(WXYZ) - Forget trying to find online deals or cutting coupons, a new app and website brings you deals in your neighborhood instantly.
My Coupon Genie offers the kinds of deals that interest you. All you have to do go to the website or download the app on your smartphone. Android users can find the app on Google Play . iPhone users can find the app at the Apple App Store . From there, enter your zip code and how far you are willing to travel to get the deals. Then you search through 25 categories from dining to groceries to travel and click on the ones that interest you.
It takes a couple of minutes, but once you make your selections, your work is done. My Coupon Genie does the rest. It will deliver you daily deals, either by text or email, in the categories you selected.
Some deals are up for just a few hours. Other deals are up for as long as a month. To claim a coupon, show the retailer your smart phone or give them the membership ID number you're given when you register.
