What is a coupon?
A Coupon is “A voucher entitling the holder to a discount off a particular product.” (As defined by Lexico.com)
Businesses use coupons to incentivise people to buy or use their services, the business gains a price conscious consumer (who may not have used it before), exposure and the customer gets a discount. Win-win!
Historical UK Coupon Use
Coupons are historically linked to Coco-Cola, who gave away vouchers for free drinks to Americans in the 19th century. In the early 2000’s people often received “junk mail” and coupons through the door. They could be found on the back of receipts and in newspapers and magazines. People could also purchase coupon books, a small book with great discounts.
Since the rise of mobile internet these traditional ways have stopped being so relevant, people can now find it harder to access deals.
