, but click-to-save offers.

The grocery coupons come directly from Coupons.com, so you will actually have some of the same features that you would have using the other coupon website, including a savings card. A savings card is like your membership card to a grocery store, such as Safeway. You must have an account to use the savings card feature, which allows you to input your card number. Once you have done this, you are entitled to coupons that you can only access if you have a savings card. These are loaded onto your card and are automatically applied to your total transaction at the store.

The Free Stuff tab is mostly bare. You might find a survey to take for a chance to win something, or an ad for something or other, but this isn't a freebies section that actually offers you anything for free. CoolSavings does offer a feature that most coupon websites don't: price comparison. You can type in a product in the search bar and up pops several of those products with their prices. It's a bit misleading, though, as all of the products come from only a handful of merchants.

For basic savings ideas and tips, this coupon website has a variety of helpful articles about topics like how to save money on back-to-school shopping, eating out, grocery shopping, pet care and travel. You can find a FAQs section for basic information, and an online form that you can fill out if you have any questions.

CoolSavings offers printable coupons from Coupons.com, coupon codes and click-to-save offers, along with a price comparison feature for a variety of products.
