This Consumer Powerhouse Rides a Monster Trend

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Andrew Tonner, technology editor and analyst, and Austin Smith, consumer-goods editor and analyst, discuss topics around the investing world.

It's getting involved in cell phone-based coupons, which not only demonstrates its willingness to adopt cutting-edge business moves but will also bring it valuable and targeted consumer data.
