    Why would anyone use the free shipping coupon when there is a 15% off coupon?
    Shipping is $4.95. They would save $7.5 by using the 15% off coupon if they spent $50

    Could be a few reasons. First off, they may not realize it's a better deal. Secondly, they may use the free shipping coupon if they think they may have to return the item. If they return the item, they won't lose out on any lost shipping charges. If they used the 10% off coupon, they'd get everything refunded *but* their $4.95 shipping. This is assuming that BN doesn't refund shipping charges.

    Trust me. I know these things from experience.

    Just to add to that...

    Different shoppers may gravitate toward particular types of offers. We don't want to leave anyone out based on their shopping preferences. Also, some coupon sites have separate sections for coupons that are a percent off of the order versus free shipping. We wanted to supply an offer for both sections.

    Why not a hybrid offer then? Like 10% off PLUS free shipping. The less a customer has to think about before they enter the shopping cart, the less resistance there is along the way.

    Well if we try that line on a landlord or utility company we'll soon find out 'what it frikkin matters'.

    If your potential customer does not find what matters to them on your site, I want have the angle for them when they get to mine. That is what frikkin matters to me.

    The hybrid offer is an interesting idea. I'll need to look into the technical requirements behind implementing such a thing...

    I actually am quite greedy. I would the free shipping code although it is not as good as the percent off. Free shipping is often enough incentive to cinch the sale... As I don't get a commission on the shipping, I figure that means a greater percentage of the underwear sale for me.

    sound thinking

    FYI
    I have extended these coupon codes until 11/26/03 (they were originally supposed to expire 11/14/03). All our up-to-date coupon and promotion information is always posted on our Create Links Page in LinkShare.

    And about that hybrid offer idea? Watch for news on that just before Thanksgiving...
