Frequently Asked (Coupon) Questions
What types of bargains are offered here?
There are basically two types of bargains: coupons and sales. Coupons are codes that are entered to get a special discount. Sales are special prices on specific item or group of items and may not require any codes at all.
Can bargains be combined?
That depends. Usually, a single coupon can be combined with a sale price. Most stores don't allow use of more than one coupon per order. See the store detail page for more information on a particular store's policies.
What other restrictions are there on coupons?
That varies from store to store. Some coupons are only for new customers. Some coupons only apply to specific product categories. Most coupons can only be used once per customer. Unless stated otherwise, most coupons listed here are for either new or returning customers, can be used only once per customer, can be applied to any product, and cannot be combined with other coupons. If you find exceptions that aren't clearly marked, please let us know.
Where do I enter a coupon code?
Some coupons are automatically applied when you click through the link. Others must be entered in the shopping cart or during checkout. The field where you enter the code varies from store to store. Some call it a "Coupon Code", a "Promotion Code", or other similar names. See the store detail page for more information on where to enter coupon codes for a specific store.
What should I do if the coupon does not work?
There may be a number of reasons why a coupon does not work. Because merchants can, and do, change their coupons and promotions frequently, make sure you see the discount in your shopping basket before you make your order final. If the shopping basket does not show a discount, it can mean that either:
- The coupon code has not been properly entered. Enter the code once more.
- The restrictions for the coupon code have not been met. Check the fine print to make sure your purchase meets the requirements (if any) to use the coupon code.
- The coupon has been withdrawn by the merchant or is no longer valid. Some merchants do not indicate how long their coupon codes are valid for, so if the code does not work, it is safe to assume that the coupon code is no longer valid.
- The merchant website is not functionality properly.
- If you try all of the above, and the coupon still does not work, please give us feedback in response to our question, "Did this coupon work" by clicking "No" on the window displaying the details of the coupon. This enables us to make sure that the coupons posted on our website are valid, and provides a better user experience for everybody.
Where do these coupons and bargains come from?
Some come directly from the stores. Some come from visitors to FindSavings.com. Some come from newsletters, message boards, and other web sites. All are believed to be accurate and legitimate for you to use. We are not however, held responsible for Coupons and Sales that are not valid or do not work as stated. There are so many we can not keep up with all of them and know when they are not working at all times. We can make mistakes too!
Why do some bargains expire early?
Unlike printed coupons, most online stores reserve the right to change offers at any time. Many bargains are based on both a time frame and a certain promotion budget. If the bargain is more popular than expected, the marketing budget for the bargain runs out earlier than anticipated and the coupon gets pulled early.
What should I do if I have a customer service issue?
Call the store directly and try to get the problem resolved. We list toll free customer support numbers for most of the stores, and their customer service departments are usually wonderful at handling problems. If you can't get a problem resolved directly, please let others know by posting your review for that store, located on the store detail pages.
What can I do to make sure I won't have any problems?
First, make sure that your coupons, discounts, and sale prices are reflected before you finalize your order. Second, save copies of your confirmation page, confirmation e-mail, shipping notice, and any other correspondence. Third, make sure to check your products after you receive them. If any returns are necessary, make sure to follow the store's RMA guidelines and ship it back with an insured, trackable carrier.
