Coupon

Coupon on the Sunday newspaper was so popular when I was growing up in California. We would run out in the driveway to get our newspaper and check out all the coupons we can use on an upcoming sale. We would cut up the ones we needed and discard the ones in the recycling bin. After many years has passed cutting coupons in the Sunday paper was no longer the trend people would receive coupon through email from promotion in certain stores we had subscribed from. Years later everything became paperless and when you enter a grocery store they would give you a print out on a coupon of certain product you have recently purchased. You would become a member of the Entertainment Coupon Book that comes with lots of coupons in restaurant, hotel, car service and etc. Now our coupons comes from our phone that you can just get by giving out your phone number and register it at the store.
