HSN Will Not Honor Expiration Dates For Coupons!
Visa Checkout Coupon does not expire until 9/19/16 at 11:59. I tried to use it, got an invalid pop up and called HSN. They said the promotional redemption limit has been reached! So apparently, HSN puts a limit on the number of coupons that can be redeemed, and if this magic number is reached, the promotion ends sooner than the expiration date.
So the way I understand it, even if a coupon is meant for everyone, it really isn’t for EVERYONE, because they don’t have enough to go around for all of us. This is perhaps why we get invalid coupon pop ups for no reason when we try to use a coupon at checkout.
Just really, really incredibly aggravated at HSN now. And please, HSN Managers? Save it. I don’t want to hear your inane apologies.
THANK YOU, OP and others, for reminding me to deal with this issue. I had this problem, too! I signed up for Visa Checkout just to take advantage of the promotion, and it didn’t work for me, either.
I read the small print about the limitation, and I agree that it’s not a fair stipulation, especially for those people who tried it right away. What is the limit: 5 people? 2? 20,000?
Forget that; it’s shady behavior, and I will now be promptly canceling my Visa Checkout account. I haven’t had any “deal-breaking” issues with PayPal anyhow, and I’ll be darned if Visa Checkout gets to use me to boost its member numbers (which it then uses to promote itself) without giving me something for the privilege. Ain’t happening.
I tried it too and it did not work. I think I tried it right away though and it did not work. I did not call in because I was extremely busy so just ha e up and deleted my cart.
Just one more thing to really tick people off! Why bother offering to a few and turning around and making many more angry!
By the time you read all the “restrictions”, they probably reached their limit! Another bunch of hooey to HSN and Visa too!

In this case Visa Checkout is the one that set limits . It is not HSN
The same thing happened to me with the Visa Checkout Coupon. I called back and spoke to a different HSN customer service rep. She was more sympathetic and worked with me to make it right. My experience is that most HSN customer service reps will bend over backwards to make you happy. Stay calm & keep trying.
I think its that way with any special offer that partners with Visa Checkout to give you a deal..Apparently they set a number and once that number is reached it ends..I reload my Starbucks card every time they offer the $10 extra promo and there is always a limited number for that so I always buy as soon as I receive the offer otherwise I miss it because the offer sells out quick.
