Last Friday I placed my biggest order (in terms of $$$) ever. I have terrible timing. A 20% discount is really nice.

This looks so good, sadly it can't be used with the student discount. :(

Please notice:

You can use the code only once.

I made an order last week and today I want to place a second order, but in this case the code don't work a second time.

Maybe you can find someone locally who will place the order on your behalf?

Are some of the puzzles in your cart dyed? It only applies to:
White Strong & Flexible
White Strong & Flexible Polished
[... and other materials not useful for puzzle prints ...]

Not certain if this applies to this discount but in the past I know Shapeways has typically applied the discount to their cost and not the markup added by the designer. So one way this might happen would be if you ordered a 5.85 euro puzzle which the designer had put a 245 euro markup on it. I think that is very unlikely so Brandon is likely much closer to the mark.

I'm in the process of building an order myself so I'm not yet sure if the current discount applies to the designer's mark up or not. But I think in the past there was one time when it did and Shapeways still paid out to the designer at their full markup. So say a designer uses a 100% markup this would in effect be a 40% discount on the Shapeways cost and I don't think they are likely to do that again. If a designer is using an even higher markup it could get to the point that Shapeways ends up paying the designer more then they are getting from the buyer.

At what point do I put in the coupon code? I can't seem to find the box to put it in and I'm at the point where it wants my credit card info. I'd hate to put that info in and it's too late.
Thanks!

You put in the code on the last page (Confirmation) the one with the "Place your order" orange button, you might have to scroll down a little to see the "Promo code" box.

I ran into the same problem. I didn't want to accidentally place an order of such magnitude without the discount. I went through the process with a "test order" first to make sure the last page contained the discount code. Shapeways should put some text on the earlier pages of the process saying "discount codes and store credit can be applied at the last page of this process".

I had similar confusion until I re-read the top post which does layout the covered materials. I had to adjust my order to conform which means I suppose I'll now have to do some part dyeing myself.
Derek Bosch's Helical Burr and Grigr's micro Megaminx will be my first ever Shapeways orders!

I made good use of this sale and have 2 of my new puzzle designs now on their way to me.

I also sold one of my Untouchable 11 Master Challenge puzzles. I'm going to guess the buyer purchased it when they did due to the sale and may have seen this thread. I'm curious who it was so I can thank them. If they don't mind letting me know who they are would they be kind enough to post or PM me?

Thanks,
Carl

It looks like anyone with their own models to print can make use of another 20% discount using code h2mia:

http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=7115af9a58288aadeddb6390b&id=a0c30ecce9

So if you didn't get all of the designing work done you wanted, you have until the 25th for this discount :D

I've bought my first Shapeway puzzle with the first discount, and am considering to start learning design. I guess I don't have much time to start learning!

Thank god, I thought I missed the window. I still have to finish designing a puzzle for someone, so this will certainly help out with the final price!

I think that discount only applies to models under 20cm. Unfortunately.

I thought so too but if you read their ad carefully, they mean cm, not cm^3. The model can't have a length greater than 20cm in any of the three major axes.

Were you ordering your own models and abiding by the material restrictions?
