Here is our quick guide on how to use a coupon code. There are a wide range of coupons and codes available. In this article we are just going to discuss applying online coupon codes.
Types of coupon code.
A coupon code is also known as a promotional coupon code, promo code, discount code, offer code or any variation of this. In practice they are all the same.
There are also different offer types including:
- % off coupon codes.
- $ off coupon codes.
- Free Shipping coupon codes.
- Free gift coupon codes.
Some coupons have minimum order values, such as 30% off when you spend $100 or 10% off when you spend $20 or more.
Using the coupon code.
In most situations the coupon code is used in the final stages of checkout. Usually after you have confirmed the products that you would like to buy. It is often a visible entry box, but sometimes is just text, requiring a click to reveal the coupon code box.
From there it is simply a matter of inserting the code (Usually they are not case sensitive) and hitting ‘return’ or clicking ‘submit’.
In most cases the discount will be automatically taken off with the deducted figure or saving highlighted.
You will then just be able to proceed to the final confirmation and payment page.
