promotioncodes

A promo code is an online coupon that can be used to get a discount or deal at a retailer's website. Depending on the retailer, a promo code may be called a number of different things including coupon code, discount code, gift code, voucher code, or promotion code. No matter what the name, all of these codes provide a discount, promotion or benefit of some sort, to the shopper.

In recent years promo codes have gained popularity. Almost every online retailer offers them, and even though promo codes are very common – application of them can still be confusing. Listed below is a general guide to finding and applying your promo code.

Step 1 – Finding Your Promo Code

Typically, customers will receive their promo code in an email, advertisement or through a search online. Another good place to find promo codes is on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter. Many retailers will post new deals directly to their social pages. To simplify your search, we strongly recommend starting with a search on Promocodewatch.com. We work tirelessly to curate deals from all over the web.

Step 2 – Where To Apply Your Promo Code

Once you’ve selected your items, navigate to your shopping cart or bag. Review this page carefully. Retailers vary on the page they choose to put the promo code box in. Make sure you have looked over this page very carefully before proceeding to checkout so that you don't miss the chance to use your promo code. If you do find the promo code box on this page, navigate back to your code, highlight it – right click and select copy. Once you have copied your code, go back to the promo code box and paste your code inside.

Tips

  • If you can not find a promo code anywhere on the shopping cart/bag page – try entering your code into the gift card portion of the checkout pages. Some retailers prefer to utilize this gift card box for their promo codes as well.
  • Some sites may hide the promo code box, requiring you to click a link (often in very small print) to make the promo code box appear.

Step 3 – Completing Your Order

It's very important that you review your final order to ensure the right promo code was applied to your order. Sometimes a store may automatically apply a promo code. In an instance such as this, the customer will not need to apply a code. If you find a promo code with a better deal or a promotion better suited towards your purchase, you can often remove this automatically generated code and replace with the code of your choice.

Customers should never assume that their code was automatically applied or that the correct discount or promotion was applied. If your code did not work, it's unlikely a store will go back later and apply the credit or promotion to your order.
