New Page for Coupon Sites?
I think this page only talks about coupons as a general topic and that there should be a seperate new page for coupon sites similar to how there's a page for Comparison shopping website. Can anyone confirm whether the page would be warranted under wikipedia inclusion guidelines? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Karthikkumarsunder (talk • contribs) 19:22, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
- Possibly. You'd have to establish notability and have some good references that discuss the topic. It wouldn't work if it was just a list of coupons websites, with very little discussion, history or sourced analysis. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 11:22, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Function According to Larson and Lopez (2003) coupon is basically a method for a marketing system that connects between the advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and customers through the monitoring system issues varies types of coupons. Which the customers can purchase discounted items, rebate when buying a products and win prizes. Manufacturers can use coupons as a method to attract new customer to participate in merchandise reward programs.
Grocery Coupon In New Zealand, the ways customers find and receive the coupons are slightly different than the United States’ grocery coupons method. As for many of the grocery stores in New Zealand, the coupons can be found on the receipts after the purchase. Coupons are placed on the reverse side of the grocery store’s register rolls for example, New World supermarket. Customers can find varies type of offers including discount for movies, buy one get one free and local service business’s discount. Other than that the grocery stores also offer a discount on fuel for the customer who spend at certain amount of money within the store. For example, Pak n Save has their own fuel stations that accept the coupon from their supermarket. If customer spend more than forty dollars then they will receive a coupon of six cents discount per litre of fuel. This method of the use of coupon tends to draw the customers to spend at the grocery stores that benefit them.
Another example of coupon method a lot of customers pay attention to the money back from grocery stores coupon. Countdown supermarket offers the customers fifteen dollars back when they collect the point up to two hundred points. Every single ten dollars spend within store customers earn reward points, and as they collect up to two hundred points, they will be rewarded with fifteen dollars coupon to spend in store. They also give out the special deals which acts like coupon but customers will only find out when visit in store. For example, at the shelves of chocolate bar during the promotion period they provided, there will be a coupon sign by the shelves showing customer the deals. Buy three chocolate bars for five dollars or a dollar and ninety-nine cents each. Regarding this method of the store, customers are most likely will be grabbing the deals as they will see it as beneficial to them and just like coupon, they get to save their money.
Apple watch app coupons Apart from mobile app coupons, one of the newest ways of deliver methods is the coupon app for the Apple watch that has just been released. The statistics show the estimate number of Apple watches sold up to the date of 11th May 2015 was around seven million (Smith, 2016). Along with more than 50% of smartwatch sales in 2015, it is clear to say that perhaps the new Apple watches will eventually become a big hit just like their IPhone. It will be common for customer to make the use out of the watch and of course, download the apps.
The provider who was the first to release the Apple watch coupon app is Valpak. The app claims to be very simple, convenient and easy for consumers to use. It will be just like any other types of coupons. Within a 25 miles radius, the app is able to show the consumers any access to coupons for the stores and services in the area. On just a tap on their wrist, the consumers will be able to find out all the information. This will also benefits the consumers to find out about new coupon deals that they may have not heard about or seen. Work the same way as mobile app coupon, the consumers can redeem them very easily (Marketline, 2015).

Please change the following section to read as follows:
Mobile app coupons
A mobile app coupon can be a regular coupon for redemption (discount value or discount percentage) used at checkout distributed by the app-makers, a rebate coupon from a mobile app, or unique, personal sharing codes owned by each user to recruit new users with referral benefits (e.g. Airbnb, Uber). The latter form requires personal sharing on behalf of users to their personal networks. Mobile app coupons that offer a rebate, such as ibotta, savingstar, and Checkout 51,and GroceryiQ, can be used in conjunction with manufacturer and store coupons to enhance your savings and often have overlapping savings. These apps require that you select the offer prior to making your purchase and then submit a copy of your receipt to receive a rebate typically deposited into your paypal account.

Internet coupons vs mobile coupons vs digital coupons (and what we call them)
In the Delivery Methods section the difference between essentially physical or "print" coupons and digital coupons is discussed, however, digital coupons are split up as "Internet", "mobile" and "mobile app" coupons. I'd suggest that the section be revised to simply include an explanation of physical coupons, their forms and sources versus digital coupons and their forms and sources. Digital coupons are naturally able to be transmitted over the Internet and mobile devices are naturally able to access these digital coupons via the Internet so the difference is semantics and the explanations are redundant. This should help clarify and simplify this section.
In the current paragraph about so called "Internet coupons" there is a list of names that online retailers use to refer to their coupons. Is this listing necessary? And if so, what are "source codes" and who calls coupons that? I can't find any references to this term as a coupon on the first couple pages of Google search results and not even Wiktionary defines "sources codes" as anything remotely close to a redeemable voucher. I suggest that this whole list be removed for the sake of concision.

The article refers to retailers providing digital coupon systems. This is akin to writing that retailers provide credit card payments. In actuality, Digital Coupons ride competing networks similarly to credit cards. The three main companies in the space are Quotient (fna Coupons Inc.), YouTech and Inmar. These companies all offer entry points for digital coupon content and retailers sign up for (generally) one network to subscribe to to get their content and receive remuneration for display, selection and redemption thereof.
The key difference in the distribution methods might be left out for concision. The interesting thing about digital couponing is the general requirement for "basket data" (the list of items purchased) to be matched against a digital wallet (selected discounts). This inherently brings with it nuances in targeting, collaborative filtering, bounce-back behaviour and future preference management all based on the analysis of an identity (loyalty or phone # for example) with purchase data. This makes such systems or networks very interesting to companies interested in treating the network like a digital ad network with all of its constituent components.
