"Savings.com was able to provide the content I wanted with the technology to back it up," said Pinyo Bhulipongsanon, founder of Moolanomy, a popular personal finance blog. "Within a short time, Moolanomy Coupons was up-and-running with over 17,000 coupons and deals spanning thousands of stores and hundreds of categories. Moolanomy.com has found another steady revenue source that helps enhance the overall business with a minimum amount of ongoing work and costs. This partnership is a terrific win."

The simple and customizable module has been optimized for SEO purposes and is blog-friendly, automatically adapting to the website's style while increasing revenue for the site. The module keeps the audience on the blog without taking them to external sites. In addition, Savings.com affiliate partners benefit from higher payouts than from any other affiliate network with options to view comprehensive financial and performance reports. The plugin and widget currently support both the US and UK markets.

The Savings.com Coupon WordPress Plugin and Widget also offer users the capability to:

  • Search the entire Savings.com database by store, brand or keyword.
  • Customize up to three "Featured Categories" that are relevant to the website's audience, therefore providing only the deals visitors are interested in.
  • Link directly to each merchant page that lists all of the merchant's deals in order of popularity.

"Early users of the plugin have seen a double-digit increase in both referrals and conversions," said Soam Lall, Business Development & Partnerships at Savings.com. "As we gear up for the fourth quarter, we forecast the plugin will help our partners multiply their current monetization efforts. The plugin changes the way they think about content and increases value for site visitors."
