MeanCoupons was started with the purpose of providing the meanest of coupons for online shoppers. By mean we mean (!) the coupons that make sure that as much money remain in your pocket as possible. When the site was started in June 2005, there were only a handful of merchants that were covered. In course of time this has expanded to include over 1000 online retailers.

Even as the site grew over the years, we strived to keep the user interface clean and clutter free. That is why you will find very few banners and distractions on our pages. Our main aim is to give you the coupon you need in the least amount of time.

We contact merchants to obtain exclusive coupons and deals which are better in value than the generic ones available on other sites. These exclusives which include top merchant names like Dell, HP, Snapfish, Bluenile and Purely Gadgets are the most popular coupons of the site.

The search box available on the right side, gives you suggestions of sites as you start to type in the name of a merchant. If you like this search, you can even add it to your browser (Internet Explorer and FireFox). This way, when you need a coupon, it is right there at your fingertips. You can also browse through the category pages by clicking on the tabs towards the top of the page. The entire list of stores, sorted alphabetically is listed in the All Stores page.

We try to keep the coupons up to date. The coupons are validated periodically to make sure that there are no stale ones. We also keep the restrictions of these coupons updated. used to have an email newsletter. This was stopped when we started to post the best coupons and deals through Twitter. If you want to stay on top of the latest coupons and deals, be sure to check our Twitter page. You also have the option to subscribe to feeds of our Twitter page.
