*EXPIRED* Coupons on your Cell

by Freebies4Mom on June 24, 2008 4:11 pm

Get a coupon for “Buy One Tea Freddo blended drink Get One Free” for Peet’s Coffe & Tea on your cell phone. Say what? Yes, you can now get coupons on your cell phone using a new free service called Cellfire (obviously carrier charges may apply for receiving text messages). You simply show the cashier your phone with the coupon image and unique code displayed to get the discount.

It’s easy to sign-up for Cellfire here if you want to try using it. Visit the Deals page to find out what coupons are available for your area. I see a great coupon for Hollywood Video that I could use! But I had to contact Customer Support because I need help setting it up for my cell phone. It was super easy to fill out the help form, so I think chances are good I’ll get the help I need. I’ve got my fingers crossed that soon I will be couponing with my cell phone! Update: I’m good to go with couponing on my cell phone! I got an email from Customer Support the same day, and when I tried registering again it worked. Please see my update below about your options to receive or not receive text alerts.

I’ve never heard of Peet’s Coffee & Tea, but according to their store locations list my readers in California, Colorado, Illionois, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Washington are enjoying this house of fine beverages. So I wanted to pass along this great cell phone coupon.
I can’t wait to hear from anyone who has actually used a coupon from Cellfire! Please come back and post a comment to tell me about your experience! I see this cell phone couponing as part of the new digital couponing era we are entering.
Update 6/25/08: I have successfully signed-up with Cellfire. When I registered on my phone I had the option to say “no” (default) or “yes” to “Send me text alerts about new offers on Cellfire Express (max 4x/month)”. I said “yes” just to see how easy it would be to change my mind, I also opted to receive emails about new offers. I got a new text message saying I had opted to receive alerts and I could reply with “STOP” to end this service. I then replied “STOP” and got another text message confirming I would no longer receive text alerts. So far I am pleased will Cellfire and I’ll report back after I use that Hollywood Video coupon!

Good question – the computer automatically deducts the Cellfire coupon, the cashier probably does not have the option to override this if you want to use a paper coupon instead. I do not recommend planning on using a paper coupon and an eCoupon on one product – but if it happens it will probably work unless your store has fixed their computer system to reject one of those coupons. It's an imperfect system and there is some "gray area" – I just don't want people to blatantly plan on abusing the system.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

What happens if we want to use our paper coupon and not the cell fire one because the paper one is less off? How do we scan our card (for store savings) without it using both?

I guess it didn’t occur to me that everyone doesn’t know about cell coupons! I’ve signed up for the weekly Borders coupon (usually good th-sun) which you just show the cashier. I’ve also signed up for Redbox texts. They usually send me a free movie code on Mondays – only good for that night, but it’s still free! BTW, I signed up for both online.

Bummer 1-800 flowers was the only offer in my area. Well, maybe they will expand soon. I did not sign up as I am wondering how often they would send messages to my cell. I could see it getting annoying if it was too much.

Peets rocks! It’s the best coffee ever – strong without being bitter. Beats Starbucks flat. Peets is one of the reasons I miss CA. (I live in Kansas City where there are no Peets.) Would love for you to find some mail order Peets freebies!
