What are promo codes and why do they work?
Fun fact – A neurophysics study by Claremont Graduate University’s Center for Neuroeconomics found that when shoppers receive a promo code, their oxytocin levels spike. Oxytocin is the hormone that’s responsible for making us feel happy. Did someone say saving money = happiness?
Many stores take advantage of this oxytocin boost to close sales by handing out promo codes, which are just a combination of numbers and letters that customers enter at checkout to save some money.
Every day, millions of online shoppers take to the internet to hunt down “promo codes”, “discount codes”, and “coupon codes” – three ways of describing the same thing. Shoppers love them because the codes save them money, and retailers love them because they increase their conversion rates on sales. It’s a classic win-win.
Studies suggest that approximately 83% of shoppers look for promo codes or offers before purchasing something online.
How do promo codes work?
Follow these steps to use a promo code:
- Copy (or write down) the promo code that you’d like to use.
- Enter the code in the promo code, discount code, or coupon code field on the retailer’s checkout page.
- Hit the apply button on the checkout page.
- Check your savings.

What are the best “hacks” for finding promo codes?
- If you’re logged in at checkout (and the store has your email address), you can try abandoning your cart to see if they send you an email with a promo code as an incentive to complete your purchase.
- If you’re a frequent shopper at a store, consider signing up for their email newsletter. Many stores send exclusive promo codes to subscribers on a regular basis.
- Add the free Dealhack browser extension to your Chrome, Safari, Edge, Opera, or Brave browser. Once installed, you never need to search for promo codes again. When you hit any checkout page we have codes for, our extension will show you all the available codes we’ve found for that store.
- Use Dealhack’s website to search for the retailer or brand you’d like to save at. We have codes for thousands of retail partners.
- Sometimes, it can pay to guess! Many retailers use recurring formats for their codes. It never hurts to get creative and try code combinations like FREESHIP, HOLIDAY, SAVE10, WELCOME, 10OFF, or SAVE20. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular promo code formats used by retailers.
