Code-Based Special Example:
I want to make a special that will allow anyone who saw my ad in the paper to get a $5 discount if they bring in the coupon with the code "CODE420."
Here is how I can make this special. I can leave many of the options on their default setting. Only changing the following:
I named my special "Code 420 - Ad."
Type of Discount - I selected the cash option '$," and In the corresponding text field, I entered "5."
Once I hit "Save," this code is available. To give the discount at checkout, budtenders will enter the CODE420 during the transaction.
