What's that Code stuff on the Shopping Cart page?
There is an area at the bottom of your shopping cart that prompts for Code. This field allows you to redeem gift certificates, coupons, club discounts, or other promotional codes. If you don't happen to have a gift certificate, etc., don't worry about this field.

How do I use this feature?
Assuming you have a gift certificate, promotional, or coupon code, simply type in the code number at the Code prompt, and press the Apply Code button. You will see the affects of the codes immediately on items in your cart to which the code applies. You will see the normal price for the item(s) in question with a strikeout line through them, and then the discounted price below the normal price colored red. SPECIAL NOTE: You cannot use these codes to PURCHASE a $5 Micropay ... you can only receive discounts through these codes on any actual eBooks you buy. Also, coupons in most cases cannot be used to purchase magazine subscriptions.

Can I use a coupon more than once?
No, coupons are one-shot, just as they are in traditional retail stores. Some coupons apply only to a single title, but some others are percentage discounts on multiple titles (or even all titles on the web site). For this type of coupon, you should place everything you want in your cart before using the coupon code because it will only apply to things already in your cart.

Where do I find these promotional codes?
Sometimes we send promotions to our best customers to show our appreciation. Sometimes we will put a coupon code in an advertisement to try to get people to join up. Sometimes we may give a coupon to a book club or other organization, or one of our affiliates to help them launch their association with Fictionwise. It's the same as any other kind of retail business, a virtual version of a paper coupon.

We will also soon launch a gift certificate program in which you can create your own coupons (by paying for them) and send them to friends or relatives as gifts. When redeemed, gift certificates will show up as a credit to the redeemer's micropay account.
