PROS / CouponCabin provides live chat support.
CONS / The homepage is so packed with information, your eyes don't know where to look first.
VERDICT / With thousands of coupons and sales, you are sure to find great savings.
CouponCabin provides the typical online coupon service features, such as coupon codes, but also has a free mobile app as well as a web browser extension. We also enjoyed perusing through their Product Deals and Freebies sections.
This online coupon service provides coupon codes, as well as grocery, printable and free sample coupons.
Coupon codes are searchable alphabetically by store. You can sort the coupons by Free Shipping, Just Added, Expiring Soon and 100% Success. If the coupon does not have a "Guaranteed to Work" or "Works all the time" label, then it will have a percentage representing the success rate. Accompanying these success labels are customer comments. We appreciate this inclusion, as it will save you from choosing a code that doesn’t work.
Grocery coupons are similar to coupon codes in that you have to sort through the coupons by category alphabetically by brand. We found this interesting, as the majority of online coupon services simply filter their coupons by category, such as food, health care, household, etc.
From the main merchant page, you can click on any of the top coupons. If you choose one for Target, for example, you will not only see the top deal for the day from this company, but you will also see all of the other coupon codes Target offers. The majority of merchants, like Target, also have the ability to show you the grocery sales, printable coupons, freebies and deals also offered by this site, which is really fantastic.
While you can search for freebies by individual store, you can also access the main Freebies tab. This section includes free samples for a wide variety of brands and items. When we were researching this site, we found a freebie for a free Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine sample, as well as a free "Parents" magazine reader app download for your iPad, a free Miracle Whip sample and others. There were so many great freebies.
To make sure that you never miss a deal while searching your favorite sites, you can install CouponDetector, a browser extension. Once downloaded, the extension will alert you to coupons when you are on the retailer’s site.
For fantastic deals on the go, CouponCabin also offers a free mobile app for your iPhone and Android devices. With the app, you can find deals for local restaurants, stores and businesses, find the lowest gas prices in town, search a database for grocery coupons and more.
CouponCabin offers a lot of coupons, though they could organize them better. Because of the number of navigational tools, links and advertisements on the homepage, you can easily become overwhelmed. We suggest bypassing all of the categories on the homepage and searching for coupon codes via the search bar at the top of the page. The Coupon, Grocery, Printable and Freebies tabs located directly underneath the search bar are also helpful.
CouponCabin is one of the only online coupon services that provide live chat support, so we definitely applaud them for this inclusion. Their support section doesn't stop there. You can fill out an online form for both technical questions and to report an expired coupon, deal or link. The coupon service also has a How it Works section with information on how to use the codes, as well as an explanation of what each coupon is.
You can even follow CouponCabin via Facebook, Google+ and Twitter and ask them questions from these sites.
For tips on how you can be a thriftier spender, saving money for you and your family, we suggest that you also check out CouponCabin's blog, which is frequently updated.
CouponCabin is a comprehensive site with a ton of features. The site is cluttered and can be difficult to navigate, however. Despite poor site navigation, we do feel that this online coupon service has a great coupon code offering and we love the Freebies section.
