Used the 25% code with my $2.02 credit from them sending me the wrong Joy Ride movie and got:
Looking for Kitty for $1.34
Starstruck for $1.40
Total: $4.27 shipped
Went really cheap on my order because no FS.

CritterYawn, thanks for starting the thread regarding this sale. I pm'd a mod to correct the thread title, unless April now has 32 days and I haven't been made aware of it.

I find it cheaper to use the 20% with free shipping than this code.

That is basically correct.
However, I have to ask one thing. Since until now I have only placed orders with SecondSpin when 20% off and FS were in effect, I don't know how the shipping varies with the order $ amount or item number. Depending on this, it might, or it might not be possible that for larger orders, this coupon to be better than the heynow-like ones.

Can someone shed some light into this issue?

Larger orders of higher-priced items will save you money. The more you order, the lower the cut-off of what makes a good deal becomes. Never(*) order anything lower than $10, since the extra 5% discount will not offset the 50-cent extra shipping price.

Shipping for the first item is $3.00. Ordering a $100 item for $75+tax+$3 shipping is better than ordering it at $80+tax using heynow. The cutoff is right around $60 for ordering only 1 item as to it starting to save you money. $35 each for 2, $20 each for 5, and so on. As you order more items, the $3 shipping for the first one gets distributed across the rest of your order. Meanwhile, the comparatively smaller incremental shipping of the others ($.50 each) allows that cutoff level for ordering to drop.

Note those numbers are for cheaper domestic shipping.


(*) Of course, if it is a rare or hard-to-find item, or you really want it, a few pennies here or there isn't going to matter. I'm talking mathematically with respect to the best deals, not from a collector's desire standpoint. But if you're willing to wait, you're better off with a 20%-off + FS deal.

Just to be sure everyone knows, wherehouse.com (same stock and USUALLY same prices as secondspin) is having 20% off + free shipping right now, but as Cheato said, depending on the prices of what you're ordering, the deal could be better at secondspin
