4. What are promotional codes?

A promotional code is a unique code that you use when shopping online to give yourself a better deal such as money off, or free delivery or a free gift.
You enter the code when prompted at checkout, and the retailer's site will automatically apply the offer. For instance, if the offer is £10 off an order value of £50 or more, you will see the cost of your purchase decrease by £10 if the starting cost is above £50. Simple!
