There's something wrong with a coupon code. Who can I contact?

Having trouble with a coupon or promo code? Let us know by contacting us at contact@promocodes.com and we will check it out, so you can shop easy!

Can discounts be combined with one another?

Sometimes. Depending on the merchant and checkout process you can do a thing called "stacking" or using multiple coupons at checkout. "Stacking" is subject to each retailer but we suggest trying and seeing if you can get extra savings by adding a free shipping coupon. After you enter your sitewide coupon, check your savings amount first, make a note if you need. Then enter a free shipping code and check your total balance to see if the retailer accepted the second code.

Keep in mind some retailers simply replace the previous code you entered with the new one, if that is the case check to see which code gets you the highest discount and use that one!

What is an exclusive coupon?

We have account team members that work closely with retailers daily and their primary goal is to get exclusive coupon codes for our Promocodes.com users. An exclusive coupon is a coupon that is "exclusive" to Promocodes.com, meaning no other publisher should have the same coupon. You can find our exclusive coupons on our site marked with a yellow tag and use it knowing you got a special deal from your friends at Promocodes.com. We are continuously growing our account team and increase the amount of exclusive promo codes on the site to give you the best deals.

There are retailers which do not prefer making their promo codes public. They are worried that the discount code will spread all over the internet and they may not be able to control the high usage.

You need to click on our links to be redirected to a specific discount page on the retailer's site to access the savings. Do not feel discouraged when you don't see a discount code listed.
