I'm sure the coupons are vouchers. I found following in the web:
'... How do you measure the success of a coupon drop? Is it the redemption rate? ... ' (for URL see Reference)

DROP recalls Flugblätter, Flugzettel, but we can't have Fluggutscheine !!!
Drop means distribution (although not in the Oxford Dictionary!)

"Wurfsendung von Rabatt-Coupons"

Found the following:

...For example, he says, a brick and mortar retailer issuing a discount coupon relying solely on demographics, would send all consumers in an area a 10 cent coupon on a product and see increased profits of 10 %. Going a step further and basing a "coupon drop" on information from the last purchase increased relative profit to 60 %...

I also found door drop (Wurfsendung) in a marketing dictionary (PONS).
