Smart shoppers are getting the most out of their smart phones.

If you are in the store and need a coupon, you've got it on your android phone, iPhone or iPad.

Just download the savings while standing in the checkout line.


Imagine not having to stuff coupons or even use scissors to save $5, $10 even get 50 percent off an item.
It is possible as more and more stories are putting their coupons on line and some have created apps for that coupon.

Kohl's, Joann, and Michaels are just a few of the stories that allow you to simple download their app on your android, iPhone or iPad.
It's easy to use. I have stood in line and downloaded a coupon. By the time i get to the register, i have a coupon and the cashier scans it or types in a code.

Many stores allow you to use coupon sent to your email. Bath and Body Works, Macy’s are stores that allow you to use your emailed coupons.

Target will even text coupons and discounts right on your phone.

So you can get coupons and discount from store apps, emails and text.
