Countdown to Christmas – Free Gift With Order – Day 6

Orders placed on the 20th (by midnight Central time) receive a free gift: a half-ounce bottle of Three Kings oil.

Type code countdown in the comment/note box as you are checking out. Do NOT use the Paypal note/comment box — it won’t work — and do NOT use the coupon code box – it won’t work. Use the comment/note box in the Shopify checkout, the one that I’m always telling you not to use because it won’t print with your order and I won’t see it 🙂 I have come up with a workable (if ugly) patch for Shopify’s template code that will send the order through to me with a flag if there’s a note, and since I’m running this free gift thing, I’ll actually go into the system looking for the note and will mark your order as a gift recipient manually after I print it.

That’s all you have to do – just type countdown in the comment/note box in Shopify as you are checking out, and if you check out before midnight Central time, you’ll get a free half-ounce bottle of Three Kings oil included alongside your other items. (Since you are NOT using the coupon code box, that means you CAN also use a coupon with the same order.)

Check back tomorrow for the next countdown gift item!

    Basically you’re looking for the editable text box that you use to send a note with your order. It’s not called the same thing on all pages, most likely. Let’s see… ok, on the main cart page, using a full size Firefox window on a desktop, it’s called “special instructions.” I’ve tried to build a checkout that’s as streamlined as possible, so it shouldn’t involve lots of pages to click through, and you should see it on the first or second page no matter what machine and interface you’re using – some sort of editable text box other than the one for coupon codes. Hope that helps but if not, let me know what software and hardware you’re using.
