    ok guys this is not blackhat but i found this trawling the web you can save shitloads of money here

    The concept revolves around companies and consumers posting coupon info so that other consumers can use them when going around doing their shopping. Do companies like this kind of service? Maybe they won?t right away, but they?ll adapt and eventually work this into their marketing strategies ? it is a social networking phenomenon, after all. Sites can specifically request to be de-listed from RetailMeNot, though.

    We also found a bunch of other sites with a similar offering, but RetailMeNot not only has the largest tech listing, but also has some tools to make your life easier. They?ve written a handy FireFox Extension that looks up coupons for you as soon as you enter a website. Just visit the site and a notification will pop-up just under the site Tabs, telling you the number of coupons available for that site and a button that redirects you to a listing. We?ve tried it, and let?s just say it makes life sooo much easier. They also have a Dashboard Widget and an iGoogle Gadget to do the same.

    mmmm, this could be something interesting for people doing incentive marketing.
    maybe promise someone some savings coupons in exchange for a lead or something

    A very good way to build up traffic and get a subscriber list of savvy customers.
    Get them on your list and sell them discount gadgets for a life time.

    reminds me of rakeback sites for online casinos, join up and you can be refunded 20% of your losses, while the site owner keeps the other 20%. What an idea that was...
