Did you know?
In 1990, downloadable Internet coupons and online coupons (eCoupons/digital coupons) originated from the invention of the Internet.
In 1887, Asa Candler, one of the partners of the Coca-Cola Company transformed Coca-Cola from an insignificant tonic into a profitable business using coupons. Candler had the company’s employees and sales representatives distribute complimentary coupons for Coca-Cola. Coupons were mailed to potential customers, placed in magazines and the company gave soda fountains free syrup to cover the costs of the free drinks. Between 1884 and 1913, one in nine Americans had received a free Coca-Cola, for a total of 8,500,000 free drinks. By 1895 Candler announced to shareholders that Coca-Cola was served in every state in the United States.
