Google Offers Newegg $20/$40 canceled codes now working - YMMV

Thread Details

So when the google offers $20 for $40 deal happened I bought 3 using the same credit card and 3 different email addresses. Soon after purchase I was told that I could only use 1 out of the 3 codes I received, if I placed an order with the other codes the order would be canceled, so I asked for 2 of the 3 orders to be refunded.

I just got the "According to our records, you have not yet redeemed your $20 for $40 Google Offer for" email last night. I thought it must be some glitch that I got the email seeing how I only received it to 1 of the 2 canceled order's email addresses.

For shits and giggles I decided to try the codes anyway to see if they worked. And what do you know they did! Both canceled order codes worked! The offer shows up as expired on the Google Offers page but I was still able to view the link to the codes.

I double checked my AMEX statement online and sure enough I did get two separate $20 refunds on Nov 29th.

Placed two orders this morning with the codes and I've already received the tracking numbers! (Shop Runner Free 2day)

So this may be YMMV since I emailed and asked for a refund but if you did get a refund like I, try your codes and see if they work or not.

I normally don't thumbs down, but when I do it's stealing.

Slickdeal: YMMV, I punched a hobo with a cup of money and it spilled into my pocket. I received well over 74 cents, so I tried it on the next hobo I saw. Sure enough I received a bonus 22 cents! This may not work for everyone, but I thought I could maybe help some, YMMV!

Yeah, stealing doesn't make for a slick deal.

If I recall correctly, the Newegg Google Offers $20/$40 does have an expiration date of end of this month.

I got a question for you OP. Did the codes still give you $40 off? Because I had a valid code and used it on February 26th at like 12pm and the promotion says redeem by February 26th. It only gave me $20, but I placed the order anyways cause I figured I could contact NewEgg and have them fix it.

I emailed them about it and they gave me some BS answer that the code was expired... But then how was I still able to use it? If it says redeem by a certain date, you can still use it on that date right? If a grocery coupon says expires on 3/1/2012, you can still use it on 3/1/2012. If you were able to get the $40 after the promotional period has expired, I would NOT BE PLEASED with NewEgg.

I'm going to give their CS a call soon to figure this out.
