I have been looking for a coupon plugin to promote some affiliate offers and I spent some time researching several plugins that seemed to be very popular in the WordPress repository and in the affiliate community.
I was looking for something lightweight, easy to setup, multiple display options, widget, deals page and countdown timer.
The first plugin I tested was WP Coupons and Deals which is available free in the WordPress repository but I purchased the pro version to test the features in full.
The second plugin was Coupons Plugin, also free in the WordPress repository and also purchased pro version to test out all of the features. I am having issues with this plugin and the developer said that an update is due in the next few days.
The third plugin was WP Coupons, not available in the WordPress repository and only available to purchase.
This post is a work in progress, I have tested WP Coupons and Deals in full and have written a partial review which will be posted shortly.
