    In these rough economic times, everyone's trying their best to save money. As I make my grocery list, for example, I've been trying to set aside time to go online and print out coupons. The only problem with this is that I feel guilty with the amount of paper I'm wasting. A 1"-sized coupon wastes an entire sheet of printer paper!
    I think that people would be interested in a coupon application. The shopper could go online to find the applicable coupon, and then present it to the cashier, where it is then scanned right on the screen! This would save the iPhone user money and it would save paper! (green and more green!)

    Im pretty sure I remember seeing two kinds of these apps on the AppStore. Try and search again, you might find it.

    You mean, Safari, or Mail?
    Making a server to hold every coupon around would be huge, time consuming, and impossible.

    scanning the coupon wouldn't work would it? I mean the screen surface would just bounce the scanners light back at the scanner?
