CouponBirds takes a place in the upper echelons of the money saving website. They have discounts, coupons, free shipping offers and some exclusive deals. Despite its young age, the site is growing rapidly and looks very promising.
A Short Story of The Company
The concept of CouponBirds first appeared in 2012. The reason the developers decided to start a money saving site was due to the fact that searching for the offers they required took ages at the majority of the sites. They wanted to make a simple interface and a user-friendly site. They looked for investments and 3 years ago they’ve completed their service. It paid off since they have become very popular in the three years of the project life.
CouponBirds has a tiny amount of advertisements for a site with such an audience. And the audience is truly considerable. The site gets at least 750,000 unique views per month and more than 25,000 views a day. At some point, the site had more than 3 million views a month. Such statistic factors place it among the first 4000 of the US sites.
The layout of the CouponBirds is quite simple. There is a top menu used to switch between different offer sections . It includes coupons by brand, free shipping and exclusive offers. Current holiday deals are there as well. When you open one of the sections, you can switch between categories. At the bottom of the site , you will find different holiday sections that are not active right now but if you want to plan for the upcoming sales, you can refer to them since the majority of the shops offer similar deals each year.
What wares and services you can get
CouponBirds operates with a considerable assortment of different goods. They mostly specialize in different products. Services and entertainment aren’t really their areas, however,there is a corresponding categories with some offers. The main sale sections include clothing, food , health products, beauty and jewelry, home and garden, travel, and other categories. Oh, and do not forget the free shipping. It is a whole different deal area.
Now, let’s see how different offers are provided. The CouponBirds site management works day and night to find respectable clients and provide the best promo codes. Apart from that, they have started out an affiliate campaign with some shops. Meaning they trust the popularity of the site so much that they are willing to put promotion offers exclusively at CouponBirds. Oh, and to any of the businesses that want to promote their products. You can always submit your own coupons to the site.
So, how do you get the deal?
Well, it’s perfectly simple. You click on the offer and a new tab opens. It contains the promo. And to make things even more convenient for the user, the old tab opens the site for the offer so you won’t have to google it separately. That’s it. That simple. Fortunately, you won’t even have to register and get those pesky emails that offer the best deals every day.
I personally browse the Internet quite rarely. I usually browse the feed of my facebook or instagram. I find news and sometimes even shop offers there. If I like a shop, I sign up for its facebook page or follow it in twitter. However, a lot of shops neglect social media. That’s unfortunate since they lose a lot of potential clients. Well, CouponBirds is one of the progressive companies here. They are active on twitter, instagram, facebook, and pinterest. You can keep track of their offers everywhere.
Things To Consider for Improvement
So, here I am going to write down a couple of issues with the site. Personally, the biggest issue for me is the layout. The whole categorization isn’t exactly instinctive. There are free shipping and exclusive offers that are categorized by the sort of goods they offer but the brands and holiday sections don’t seem to be the same way. And I can’t look up all the offers for jewelry for example. The other issue is that the offers are not tagged, it seems. If is type in “rings” in the search, I get only the offers that contain the searched name in their title. However, ring offers that don’t have the word “rings” but are still about rings are not found. The last issue is the tab with the site popping up. If I want to return to the previous page in CouponBirds, I’ll have to leave that site and look it up again.
So, let’s sum it all up. CouponBirds isn’t one of the leviathans of the industry yet but it surely strives to be one. The site is well maintained, all issues and bugs are operatively fixed. The management introduces new features (such as submitting your own coupons) and updates the offers daily. They work with the majority of the US stores and have some exclusive and free shipping deals. The interface of the site is as simple as possible and no registration is required. Sure, there are things to fix but I’d say that they are not critical. CouponBirds will suit a lot of customers . I’m going to go on a whim and predict that the more elderly people will be very comfortable using it for the simplicity of the browsing.
