UPDATE 11:30 PM 11/29/2013: BF20 code is working again (it has stopped working this morning). Apparently, they’ll be releasing new codes each morning. At the top of their page it now says:
An abundance of smiles, our Black Friday code, “BF20″ made a lot of people smile. We will be releasing a few codes each morning at 8AM PST so that more people can smile.
UPDATE 9PM EST 11/28/2013: BF20 code is now live
There are many great deals coming out this weekend for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc. One of my favorites is this offer from TwoSmiles by HP. Buy a printable gift card and get 20% off with the code BF20.
TwoSmiles has a large list of gift cards to choose from, but the discount code will not work for Amazon or Groupon gift cards. Note that each time this site offers gift card discounts, they sell out quickly. Unfortunately, I don’t know whether the code will become live late Thursday night or Friday morning.
Here are the gift cards available as of Wednesday evening:
Caution: Not everything is all smiles with TwoSmiles. Please read this caution from a reader:
In late October, I purchased $300 worth of Sears gift cards (using various discount codes). One of the orders canceled, but $250 of charges went through on my credit cards.
I only received four “here is your card” emails. Each card was a unique Halloween design, but two of them included the same gift card number.
I never received “here is your card” emails for the final two, and I received an email receipts for only one of them.
The “print card” links in all receipt emails lead to an “out of stock” error message.
There is no phone number to contact TwoSmiles. I’ve filled out a request on their technical support form online and hope they’ll help me resolve this; if not I will be filing a dispute with the credit cards.
Good luck getting in on this deal if you’re willing to brave it! And, have a very happy Thanksgiving!
