Have received two Levenger catalogs during the last few weeks. One offered 20% discount with free shipping and the one that came in today offered 25% off with free shipping (all the time) on orders over $100.00.

 

I read the small print - disclaimer about applying the discount and, if I read it correctly, I can't use the $40.00 gift card I have.

You have to choose either the special discount pricing or using the gift card. personally that sounds a little bit "bait & switchish".

 

NOTE: I'm not questioning the legality of it (they can do almost anything they want really) it's just that it limits my options on what and when to buy. I was going to buy one of their pens or maybe some ink and between the discount and my gift card I would be a very happy customer. Instead, I guess I'll just wait until I find something else that is screaming, "BUY ME"!

 

Any thoughts about this??

My reading of the fine print is that the discount does not apply to purchasing gift cards.  So you cannot purchase a $40 gift card and pay $30.00.  But you can use your $40 Gift card to buy a little more than $50 worth of merchandise.

Okay... now I feel a little bit foolish. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: I never thought of that interpretation!

I used the circa sampler gift card in combination with their 25% off on Black Friday to get a circa leverage punch. Only $19 charged to the cc, so it clearly worked.
