Significant increase in web coupon use

April 19, 2010

A coupon processing company says consumers used more than 50-million coupons in 2009. That's an increase of more than 250-percent over the previous year.

Experts say clicking on those web coupons can also tell retailers a lot about you your shopping habits.

They can track your internet address, Facebook page information, or the key words you searched to find the coupons.

The information can then be used for future marketing.
