Mobile Coupons Stats for Brands and Retailers

Coupons have been around for a long time. The first one was released by the Coca Cola company in 1887 — back in the days when heroin was still being marketed as an over-the-counter cough-suppressant. And, just as medicine has evolved by leaps and bounds in the past 130 years, so too have coupons. Modern marketers now have the power to make coupons that are interactive, personalized, and easy to track.
