Umm... when I try to use the promo code TURKEY per the above I get the following error:

There is a problem with the information you have supplied.
The promotion code has expired


I have checked that it's November 27th in multiple places now to make sure I'm not crazy; plus it's my sisters birthday so I'm pretty confident it's 10/27 today. =)

Hopefully Proporta sees this in time to fix it!

:edit: I bet it's no longer November 27th in the UK which is probably the problem.

Default It's not just you.

I tried it at Nov27, noon, PST--about 9pm, Nov27, UK time--and the code didn't work for me either, but, since I was already 90% through the process on a $20 case, I just bought the darned thing anyway. I sent a note to Proporta, who got back to me and didn't quite read my comment--that I had ALREADY PLACED AN ORDER and that the code didn't work--and gave me a different code (THANKSGIVING) that's allegedly supposed to work. So, by the time I got their reply, my order had already shipped, so I couldn't cancel it and re-order it. I replied to Natalie but didn't get an answer, so I suspect I'll hear back on Monday. I would think, as a matter of principle, that they'd give me the discount anyway.

Thanks for screwing around with my holiday, Proporta...

Oh, and PS, since the code was only supposed to work for orders to the US and Canada, it should have been coded to Nov27, US/Canadian time, not UK time.

I just sent this info to Natalie, also. I'll follow up for you guys.

There's a new promo code in the post. Try it out and let me know how it goes. I tried it and was able to get the discount.
