Why isn’t it taking my promo code?

  • There may be a few reasons why the site isn’t accepting your promo code. First, check the expiration date of the promotion. Second, check that you have met the minimum requirement to activate the promotion. Lastly, check to make sure that the promotion is not an “in-store” promotion only. If those three qualifications are satisfied, then you may be visiting our site from one of our affiliate sites (in which we don’t allow promotions from), where you will need to clear your browser history to continue with the promotion code towards your purchase. If none of these solutions worked for you, please give us a call toll free at 855.COOKIES (266-5437) so that we can further assist you.
