Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping. ~ Bo Derek

Who doesn't like shopping?  - Looking at the goodies, lingering at their varieties and finally making a choice gives an adrenaline rush that is very satisfying. Shopping is my ultimate high; my personal therapist; my instant mood swinger. And when the shopping is virtual, the thrill ups many more notches. Like many people I was a reluctant online shopper till a few years back.

My very first e-purchase was a personalized CD featuring a mix of all time romantic songs for hubby.  I was a bundle of nerves till the CD reached home. Gotta say, the gift came on time and was thoroughly enjoyed. Since then, I have become hooked to online shopping. Be it cards, books, dresses, handicrafts, practically anything and everything. Sitting in the cool confines of our homes and flexing a few muscles brings products to our doorstep. NO traffic rush, no haggling with the auto wallah and definitely no hyper kids to run behind and struggling while trying out clothes in the trial room! Bliss Indeed.  And with a lot of options and innumerable portals around, the online shopping experience is only getting better. 

What if these online shopping promises not to make a huge dent in our wallets? Ain't it fun ? Be it ordering pizza online or purchasing apparels, a good deal for the same is like a cherry on the ice cream. Availing discounts and using coupons not only lowers the shopping bills but also makes the shopping experience more memorable.

This is where '' jumps into the fray.  A recent start-up, Cuponation is an online portal offering best deals, discount vouchers and coupon codes from a number of leading online stores. Covering a wide selection of categories ranging from electronics to apparels, books to flowers, jewels to health and beauty  and many more, this website is aiming to become the largest coupons and deals website for online shoppers in Indian e-stores.

Wanna shop online? Just enter their website, type the name of the store or the product you are looking for in the search bar and viola you are directed to the best possible deals from a variety of trusted e-portals like jabong, flipkart, myntra, yebhi etc.

There are two ways by which “cuponation” helps save money. One is through coupon codes and the other is through hot deals. Coupons give a discount of upto 60%, while the Hot deals like it says give you deals in the respective seller's site. In other words more value for money.

Availing coupons is simple and fuss free. The customer has just got to click the coupon codes which directly leads to the retailer's home page. The coupon code can be copied and pasted on the retailer’s checkout page as well. Besides there are printable coupons offering discounts at cinemas and restaurants. The other way of saving money is through hot deals which directly link up to the retailer’s pages.

The website is easily navigable and is spot on for the shopper’s needs. Browsing is a breeze and the tab – ‘Top 20’ straight away offers the most popular discounts and informs you about where all the action is happening.  Here you can just lookout for any one of the retailers offering the product of your choice with the best deal.

The website also has a very good social media presence. Check out their pages on Facebook , Google + and Twitter . Also, you can subscribe to their newsletters and stay abreast of all the hot deals happening.

Final Word :-
