Orders placed on the 21st (by midnight Central time) receive a free gift: a set of three votive candles of your choice.
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 (though it will not print the actual note, but since I’m running this free gift thing, I’ll actually go into the system looking for the note when I see the flag and I 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 then type the name of the type of candle you want — you can choose anything you see listed and in stock, anything I normally keep in stock that doesn’t show quantity 0 (limited edition candles such as Sanguis Veneris can only be made once a year, for instance, so it’s not likely there’ll be any of those in stock, but all the usual conjure formulas are eligible).
There’s no special format because a machine is not reading this, it’s not like the coupon codes that get applied automatically; as long as you type “countdown” in the box, I’ll see the flag when I print your order, and I’ll go into the system to manually pull whatever it is you typed into that box, such as “countdown van van” or “countdown, blessing candles please” or “countdown, 2 love and 1 money” or whatever – it doesn’t matter, just as long as you include the word “countdown.” And if you check out before midnight Central time, you’ll get your free candles included alongside your other items when I ship your stuff. (Since you are NOT using the coupon code box, that means you CAN also use a coupon with the same order, too!)
Check back tomorrow for the next countdown gift item!
