Coupon finder

Discover discounts on the Web site you visit with this tool.

ShowTheOffer helps you discover money-saving vouchers, coupons, and discounts on any Web site that offers them. While this program is not without its flaws, it could help you keep money in the bank.

ShowTheOffer's interface is a mixed bag, in our opinion. While it embedded itself neatly into our toolbar and was easy to navigate, its online Help file is more of a commercial than an instructional. Fortunately, the program is simple enough to use with common sense; in fact, ShowTheOffer requires almost no effort to use. While you surf online, a pop-up window appears whenever the program detects voucher and coupon offers. The pop-ups detail the special offer, the discounted price, and any coupon code you needed to enter. This all seemed legitimate, though we didn't buy anything based on ShowTheOffer's findings and thus can't verify if the codes work. On the Web sites where there was no special offer, a pop-up screen would appear offering to help us win $500 every month by entering ShowTheOffer's drawing, which quickly grew annoying. The program doesn't offer any special features, which was a disappointment. Something as simple as the capability to turn off the program would be helpful because ShowTheOffer is always running. While there were some details we didn't like, the program's capability to find money-saving offers made it worthwhile.

ShowTheOffer is a free program. It leaves files behind after uninstalling. While it's far from perfect, its money-saving possibilities prompt us to recommend this program.
