Welcome to Couponing 2.0! The coupon industry is undergoing exciting changes right now, as coupons are now being used by more people more often in more categories than ever before.
While loyalty programs are becoming more complicated and less effective, coupon use is increasing at incredible rates. In addition, consumers are looking to save money wherever possible, and as they seek out more convenient ways to so, digital couponing has been gaining momentum. In fact, 45 million Americans are now using digital coupons.
Naturally, as the coupon industry is evolving and changing, innovation is bringing new ideas to the table to make life easier for consumers, retailers, and advertisers all at once. The most exciting of those, in our humble opinion, is credit-linked offers. CLOs are the next frontier in convenient, hassle-free couponing solutions.
