Here are the answers to the questions we hear most often from our loyal customers at AmericanFlags.com:
I received a notice that if I sign up for your email list, I can get 10% off my order. I have another coupon code; can I use two coupon codes? While you cannot use two coupon codes on the same order, you can use the best coupon code on items that are already marked down, which will really boost your savings!
If multiple promotions are happening at the same time, am I able to use both coupons? Unless otherwise noted, you will only be able to use one promo code at a time. To cancel a promo code and apply a different one to your order, hit the button "cancel coupon code" underneath the "apply discount code" tab.
Your shipping charges seem high; how come? Shipping costs are based on your delivery address, weight and dimensions of the items that you ordered. We give you multiple choices of carrier and shipping speeds so that you can choose the best option before finalizing your order.
Do you offer free shipping? AmericanFlags.com may offer free shipping on orders using USPS Ground Advantage during special promotional periods. This promotion will only apply to eligible items. AmericanFlags.com reserves the right to deny free shipping for products that are oversized and otherwise require the use of expensive shipping methods.
Why am I getting charged a retail delivery fee? Effective July 1, 2022, Colorado imposed a retail delivery fee on all deliveries by motor vehicle to a location in Colorado with at least one item of tangible personal property subject to state sales or use tax. This Retail Delivery Fee is added to all orders shipping to the state of Colorado and is not refundable.
How do I enter my Coupon – Discount – Promo Code?
Once you have all your items in your cart and you are ready to place your order, click on your cart in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. A small pop-up box will show your items and a button for “Proceed to Checkout” and a link to “View and Edit Cart”.
If you choose to View and/or Edit your cart, click that link and you will be redirected to the Cart Page. There you will see on the bottom left of the cart the words, “Coupon Code” followed by a down arrow. Click there and a box will open up where you can either type your discount code or paste it after first copying it from your email. Then click the button next to that field called, “Apply Coupon”. A green message will show on the bottom right of your screen saying that “You used coupon code XXX” Then click the green button for “Checkout” to see the discount and finish placing your order.
If you chose to go directly to the Checkout page, on the right-hand side you will see the “Order Summary” which includes your items, the subtotal, space for shipping amount once selected, the Order Total, and the option to sign up for our newsletter. Below that you will see the words, “Apply Discount Code” followed by a down arrow right above the blue “Place Order” button. Click there and a box will open up where you can either type your discount code or paste it after first copying it from your email. Then click the button next to that field called, “Apply Discount”. A green message will show on the bottom right of your screen saying that “Your coupon successfully applied”. Once you have entered the code, the Order Summary will update with the discount amount.
If you choose to remove an entered coupon code either in your Cart or in Checkout, click the field again and you will see a “Cancel Coupon” button where the Apply one was previously. A green message will appear on the bottom right of your screen saying that “You canceled the coupon code".
You may only enter one coupon code per order. If you want to use a different one, you can remove the first one and put in the second code.
How do I see how much shipping will be?
