What is a promotional code?
Promo codes are a great way to save money. There are two main types of online shopping promotions that you will see while browsing at CouponBoy.net. One is called the coupon or promotional code, the other is a link only or discount promotion. Most online merchants offer one or the other when running online promotions.
- How do I redeem a promo or coupon code?
Depending on the merchant, there are a few different places to enter the coupon code. In some cases, the coupon can be entered while in the shopping cart. Other times, the coupon is entered on the order review page prior to checkout. Look around carefully for the coupon "submit" area the first time you purchase from any website.
- How do I redeem a linked coupon or product?
A linked coupon does not have an actual coupon code to activate the promotion, but instead a special link. When you click the link to the online store, you will get the discount automatically when you check out.
- What if I don't see any place to put the code?
Check and see if the website has a FAQ (frequently asked questions) page that offers the information.
- How do I know if a "coupon code" is working?
Usually the merchant will have a page showing how much you are being charged for the merchandise, how much is being discounted because you submitted your discount code, and any shipping fees that may be applied. This should show on an order page before you submit approval of the charges. If you enter the coupon code and do not see the discount on the order review page, do not place the order.
- How do I know if a "linked promotion" is working?
Often times a linked promotion will take you directly to the product that is being promoted at a special price or the page that advertises your discount. If it does not then look for it on your order page before you accept the transaction as a desired purchase.
- Why doesn't the coupon work?
Many times merchants will omit an expiration date so that they can monitor the promotion and discontinue it in the event that it receives more response than they had planned. The online merchants can alter or discontinue any promotion at any time and it is virtually impossible to stay 100 percent on top of what so many merchants are doing with their promotions.
