The use of coupons can lend a hand to small businesses and companies in creating public awareness of their products and services and take advantage of the online environment.

Online coupons are simple, online retailers can offer them as a reward for their customers' loyalty and they are also effective in drawing in new customers.

Online coupons give a discount to the purchaser that acts as an incentive to get them to try a product or a website vendor they might never generally buy from. Discounts from 5% - 50% can be given and the consumer will be happy to try the new product at this lower price.

Discounts can be had from retailers through the use of an online coupon sent by email after the customer has registered ion the local website offering a price reduction if a certain amount is spent at the store. Common now are coupons that can be printed off the computer and used at the high street retailers.
