Coupon codes make it possible for designers to offer special perks and discounts to their customers, but these discounts come with a few challenges.
Knowing how to use a coupon code correctly saves time and money for everyone involved. Here are the steps for using a code here on oliveknits.com and on Ravelry (the two places most of my patterns are sold).
Using coupon codes on Ravelry are fairly easy, too, but there are still things to watch for.
If you select the “buy it now” option, the location of the code is slightly different (see below).
Discounts and coupon codes are a bonus. Please do not complete the checkout process if the coupon code is not reflected in the price BEFORE you complete your purchase. Many codes are limited to one use per customer, so if you’ve used it once already you may not be able to use it again. If a coupon is expired, you will see a message letting you know that’s the case.
If your coupon code is active (not expired) and you’ve double-checked that you’ve typed it correctly and it still isn’t working for you, then please send an email to my help desk for assistance BEFORE completing your purchase.
To thank you for reading all the way through this message to learn best practices for using coupon codes, here’s a coupon code for 50% off my Beekeeper Cowl on Ravelry with code: coupontest (This code expires 12/31/21)
