Why are my search results different between the mobile app and online?

The online search function is more comprehensive. It includes: deals that can be printed and redeemed at merchants (show and save offers); discounted gift card offers that can be ordered ahead of time; daily deals that have been aggregated from 3rd party providers like Groupon and Living Social. The mobile app search only includes offers that can be "shown" on your device to the merchant at the time of use. Mobile search results are limited to a maximum of 50 offers based on the user's location or a specific zip code. All mobile results can be filtered by category and flagged as favorites for easy future access.
