Coupons, discounts, and new publisher agreements

You know how you get some great coupon code from Kobo or Sony, and it sounds exciting, and then you find that there are very few books it works on? Yeah, I hate that too. But with the anti-trust settlement and the new publisher agreements, are there any big six publishers who previously wouldn't allow coupons, and now they do? Or has only Amazon entered into new agreements so far? Do we anticipate that more publishers will allow coupons in the near future? Is this, or is this not, part of the ant-trust settlements?

Thanks for any insight,
eP

Just some observations from what I've seen...

The settlement allows discounting and Books On Board has been discounting former Agency titles 30% off their new prices off and on for months, but they don't allow coupons or "reward dollars". None of the former Agency titles can be coupon-ed at Kobo or Sony. OmniLit/AllRomance allow "rewards" on some former Agency stuff (HarperCollins at least), but doesn't discount from list price. Amazon is discounting a lot (all?) former Agency stuff and I don't recall them ever doing any coupons other than a few 'special offers'.

I remember reading somewhere that new contracts have to be inked between publishers and each individual store, so my guess is that, if there are to be discounts and coupons, their use has to be agreed upon in a new contract.
