Problem using craft coupon
I figured you guys had all gone too long without a crazy question from me, so thought I would put in an appearance! 🙂 I have been trying to use the new $10 off $50 craft coupon and cannot get it to work for me (159572). Not sure if this is user error on my part, or…??? Items in my cart are 111-6157, 446-670, and 432-444 for a pre-shipping total of $64.85. Are these not craft items? So confused…
*Head Smack: Ignore me. Just re-read the rules *again* and see that it does not start until the 12th. Darn it. Wish that was more clearly stated/shown on the splash page. 🙁 (hsn.com/Article/10_Off/6212)
It’s past the 12th and it still doesn’t work. I have only shopped from crafts and I have $53 in my bag, so I qualified, but it won’t work. Anyone else having this problem?
Retailers publishing coupons in advance is not unusual. In fact, many people appreciate it as it gies them time to plan their shopping.
For instance, I receive Costco coupons in the mail at least a week before they go into effect. Many supermarkets here publish their ads on Sunday but the sales do not begin until Wednesday.
As long as the coupons and ads are clearly marked with the effective dates, I fail to see how this is a problem.
While I understand people want to combine deals such as sales and coupons, the fact is that retailers such as HSN are in business. T/hey exist to sell us things — not give us breaks and not be our friends.
I have the same question. Why would you post a coupon that couldn’t be used until October 12? Anna Griffin shoppers spend a lot of money on her products and could use a break.
Hi, Seanchai, I haven’t seen you around for a long time. I was looking at the coupons today and then I saw your post. When I clicked on the Details for that Craft coupon, I saw that it said Valid from Oct. 12-Oct.31. I thought that the Oct.12 was a glitch because I wouldn’t have thought that they would have posted that coupon until it was ‘good’. But maybe it really does mean Oct.12 since it didn’t work for you.
Hopefully, a moderator will see your post and give you a more definitive answer, but I just thought I’d pass along what I had noticed. I didn’t look at your items, but hopefully they will still have them and at the price you see now (or even less) when the date for the coupon arrives. And, of course, if you can wait until then. Good luck.
Edit: Whoops, head smack time for me!! :womanlol: I just noticed your last paragraph!! Well, hi and good luck anyway!!
