A coupon code (or, as it’s sometimes called, a promo code) is a series of letters, numbers or a combination of both, that online shoppers can enter when they checkout online in order to receive a discount on their purchase.
A voucher is a token you receive from a shop in order to obtain a free product or discount. Most vouchers are distributed via email or online, and must be printed and brought in person to the store in order to be applied. The term ‘coupon’ is also sometimes used to describe these vouchers.
At Flipit, we collect all active coupon codes from a huge variety of online retailers and put them into an easy-to-use overview to help you save. You can find and apply a coupon code on our website by following these simple guidelines:
The duration of a coupon code varies depending on the store. Some codes, such as those offered to new customers, may run indefinitely; others simply run until supplies run out. The Flipit team also include expiry dates with each coupon code, so expired coupons should disappear as soon as they run out.
Online retailers use coupon codes in order to differentiate themselves from other shops and to get ahead of competition. They also use them to give something back to the customer: to reward first-time buyers, for instance, or to offer customers making a larger purchase a discount. In return, the retailer gets happy shoppers who are likely to return, a better knowledge of the sort of products customers want, and a better understanding of consumer behaviour.
Coupon codes can offer different kinds of savings. For example, you might find a code that gives you 10% off your entire order at a shop, or a certain percentage off a particular product (e.g. 15% off outdoor furniture). Other discounts include a fixed amount of money deducted from your total purchase price, free shipping, or even a free gift with your order. The list goes on!
Flipit.com is a portal that keeps you up to date with savings on various online shops, but it doesn’t sell products directly. If you experience any issues with a product, you should always contact the store directly. We are unfortunately unable to solve any issues you might have with a purchase. However, it is important to us that our customers are satisfied with the transactions they make through Flipit, so if you have any issues that you think should be brought to our attention, please get in touch with our editors.
