Printed vs. Online Coupons: How to Maximize Savings When Shopping for Clothing


You want to buy the perfect outfit. You have your eyes set on a particular brand and even a specific look or color. If you have really been searching for the best deal, you might have even streamlined your list to the point where you even know exactly what type of fabric you want as well.

Now the time has come for you to pay, but you are interested in finding the most effective way to save the most money with a coupon. Will you go with a printed coupon or an online virtual coupon?Printed Vs Online coupons

The Advantages of Printed Coupons

If you are interested in printed coupons, there are quite a few advantages and benefits that can be explored and enjoyed. For instance, saving printed coupons is a lot easier to do than virtual coupons – especially if you already have a coupon book that is specifically designed to store and display the printed coupons. Online coupons from site like ChameleonJohn can also be stored and saved, but not as easily and efficiently as a printed coupon promo.

The Advantages of Online Coupons

More and more consumers are choosing to go with online coupons and online coupon promo codes when shopping for a great deal primarily because of the increasing popularity of mobile devices and Internet usage whenever they are shopping.

One study shows that a considerable number of consumers (over 30 percent) will even search for online coupon codes and other types of online coupons while they are shopping to make sure they are not missing anything. Therefore, even though a printed coupon promo might be easier to save and store, the average online coupon code has a higher availability rate and is much easier to access on the go.

The Numbers Do Not Lie

When it comes to identifying the most popular option between a printed online coupon code and online coupon promos, you need to keep in mind that the numbers do not lie. The most popular option between printed and online coupons is definitely the online coupon. The average redemption rate for printed coupons each year is less than one percent. On the other hand, according to Statistic Brain, the average redemption rate for online coupons is close to 300 percent.

Accessibility, availability and convenience all play a significant role when it comes to determining the winner between printed and online coupons. However, there is still an important point that needs to be taken into consideration when weighing printed vs. online coupons.

Harnessing the Full Power of Couponing

Weighing printed and online coupons against one another to determine the best is actually not the best approach to take. Even though it is true that online coupon codes might be more popular than printed coupons, you should never pit one against the other if you are interested in maximizing your savings. The best approach to take as a savvy and frugal customer is actually to combine the two forces together. Make sure that you save your printed coupons and use them along with online coupon codes as well. In most cases, you might be able to combine multiple savings in one way, shape or form.

For example, you can find a great sale or even create your own promotional price by using a printed coupon. However, using an online coupon code in addition to that great deal will only add to the amount of money that is being saved.

The Bottom Line

It is not a competition – or, at least, it should not be a competition. Online coupons and printed coupons can both effectively be used as effective savings tools when searching for a great deal on the perfect outfit.

      Yeah Jinny. RetailMeNot is quite interesting but they’ve been at the other side of Google these days…it seems buzz is getting down on them lately. Some cool guys are just springing forth. Let’s see what happens while we cross our legs 😀

      Hey Jami,

      Thanks for agreeing to the point and for your contribution, the only set of people who doesn’t use online coupon are people who simply don’t shop online or use the internet at all.

      Great to have you.
