Coupon Site & Cash Back Site Reviews

Since 1999 through early 2018 we published over one million coupon codes and other shopping bargains. That's a lot of work!

With several great coupon sites to choose from, instead of being "yet another coupon site," we now recommend what we feel are the best coupon sites.

We also share what we think are the best places to earn cash back for your online shopping. After all, why not use a coupon code and get some cash back for placing the order? Now that's a winner (and some serious "shopping-bargains")! Check out our coupon site and cash back site reviews and recommendations below.

The Best Coupon Sites

Our favorite coupon sites reviewed and ranked.

  • CouponCabin

    "best coupon site"

    Many exclusive coupons. Visual proof that their coupons work. Cash-back options for many retailers.

  • Offers.com

    "save time and money"

    Huge selection of offers (coupons, product deals, credit cards, more) from a Ziff-Davis company.

  • savings.com

    "most local coupons"

    Categorized online coupons, grocery coupons, local deals and more. Twelve international sites. Much more.

  • RetailMeNot

    "largest coupon site"

    Hard to find a site with more coupons; however, many are "user-submitted" and simply don't work.

    Huge community of deal hunters. Very active deal forums. Coupons, deal alerts and more. Massive savings on front-page deals.

  • dealsplus

    "deal hunting community"

Coupon Site Usage Tips

  • Be sure to sign up for your favorite coupon site's newsletters so you'll get alerts to new coupons from the retailers you shop regularly.

 

  • The above coupon site list will likely address 95% of your shopping needs. If not, be sure to use Google or Bing to search for coupons (ex: "storename coupon") before you check out and place your order. Beware: there are lots of bogus or fake "coupons" posted online to lure visits.

 

  • While you're at it, be sure to join Bing Rewards and use Bing as your default search engine. (You can turn your Bing Rewards into Amazon gift cards, for example.)

 

  • Most coupon sites have categorized their offers and retailers. Be sure to look at alternatives. Sometimes you can buy the same product for less from a competitor.

The Best Cash Back Sites

These are our recommended cash back sites. It's great to "double-dip" on savings with a coupon code and cash back for placing the order!

Cash Back Site Usage Tips
