How to use voucher codes
Using voucher codes is easy and we are going to explain how they work so you can use them to save money when you shop online.
What are voucher codes?
Voucher codes are special codes issued by online shops who want you to go there any buy things. It’s no different to other non computer based discount codes or vouchers, except that they work as codes that are typed in to the shopping cart in order to activate them to give shoppers the saving. They always have a set start and end date, and there will be other terms and conditions that apply to the code.
What happens if I’m not allowed to use a code
If you are not allowed to use a voucher code, for example, because it’s for new customers and you’re not a new customer, or because it is for students and you’re not a student then there are a few possibilities. Firstly, the code may simply not work and a well set-up website will probably tell you why not (for example because it has expired, or you don’t meet the requirements). Secondly, it might work but the merchant might not honour it when processing your order. Thirdly, you might get lucky and the code might work anyway (but we do not encourage users to use codes that are not applicable to them).
How do I turn the code into a real discount?
When you get to the online shopping cart (all online shops have an online shopping cart of some sort so they can process your order) look for a little box that is called something like “Voucher Codes” “discount codes” “Do you have a code” etc. Enter your code and then there is usually an “apply code” button. When you click that, the website will check to see if you are eligible for the code and if you are, you should see the discount appear before you complete your order.
What if the code doesn’t work?
If you don’t see the code working, it’s usually safest to assume that it is no longer valid or has been withdrawn (which sometimes happens if a shop has reached their quota of sales or discounts). If you complete your order, there is no guarantee that the retailer will honour the code if you contact them after the purchase has been completed.
