Yes, and it will be applied to the highest-priced item in your cart that does not already have a promo code on it. In the event of a tie, I believe it just goes for the first item on the page.

If all items have codes and you enter a better one, only then will it kick out an already-entered code. Removing a promoed book will also remove its coupon; the code will not be reassigned. Finally, each code can only be used once per cart, even if it's a multiuse code.

I think that covers everything...

Ecellent answer Rev Bob ..... I reckon it's just easier not to use the basket method and use the straight forward single checkout method.

Depends on circumstances. If you've got your own batch of codes and you're not in a race, just enter 'em from highest discount to lowest and you'll be fine. It won't work with multitab, though; once you add something to the cart, multitab is just no longer an option. Fundamentally incompatible.

Sometimes I think Kobo must also be factoring in the phase of the moon or something totally random like that.

This time when I got it to work, I was at home in the US and I haven't seen the old checkout in the US in a while. Unfortunately a lot of the books on my wish list aren't couponable in the US, but there were a number which were.

The multi-tab process seems to be Chrome-friendly from what I can glean based on others' posts in this thread. I personally have never been able to get it to work in either Firefox or IE.

And it didn't work for me with a gift card, just with a credit card.

Totally bizarre...

Hope this helps, if you are willing to travel...

Thanks for giving me all these info. I will wait for the next moon phase (or high discount coupon!) to come around and test it out on the Chrome.

About once a month, usually in the last half of the month, Kobo runs a ten-day long contest. The exact URL changes, but http://contest.kobo.com/ should usually get you there.

The current contest is over. Kobo runs them quite often and we'll probably see another one soon. When they have one you can usually find it at http://contest.kobo.com

Just keep following this thread. You'll know about it because the coupons fly fast and furious. And the contests are actually kind of fun. At least I thought so!

Don't worry if you don't know the answer to the trivia questions, they are multiple choice and you answer until you get it right. Code values are completely random and not dependent on knowledge.

Do you have to get them right to be entered for the grand prize? Because I missed one...

Yes, but ... if you get it wrong, just click on the other answers, one at a time. Eventually you'll get the correct one (and the daily prize)...
