    maybe get an R4 free now that ''wood'' is out when you buy something expensive like CycloDS or Supercard DSTWO or when your orders are over a certain amount

    that's unlikely to ever happen, because both (microSD & shipping) are offered at cost price...
    for the shipping, it's even less than cost price. In reality there's no such thing as "free shipping", they always have to pay for it one way or another.
    express shipping is less expensive when your order amount is higher, but it's still an illusion, they still have to pay a high price for it.

    They don't sell AKRPGs.
    If I'm not mistaken it's an old flashcart no longer in production too.

    Discount points of 1 cent each, you get 1 for every 10 posts on GBATemp...
    And 1 for every ten downloads at filetrip...

    Terrible idea.
    Don't encourage people to post wildly so they can get discounts.
    And download counts at filetrip could be easily forged.

    this.
    that shall attract spamming...
    will be wasting GBAtemp's bandwidth too.

    anyway...
    - free accessory [worth $5 or less] when you spend $10/20 or more
    - save 10% on any flashcart [you can only buy 1 flashcart at a time to make this coupon work]

    Rather than coupons (which have to be paid for either by lowering profit or raising prices) - how about steady low prices? Then there's no massive influx of outsiders gouging the vendor after someone inevitably posts the coupon in a dozen other forums...

    No need for coupons, really. I'd say a special deal every week, like this: 'Next week, everything is at half the price!' or: 'The week after, if you buy over $50 worth of products, you get a free pouch for your DS!' and so on.

    It's not really a coupon but spend a certain amount of money ($50 or more?) and get a randomly chosen free gift?
