Coupon codes are provided by businesses to encourage sales by offering selected deals when a specific "code" is used at check out.

There are coupon codes for discounts on just about anything for promotions on travel, hotels, airlines, cruises, entertainment, toys and dining.

Instead of handing a coupon to the cashier, the coupon code is used like a security code- a way to acknowledge the special discount offer. Using a coupon code online can save even more than shopping at a regular store, or making a reservation at a hotel or airline without the code.

Not everyone has access to coupon codes. Usually, they are offered to groups or affiliates, like Entertainment Magazine to enhance their online and instore sales to select audiences. Coupon codes also are called promo codes, promotion codes and coupons.

How to use coupon codes

Using a discount coupon code online is the virtual equivalent of cutting out a coupon from a newspaper. No need for sissors, though. No need for a newspaper.

When a coupon code is required to get a special discount, the sale price is accompanied with a special code (like DISCOUNT50). The code may not be shown on the company web site. Instead, the coupon code must be obtained from another source, like Entertainment Magazine, an authorized affiliate.

Write down the code before you click the link. That code is required to be typed in at some point during your check out process in order to get the special discount price.
