New York, New York (PressExposure) October 20, 2011 -- Black Friday shoppers typing the search term "HSN Coupon Code" into their favorite search engine are far from alone, the coupon code site ShopGala.com reports.
According to historical data of website traffic, visitors to ShopGala.com who reach the site by searching for "HSN Coupon Code" skyrocket on Black Friday - the day-after-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza that often brings influxes of cash to online and brick and mortar retailers. Google Trends confirms ShopGala's data: searches for "HSN Coupon Code" more than doubled from October to December last year.
Andy Powell of ShopGala.com notes that HSN is one of the most popular online retailers on the net -even for visitors who don't watch their programs on their Home Shopping Network television channel. Powell states that, "HSN has reinvented itself as an alternative to Amazon and other online retail giants. They sell everything from jewelry to handbags to makeup. Shoppers that are on the hunt for HSN coupon codes may not have even seen an infomercial for that product on TV. Many people browse and shop on HSN.com and then stop by ShopGala.com to see the latest HSN coupon codes we have to offer."
What kinds of discounts are available to internet shoppers that type "HSN Coupon Code" into ShopGala's search function? Although HSN coupon codes are in a near-constant state of flux, Powell adds that shoppers can expect to find discounts off of popular products, including skin care and electronics. However, free shipping is one of the most popular HSN coupon codes that visitors use. "Many online retailers have added free shipping to their Black Friday marketing mix to make themselves stand out from the competition. However, free shipping isn't always built into their website. Shoppers often need an HSN coupon code to get free shipping as HSN.com -a coupon we makes sure is available to our visitors on Black Friday", Powell adds.
Powell notes that the global recession may add fuel to the fire of "HSN Coupon Code" searches for 2011's Black Friday: "With many Americans out of work, we've noticed that more people are taking the time to seek out coupon codes for their favorite online stores. In fact, coupon codes may be one of the few areas that see an increase in activity during a recession. Although we don't have a crystal ball, we do expect to see the amount of people searching for "HSN coupon code" to increase this year compared to past years."
