There’s a new breed of couponing app on the horizon. This new breed is eco-savvy, always on the move, and just as good at saving you cash as your old paper couponing tactics (maybe even better!) With new apps like Yowza, you can feel confident that you’ll always have the perfect coupon standing at the ready just when you need it. In this post, learn how to use Yowza and spare the trees while you save yourself time and money.

1. Why Yowza?

As of 2013, more than 70 thousand merchants accepted Yowza coupons, and that number just continues to grow. Also, the developers (including celebrity co-founder, Heroes star Greg Grunberg) negotiate with each participating retailer to provide special discounts, coupons, and deals that are unique to the Yowza community—meaning you can find them nowhere else.

2. How to get Yowza

Yowza is available online or as a free downloadable app for iOS and Android.

3. How to begin using Yowza

You can search for coupons from home using the Yowza website, or search on the go using the apps. Here’s how to get started.

  • Choose your search preferences.
  • If mobile, download the app of your choice.
  • You can then immediately search for coupons by product or by retailer, or simply browse location-specific deals displayed using geo-location (GPS).

4. Special Yowza-only features

In addition to the special deals, coupons and discounts only Yowza users will see, the app also has a host of other built-in special features you’ll love.

  • Mobile Wallet: You can save coupons for future use to your "mobile wallet" so you can pull them up quickly once in-store.
  • Savings Ticker: You can also calculate and track your couponing savings through the handy in-app savings calculator.
  • Click to call: You can call any retailer with one click on the coupon.
  • Turn-by-turn directions: You can get detailed directions to the retailer of your choice.
  • Proximity options: You can choose the search radius—for instance, 5, 10, or 15 miles—to find deals and participating retailers.
  • Silent until needed: This isn’t an app that will bombard you with texts, push notices, or ads. You won't even know Yowza is there until you launch it.
  • Automatic filtering: If the area you’re in doesn't have certain retailers, those coupons and deals will automatically be filtered out of your search results.
  • Auto-scanning: You can open your mobile wallet or pull up the coupon or deal on the screen, and the cashier can just scan your smart phone to redeem it for you.
  • Easy sharing: You can share coupons, deals, and your savings tally via email, text, or social media.
  • Nationwide usability: No matter where you go, Yowza goes with you, with nationwide deals, discounts, and coupons that save you money whether you’re at home or on vacation.
