Jaspreet, Thank you so much! I found so many options that has so many features and functions that I just didn’t need. I really was looking hard for a simple, easy to use coupon plugin that would just put the coupons I needed into posts and allow me to edit/change them without editing each post. This has really made sharing coupons with my readers a lot easier! And, your customer service is outstanding. Thank you for getting back with me so quickly on each and every one of my questions, even when I had a ton at the very beginning!

Thank you so much for your help Jas! I really appreciate your support and your plugin is simply incredible!
Important, Please read
Cost of this Plugin starts from $99.00 (NON REFUNDABLE). There are other options available. Be sure to check out the Pricing section (Scroll down). I think the cost is reasonable and it helps me pay my bills. But you can always contact me for a Discount Voucher, only if you think this plugin is worth less. No refund could be issued because of accidental purchase or change of mind and if you haven’t tried the lite version. If lite version does not work for you then PRO may not either. Please try it out before you buy this version.
I can fill this page with many testimonials but that’s not the intention. Intention is that You, my friend return from my blog happy.

Tip on Search engines
If you would like search engines not to index plugin’s print page please use robots.txt file in your website root to exclude the print page. Just try cliking on the print icon and see if what URL is posted back to you and put that link structure in your robots.txt file.
Depending on the permalink structure this is one example to do that (read more about robots.txt optimization on wordpress website here)
