I just used the same code.
It only works if you're a Newegg newsletter subscriber(you receive daily emails from Newegg).
I'm not sure if this would work but you could try subscribing first, then trying to apply the promo.

Finally got it working through desktop and with multiple attempts of finessing. Unfortunately, living in NJ i get hit with taxes which kind of kills the deal for me. Repped OP because as stated Unifi item discounts are hard to come by. Thanks OP

I have some Ubiquiti access points but don't understand what this is for. Could anyone give me the layman's explanation?

Its the controller for all Unifi products. It gives a single point of administration for their UAPs, switches, routers, etc. I honestly wouldnt recommend the Unifi stuff without the cloud key. Some people run the controller software on a Windows or Mac.. but that computer needs to be on 24/7 to monitor all the network activity. And even then.. the java based application isnt exactly reliable for a win/mac environment. Just get the cloud key and have one less headache to deal with.

Thanks. Repped. The pc loaded controller is a challenge.

To manage Ubiquiti Unifi devices (USG, switches, APs, etc) with a GUI, you need to have an instance of Unifi running. You can install this on a Mac/PC for initial setup, but if you don't have that machine running 24/7 then you are going to be missing out on the metrics and statistics that Unifi gathers, which is the best part about Unifi.

The Cloud Key (which is terribly named) is just a small ARM-powered device that runs Unifi. It can be powered by PoE, which makes it fit in nicely with Ubiquiti Unifi device deployments. Other options aside from this device, or the previously mentioned Mac/PC options, would be to install Unifi on a Raspberry PI, a cloud service, or even a NAS device that can run Unifi.

edit: To be additionally clear, each Unifi device also runs its own instance of Unifi, but as was mentioned above, you would have to basically manage each instance separately unless you have a Cloud Key or other standalone instance of Unifi running as well since that gives you a single point for managing and monitoring all devices.

You can demo the Unifi controller here and see all the stuff you can manage with a cloud key:
