Coupons on Social Media

One of the best ways to find coupons and deals nowadays is through social media.  Companies are always using promotions in order to get individuals to follow or "like" their company online.  In fact it is the number one thing that consumers look for from companies on social media.

The simplest thing you can do is log on to Facebook, search for a company you are interested in and look for a tab on their page that offers coupons.  You will generally have to fill out some information in order to get the coupon, but this is true for most online coupons.  The simplest thing you can do on twitter is search for the word coupon. You will get all the posts that talk about coupons and coupon codes.  Some of these you will have to give your information for, while others you will not.

Coupon aggrigation sites will also point you in the direction of social media coupons that are avaliable. Here is one page to get you started from about.com.  Start your coupon list here and then go search for more. Another such site is Retail Me Not.

Other services such as Foursquare and Yelp! also offer deals to those that frequent the company.  These are less for food though and more for products, services, and activities.  For example when you check in to a business on Foursquare they will often offer you a deal.  Also if you check into a place often you can also get a bonus deal. To find deals on Yelp! just go to Yelp.com and search for a business in your area that you are interested in.  Right on their page it will tell if they are offering a deal.
