Back in February, the news dropped that Quotient planned on replacing COUPONS.COM with the relaunch of the SHOPMIUM app by year-end 2022. That sparked speculation that the printed coupons would also go away. While we still don't have the whole picture yet, it appears they are ramping up a beta test of the SHOPMIUM app.
I just got an email inviting me to apply. So check your emails for the invitation from coupons.com. My email was entitled " coupons.com's cooking up something new! Wanna try it?".
A few questions were about whether you are a US resident and about whether you had or were willing to get a PAYPAL account, so I am optimistic it may pay out automatically like the CDC app does instead of accumulating. The beta download period stated had already passed, so I am not sure if they are behind schedule or just on a second wave of invites, but current details mention they are looking for applicants to download and use the new app three times between September 1 and October 21.
(Shopmium launched in 2014 in the US and shut down in 2017. The SHOPMIUM app has been being tested in Europe for several years )
I received the same email back on Aug 30th. I applied, but have never heard anything back so I guess I wasn't selected. Oh well. Hopefully someone else here will be and will share their thoughts with the rest of us!

May not mean anything yet. I only have a lifetime earnings of $116.14, so perhaps they are just accumulating applications based on CDC app lifetime redemption amounts. I will let you know if I hear anything of course.
@Rickibotta You're right, they may still be gathering applications, esp in light of the fact that we're nearing the end of the date range they mentioned in the email. My lifetime earnings with CDC is $316.57. I'm sure there are many others with much higher earnings however. I didn't start using the app until SavingStar went away, which I'm thinking was around 2020. If I end up being approved I will certainly come back and respond to this thread so we can all share any thoughts/opinions.
@Rickibotta I was selected for the beta, but honestly, the only thing I did was cash in on the free Pillsbury cookies. The offers say you cannot combine with other offers and they are duplicates of digitals or what I already have on CDC, so I don't use it often if at all.
So did they automatically pay directly to PAYPAL like the CDC app does?
I'm assuming they must be planning on doing something differently than the existing CDC app. Otherwise, why replace and rebrand CDC with SHOPMIUM.
@Rickibotta Yes payment directly to paypal. I'm a bit underwhelmed as of now, but as I said, I haven't found the need to buy multiples of the same item and submit 1 to CDC, 1 Target Circle offer (for example) and 1 Shopmium offer yet.
I just got an email from Coupons.com informing me that I was in for Shopmium.
I got the original email for the application for the beta on September 30, completed the same day, and received notification I was accepted today, October 7.
All this being said, the link they gave me to launch from my mobile takes me to Google Play with a message that 'This item isn't available in your country' So while they say I am in, I'm not really since I can't install.
UPDATE: (10/8/22 @ 6:30 AM) - I have successfully installed the app now. I had sent them an email reply mentioning my issue attempting to download the app, but have not heard back. I continued checking off an on by clicking the provided link, and magically there was an INSTALL button a little bit ago.
I guess i was in the "1st wave" of applicants to qualify to beta test Shopmium (my You're In email was 9/1) When I clicked the link, I was able to download, but the entire app was in French! The next day I got an email that I was sent the wrong link, so I clicked and got the message you did; that it wasn't available in my country. There was no contact link or any way to.get in touch with cs, so I deleted the app until it's out of Beta!
