Hey, times are tough. We’re all looking to pinch pennies, and more of us are going online to do it.
According to a recent article on InternetRetailer.com:
74% of consumers search multiple online coupon sources each week, and 25% spend up to an hour shopping for the best online discount deals.
From a dollar off of laundry detergent to a half-price romantic getaway, services like Bing, Groupon, Living Social, RetailMeNot (and on and on and on) are ready to help you save. And we’re definitely hooked. Here are some statistics, according to Bing:
- 47% use more local deals and coupons than they did a year ago
- 63% search up to 10 different coupons sites each week
- 11% look at more than 10 coupon sites
- 81% of moms search multiple sources each week
According to the survey, about half of us spend more than 15 minutes a week scoping out the deals, and about 25% of us spend between 30 and 60 minutes.
