Multiple Codes in the Shopping Basket
Recently we made an
exciting change to the shopping basket. If you have a gift certificate
code AND a discount code, you can use both on one order!
If you're not sure what the difference is between a discount code and a
gift certificate code, here's a brief explanation: A gift certificate
code is a code that you may have received as a gift from someone, or as
a prize for winning one of our excellent contests. A gift certificate
will be a string of random characters and (usually) begin with the
letters GC or CS.
A discount code is one that we send out from time to time to give a
percentage off or dollar amount off an order.
If you have a discount code and a gift certificate code, you can now use
both codes on your order. Here's how you can do it:
code into the box at the bottom of the shopping basket page. Click the
'Apply Code' button.
You'll see the code
applied to your basket.
the second code into the same box at the
bottom of the shopping basket page. Click the 'Apply Code' button again.
You'll see the second
code applied to your basket. You can remove either code at anytime by
clicking the 'Remove Code' button.
When you're ready to process your order,
click the 'Check out' button, check out of the site, and download
Please be sure to check the amount due, and that it meets your
expectations, before completing your order. If you have any questions,
send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org before finalizing your order.
Currently you can enter one gift certificate code and one discount code
per order. If you have more than one gift certificate code that you'd
like to use, we'll process those for you manually. Send an email
to email@example.com. In
that email, include the following information:
**The total of the items in your shopping basket
**The total that you expect to pay after the codes are applied
**The codes that you would like to use
We'll check your basket and your codes and either process the order for
you, or let you know how to proceed.
Because we're now drawing a distinction between a "gift certificate
code" and a "discount code," we'll be sure to clearly identify each code
when it's mailed to you. While you can pair a gift certificate code and
a discount code, multiple discount codes cannot be used on one order.
We're excited about this new and improved feature in the shopping
basket. Should you have any questions or concerns, let us know!
