If you’re like me you look through the sale papers/ads to see what’s on sale before you head out or where you can get a better deal. The problem is, I sometimes forget to check and then I’m kicking myself when I hit the mall. RetailMeNot has a great iPhone app that can spare me that self inflicted pain by providing me with location-based coupons and deals no matter where I’m shopping. Don’t own an iPhone, RetailMeNot is giving you a chance to win one but more about that later.
RetailMeNot is the largest online coupon site so there’s no need to worry that there won’t be any deals where you live. What’s even better, if you’re visiting relatives or friends out of town RetailMeNot is sure to have deals and coupons to help you save then too.
Interested in the tech talk on how this works. Well, it uses a geo-fence which is a virtual perimeter set around a physical location, in this case a retail location. When the app is enabled and the consumer (you) enter the geo-fenced location (store or shopping mall) the RetailMeNot coupons app is alerted about offers nearby.
Now back to the fun stuff like the features of the app.
Location-based coupons available at more than 500 geo-fenced shopping malls across the country by Black Friday
Map services that identify nearest store locations to redeem in-store coupons
Simple, easy-to-use interface with curated “Hot Deals” from popular stores and access via search to RetailMeNot’s best online and in-store coupons from thousands of merchants
Ability to save coupons for later use, helping consumers organize their shopping excursions
Coupon expiration alerts that message you when your saved coupons are about to expire.
Push notification to consumers of relevant coupons
Ability to add RetailMeNot coupons to Apple’s Passbook
Supported on iPhone 5 and iOS 6: optimized for new screen size and features
My favorite feature is ability to save coupons for later and that I get a message that my saved coupons are about to expire. Much better than sorting through stacks of coupons looking for the right one or holding on to coupons that expired months ago.
If I’ve got your interest and you want to download the RetailMeNot iPhone app you can do it here

Oh, and so the android users don’t feel left out RetailMeNot has an android app but it doesn’t have the new location-based coupons upgrade, yet
