RetailMeNot, the country's biggest online coupon site, has just launched a Facebook app called Today's Top Deals, our Chicago site reports.
By "liking" the site's fan page, you get access to coupons, promo codes, and other online-only deals from RetailMeNot's biggest brands.
Why Facebook? “Social media continues to play a more heightened role in how we communicate to consumers about the more than half million available coupons we offer. The 'Today’s Top Deals' app will help us get the best deals to our fans on Facebook,” says a company rep.
So far the offerings are a leeetle skimpy, running more along the lines of "8-piece deluxe fragrance sampler" from Sephora, for example. But there's also a Bluefly exclusive in there for $20 off that could come in pretty handy, and gives us hope that as the app gets its legs, they'll be some great, click-worthy deals.
