Coupon: $10 off a Basecamp upgrade Ryan 02 Nov 2005

7 comments Latest by JF

In order to test our new coupon system (launched last night), we’d like to offer $10 off for people who upgrade to a higher Basecamp plan. This includes people upgrading from the free 1-project plan to any paying plan. This offer is only available to the first 100 people who use the coupon — after that the coupon will no longer work.

Here’s how you do it.

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Click the Account tab.
  3. Upgrade to a higher plan by clicking the “Upgrade” button in the account chart.
  4. Enter coupon code HRI2GV6ZRJ in the coupon box.
  5. Submit the upgrade.

You’ll receive a $10 credit on your next bill statement. For example, if you are upgrading from Free to Plus, you’ll only be charged $39 for the first month instead of $49.

The credit is a one-time credit of $10. It’s not $10 off each month, just the next charge. The coupon is only available to people who upgrade to a higher plan — you can’t use it on your existing plan or during a downgrade.

Let us know if you spot any problems. Thanks!

Thanks for the coupon code, worked a treat on my upgrade. :)

That was (as always) easy - cool, thanks.

It would be nice to know if the coupon were still valid before I had to pay. If I upgrade right now, I have to put in my credit card. If the coupon is no good, how will I know until payment is applied on the screen following submit?

You’ll get a message saying the coupon wasn’t valid when you submit the upgrade — you won’t be charged.

Ok, good to know. I think it would be helpful to point that out beforehand, though. Most shopping experiences let you apply coupons and credits before a total is calculated.

I don’t get it. It sure looks like Basecamp is using PHP, but isn’t it a showcase application for Ruby on Rails? I must be missing something …

The Basecamp public marketing site uses PHP for some includes here and there, but Basecamp itself is entirely Ruby on Rails.
