Lightning Savings is a program that promises to provide you with various coupons on such websites as kmart.com, expedia.com, zales.com, etc. and thus help you save some money and time. The application itself has been published by Innovative Apps, which is known for such suspicious applications as Deal Boat, Deal Spy, Coupon Locker, and the like. If you have ever encountered any of these programs, you will definitely know that there is no point in trusting Lightning Savings as well because it is just a typical advertising-supported application that is just going to flood your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers with various commercial ads. Unfortunately, these ads are not only intrusive, but also might expose you to threats, which is why we recommend that you get rid of Lightning Savings as soon as possible.
