Not sure if this is the right forum to post my question so if it isn't I will happily move it (please let me know where to though!).

When using codes on Amazon that give you 100% discount on products (provided by sellers in good faith of me reviewing their products), is it possible to use more than 1 of these codes in the same order? It always accepts my 2nd and 3rd code but doesn't actually apply the discount. Last time I had this problem I simply ordered everything as a separate order as I had a Prime account so shipping was free but I no longer have Prime so want to group the items into 1 order to avoid postage charges. Any ideas?

    I think bazzyb is talking about something slightly different - i.e. codes provided by Amazon itself - but you may be talking about 'vouchers' (or codes, as the world calls them!) provided direct by sellers through a site such as AMZReviews.

    The answer is 'it depends' - and what it depends on is whether or not the seller has ticked the 'exclusivity' box when they sign up to use AMZReviews to promote their products. Exclusivity means that any voucher code they supply cannot be used in conjunction with any other voucher codes, whether supplied by them on a different items or supplied by other sellers. Unfortunately there is no way of telling in advance whether or not the seller has ticked that particular box...

    Sorry about the confusion. I was indeed referring to 'vouchers' (or voucher codes) provided to me directly by the sellers through the AMZ Review website.

    Did you find out about the 'exclusivity' box form Amazon directly, Brynsam? I'd not heard of it before but it makes sense as to why the codes work separately but not in the same order. I guess that does it for me with the AMZ Reviews website as I'm not going to pay £4 delivery fee for every single product (some of them are only worth a fiver!). Last time I did each item as a separate order they were posted in the same package anyway!

    No, not from Amazon itself. One of the AMZReview sellers told me when I asked if it was possible to have two of his items sent in the same order while using two separate codes for them, which would save him a lot of postage.
