I am using this plugin not for coupons, but for other reasons and it fits perfectly. Setup is very easy. I wanted to change the text and filter options, so I decided to contact support. The support team helped me out so well. The coupon site looks amazing and just like I wanted now. Highly recommend!

I have bought this plugin for my two review site. (After using 1 years I have bought again.) In these period It works perfect. When I ask a question to support team, they wrote me back in 1 hour. This speed is really good. Also They helped me lots of issues about the plugin. All of these are because of my bad english. Thanks for their patience…

I’ve tried a few other coupon plugins, and I have to say this is the best free version. The way the plugin displays the coupons looks the cleanest out of the other plugins I’ve tried and offers more customization. Support also responds in a fast manner as well!
