    Wink Nomination for Worst "Coupon" Ever
    Back in the Saddle's home page says "Save $20 on today's order, view details at checkout. Not valid in MN". I placed a dummy order to see how to save the $20 but couldn't find out how to save $20 without submitting cc.

    I'm guessing that you have to maybe sign up for a credit card or something?

    The worst one I had was from a company that shall remain nameless. (This is more due to the fact that I can't remember their name and they're not around any more.)

    Their commission tracking was through the exclusive $10 off $30 coupon they gave me. I would get a commission on every order that used that coupon.

    The only problem was that they promoted a $15 off $25 coupon on every page of their site.
