Coupon wackyness

posted by The Big z on - last edited - Viewed by 81 users

It is a bummer that this is happening right when everyone is gone for the holidays...that's how it goes I guess.

My old treasure hunt coupons are now showing up as 1 dollar off coupons..this is pretty lame as I was waiting until today to make my electronic gift purchases. Those coupons are suppose to apply until December 31st, no one said anything about the coupons dynamically changing.

There seems to be even a bigger issue, at least with the Sam and Max season 1 and 2 DVD sets... No matter what code I enter, the 50% (or 1 dollar off) codes, 10% discounts or -10 dollar off full season codes they won't apply, it appears only the free shipping is applying and no other coupons. I don't get any errors or anything when I enter them, they just don't apply at all.

Anyway just a FYI in case anyone else is experiencing these weird issues, you're not alone! (or I am...hah)

  • I've got the same thing with the treasure hunt coupons. I only went hunting today though as I didn't get the extra maps until now as I have avoided the forums because of potential spoilers. Still got chapter 4 and 5 to play but knew the treasure hunt promo was finishing soon so thought I'd stop by!

  • Are you trying to use multiple coupons? They don't quite stack right, after all. For example, if you use a $5 off coupon, that $5 is distributed across all the priced items in you cart. As a result, if you use a 50% off a season coupon in addition to the $5 off coupon for an order of, say, SBCG4AP and the StrongBad T-shirt, you get the larger 50% discount on the games but the $5 off does NOT go completely to the T-shirt; you're left with effectively a $1.94 coupon.

  • I have the same problem. I want to use my 50% off a season coupon, but it changed to $1 off the order. I see this at http://www.telltalegames.com/monkeyisland/prizes/F. The coupon wasn't supposed to expire until December 31. Can someone fix this please?

    No, I've used coupons like the 50% one off before. It applied to every single season all at once, which was nice. This particular coupon doesn't seem to be stacking at all with the free shipping promo, I get the same discount even if I try to apply a coupon with a higher discount. So instead of 15 bucks off I get 2.50 off.. it is just...weird.
