Coupons.com site redesign madness
As many of you have noticed, Coupons.com has redesigned their site again. The new layout is interesting, to say the least. With their previous redesign, the site left behind its page-by-page format in favor of a "Show More Coupons" button. This makes it a real pain to view all of the coupons on the site, and our workaround has been to click the button once, then hit the space bar repeatedly to get all of the coupons on the screen. This was also the easiest way to print a second coupon when you've already printed one -- jump to the end of the coupon list to find the ones you already printed, then print again:
With this newest redesign, the site has mixed things up even more! Now, if you print a coupon, it jumps not to the end of the entire list, but to the end of that coupon's category. So, if you print a coupon for cereal or pizza, you will need to select the "Foods" category, then scroll to the end of the Foods coupons to find that coupon and print a second. The new redesign has also buried the zip code bar. If you wish to change your zip code, you now need to click "Local," register for an account, sign in, and change your zip.
I'm posting this in the hope that it will make some sense out of things for you. There's another print option that I just discovered too as I was working on this post. All of the printable coupon sites provide affiliate links to bloggers, and Coupons.com has a variety of ways for bloggers to link to coupons. I tried an old link today and was surprised to see the old (and more user-friendly) Coupons.com layout is still active. You can still select coupons page by page, and you may find it easier to use if you don't like the design of the new layout:
I added this link to the "Coupon Tools" bar at left under the "Coupons.com (old style)" option. I have no idea when or if they will update their old links to use the new design too, but for now, the old design is still up and working. While it lasts... you have a choice!
And, if you're unhappy with the new design, visit Coupons.com on Facebook and tell them what you think...
