    Hi all!

    Today I got the black friday newsletter from shapeways which includes an offer for free shipping today! :)
    Can anyone tell me how to use the code? The mail only says "enter at checkout" but if I do so nothing changes and it keeps displaying the shipping costs...

    I have the same problem. The code does not work when entered into the promo code box at checkout. Very disappointing. :(

    The email has two codes, so can we get free shipping and 20% off ?

    Keep in mind the 20% off has a minimum order value of 75$. Apart from that I can't see why it should not work to use both together. But at first it has to work at all. ;)

    Good to hear that I'm not the only one...

    I've tried it in uppercase, lower case, reverse. Nothing works. I guess the offer is either not yet activated, or it is somehow not valid.

    There's a new mail from shapeways, saying the problem has been fixed. It is working fine now (only 20% off OR free shipping).

    Thanks to the shapeway-team!

    Yes it is working now, I placed my order with free shipping. Great to see the shapeways team fixing the problem so quickly.

    Ah I don't seem to have received a mail about these - where do I find these codes and when does the offer start and finish ?

    I was just about to put an order in - a bit of discount would be nice !

    Check the blog - it is "tdzmu" for "20% off an order over $75" and
    "v9v7r" for "free shipping" , each valid once and not both on
    the same order. Offer ends midnight EST.

    So you type the five letters (after discovering that the flat text is a "button"), click the Apply Discount button (flatish but at least it got a frame)... and nothing happens. What other conditions are required for this? Only for USA people? Only if paying in dollars? What?

    Edit: wild guess: taxes and shipping not included in the limit. If using the free shipping code, it works, and the shipping ends being just 0.01. Yes, there is a rounding issue somewhere, shipping cost is one number, the coupon reports a similar number in negative, but not exact.

    Wait, once you reach 75 dollars, then the discount applies... and to taxes too? So that makes it work after 90.75 dollars or 75, it depends. Errmm... Shapeways should stop prettending it accepts euros at the same level than dollars, it's confusing. You could just say it isn't working and never will fully do without some radical changes. And there are are silly cases like asking for euros when the address is in Norway (not using euros, not in EU, just some special deals here and there). Well, not asking, but forcing.

    OK, rant over... it would just great to be able to control things and avoid currency exchange rates. It's not asking for double Irish Dutch sandwich, just a clean glass without soap aftertaste.

    Is the code only good once b/c it won't work now. This same issue happened with the last free shipping code. I emailed them about it an have not heard back yet. I have a ton of orders to do but now can't take advantage of the sale. :( Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem....
