Weird, I placed an order Fri and the on sale merchandise and the 20% was taken off in addition to the sale price. I didn't even have to use the code.

But on Sat I think the prices were already adjusted to take 20% off, so no additional 20% off. However I sent an email just to see if I could get the additional 20% off.

I ordered on both Friday and Saturday, too. Friday's order was adjusted by STP automatically and I received an updated order confirmation taking an additional 20% off the website/email prices.
On Saturday my total remained the same. I asked their live customer service and they told me "the code was not intended to take an additional 20% off." I'm not going to press it....they are a great company and I shop them regularly. Plus the two items I ordered are BIG, not very expensive and will probably cost them my entire total to ship. I used a free ship riddle/answer.

Who can tell me exactly where the riddles are in the catalogs?
I have quite a few including the "warehousesale winter 2003" that just came in but I can never find a riddle in any of the catalogs, although I have used those here at FW and they worked most of the time.

Also anyone can confirm which is still working? I used the SpaghettiOs last Friday but it didn't appear to work. Thanks.

BOHEMIAN: I once wondered the same thing about how to find the riddles in the Sierra catalogs. You've got to spend the time to read the catalog carefully and you'll find the riddle embedded in the product description. For example, look on pg. 44 of their Winter 2003 Adventure Edge catalog. Included in the description of the Adze Ice Tool is a riddle about an international event started January 25, 1924.

The code WWS12H is only good on 'selected' items! Sierra didn't honor their promise to credit the extra 20% off with this code, thus, I've cancelled my orders. Usually they are really good about this, but perhaps the end of the year prices are just too good... and too much $$$ is lost if they give this discount? Oh well...

I placed my orders before 9am... 'Susan' was the online chat person the second time around, and she was far less 'giving' in regards to the extra 20% off than 'Kim' was the first time around!

I will continue to do business with them... I think both their service and products are great, but at least for this go around, they seem much less likely to give that 'extra' 20% off.

I did get the free shipping though... thanks to the Henry Morgan riddle and answers.

Riddle: Name the historical event that was Crucial to the development of standard sizes for ready-made clothing in America, what kind of clothing to which the sizes were first applied and who wore this clothing to earn free ground shipping on your entire order.

Answer: World War I, the federal government defined standard clothing sizes to help the nation's garment industry meet the demand for military uniforms. Soldiers were the first to wear the clothing.

EDIT TO ADD: I am finding some conflicting information. Some sites are saying standard clothing sizes were developed during the Civil War.

I just googled out riddle 2 answer:
¡°International Sports Week 1924¡±, "The First Olympic Winter Games", in Chamonix, France, Norway.

bano, you can call or chat with stp and tell them you answered a riddle but no credit given. they would ask you which riddle and what's your answer and you tell them riddle 2. I know they no longer keep the riddle with your order once the order is processed so they would take your word and credit you for the shipping.

The code "WWS12H" is no good. According to STP: "That code refers to the Warehouse Sale, which is for selected items rather than the whole order, and the discounted prices appeared on the item pages."

rated:
20% ? I'd happy if there is a 10% code. It appears that stp feels losing money and tighting the % off code and even the free shipping code now have a min $50, $100 purchase requirement.

btw WB10H is also good for free ship over $50 till 1/18
