Last weekend I attended a media event with several other bloggers at the Brio Tuscan Grill in Plantation and the Westfield Broward Mall to learn about the new Couwalla coupon app. We started our afternoon enjoying on the amazingly delicious appetizers at Brio Tuscan Grill, a new restaurant in Plantation. There were 3 types of bruchetta, calamari, and spinach dip. The Beef Carpaccio was my favorite but I really liked everything I tried. I ordered a steak for my lunch and it was cooked perfectly and the sauteed veggies and diced sweet potato were a nice accompaniment.
And the desserts! Oh the desserts! Full disclosure, I’m dieting so I ordered a cup of fruit but my oh my the desserts looked delicious!
While we ate we had the opportunity to talk with the creators of the Couwalla app as well as coupon guru and Miami Dolphins player, Keith Sims. Keith gave us some couponing tips and shared with us how he saves money with coupons. With his money savings skills, Keith is the perfect spokesperson for Couwalla.
So what is Couwalla?
Right now Couwalla is only available in South Florida but they are quickly expanding to other markets and will have over 45,000 coupons to save on apparel and restaurants by next month.
Download the Couwalla app to your smartphone. Open up the Couwalla app on your smartphone and it will show you all the coupons available in your area.
You can also search for coupons by category.
Add the coupons you like to “My Coupons” and then simply have the cashier scan them when you get to the register. Nothing to clip. No searching for coupons online. Easy peasy! In just the last week since I stared using Couwalla I found several coupons that I hadn’t seen elsewhere. Love that!
With Couwalla the consumer is in control, not the advertiser. Another great feature of Couwalla is the “Wallet” where you can store all of your store loyalty card numbers. No more carrying around a keychain full of scan cards. With Couwalla you can store them all in the app and simple show the app to the cashier to scan your loyalty card.
Another one of my favorite things about Couwalla is “Couwalla Cares”, a philanthropic program in which Couwalla will donate money to charities per download of Couwalla. Couwalla chooses a different charity each month to give money to. This month they are donating to the Alzheimer’s Family Center Inc. located in South Florida. In February Couwalla’s Couwalla Cares charity will be St. Jude.
