Remember the days when you’d go to a web site, find something you like, go to checkout and then see the promo code box? You’d freak out and start frantically searching web sites like 9malls.com or RetailMeNot for coupon codes only to realize there are none available. A couple named Alice and Bryan Payne felt your pain and began developing the next generation of coupon/discount shopping, but this time instead of you searching for the coupon the coupon finds you.

Yes, you heard right the coupon code actually finds you using location based tracking. Alice and Bryan Payne were avid seekers of the best deal. King and Queens of discount shopping, but the pursuit of finding the best price started to become a full time job. They wanted and needed a faster way of finding deals, but there simply wasn’t anything out there. That’s why in 2014, Payne founded Skout Deals, which offers a free location-based deals app.

Sounds Great, But What Does The App Do Exactly?

“We want to take all the deals from all the brick-and-mortar merchants and let you automatically find deals on items nearby,” Payne says. “Or you can save what you’re looking for — a certain restaurant or a pair of pants — and we notify you when there’s a deal.”

Today the app gives users a whopping 50,000 deals per day! That’s more deals that you could redeem in a lifetime most likely. In August, Skout Deals signed a nationwide partnership with Walmart and Best Buy.

Who Uses This App

The whole concept of coupon codes from paper to internet I think has gone a bit stale, people are desperately searching for an easier way. For this reason the app is taking off in a big way. Skout Deals has 100,000 members nationwide, including 13,000 in Austin TX alone. They say everything is bigger in Texas, including the discounts and user base.

How Does This Company Make Money?

“The company makes money from merchants, with rates ranging from $69 to $199 a month. There is also a free plan that includes one deal a month and no analytics or social media promotions.”

Who Are They

“Who they are: Payne is a veteran yearbook industry executive, where he was a pioneer of online yearbook creation web apps. He was most recently president of Picaboo Yearbooks, which sells online yearbook software.”


100,000 users may sound like a lot, but in order to get this thing even bigger its going to take a lot of work. One problem is getting people to download the app and second it’s getting merchants interested in the product. Help make Skout Deals even more of a success download their app today and if you are a small business they offer a 30 day free trial.

8 Brilliant Ways to Save Money on Restaurants Bills

How often have you suffered a great expenditure when out on a shopping and had a dinner at a costly restaurant that ultimately ended up making a big hole in your pocket? It is not that the restaurant was expensive, but a little bit of strategic approach could have proved favorable for your budget and controlling expenses. If you are yet to explore the tricks to save money on restaurants bill, read on.

Conduct Search: Some major restaurants such as Pizza Hut have online ordering facilities. Use the menu card of various restaurants to find the details of the prices of different items. This will give you a fair idea as to which place offers food at reasonable rates. If there are coupon facilities available, then you have the additional benefit of saving more money.

Sign Up for Free Newsletters: If you are too particular on dining at any particular restaurant due to the inclination to the taste, you can sign up for free newsletters at websites where information on restaurants are available. These newsletters contain discount coupons, vouchers, newly launched recipes, prices and much more. This can be beneficial for locating a restaurant that offers food at reasonable prices and also planning your budget.

Use Coupon Codes: This is the most fabulous ways to save money going out to eat without compromising with desired food item ordering. Some sources such as LiveSocial and Groupon are the storehouse on coupon codes for every major restaurant. Print your coupons and you can comfortably order your food at a nearest restaurant of your choice.

Explore Happy Hour Offers: Many restaurants have happy hours during a certain point of time in the day say in the afternoon. The meals and package dishes are available at special discounted prices during this time period.

Subscribe to Restaurant Email Lists: Due to high competition, the majority of restaurant authorities invite the customers to share their emails. Subscribing to the email lists will entitle you to the latest menu additions, offers, happy hours, special seasonal offers, food festival offers and much more that you can cherish.

Pay through Credit Cards: The credit card companies often privilege their customers with up to 5 to 20 percent discount on restaurant bills. Check if your credit card is acceptable at the particular restaurant or not.

Take Desserts and Beverages at a Separate Destination: This is a major trick you often miss. The regular restaurants may not have a great stock of desserts. But the prices are relatively high. Hence, you can move out after the main course dinner or lunch to a nearest ice cream parlor where you can find several flavors and options at a cheaper price. You can alternatively try to visit a small coffee shop for tea or coffee to save your bills.

Be Decisive While Ordering: Some people order excessively and then waste a lot of food and money too. Taking multiple courses is not a good idea as the kids may leave the food due to loss of appetite over a soup or first course options.

The above mentioned strategies are ideal for saving a great deal of money on your restaurant bills. Moving out for a lunch or dinner with your family is always a great idea to keep them happy. Now that there are lot many options available to you, you can always explore ways to use tricks to get the best deals.

Biggest Cyber Monday and Black Friday Deals: How to Get Them

Biggest Cyber Monday and Black Friday Deals: How to Get Them

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are around the corner, and many of you are likely gearing up for the crowds and looking for ways to stay ahead of the frenzy. For Cyber Monday and Black Friday newbies, they are just two of the busiest shopping days of the year. Black Friday (November 23 this year) is the day after Thanksgiving and officially launches the holiday shopping season. The term “Black Friday” was originally used to describe insane traffic after Thanksgiving in Philadelphia, but later on it meant the point at which retailers started to profit (to be “in the black”). Cyber Monday (November 26 this year) is the Monday that follows Black Friday and was conceived by retailers in 2005 to make people shop online.

Black Friday, Cyber Monday

Needless to say, the clever marketing ploy was a success—it’s one of the best days of the year to get incredible discounts on your online purchases. In fact, comScore reported that Cyber Monday 2010 was the highest spending day of that year. And it’s not only in the U.S.—Cyber Monday has spread to countries like the U.K. and Chile. So what can a shopper expect on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Retailers open very early, usually at four in the morning. Some major stores even open at midnight and stay open overnight! Also, expect a lot of serious discounts, offers, promotions and deep cuts on everything from shoes to electronics.

How to Get Deals?

It pays to have a game plan for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, especially if you’re going to be hitting up a lot of local retailers. First, know what you can and cannot afford. Just because everything is half off doesn’t mean you should run yourself into debt. Remember that a deal is no longer a deal as you rack up interest charges on credit card purchases. For Black Friday, have a budget, make a list and stick to the list. Get the most important item in your list first, and be prepared for not getting all deals. Leave the kids at home—the lines are long, the stores are packed and people are grumpy. Do take a friend or your hubby with you (great for holding your spot in line in case nature calls).

Don’t worry if you can’t go out; there are lots of sales and deals online. Our favorite is Amazon’s week-long Black Friday event. For Cyber Monday, go to your favorite store’s website and sign up for their email newsletter. Many stores are giving subscribers exclusive coupons and discounts. Also visit eBay, Ebates, SlickDeals.net and price comparison websites. Deals are usually price matched, so make sure to compare prices from different websites at different times of the day—20% off can quickly turn into 50% off! To give you an idea of what’s out there, we’ve picked out some top deals (prices may change):
