Q:

How do you use the groupon on the website? Is there a coupon code? Can I use this along with another coupon code for free shipping?

Jill P.  asked on  Nov 21, 2012

A:

Hi Jill, Once you’ve chosen the Groupon offer you prefer (either $19 for $40 or $49 for $100) and purchased it, you will receive a unique code from Groupon. You can then visit to choose a book or gift you’d like to personalize. Click the “Personalize It” button to add the child’s name, upload a photograph, write a special message, and more. Then, preview your personalization before you add your order to the shopping cart. If you haven’t spent the full $40 or $100, you may continue shopping as the entire voucher value should be used in one visit. You cannot combine the Groupon voucher with another offer (for free shipping) and the Groupon voucher doesn’t apply to shipping costs. When you've finished shopping, type your unique Groupon code into the "Discount Codes" field in the lower left corner and click "Apply Coupon." Happy Holidays!

Q:

If i buy this Groupon for $40 worth of product, can i buy something that is 39.95 and use it...or do i have to buy something else in addition to bring my total over $40?
