An easy way to save money while making online purchases is to use coupon codes. Taking a few moments to search online before checking out can usually shave a few dollars off your order. CouponChief.com makes this process even faster by aggregating coupon codes from thousands of stores into one easily searchable database. Although this is admittedly not a new concept, Coupon Chief has a special twist that really sets it above the competition—you can get paid for submitting new coupon codes!
Here’s how Coupon Chief works: Every time someone makes a purchase through a coupon code that you submitted, you receive 2% of the purchase price of their order. When your earnings reach the minimum threshold of $25, you’ll receive the money via Paypal. Amazingly, there are no rules to stop you from buying products with codes that you’ve previously submitted. So let’s say you find a hot new coupon code for Old Navy jeans, and decide that you want to buy a pair. You can submit the coupon code to Coupon Chief, click through the code on their website, purchase the pants, and earn 2% of your cash back. That’s a pretty good deal for doing a minimal amount of work.
In a giving mood? Coupon Chief’s Coupons-4-Causes program has got you covered. Simply select the charity that you want to support before clicking the coupon code and making a purchase. Coupon Chief will then donate a portion (up to 20%) of your order’s purchase price. The best part is that the money comes straight from Coupon Chief, so you can shop ’til you drop with the knowledge that you’re supporting to a worthy cause.
While the charity option is nice and the moneymaking opportunity is even better, the real meat-and-potatoes of Coupon Chief are the coupons. How does Coupon Chief stack up against the competition? Fairly well, in my opinion. You’ll find most major retailers on there, including Amazon, Newegg, Target, and Kohl’s. The coupons themselves are fresh and useful. At the time of this writing, for example, there are coupons for free shipping at Kohl’s and $5 off a $50 purchase at Target. Coupon Chief users can rate the coupons based on freshness, so that expired coupon codes are easily avoidable.
Between the wide variety of coupons, the chance to make some extra cash, and the ability to support your favorite charity, I feel that Coupon Chief is definitely worth checking out. With over 15,000 stores represented and over 50,000 coupons posted, there’s savings there for everyone.
