Comparison shopping network and consumer ratings service provider Shopzilla Inc.is mashing together its specialties with the launch of RobotOatmeal.com, a coupon site that displays only valid promotional codes for offers available from retailers that participate in its Bizrate Insights Seller Ratings Program. The company says 5,200 e-retailers participate in that program.
Offer listings on Robot Oatmeal display when a code was last used by a shopper so others can see before clicking that it is still valid. The click—for now at least—is free. Shopzilla says they are not charging affiliate commissions or click fees for traffic directed to a retailer’s web site at least through the end of the year. “Down the road the goal is to develop models that are optimal for retailers, and do not impose perpetual monetization,” a Shopzilla spokeswoman says.
Jewelry e-retailer Blue Nile Inc., No. 71 in the 2013 edition of Internet Retailer’s 2013 Top 500 Guide, has coupon codes on the coupon site, which officially launched last week but has been in test mode for several months. Shopzilla will promote RobotOatmeal.com at its booth during the Internet Retailer Conference Exhibition next week in Chicago.
Consumers who search for Blue Nile’s offers on the site get a list of live offers, along with the number of times the offers have been used, when they were last used was and when they are scheduled to expire. For example, a Blue Nile 10% off coupon code displayed this week shows it has been used 43 times. The coupon expires May 30 and was last used successfully by a customer 10 hours ago. “Robot Oatmeal was able to drive excellent traffic and tens of thousands in gross merchandise sales in a short period of time,” says Jon Sainsbury, vice president and head of strategy, Blue Nile.
Shopzilla says displaying only live offers and the times they were last used addresses problems that come up when a consumer, at checkout, tries to redeem a code at checkout that comes up as invalid. It says that frustrates consumers and leads to greater customer service inquiries.
PHOENIX, AZ–(Marketwire – Jan 18, 2013) – Essential Edibles (http://essentialedibles.net) has announced the official launch of their much anticipated natural energy supplement. The fat-free and sugar-free supplement contains no calories whatsoever and can provide as many as nine hours of herbal energy with a single serving. Unlike beverage energy supplements, this all herbal supplement comes in simple capsule form and has no associated caffeine or sugar related withdrawal symptoms. In celebration of the launch, the company is offering a 50% discount on a full month supply at their online store for a limited time when using coupon code NEWLIFE at checkout.
“We are pleased to officially launch our natural energy supplement,” explained Mr. Goodstein, founder and CEO of Essential Edibles. “Using a synergistic combination of all-natural ingredients and herbal extracts, our energy supplement is designed to provide all day energy from a single serving with no associated sugar or caffeine withdrawal symptoms.”
Energy drinks have become increasingly popular over the past ten years as more Americans seek an accessible and convenient form of daily energy to make it through their busy day. The beverages often contain excessive amounts of caffeine and sugar, and are known to cause undesirable side effects after the body has processed these “uppers,” in what many people have characterized as a “crash.”
“We designed our herbal energy supplement as a more effective means of making it through your day without having to overspend on coffee or energy drinks that can cost as much as $5 or more per serving,” Goodstein said. “With our herbal energy supplement, one dose can provide all-day energy without the sugar, the caffeine, the carbonation and bloating, and the typical crash; and without draining your checking account, too.”
For a limited time, Essential Edibles is offering a site-wide deal on all of its products, including its energy supplement. Use coupon code NEWLIFE at checkout for 50% off all in-store products.

Coupons, just like books, movies or music are slowly but steadily moving to the digital realm. While the majority of coupons are still delivered in newspapers, magazines and on paper in stores, a growing number of companies have started to offer printable coupons on their websites. Digital coupon solutions are the next logical step not only because smartphones are available widely nationwide but also because they are offering retailers and manufacturers better control over the process and the buyer.
Google two days ago announced the launch of Zavers (Savers), the company’s new digital coupon solution that brings shoppers, retailers and manufacturers together on a digital platform. Customers can save coupons that they find on retailer websites directly to their smartphone, likely by scanning a QR code or other code with the phone’s camera or entering a code manually into the application. The coupon is then added to the account of the shopper and used automatically during checkout when a reward card or phone number is provided.
Retailers and manufacturers benefit from Google’s solution in several ways. They can monitor data in real-time and get access to additional analytic information about their customers that they would not get with traditional coupon solutions.
And the benefits for the consumer? It may speed things up for them during checkout as the scanning and sorting of coupons falls away. Google Wallet users benefit from integration of Zavers into the payment processing service.
Zavers is not a new service. In fact, Google bought Zave Networks in 2010 and is now releasing the product on its own again. You can still visit the original site and it is not clear what will happen to it in the future. The about us page is already redirecting to the Zavers by Google page.
It needs to be noted that Zavers launches in the United States and is not available in other countries right now. It is likely that Google will expand the market once it has established Zavers as a brand in the US. (via)

Are you in the market for a tablet this holidays? Then the iPad range would have certainly crossed your radar. However if you’re contemplating skipping Apple’s tablet because of the price tag, read on.
Used iPad 2 16GB WiFi only $270 with coupon at Cowboom
Cowboom is offering the used Apple iPad 2 16GB WiFi Tablet in black for $300. However you can use the coupon code “celebrate10″ which cuts it down to $270 only. With free shipping, that’s $5 under our mention of a used iPad 2 from last week and also makes it the cheaper iPad 2 16GB WiFi model we’ve come across yet. It’s also $130 below the lowest total price we could find for a new iPad 2 if you’re still shopping around for one.
As we recommended in the past, when it comes to buying older generation Apple models, it is always wise to buy them used or refurbished given their lastability and the fact that new models always launch at the same $499 base price tag.
The iPad 2 weighs 1.3 lbs. and features an Apple A5 1GHz dual-core processor, 9.7″ 1024×768 LCD touchscreen display, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, accelerometer, compass, up to 10 hours of battery life, and more. The Cowboom deal and coupon code is valid until 23rd December.

A new customer signing up on the Value plan on a monthly billing cycle will only pay $1 to get started.
