Coupons and Giveaways and Codes, Oh My!

When there's a sale or a giveaway at beadshop.com, you'll want to get that order placed quickly! But wait...Where does that coupon code go? And how to you get the giveaway??

Here are some helpful tips and tricks to get you through the checkout process easily, no matter what kind of device you are using.

For a Laptop or Desktop Computer:

When you have finished shopping, head to your cart. You can do this either by clicking “go to cart” on the bottom of any product page or by clicking the small cart icon found on the top right corner of the page.

Once there, you’ll see a list of all the items you are about to purchase. This is a great time to review your items. Have you forgotten anything? Need to switch out a color? You can delete items or change quantities here as well.

Below the list is a little box that says “Anything you’d like us to know?” This is where you’d write in any notes for us. We refer to these as “Order Notes.” If you have a giveaway phrase or need to let the Shipping Team know about anything, this is the spot to type it!




Once you’ve added your Order Notes (if needed) click “check out.” If you would like to use PayPal or Amazon Pay, don’t worry. You can select those payment options later. Clicking “check out” at this point instead of the alternate payment buttons ensures that you can use your coupon codes on the next page.

So! You’ve clicked “check out” and have been brought to a new page. This page is where you fill out your information. On the right, you’ll see a box labeled “Gift card or discount code,” which is where you’ll enter one if you have one! Be sure it’s spelled correctly!! Click the grey “Apply” button next to the box, and watch your total price DROP!


Once that is done and your information is filled out, click to continue through the checkout process. On the subsequent pages, enter all your info and select how you’d like to pay.







For a Smartphone or Tablet:

On a mobile device, you can still click “go to cart” on the bottom of any product page, but there's no other cart symbol like on a desktop. Instead, the small word “Cart (X)” with the X being the number of items in your cart can be found on the top left of any page, just above the search bar. Now that you're in your cart, again, below the list of your products is the Order Notes box that says “Anything you’d like us to know?” Type any giveaway codes here!






Just like with the computer version, you'll click “check out," but you'll notice there doesn't seem to be a coupon code box on this next page! Don't worry...It's just hiding. On the top, you’ll see a blue cart and the words “Show order summary,” which you will need to click, and then poof! The discount box appears. It is labeled “Gift card or discount code,” which is where you’ll enter one if you have one! Be sure it’s spelled correctly!! Click the grey arrow button next to the box to apply.


Once that is done and your information is filled out, click to continue through the checkout process. On the subsequent pages, enter all your info, and select how you’d like to pay. Once you’ve paid, you’re all set! Sit back and wait for your goodies to arrive!
