Are you a Rather Be Shopping couponer? If so, you’re going to like this newest Rather Be Shopping addition. Rather Be Shopping is one of my favorite websites for coupons, and now that it’s gone mobile with the newly launched Rather Be Shopping iOS App, I like it even more!
What is Rather Be Shopping?
Ok, backing up for a moment. Perhaps you haven’t heard of Rather Be Shopping. Or maybe you haven’t had the opportunity to check it out. But that’s all in the past, now! Rather Be Shopping is an oh-so-handy free online coupon and deal finding resource dedicated to finding, sorting, and posting the best coupons available on the Internet.
What kinds of coupons will you find at Rather Be Shopping? From online coupons to hot deals, to free shipping coupon codes, Rather-Be-Shopping has the coupons you want. And now, Rather Be Shopping has gone one step further, helping you find those same coupons while you are on-the-go.
Whoa – on-the-go coupon access?
Yep, that’s right! Now you can have access to both online and in-store coupons anywhere, at any time, with the new Rather Be Shopping mobile app, available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It’s so easy to use, easy to navigate, too. Simply search for coupons either by store name or by product category. That’s all there is to it. Searching by category can be especially useful when shopping at a local store and you want to see if another retailer has a better deal. Do a quick category search and the Rather Be Shopping app will display all stores that currently offer coupons in that specific category. Now that’s a handy feature!
The Rather Be Shopping app is also broken down into two coupon categories for easy – and fast – navigation to the specific type of coupon you are searching for.
In-Store Coupons – No more arriving at your favorite local store, only to realize you left that oh-so-valuable coupon behind. Just load the Rather Be Shopping app on your iPhone, find that coupon, and bam! That discount is now in your hand – literally. In most cases, you simply need to present the coupon displayed on your smart device to the cashier at check-out. The cashier then scans the coupon directly from the smart device and – that’s right – the savings are your. With the Rather Be Shopping, app, browsing for in-store coupons has never been so easy.
But wait – that’s not all. The Rather Be Shopping coupons aren’t just limited to retailers. Access coupons for local restaurants too, including Denny’s, Burger King, Carl’s Jr., Chuck E Cheese, and Quizno’s. Keep checking back as restaurants continue to be added.
Online Coupons – No matter where you are shopping, don’t be left wondering if there is a better coupon elsewhere for that coveted item. The app lets you keep tabs on the same coupons found at the Rather Be Shopping website, and with over 800 popular online retailers represented at Rather Be Shopping, you are sure to find coupons that will save you money.
Bonus tip: Found something at your local store? Search the Rather Be Shopping app via the Categories option to see what other coupons might be available on-line. Found a better coupon? Access it via the Rather Be Shopping app, then complete the purchase directly through the retailer’s website.
I don’t know about you, but I give this app 5-stars! I have been known to leave the house – and my paper coupons – behind when heading out on a local shopping trip. Just last week, in fact! Wish I had the Rather Be Shopping app then. But no more will I find myself without my money saving coupons.

Special Note for Android Users
Great news! I’ve learned from the source – aka Kyle James at Rather Be Shopping – that they are fast and hard at work on an Android version of the Rather Be Shopping App, with the plans of delivering it to you by early 2013.
