What are the legal rules and usage policies?

By installing the software you agree to the Cently Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, as well as terms by Inside all of that legal jargon there are a few things you should note:


How do I use a coupon code?

Just click the code you want, and it will automatically populate the promotion code box. Then be sure to hit the apply or redeem button (or hit "Enter" on the keyboard) on the retailer website.

Sweet it worked! What do I do now?

You can just checkout and place your order... in all your glory of having just saved some sweet cash. Alternatively, you can also vote that coupon worked (this helps us), and even share it on Twitter or Facebook (this makes you look cool).

Will the codes always work?

We verify hundreds of coupons per day. However, please have realistic expectations - if we tell you it is likely to be expired or not working, it probably won't work. If it is really old, it may not work. HOWEVER, there have been many cases where old coupons work. Since you can quickly and easily try coupons, feel free to give it a shot. But again, have realistic expectations.

The code didn't work! Now what!

Stay Positive - Different retailers have different coupon policies. Some might have a coupon that works for many years, while others might expire them after a few days. If a code doesn't work, don't complain to the retailer, just continue on with checkout.
