Online shop discounts dissapointment

Philippines
August 6, 2022 1:10pm CST
Yesterday, I visited Shopee one of the leading online shop here in the Philippines. Shopee and Lazada both offer shipping voucher discounts. So I browse some Shipping vouchers. and I found one, It says ""Free shipping, Zero minimum spend" So I click and use it. And I browse some sneaker shoes. So I found a shoe that I really like. While on checkout I click the "Choose voucher" so I click that and found out that the voucher I collected is unusable because the item did not meet the T&C. ~Sigh!, I woke up dawn 1 am just to meet and get the voucher. and now I can't use it. A really bad experience. Does this happen to you as well?

You should do online shopping. Scams happen rarely but not always.

It can if I am not careful about what I am doing. Ie: read everything and ensure what I am getting works. In some cases I have to guess, and hope.

Yes, that same thing has happened to me when I'm trying to use an online coupon. I find out that it can't be used for what I want to use it on. Kind of disappointing!

It has happened to me a lot on TaoBao (Chinese online platform). Especially during holidays when it’s flooded with vouchers half of them didn’t work.

That happened many years ago with a gift card I had received from a relative at Christmas. It was for 40 dollars at a store that is not nearby. The online store page was the only way to buy anything and use the gift card. I tried over and over and it would never accept the gift card code. I was never able to use the gift card.
