(Frequently Asked Questions)
How do I use a coupon?
In any instance, you will receive your coupon code via email. Once you have received a coupon code, it will need to be applied to your purchase in your shopping cart, before checking out. To do this, view your cart by finding the cart icon on your screen, then selecting the “view cart” option, after which your cart window will open. You will find the “Use Coupon Code” option below the list of items currently in your cart, where you will then be able to enter the code provided. Please see our Terms & Conditions page for more information.
Why is my coupon code not being accepted?
You need to ensure that your order meets the requirements for the coupon code to be used. For instance, the Newsletter Sign-Up Coupon is not usable on SALE or any promotional items, and requires a minimum amount spent (please see our terms & conditions page for more information on this) in order to be redeemed. If you have checked the terms & conditions of your coupon and meet the requirements, but your code is still not being accepted, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you.
