You’ve just downloaded the KCL app, which means you’re serious about shopping smart and saving big. Or you’re thinking about it. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.

Since it’s your first time using the app, you probably have some questions on how to get started.

I’ve written out this step-by-step guide to answer all your questions so you can start saving and capitalizing on the best deals out there — stat!


1. Download the Krazy Coupon Lady app for your iPhone.

If you have an iPhone, you’ll want to download the app in the App store.

Have an Android? Then head to the Google Play store and check out the Android KCL mobile app guide.


2. Set up deal alerts so you never miss sweet deals.

Don’t want to miss any hot deals, do you? Didn’t think so!

We’ll only send you the best deals out there, and you can change your alert settings whenever you want.

  1. Tap on “Notify me of deals!”
  2. Tap “Allow” to give Krazy Coupon Lady permission to send you notifications.
  3. You’re all set! Get ready for some KRAZY good deals coming your way.

Want to customize your KCL deal alerts? At any time, visit the Alerts section of the app by tapping on “Alerts” from the bottom navigation bar of the KCL app.

So how do deal alerts work exactly? Let’s say you choose “air fryer.” Anytime there’s a hot deal on air fryers, Krazy Coupon Lady will send a push notification directly to your phone so you can hop on it right away.

Want to change the deals you receive notifications for? Just toggle the button off.

If you want to stop receiving notifications, then you can toggle “Push Notifications” off and we’ll leave you alone until you’re ready.


3. Select your favorite stores and brands to get relevant deals and coupons.

After downloading the app, you can choose your top stores from the yellow header box at the top of your My Deals page. Give the heart next to your favorite retailers a tap and that’s it!

Not sure which stores to add? I suggest starting with Target and CVS since these are super coupon-friendly stores.

Want to unfavorite a store? Tap on the heart again to remove it from your favorites list.

Don’t see your store? That means we aren’t covering it right now. We try to stick with the best stores for couponing, but if you think a store you like should be added, contact us and let us know!

4. Create your KCL account.

To create an account or log in to your existing KCL account, tap on the profile image in the upper right corner of the app. You can skip and use the app as a guest, too, but you won’t get access to all the awesome features, and where’s the fun in that?

With an account, you can create shopping lists based on your favorite deals and brag about how much money you save to the other members of the KCL community.

By creating an account, you also automatically subscribe yourself to our Daily Deals email. You can opt out anytime, but then you won’t see all the ways you can save!


5. Fill out the rest of your profile.

Once logged in, take a moment to finish setting up your profile.

Access your profile by tapping on the profile icon in the upper right corner, then “Edit Profile.”

Within your profile, you can:

  • Update your email address.
  • Update your display name and first and last name.
  • Add or change your profile picture.
  • Update your profile password (email users only).
  • Delete your account (Keep in mind, you won’t be able to reactivate your account and will lose all of your personal settings, store preferences, favorites, and brags. We cannot recover deleted profile data.)

You can find it on the bottom menu. When you tap on it, you’ll see three tabs:

  1. Saved Deals
  2. Saved Coupons
  3. Saved Tips & Articles

To add Deals to your “My List”:

  1. Tap on “Save Deal to My Lists” from any deal formula.

  4. Check the “Saved Coupons” tab in “My List” to view your coupons.

PRO TIP: Coupons saved to your “My List” are not directly stored in your app. You’ll still want to tap on each coupon saved to be taken to its parent site to clip and/or print. Newspaper coupons can only be found in Sunday newspaper inserts.

To add Favorites to your “My List”:

There are three types of coupons: printable, newspaper, and mobile.

In the “Saved Coupons” section of your “My List,” you can see which coupons are which by checking whether the coupon link has a printer, newspaper, or phone icon next to it.

Printable coupons: All the printable coupons in KCL’s database will be linked. Tap on the coupon in your list and then on “Get Coupon” to be taken to its source to print.

Newspaper coupons: You’ll need to invest in a Sunday newspaper to get coupon inserts (HINT: go to your local dollar store). We make it easy by telling you the date the insert was released right in the deal.

Mobile coupons: Mobile coupons can either be saved directly to a store loyalty account or accessed through a rebate app. Click on the digital coupon, then “Get Coupons,” and we’ll lead you to the source.

Why don’t my coupons match yours?

The coupons in weekly inserts vary by region.

Many times, inserts from different areas will even have a coupon for the same product but the value will differ. It’s not guaranteed that your area will have the same coupons.

Why don’t the sales at my store match yours?

Some deals, particularly in-store clearance finds, can vary from store to store. When we post clearance deal pricing, it’s based on location and availability. Clearance is store overstock and really depends on how much inventory the store has to sell and how quickly they want to sell it. When available, we’ll include a link to Brickseek on in-store clearance deals so that KCL readers can check the price and availability near them.

If you ever have questions, we suggest calling your store ahead of time or visiting their website to view the weekly sales before you make the trip!


What do SS, USS, SAVE, and PG mean?
