Passbook Coupons Finally Arrive for 20 Popular Stores
Passbook coupons are now available for popular stores like Barnes & Noble, Sears, PetCo and many others, allowing iPhone users to save and use coupons in iOS 6.
Coupons.com now offers Passbook coupons for stores across the country, bringing savings to iPhone users at 20 major retailers.
Passbook is a new app for iOS 6 that allows users to download coupons, movie tickets, loyalty cards, gift cards and other items.
Users can visit Coupons.com from the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, and see a list of coupons. After tapping on a coupon, users can add it to Passbook to use in a local store. The coupons show the offer, an expiration date and a barcode for the cashier.
At this point there are no options to automatically notify users when they are near a store, as some Passbook passes can.
Some of the most popular retailers with Passbook coupons on Coupons.com include Macy’s, Old Navy, Barnes & Noble, Sears and PetSmart. The full list includes the following stores.
- Harbor Freight Tools
- Lane Bryant
- OshKosh B’gosh
- Spirit Halloween
- Sweet Tomatoes
- ULTA Beauty
- Yankee Candle
Passbook coupon savings offer up to 50% off one item at Jo-Ann Fabric, $10 off a $50 purchase at Old Navy, $20 off a $45 purchase at Yankee Candle and many other deals. The deals are all visible on Coupons.com on the iPhone.
