NYC Startup Texts Coupons To Users’ Phones

Co-founded by Landy Ung and her boyfriend Wan Hsi Yuan in August 2007, 8coupons.com enables NYC merchants to text coupons to the 60,000 users registered with the Web site.  Merchants pay a $265 monthly subscription fee and can either post their own coupons or work with 8coupons.com for "Ocho Locho" deals which have some variation of eight in the price.

Ung wouldn’t reveal to amNY how much money the site is bringing in, but she has quit her day job and the business is now based out of a Midtown office, not her home.
