You can only use one promo code per transaction, and you must do so before the code expires. In addition, you cannot re-use your promo code or get a refund on it if you cancel or return your order, or if the value of the promo code exceeds the total value of your order.  Finally, you cannot use a promo code to pay for a gift card.
