Article Body:
Personally, I don't really like coupons. I rarely use the things. In
fact, I come close to going berserk in the check-out line at my local
grocery store when I see a thick stack of coupons being pulled out by the
person ahead of me.

But, even if you are like me, many people do like coupons and coupons are
definitely an effective sales tool. So are rebates. And unlike the
grocery store check-out line, there's no waiting in electronic check-out
lines.

One of the benefits of using coupons to promote your products and
services is that you can place printable coupons right on your website.
You can also offer cash rebates on your products in the same way.

Some shopping cart systems, such as the one I use, <a
href="http://www.KickStartCart.com">Kick Start Cart</a>, have a coupon
module that generates coupon and discount links. These discounts are
automatically applied at check-out when someone gets to my site by
clicking on one of these links. When clicking on one of these links,
customers are taken to check-out and the coupon or rebate information is
automatically populates the proper discount fields. This little step is
also a time saver, so your customers will be doubly appreciative.

People like to get good deals on the things they buy. Using electronic
coupons and rebates is one good way of doing this. And, as a bonus, some
people shop specifically for discounted products, so if you are known as
a merchant who gives coupons from time to time, you'll be on the "watch
list" of these bargain shoppers.
