Getting paid to shop with digital coupons

In case you missed it, I had a story in Sunday’s Work & Money section on the growing number of digital coupon tools available to shoppers.

The story is a good introduction to digital coupons and features local shopper, Lorrie Lane of North Raleigh.

“It adds an element of fun,” Lane said of her digital couponing, which took off in December 2012 when she purchased her smartphone.
