EverSave.com Review

This week’s review is about Eversave.com, which is one of the top coupon sites in Yan’s listing. First impression on looking at this site is that, it is a nice & pleasantly designed site which is not just for coupons only, but includes a lot more content.

Eversave.com features an extensive recipe section, which lets you find recipes by multiple approaches. There is also an “Articles & Tips” section, which includes articles covering a very broad array of topics. Most of the articles are very concise and carefully plug links to various coupons and advertising (annoying) features of the website.

Design and looks are very professional. However most advertising (including the “Hot Offers” link in the navigation bar) take you to pages which force you to pick (click) a link/offer. If you have ever visited the free giveaway websites, which insist on signing up for offers, this is almost like that. When you enter such types of pages, regular navigational elements will be missing, making it tough to not click the links they want, unless you use your browsers back button.

On researching about the coupons in detail, very few are real coupons, most are just links to promotions/offers going on various sites. And all of these are done by partnering with keycode.com, which is more of an advertising channel for merchants (by telling about various offers they have) and not a coupon site by definition. However occasional, merchants might give special offers for keycode.com with a special code. So eventually, eversave.com will never get the typical coupons you want to find. But will help you find “links” to promotions.

Eversave also features printable store coupons, which is again just front for its parnet smartsource.com, which is one other coupon site, which require special software to be installed, to enable printing coupons.

So in a nutshell, Eversave is not a coupon site at all. It is a just a well designed site with cleverly drafted content and navigational menu items, which hope to take you into an annoying advertising technique. In addition, there are also “links” (not coupons) to several online stores which features promotions in those stores.

Popular coupon sites – August 2007

This is August 2007 revision of the Popular Coupon sites list. You can find the last month revision of the list here.

The change in rating shows the difference compared to July results. The list has a total of 24 web sites. I have added wow-coupons.com and couponseven.com this month and deleted couponalbum.com for spamming on my blog. Just kidding. I moved them to my deal sites list since they seem to post not only coupons but also individual products.

The winner this month is again eversave.com (7.37%). The worst result comes from shopping-bargains.com who’s Alexa rank drops by 28.08%. This is the second month in the row as they drop by over 20%. In fact they never had a positive month since I started to track them in February of this year.

There are 13 more coupon sites in my database that didn’t meet the Alexa Rank < 250,000 requirement. If you know a popular coupon site and it is missing from this list, please leave a comment or send me a note and I will add it with the next release.

Popular coupon sites – July 2007

This is July 2007 revision of the Popular Coupon sites list. You can find the last month revision of the list here.

The change in rating shows the difference compared to June results. The list has a total of 25 web sites which is one more than last month. Thanks to your tips I added a new site: savings.com, please welcome the newcomer! There are 11 more coupon sites in my database that didn’t meet the Alexa Rank < 250,000 requirement.

The leader this month is eversave.com (8.37%) closely followed by retailmenot.com (info) (7.78%). The worst result comes from boodle.com (-34.09%) which is not surprising at all. The company was acquired by Coupons.com in May and the domain has been redirecting to coupons.com for some time naturally reducing direct traffic.

Have I missed your favorite coupon site? Please let me know in the comments!
