Online coupon site finds online shoppers like online coupons

Advertisement

Have you ever used a discount coupon when doing online shopping? graph of japanese statisticsI suppose the key findings of this survey may be suspected of being biased since it is appearing on the coupon site BJam (parent company Fazer), but nonetheless this survey into internet shopping coupon usage revealed a few interesting nuggets of information.

Demographics

Between the 26th and 28th of October 2013 1,107 members of the Fastask monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. All the respondents had done internet shopping, 59.6% of them were male, 13.1% in their teens, 17.0% in their twenties, 18.0% in their thirties, 18.0% in their forties, 17.0% in their fifties and 17.0% aged sixty or over.

I use coupons when shopping online, if available, but most of my shopping is merely for domain names. I don’t know exactly what my wife, a perhaps more typical shopper, uses though, although I think she regularly uses money-off coupons.

Vast majority of coupon users influenced by coupons

How much do coupons affect new purchasing decisions? graph of japanese statisticsMobile Marketing Data Labo recently published the results of a survey into coupon usage, specifically looking at differences between smartphone and feature phone usage patterns.

Demographics

Between the 21st and 24th of February 2013 500 people who had used coupons were selected to complete the survey. Furthermore, 250 of these people selected were feature phone users, and the other 250 smartphone users. All were aged 20 or older, but no further demographics were provided.

I relatively rarely use coupons. I have a small repertoire of restaurants I like to visit, so I already know which allow coupons. Specifically, Satoyama Dining gives me a 10% off coupon if I complete the questionnaire after eating, and Kamakura Pasta (branches everywhere) who occasionally send me three 10% off coupons, each with slight variations on my name spelling!

Mobile phone discount coupons in Japan

What is the main reason why you don't use mobile phone coupons? graph of japanese statisticsNot discounts for mobile phones, but discount coupons accessed through mobile phones was the topic of this recent survey from Point On Research and reported on by japan.internet.com.

Demographics

On the 13th of April 2010 800 heavy users of mobile phones completed a mobile phone-based questionnaire. The sample was 50:50 male and female, 25.0% in their teens, 25.0% in their twenties, 25.0% in their thirties, and 25.0% in their forties.

I’m not a heavy user of my mobile phone, so my excuse for not using them, that the packet charges are more than the savings, does not apply to the heavy users who are probably all on unlimited use. Most of my coupons come from the computer-based internet or free papers.

Mobile phone coupon usage in Japan

This is a subject I’ve looked at a number of times, but I always find the results interesting. The subject is mobile phone coupons, counducted by Point On Research and reported on by japan.internet.com.

Demographics

On the 15th of September 2009 exactly 800 members of the Point On Research monitor group completed a mobile internet-based questionnaire. The sample was exactly 50:50 male and female, 20.0% in their teens, 20.0% in their twenties, 20.0% in their thirties, 20.0% in their forties, and 20.0% in their fifties.

The only mobile coupons I use are for Mister Donut, although recently they’ve been pretty poor, 20% off a second doughnut or the like. And they’ve also ended their half-price ice coffee promotion.

Mobile coupons mostly used for fast food in Japan

Would you want to use mobile phone coupons in the future? graph of japanese statisticsIn these tough economic times, one way of saving money is to collect coupons, so this recent survey from Point On Research and reported on by japan.internet.com looked at this very topic of mobile phone coupons.

Demographics

Over the 1st and 2nd of March 2009 exactly 1,000 mobile phone-using members of the Point On monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The sample was split exactly 50:50 male and female, and 20.0% in their teens, 20.0% in their twenties, 20.0% in their thirties, 20.0% in their forties, and 50.0% in their fifties.

Just at the weekend, and just in time for this survey, I got two mobile coupons, one for 100 yen off a doughnut and coffee set at Mister Donuts, and the other for a free men’s bath salts from the rather feminine chain of pricey bric-a-brac Afternoon Tea.

I’m not aware of any of the coupon sites mentioned in the last question, but that might be a good topic for Nihon Hacks or Frugalista Japan to investigate.
