Online coupons offered

by Linda Hiller, Staff Writer

It was just a matter of time before discount coupons became available on the Internet, and Cindy Alumbaugh wants to bring them to shoppers and businesses of Douglas County.

Carson Valley Coupons Online is now available for web surfers to access through their own personal computers and find the discounts they want, print them up, and take them to their favorite stores to use.

Alumbaugh is just getting started with co-owner Jimmy Sheridan, and they are adding merchants all the time, she said. For now, you’ll see a few Carson Valley merchants on the site – Hamdogs is offering 10 percent off any dinner entree and Legends Salon offers 10 percent off any first-time customer haircut or hair product.

“We want to encourage people to come back often because we’re always adding savings to the site,” she said.

Carson City, Lake Tahoe and Reno discounts are being added to the site, Alumbaugh said, and discounts on national and regional companies are currently available for categories including groceries, health and beauty, gifts, travel, sports, music, free stuff and more.

There are also links to sites for kids, teens, parents, veterans, etc.

Alumbaugh said the Internet coupon concept is cost-effective, since customers access the site for free and advertisers can potentially reach an endless number of customers.

“Our motto is ‘just print and go,'” she said. “And we welcome business owners to contact us if they want to offer discounts or coupons and get on board Carson Valley Coupons Online.”
