Marketing to Moms: Coupons Still Rule in All Forms

March 27, 2014 § Leave a comment

Moms seem to have the most desire to find bargains and clip coupons.  No doubt it’s because households with children under 18 spend more money than households with no children or with children 18+.

Gallup-Daily-Spending-Americans-With-Without-Children-Mar2014A Gallup poll shows that across all incomes, households with children just spend more – on all types of things.  So it is no surprise that Moms are the most active users of coupons.

Moms are seeking discounts, whether they get them from an app or still cut them out of the newspaper.  In a new report from eMarketer, Moms are seen to use coupons more than non-Moms.

170518The Allrecipes.com chart shows how printed coupons still reign, but coupon apps are still an important part of the mix.  As the smartphone becomes the tool of choice for many, apps will continue to grow in use.  Moms appear to be always on the alert for deals and ways to save money.

Also important in the total mix are the online saver sites.  Womensforum reported that 37.8% of mothers reported using the food or frugal website/blogger sites that share coupons.

Being frugal is still cool and may be a residual effect of the Great Recession for some time to come.  But certainly, households with children are looking for ways to stretch their dollar.
