voucher codes how do they work

How do voucher codes work? I was on an equestrian site to buy some jodhpurs and there was a box for a voucher code. Not having taken advantage of voucher code boxes before, I decided to give it a try.
I went on to a voucher code site and there were voucher codes for the Kramer Equestrian site. The offers were in Euros and there was one for 5% off. I did not know which one applied so I copied the first voucher code into the Kramer site and it said invalid. I tried copying the next code and the next and the next and the Kramer site rejected all. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to become a member? Do I have to subscribe to something? Or is it all a waste of time?

    I have had a thought. I am using the Kramer website, but the jodphurs are made by Felix Buhler. So does the code have to apply to the manufacturer of the goods Felix Buhler and not the Kramer website?
    The voucher website I tried using was voucher-discountscodes.

    Maybe ask Kramer direct - impossible to know from what you've said here.

    I can't find a website called voucher-discountcodes so cant really help you.

    Was the discount code in £ and therefore a uk code?

    Sometimes codes have t&c's and are only valid against certain spends or items,

    The codes could of expired.

    The only code I can find for Kramer at the minute is SAVE5 but cant see any t&c's so could be a minimum spend

    As its all in euros, that's probably why your codes didnt work.

    You need to really look on here or hukd for discount codes.

    Did the one I list above work?

    Looks like a very poorly designed template web site

    Legal terms and other web page at the bottom are blank , news page has 1 post

    Looks like someone's hobby rather than a real codes web site

    Ok thank you. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out. Are voucher codes worth pursuing? All seems a lot of messing about to me. Retailers should give you their best price and have done with it. Or have I just been unlucky at my first attempt?

    Sarah1972. Ok and thanks. I will give it another go. Is there a special website? And if there is, what do I do?
