Saletastic.com has announced a service whereby you can get an RSS feed of coupons from over 130 merchants. You do need to create an account (to manage your options), but you do not need to provide an email address. You can also add the coupons to your Yahoo, MSN, or Google Portal (ig) homepage. Very nice.
Here’s an example feed: http://www.saletastic.com/rss/userrss/test.rss
The RSS 2.0 feed has a couple of minor validation problems (as of this writing), but all-in-all a nice way to go. Since you don’t know until you sign up, here’s an exhaustive list of the merchants who currently provide coupons through the service:
