Text and Save With These Coupon Club Codes

Texting while shopping is not only safe -- it's downright smart for shoppers who want to save big money on purchases. Whether you shop online or in the store, you can find great discounts via text if you join the mobile clubs of restaurants, local shops, and large retailers.

Once you join the text club, the retailer will send exclusive coupons and deals straight to your mobile phone. In most cases, you'll simply show your phone to your cashier to get the discount. It's important to keep in mind that some companies are steering away from text clubs and prefer that you download their mobile app instead. This is a great way to save money as well. It may actually be better if you prefer when to browse for deals only when needed rather than receiving alerts at random times of the day.

Many of these businesses also offer loyalty programs that have additional benefits. They are certainly worth signing up for if you shop at a certain store or restaurant often. If your favorite stores and restaurants aren't listed here, visit their website to see what deals and programs they offer. It's hard to find a large business that doesn't have some sort of savings program.

Keep in mind

Standard text messaging rates apply to these programs, so if you don’t have unlimited texting on your phone plan, use discretion when signing up for these deals to ensure that you save more than you spend by sending and receiving texts. If you find that the companies are sending you too many texts or you no longer visit their shop, you can get out of the program, typically by texting the word STOP as a reply to their most recent communication to you.
