Snagged a 38mm blue MK3 on a hybrid, then added the metal bracelet and 125$ coupon.

$611 total. First CW incoming :D
How are you using a coupon on a clearance item and a bracelet? every time i add a watch from the clearance section that's on a strap and then add the bracelet for it to the cart and enter the coupon, it says the coupon is not valid.

I dunno man. I added the sale watch, then added the bracelet, then added 125xmas or whatever. Were you using the correct coupon for the corresponding country website?

In theory I believe that one should not be able to use a voucher in conjunction with a promo (e.g. Black Friday) or a sale/clearance/NN item. Nor on a Limited Edition.

The software should not allow it. In theory.

Yes. I thought i saw someone else earlier in this thread mention they used a code and bought a bracelet as well, but when i tried it, i kept getting "code invalid" error. this is what has kept me from making a purchase. i wanted one of the C65 Trident Automatics with a black dial from the last sale a week ago but all they had was the strap version. even with the 30% off, adding the bracelet back on brought the total back up to just barely under the new price using the $125 off coupon, so i gave up.

Amor is correct though, after reading the email, the code should not work. the fine print says "*Valid until midnight 24 November 2019. Enter code in the “promo code” box at checkout to apply the saving. Voucher codes are not valid on clearance, sale, nearly new or archive items. T&Cs apply, see vouchers for details" so there's clearly a glitch in their software allowing some orders to go through.

This has worked for many years and CW would have stopped it or fixed the glitch if it was not allowed. For some reason, the promo code does not work on the C65 22mm bracelet but worked fine for me on the C60 22mm SS bracelet, titanium bracelet and leather straps.

The UK site will have about a 8 - 10% lower price than the .com/US site after conversion through my credit card company. Paypal conversion is crap as well so make sure to charge in it GBP and not USD when you use Paypal. And use a credit card that does not charge foreign transaction fees.

Limited Editions are not excluded from the promo code and they work just fine.

^^^Thank you, Frank. I was working from memory and knew about the sale items.

The UK site shows 695 pounds for a C60 on the hybrid, while the US site shows $795 for the same watch. Google says 1 pound is roughly 1.3 dollars, so the C60 would be almost 895 dollars if doing a conversion. What am i missing?

The GBP price includes VAT at 20%
