Woman Making it Rich in Coupons

Elena Potoupa moves a mile a minute.

To label her a multi-tasker would be a gross understatement. "I really love doing simultaneously a hundred things but also, I'm doing them well." Potoupa's a 28-year-old Russian immigrant who's taking the Internet coupon world by storm.

Her wow-coupons.com web site offers an extensive list of in-store and online coupons, from Borders to Ann Taylor, Target, even overstock.com and that's not all. She also offers grocery and restaurant coupons. If you were to sum up her degrees, the number of languages she commands, and her web site, you'd probably arrive at one word: Wow!

Even her customers are echoing her web site's namesake, according to Potoupa. "They're saying, 'Wow..I really understand the name of WOW.' Because you want the person to get the experience of 'Wow, this is helpful. Wow, I can save.' You know?"

And companies are jumping on the WOW train. Poutopa says, "My biggest profit comes from two major online businesses, which is overstock.com and target.com." How does Potoupa make money? when people use her online or in store coupons she gets a commission from her partnerships with companies like target.com, overstock.com, and keycode.com. She even offers advertising on her site. "This month is going to be at least $10,000 net."

Potoupa is shocked by the growth of her web site. She's even fielding calls from potential investors and her company hasn't even gone public yet. "Do you have stock options? this is really funny, people are already asking that so some people are thinking of investment of it. I really want to make this baby a genius. I'm hoping for the best."
