If you’re like me and have trouble keeping track of all the latest coupons and deals constantly appearing in your inbox, then you’ll probably really enjoy Reclip.It.
Marketed as a “community for coupon and deal lovers” and a “social catalog for people to share deals, coupons, and products on sale,” Reclip.It is essentially a Pinterest for coupons and daily deals as it lets users save their favorite deals for later or share them with followers. On Reclip.It you can customize your deals (and the method and frequency of notification) by choosing which sources to follow. You can also add your own reclips by adding the “Reclip” bookmarklet to your browser, making it easy to add and share clips. What helps is the visual aspects of the Reclip feed, which makes it easier to remember which deals you planned on revisiting.
Headquartered in New York City, Reclip.It was co-founded by Cheryl Yeoh, also CEO, and Jhony Fung, also CTO. Prior to starting Reclip.It, Yeoh created CityPockets, “a digital wallet and secondary marketplace for daily deals.” Yeoh was previously a management consultant at KPMG.
Fung also co-founded CityPockets with Yeoh and manages the technical aspects of Reclip.It. Before all this though, he was working as a senior developer at IBM. They founded Reclip.It with the vision of creating a “social shopping experience, like an online version of a discount department stores and retail outlets, where you discover specials and sales from other like-minded people.”
Currently deal bloggers or deal site administrators can submit their sites and help curate deal lists for other users. There is a list of qualifications that sites need to meet in order to be considered, but ultimately it’s a good way to drive more traffic and raise brand visibility.
Best of all, there’s also a “Free Stuff” section where Reclip.It users can share any free stuff they find online. On display currently are free Krispy Kreme doughnuts and even free coffee from Starbucks.
So if you love a good deal, be sure to check out Reclip.It and start saving now.
