Frequently asked questions
What is Blue Kangaroo?
Blue Kangaroo is a personal shopper that searches the online shopping universe for deals you care about most - deals based on your personal needs and interests. You can set up mobile versions of “the Roo” to notify you when you’re near an in-store deal you care about. And you can share deals with other users, including friends and family, and see the deals they want to share. Both the website and mobile apps are completely free.
Why is Blue Kangaroo the best way to discover deals online and in-store?
Blue Kangaroo partners with thousands of national chains, daily-deal providers, flash-sale sites, loyalty reward programs, and local merchants to bring you the most comprehensive range of online and in-store deals available anywhere. But what makes the Blue Kangaroo shopping experience so much better than conventional deal and coupon websites and apps is that it personalizes the best offers just for you, making recommendations based on your preferences.
How many stores partner with Blue Kangaroo?
Blue Kangaroo partners with over 1,800 national chains, including department stores (Macy’s, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, among many others), clothing stores (Gap, Ann Taylor, The Children’s Place, etc.), specialty stores (Best Buy, Crate & Barrel, PetSmart, etc.), and online-only stores (Zappos, drugstore.com, 1-800-Flowers, etc.). We feature deals from over 100,000 local shops, restaurants, and services in North America.

What is a Find?
Finds include deals, coupons, and anything you can buy recommended by the Roo, your friends, and our user base at large. The more stores and categories you “Fave,” the better your recommended Finds will be, and the more friends you follow, the more finds you’ll see in your Followed Finds.
What is RooMail?
Lots of people subscribe to emails from favorite stores to keep up with the latest offers. If you’re one of them, you’ve probably been annoyed by how fast these mailings clutter up your personal inbox. With RooMail, you can see (or ignore) all of your marketing emails at once, receive them in a bundled email once per day, or just see them when you want to see them, like when you’re shopping at a website and browsing that store’s Finds on Blue Kangaroo. Click here to set up Gmail and Yahoo Mail sweeping or see your personalized bluekangaroo.com email address that you can use to subscribe to future shopping newsletters.
