Nobody likes paying full price for their shopping. Whether you're refreshing your wardrobe or picking up some groceries, it’s a great feeling when you can grab a bargain instead of paying the MSRP. Couponing can be a hassle though and it can be hard to keep up with all the deals available, particularly when dealing with stores in the mall.
Shopular wants to fix this by bringing couponing into the digital age with its iOS and Android apps. Gathering together the best local deals, offers and weekly ads, it serves as your one stop shop for all things discount.
You can download Shopular for free and using the app does not require you to create an account. Simply open the app and begin browsing the deals across chain stores in the U.S. You’ll be shown featured offers on the app’s main page that you can simply scroll through and tap in order to find out more details. I’d recommend reading the fine print and the user comments for any coupons you wish to use. Sometimes they are not valid at all stores and making sure you read the info first can save you a wasted trip to the mall. From a particular offer’s page you can redeem the coupon, get the code and show it at checkout.
You can customize your Shopular experience and fine tune it for your tastes. In the app’s settings, you can mark certain retailers as favorites to make sure you are kept up to date on its latest deals and you can also allow the app to alert you of deals based on your location (using GPS in this way does dramatically lower your battery life, though, which should be considered). There’s no way to set the location usage to only when the app is in use — it has to be “Always” or “Never” which made me want to turn this feature off.
If you don’t see a deal from a particular retailer, you can search for it easily. The list of included stores is comprehensive and includes the likes of H&M, Forever21, CVS, Victoria’s Secret, GAP, Hollister, J. Crew, Old Navy, American Apparel and many more, as well as covering over a thousand malls in the U.S. The app is only available in the States, however, so those looking for deals outside of the country will have to opt for an alternative.
When you find a coupon you wish to take advantage of, you can mark it as a favorite so it can be easily accessed when you get to the checkout and redeemed on screen — no need to take in your paper coupon clippings any more.
As well as bringing together thousands of deals from hundreds retailers, Shopular also includes weekly ads and circulars from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Target, Home Depot and others. You can save particular pages of the weekly ads for easy access too meaning you no longer have to worry about keeping an eye on your email lists and paper ads.
The user interface of Shopular is straightforward. The self-explanatory layout and ease of finding and redeeming coupons makes trying out Shopular a breeze. It's no wonder that Shopular is one of the most popular couponing apps available.
If you are into couponing and deal-hunting, Shopular needs to be in your app library. It’s easy to use, comprises literally thousands of offers from hundreds of major retailers across the country, and could save you a lot of money. It’s free to download and does not require you to make an account, so it’s worth trying to see if it works for you.
