How Online Coupons Work
- There are 3 different types of online coupons on Rather-Be-Shopping.com. The first type is a coupon code promotion where you actually have to enter the code when "checking out" from the retailer's website in order to get your discount. The second type we call an embedded coupon, which requires no coupon code. You just click on the corresponding link and the coupon discount will automatically be applied to your purchase at checkout. The last kind we call a deal/coupon link which also has no coupon code attached to it and is often a site-wide promotion that the retailer is currently offering. To help even further, we made a video tutorial on the 3 different types of online coupons.
- Find the coupon you want to use on Rather-Be-Shopping.com and click on the corresponding link or coupon code. By clicking on the small banner that reads 'Click to peel and copy code' it will not only open a new browser window and load the retailer's website, but will automatically copy the coupon code so all you have to do is type Control+V to enter the code into the coupon code box at checkout.
- Once you finish your shopping, you will then want to enter your coupon code (if there is one) during the checkout process on the retailer's website. If necessary, click back over to Rather-Be-Shopping.com to retrieve the coupon code. (You will see that our site is still active)
- The location where you enter your coupon varies by the retailer. You will be prompted to enter your coupon code anywhere from the 'shopping cart' page to the 'billing' page.
- Look for a box saying coupon code, promotional code, promotional discount, discount code, or any variation of these and enter your coupon code in the corresponding box.
- IMPORTANT - Whichever type of coupon you end up using, always make sure your discount/coupon is reflected in your order total before you confirm your purchase.
