Over the past decade, smartphones have evolved the human consumer to become constantly engaged in the world; this includes news, work, and social media outlets.  Marketing campaigns are focusing more on using mobile ads and coupons as the tool to increase traffic and sales vs. print or other media. There is a lot of buzz around mobile deal redemption statistics considering in 2015, 11 million coupons were delivered digitally (Juniper) and 65 percent of consumers redeemed mobile coupons within 5 minutes (KouponMedia).  This doesn’t mean that the days of snipping print coupons are over by any means, it just means that savvy shoppers are using more than just scissors to cut out and redeem meaningful deals.


There are mobile deal redemption statistics to fit every generation, income level, retail location and even speed of mobile redemption.  Here are just a few to show that the right mobile deal equates to increased consumer motivation and spending.


  • 39% of customers spend more if they receive a personalized mobile coupon, (KouponMedia).


  • Consumers saved $3.4 billion by redeeming coupons in 2015,  (Valassis).
