A few weeks ago, you may have noticed a new link to the printable coupons under “Coupon Tools” on the left side of this page. Catalina Marketing (yes, that Catalina Marketing) has implemented a soft launch of their new online coupon site, CouponNetwork.com. An official launch is scheduled for November, but in the meantime, Catalina has asked me to get some feedback from readers of my blog regarding their new site.
There are two main areas of the site to check out (located under the tabs at the top of the page:)
Print-at-Home Coupons — Offers printable coupons similar to what you’re used to from printables… select, click and print.
Buy & Save Offers — This one you’ll like! If you register for a free account, clicking this tab will show you current product-specific Catalina deals running at your stores of choice… and wait until you see what you can print at home! …
Catalina alerts! I LOVE this! When shoppers are able to see the current Catalina offers running, it’s going to be a fantastic tool for us to plan shopping trips around these offers.
Note that you will have to register and install their coupon activator plugin to print coupons and alerts, similar to what other sites require. And, when you sign up, you’ll also have the option to select your favorite area stores to view alerts for:
So… if you take a moment to check CouponNetwork.com out, please share your thoughts here by posting a comment. Catalina is reading and looking for your feedback, and this is an opportunity to communicate your thoughts, likes and dislikes directly to them.
What do you, as a shopper, think about Catalina’s new CouponNetwork.com site?
Catalina has been in the business of securing and distributing brand coupons since 1983. Catalina distributes more than $6.5 billion in personalized coupon value to shoppers via in-store printers every year. On average, Catalina’s coupon values are two times higher than those found in Sunday newspapers. Catalina is entering the online coupon space with the goal of increasing the quantity and quality of online coupons available to consumers as well as increasing visibility of in-store programs.
CouponNetwork.com by Catalina is one of two examples of Catalina’s contribution to online savings. Catalina has implemented a soft launch for CouponNetwork and will have an official launch in November 2010.
Additionally, Catalina is powering mobile/email notification of “dollars off” or “buy & save” offers under the name of “YourBucks” with select retail partners (currently ShopRite, A&P, Pathmark, SuperFresh, Waldbaums & Weis Markets.) Shoppers can go to any of the participating retailers’ websites to sign up for YourBucks.
