I have never got a voucher code to work. I just purchased a Lisa Gardner book and there was no place to even try. Only the gift voucher box and store credit box. When I have been able to try in the past I get a message about the book not being available for discounts. I usually buy fiction, they are not always new or best sellers.
If the 'promo code' box doesn't come up, then it's an agency-priced book. GOAT better explains it on the first page of this thread but I copied it here:

NOTE 2: You do have to make sure that you are buying a non-agency book. E-books that are non-agency generally include:
- e-books with two prices listed (ie. "List Price" and "Our Price")
- e-books that end in something other than ".99" (ie. $9.91, $5.57, etc.)
- most graphic novels
- most "Just for Kobo Vox" books
- most very inexpensive e-books (ie. $0.95 to $2.99)
- e-books by very small/niche publishers.
A list of non-agency publishers is provided in this post

The promo code box should fall under the redeem any gift cards heading, provided that the book is eligible. I did a brief tutorial for using Kobo coupon codes, since most people in South Africa didn't even know it was an option!

With Macmillan settling with the US DOJ, voucher codes should start working with more ebooks in a few days.

Ahh thank you both. The 'whys' are much clearer now :-)
It seems I do manage to always buy the wrong books! I failed with 2 more this evening!

Just because the other publishers settled, it didn't make codes start working with their books, so I doubt they'll start working with Macmillan titles either.

Unfortunately this is true. Books on Board seems to be only place discounting Previously Agency books past a few cents.

Yes, and even there it's a separate deal. Their codes and reward dollars don't work with former Agency stuff.

That's what I'm thinking. It seems none of the settling publishers have become promo code eligible at Kobo or BoB.

True but the 30% off this week on Hachette and S&S books has been nice. I picked up a few titles that would of been alot more with it. I can only hope Kobo starts discounting but seeing they are in Canada and the Lawsuit in here in the U.S. I don't see it happening.

I have had no problems using discount codes for Macmillan books in New Zealand. Is is only in the US that they don't work?

OK that is interesting. I tried to buy "Gardens of the Moon" by Steven Erikson, published by Tom Doherty Associates. With a NZ address the price is $NZ 7.99 (about $US 6.75) and I get a box to enter a promo code. With a US address the price is $US 7.99 and there is nowhere to enter a promo code.

I keep waiting for the prices to go down for the settling publishers' books on Sony, B&N, Kobo, or BooksOnBoard, but it still hasn't happened. I have a few books I'd like to buy, but I guess I'm boycotting them until I see some price changes/coupons/etc.
