As the number of people shopping online for their cigarettes grows every day due to the huge savings to be had on the price when shopping for cigarettes and tobacco products online rather than at your local shop, yet another method to save even more emerges in the form of coupons and other promotions offered by online cigarette stores. Used a marketing tool, primarily to attract more customers to each store, discount coupons mean significant extra savings for each smoker. And at such difficult times when every cent counts for the pockets of each one of us, it would be a crime not to take advantage of the numerous promotional offers featured by most online cigarette stores. Discount coupons, special offers, real bargains they are all there and we are here to guide you through them and help you make the most of them and secure that your next carton of your favourite brand, Marlboro, Camel, Winston, Dunhill, Rothmans, or whatever else it might be, will be yours for the least price possible.
Types of online cigarette shopping promotions
While browsing the myriads of online cigarettes stores to find the next bargain you are bound to come across two different types of online shopping promotions. The first is called a “link only” promotion, while the second is the “coupon code” or else “promotional code”. When running online shopping promotions most internet based vendors tend to use of these two methods. So be in the look out for both of them.
How do I redeem a “linked” coupon or product promotion?
Contrary to the other coupon promotions, this “linked” type of promotion does not actually require a coupon code per se, for the promotion to be activated, since the activation occurs through pressing on a special link. Usually, if you enter the online store through such a special link and you place an order, the associated discount is automatically deducted from your bill at the checkout.
How do I redeem a “coupon code” coupon?
Not all online stores are designed in the same way, so the place to enter the coupon code in order to redeem it differs from store to store. In some of the online stores, the coupon code should be entered while the customer is still in the shopping cart. In other stores the code should be entered in the order review page just before pressing the checkout button. Be careful to locate exactly where the code should be entered and each time you enter a new store for the first time search for the code submit area. Also remember that the “coupon code” might also be referred to as a promotion code, a discount code, a promotional code, a source code, or a promo code. Other times, the coupon is entered on the order review page prior to checkout. Look around carefully for the coupon “submit” area the first time you purchase from any website.
What if I don’t see any place to put the code?
A good solution is to resort to the website’s FAQ section, which might be the place having the answer to the question “where should I enter the promo code?”. In some stores such information might also appear on the “Customer Service” page as well. If none of these two pages contains the information and you still can’t find the code submit area, then contact the store via email, call or live chat (whatever is available) and ask them directly to guide you accordingly.
How do I know if a “coupon code” is working?
Before proceeding to confirm your order make sure that after you submit the code the relevant discount is indeed deducted from the amount you are called to pay. This should be clearly displayed in the order review page, together with the shipping cost and all other charges, if any. If, for any reason, you have submitted a discount code but the discount is not visible on your order then it is better not to proceed with the order at all and contact the vendor to clarify matters or try another store to shop from.
