Can A Referral Credit & Promo Code Be Combined or Not?
Have the terms for using a referral credit and a promo code in the same purchase transaction changed AGAIN?! It was only a few days ago that I confirmed in another thread that both a credit and promo code could be used together.
To make sure that both can be used, I decided to test the Buy Now option on a 4 night stay that totaled over $1100. On the invoice page it shows that my $50 credit was automatically deducted off the price. So far so good. I then entered a promo code that would take another discount off the final price. The system allowed me to use the promo code, however, it removed my $50 credit at the same time and said:
"Credit on file removed. You cannot combine promotional credit with Promo Code XXX."
I know for a fact that a friend of mine (who referred me to LL) was able to use both a credit and a promo code not that long ago. So I am very shocked that something has changed. I truly feel that using BOTH a credit and a promo code should be permitted for 1st time purchases since the credit can only be used that one time. Being able to use both together was the biggest incentive for me to try LL.
What does everyone else think about these changes that do not appear to be announced anywhere? I keep trying to obtain up-to-date info so that I am not hit with any surprises along the way, which is rather difficult when the rules keep changing behind the scenes, ugh!
