“Savvy consumers will check 8coupons.com before they head out to eat, drink or shop in their neighborhood,” says Landy Ung, CEO and co-founder of 8coupons.com. “There’s a high chance that we can help shoppers get more for their money and let them know about a great nearby deal that they wouldn’t otherwise know about. 8coupons.com aggregates thousands of mobile coupons and local deals throughout the country.”

When a shopper visits 8coupons.com, the map on the home page will automatically populate the eight most popular deals based on his Internet protocol address. This ensures that anyone who visits the site will see the deals most relevant to them. Those deals will change dynamically as the user moves the map around to different locations, zooms in on a specific street, or narrows down the deals by sub-categories, such as restaurants, entertainment, beauty & spas, services, and shopping.

Since launching in 2007, 8coupons.com has offered a self-service mobile coupon platform for small businesses in New York City. The platform is now available nationwide, and to kick things off, the company is offering an opportunity for any business to try the service free for 100 days (an $888 value). Businesses can sign up at 8coupons.com and use the promo code “MobileCoupons” at checkout to receive a credit of $888.
