How long ago was that and what codes did you use? I can’t get anything to apply now.

I’d take for $2.40 but all coupon used. Sad

I just used this, worked great! Saved $30 off a $61 order. I did confirm that the products must be sold and shipped by Amazon. I believe this expires in December.

What other coupons did you use?
I see one for 25% and another from Vipon but that’s still around $5.

About 23 years back American Express was offering unlimited free stock trades if you deposited $50,000 with them. I was going to do it but had a few questions first. I gave them a fake name and (mistake) our real office phone number and asked them for more information. I got my info but decided that as my costs were only $5 a trade, I’d pass. I’d almost forgotten about it when we were soon enough inundated with junk phone calls from multiple companies with all kinds of ‘AMAZING OFFERS” asking for the fake name person. Amex had clearly harvested the list of names and sold it. The people who bought the names sold the list of names to others once they’d worked it and they sold it to others etc etc. I’d only used that fake name one time, with AmEx.

For 23 years as of last week we are still receiving calls for fake name person. We put our company name on the do not call list, and started telling everyone who called that (persons fake name here) had died and please remove this phone number from their call list. Often on slow days (persons fake name here) death was described in accurate, excruciating, bloody and horrific details. Each time different. (persons fake name here) ) was in turn shocked working on an electrical panel trying to teach his kids about electricity, run over by a dump truck full of crushed rock while helping an elderly woman across the street, which went even worse when the driver backed up to see what had occurred, (persons fake name here) ) drowned saving the neighbors dog in the river but they didn’t find (persons fake name here) bloated hairless unrecognizable body for 2 months etc etc. To this day, our office gets calls asking if (insert dead persons fake name here) is available. “No”, we patiently tell them: “(persons fake name here) is dead and this is how he died…..”

I WILL NEVER DO ANY BUSINESS WITH AMERICAN EXPRESS. EVER EVER EVER. But that’s me.

It’s a good story but lets be honest, everyone is doing this you just aren’t making fake names for the other companies to differentiate them.

Just so I don’t sound like i’m only poopoo’ing on your story ill share something related I do which others might find useful.

If you use gmail you can register with some sites as Couchmaster+AMEX@gmail.com (assuming you are couchmaster@gmail.com it will still send the email to you). That way if you start getting spam to couchmaster+amex you can then add a rule and block it or only allow from certain emails.

If they dont allow “+” sign in the email address you can also do stuff like this: couch.master@gmail.com is the same as couchmaster@gmail.com so you could also use this trick to get multiple coupons from places or sign up as an alternate email that you can do interesting things with and not have to maintain multiple inboxes.

I clicked the 25% first then added the light to the cart then I entered the Vipon code.

Ah I see. It looks like it drops more than it says.
Ordered one. Hopefully, it’s better than the Ultrafire Q5.
thanks

I got some of the Tool AA 2.0 for $9.49 with the Vipon code.

Where was the stacking code for another $3.80 off?

I ordered 5 lights. So that would have saved me almost another $20.

At Amazon there was a “save an extra 20% at checkout when you check this box” kinda thing. But it only applied to the first flashlight. I bought 3 of the Tool AA’s and that’s how it worked out: Vipon discount on all of them, and what equated to be there extra discount just on the first one.

The description said nothing about the strobe being hidden, or mode memory - so it seems that the Strobe mode can not be avoided when using this flashlight.

But thanks for posting.

Wait a sec…

It “eats AA or 14500” cells, yet includes an AAA cell?

Just used the 20% off coupon to grab a few Thorfire lights for ~$14 and change. For the record this was 2 different lights, I couldn’t order 2 of the same and get the coupon to apply to both.

They managed to screw up the site again so you cant even find lightning deals, seems like it happens a few times a year
