How do websites like Coupons.com stay up to date?

Is there such thing as a manufacturers' coupons datafeed?

If I wanted to make a website like Coupons.com, would I have to manually load new coupons as they became available everyday or is there some sort of datafeed out there for this?

I think those websites work as affiliates for merchans who provide coupons through networks like Sas, Linkshare, CJ. Sas for example, provides tool like Goldencan which allows to keep the database of products/coupons on your site up to date. The process is automated however, merchant has to sign up first with e.g. Goldencan and pay them fee so not all the merchants use this tool.
You can also research Popshops - similar tool to Goldencan but service is free for merchant and fee is paid by affiliates.
