RetailMeNot – New Social Coupon Codes Site

RetailMeNot creators are looking to replicate the success of BugMeNot (which is also their web site) by taking a similar approach and applying it in a different field — online shopping.

While BugMeNot is a repository of login/password data for different web sites — RetailMeNot stores coupon codes for online retailers. This taps into the market of traditional coupon databases like CurrentCodes and DealCoupon as well as the social bargain hunting sites like Trezr.

The distinct thing about RetailMeNot is their bookmarket which brings the coupons to where you really need them — your shopping cart. Bookmark the link in your browser and go shopping. When you found what you need — check if there is a coupon for it with a single mouse click.

While the web site is full of bogus coupons right now — inevitable result of sudden publicity — I expect the dust to settle down and the “social” part to kick in. Just need to give it some time.

Thanks to the folks at Consumerist for this tip.
