Using online coupon codes or promotional offers while shopping online is same as using paper coupons or shopping on sales at local stores. But unlike paper coupons that you use to redeem in local stores, online stores have a code to use during checkout that give you specific discount and that amount is subtracted from the total purchase. The discounts range from 5% to 80 % savings or free shipping.

A coupon code will be a mix of letters or numbers, usually around 5 to 10 characters in all caps, that will sometimes appear random (ex. CLIQMEN100).
