Last year, I was inundated with emails from shopping, group coupon and deal websites. It was driving me crazy, so I created a rule to re-route them all to my trash folder. But then I felt like I was missing out on the deals.
Then I found out about Shopilly. It’s a free website service for managing all those shopping email coupons and deals. When you set up an account, you get a Shopilly email address that you can use to re-route all those emails to Shopilly instead of your inbox. Then Shopilly will showcase all the deals and emails in a Pinterest-like image gallery called the Visual Inbox that’s easier to browse than going through a regular email inbox.
I can even browse brands and follow them (instead of signing up for an email newsletter) and view deals for each brand. And you can favorite deals to buy later. The user interface is just so intuitive and easy to use – the web geek in me coming out here – and I love that I can visually organize all my deals and coupons. It’s like a virtual corkboard for my coupons.
When you make purchases through your favorite shopping sites, use your Shopilly email address to manage all your purchase receipts in one place.
I’ve already been going through my accounts at Groupon, Living Social, Banana Republic, etc. to route them all to Shopilly.
Here’s a quick look.
