Lots of people are planning stay-cations or trips that are pretty close to home this summer to keep costs down, well here’s a fun and easy way to find deals, bargains and hot spots like restaurants and movie theaters while you’re on the road. Where? is a free SmartPhone application (available for iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Palm, Pre and most other networks) that will help you find the cheapest gas, the closest cup of coffee, or reviews and times for movies playing nearby. Even if you’re not traveling this summer, you can use Where to find new restaurants to try or local concert times.
The best part about Where, in my opinion, is that it has partnered with Yowza!! to bring mobile coupons direct to your SmartPhone. Once you download the Where application for your phone, simply launch it and choose “offers”. Coupons good for savings near you will instantly appear, no matter where you are! Yowza!! is even providing coupons for brands like Crate & Barrel, Aveda Salons, the Container Store, Kiehl’s, Klingman’s Furniture, American Gold Corp. and other higher end stores that don’t traditionally offer coupon discounts. A recent study by Coupons.com showed that consumers with higher incomes are among those most likely to use coupons, and in response a growing number of retailers are hoping to use mobile coupons to bring in customers. Now you can pocket even more savings and easily keep up with local deals right on your cell phone!
