The newly retooled RetailMeNot.com includes a series of improved features that help better showcase top coupons from tens of thousands of merchants and provide a more relevant search experience for consumers. 

"We continue to work to provide a better experience for millions of deal seekers looking to buy the things they want and need," said Cotter Cunningham, the CEO and founder of WhaleShark Media, Inc., the operator of RetailMeNot.com. "New website features, such as direct navigation to more than 1,500 in-store coupons and thousands of free-shipping offers, improved search functionality and a more relevant store-recommendation engine will also help merchants increase their sales."

RetailMeNot.com continues to provide consumers access to more than 500,000 coupons from stores they shop every day.

As a part of the website's upgrade, new site features include:

  • Improved product and category search functionality that enables consumers to more easily find coupons for items they want by searching by product or product type, such as searching for "laptops" or looking for coupons within the electronics category
  • Direct navigation to free shipping offers that provide consumers access to thousands of deals to help them save money on their online orders by eliminating shipping charges
  • In-store savings with printable coupons, which makes saving money at retailers' brick-and-mortar locations as easy as saving money via their online store

  • Improved relevancy for store recommendations powered by newly built Hadoop- and Hive-supported data warehouse functionality that will enable future personalization development on RetailMeNot.com
