As an adware program, CoupontasticOffers’s only purpose is to display commercial advertisements. You can forget about it offering you the best deals and discounts. Since this program is not associated with big online retailers or small-time ones for that matter. It is impossible for it to obtain information regarding prices and discounts. CoupontasticOffers will display random advertisements ignoring actual great deals that may be on offer. This stripped-down adware program is only capable of displaying advertisements in the form of coupons, pop-ups, and banners. While it is apt to redirect to legitimate websites, we have a suspicion that this program might also feature some unreliable links as well.
Our researchers say that like all JustPlugIt-based programs, CoupontasticOffers is able to gather certain information about you. This information is not particularly sensitive and involves things, such as browsing history and search queries, Internet Protocol addresses, as well as technical information of a device. The collected information is used for administrative, promotional and advertising purposes, but it does not significantly affect the advertisements you are subjected to. Therefore, this adware program is not a welcomed shopping assistant but an undesirable adware application, and we invite you to delete it whenever you are ready.

Since this program is not associated with legitimate online retailers it is impossible for it automatically promote the most relevant deals. This program does collect information that can be used for improving CoupontasticOffers’s ad-displaying capabilities, but the reality is very different. So we invite you to remove this program and try practicing safer browsing in the future.
