If you look back… way back… into my blog archives, you’ll uncover a not-so-dirty little secret. And that is… when I first started my blog back in 2008, it was simply a way for me to share coupons with my friends and family. You see, I had long been applauded for my deal-finding prowess, and decided to set up a central location where I could post all my epic finds. I was a couponer, loud and proud.
Of course, as my blog transitioned to more of an editorial journal, my frenzy of deal-related posts cooled off. But I never truly lost my frugal nature; I rarely pay full price (I have infinite patience when it comes to waiting for sales), I constantly look for the best promo of the season, and when shopping online, I always, always, ALWAYS look for online coupon codes.
It usually happens like this: I am speeding along in the online checkout process, and then, I see it. The field that says “PROMO CODE”. I am momentarily paralyzed as I wrack my brain for recent emails, searches, Facebook posts – anything that can save me a few extra dollars on my purchase. And then, if my mental catalogue of deals pulls up nothing tangible, I’ll often enlist the expertise of the coupon experts.
Shopster is a brand NEW site that provides Canadian online shoppers with the biggest discounts from the biggest online stores. And here’s what sets them apart from the competition: while other coupon and deal sites think more coupons are better, Shopster believes big discounts from big names are way better! High five if you’re down with that!
A quick glance at the site reveals coupons for SHOP.CA, Canon, GAP, Cafe Press, The Home Depot and more.
Another pet peeve about most coupon sites? Well, they use automated programs to pull information from thousands of different online stores, many of which I’ve never even heard of. In fact, several of these stores don’t even ship to Canada! Really, what a colossal waste of time.
Shopster hand-picks every single store they work with and builds relationships with these stores. It’s all about the partnerships, folks! Then, they select each and every coupon or deal before it gets published to ensure that the discount is big enough to get people excited.
Because you don’t want 15% off at Martha’s Shirt Store, you want 60% off at Macy’s.
At Shopster, they aim to make it happen. I’ve been watching the deals for a few days now, and I’m curious to see how they’ll evolve as more coupons and savings are loaded onto the site. Regardless, it’s always good to have one more outlet that helps you save money. If you’re looking for online coupon codes, pop on over to Shopster and let me know if you find what you’re looking for.
