How Sources Its Coupons

TIME Partners with Savings United to provide coupons to our readers. The partnership between TIME and Savings United started in 2023 with the goal of assisting shoppers in saving money on their online purchases—a key complement to TIME’s existing service journalism, which includes the TIME Stamped site for consumer reviews. From the beginning of the collaboration between TIME and Savings United, our mission has been to provide high-quality discount codes and coupons. Throughout our partnership, TIME and Savings United have both contributed to developing our strategy to better serve shoppers.

How we curate our coupons

Savings United is a global leader in the couponing industry with over 10 years of experience working with well-known and respected media publishers. Partnership managers from Savings United continually negotiate exclusive discounts and limited-time offers from top brands. Savings United manages relationships with CJ, Rakuten, Impact, as well as other large online retailers like Walmart, Expedia, Samsung, and Doordash.

Every day, Savings United’s dedicated team of 25+ experts searches through its portfolio from over 2,000 stores to bring TIME shoppers the best deals and newest trends in promotions. Couponing experts carefully select coupons and deals, curate them, and verify they work properly before sending them to TIME for review.

TIME and Savings United work together to ensure that the offers and deals are relevant to our readers’ interests. Once Savings United has submitted new coupons and discounts, TIME staff accepts or declines the proposed offers and runs a second round of quality control to ensure TIME’s readers will benefit from these verified coupons. A coupon or discount may be removed if it’s not used by readers.

TIME editors decide how the coupons are shared with readers and work to make sure our partnership upholds TIME’s high standards for quality.

What types of discount codes and coupons can you find on

  • Coupons: These are unique discount codes that must be entered by the customer at checkout when purchasing at an online retailer.
  • Offers: These may include percentage discounts or other custom benefits available in online stores.
  • Shipping: These codes may offer free delivery or a discount on shipping services.

Understanding Exclusive Offers

Savings United negotiates exclusive deals and offers with brands in its portfolio. This means that we are able to offer deals and discounts that are not found on most other coupon sites. The term “exclusive” can refer to special deals that you will only find on or refer to deals that are unique to Savings United. In both scenarios, this terminology pays reference to the fact that we offer our visitors unique deals tailored to the audience of that visitors may not be able to find elsewhere.
