Ordering & My Account
Q: Do You Offer A Frequent Shopper Discount?
A: To thank our customers for ordering, Ellen Hutson, LLC offers a Frequent Shopper Discount each month. Customers who have placed an order in the previous two-month time frame will receive a promo code for 10% off their purchase total before shipping. Customers can use this code as many times as they desire, and using it qualifies customers to receive another code the very next month!
Frequent Shopper emails are sent out on the first of each month and are valid for the entire month. The discount cannot be combined with other promo codes but will combine with sales and discounts that do not require a code. We appreciate that customers do not distribute this discount code. We reserve the right to verify the order history of shoppers using the Frequent Shopper Discount.
