The operation of coupon codes



A coupon code (or as it is sometimes called, promo code) is a special number or code that shoppers can enter at the checkout of an online store in order to receive a discount.

A voucher is a token you receive from a store in order to obtain a free product or discount. If the voucher is distributed online or by email, normally you must print it out before using it in a store. The word ‘coupon’ is also sometimes used to describe paper discount tokens.

The duration of a coupon code varies widely depending on how long the store would like it to be made available. Some codes, such as those offered to new customers, often run indefinitely. The Flipit team apply expiry dates when adding coupon codes to the site, so expired coupons should disappear as soon as they run out.

Online stores use couponing codes in order to differentiate themselves from other stores 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 with a discount in some form. What the store gets in return is happy, returning shoppers, and also a better knowledge of the sort of products customers want and an understanding of consumer behavior.

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 store, or a certain percentage off a particular product (e.g. 15% off garden furniture). Other discounts include a fixed amount of $USD 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 stores, but it doesn’t sell products directly. If you experience any issues with a product, you should always contact the store directly. We have no direct contact with stores, and are therefore 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.

  • - Read the terms and conditions carefully. It might be that the code is not valid with your particular chosen item, or you have not met the minimum spending requirement.
  • - Make sure you’ve entered the code correctly: coupon codes are case sensitive, and don’t involve any spaces between words.
  • - Some codes are exclusive to new customers. Are you already an existing customer? If not, you can sign up here!
