Mobile Future

Save money at check out with mobile coupons

This month, Target announced special mobile-coupon offers sent directly to customer cell phones. Coupons are redeemed when the bar code on the phone is scanned at checkout. According to U.K.-based Juniper Research, more than 1-in-10 mobile subscribers in developed regions around the world will use mobile coupons by 2014, generating nearly $6 billion in redemption value. With nearly 90% of Americans owning a mobile device, that’s like money in your pocket.
