For fun and exploration

Since I put out the news about working on Fliptrazon, some of my friends and acquaintances have been a little underwhelmed by my ‘startup’. The general comment is like –

“I thought you were going to do something impactful”

This always gets me thinking. And sometimes worried. Life is short. Am I making the best use of my time here? So let me try and make a case for doing something that may not look impactful (tl;dr – for fun).

Say hello to Fliptrazon

We (me and Sunit) have been working on this project since the past few months – and we’re finally ready to share – meet our coupon search bot called Fliptrazon.

It has been up and running for a while now, and we’ve gradually become loyal users of our own product. We’re hoping that more people will find this to be a useful, indispensible addition in their online shopping arsenal. Especially the ones who like to pinch pennies.

You might be wondering, there are already countless other sites that list coupons such as CouponDunia, CouponRaja, Grabon, and funny trivia – almost all relative names in hindi are covered too – there is CouponKaka, CouponMama, CouponChacha, CouponBaba, CouponPapa and so on. Anyway.. I digress! We made Fliptrazon because the existing coupon sites are on the sucky side, they

  • are filled with ads
  • are slow
  • hide all coupons behind multiple clicks

Fliptrazon is

  • Ad free
  • super fast. and we’ll make it faster still, we promise
  • all coupons, always visible

Here’s the difference in a screenshots from a popular site vs Fliptrazon :

Popular coupon site: ads, popups, hidden coupons. boo!

Fliptrazon: no ads, clean, uncluttered, always visible coupons. Yay!

We have some fun plans that will make finding (and applying) coupons much easier on mobile. That’s the other reason why we’re making this. Had been itching to do some hands on dev for a while.

Try it out, would love to hear feedback. Cheers!

PS. why the weird name? it is easy to find a domain for weird names, and it sounds like a legit robot name. free beer / coffee for anyone who guesses how this name came to be though.
