    I followed your steps for creating a free shipping coupon, but it did not work for me. In addition, I only want the coupon to work for shipments to 48 contiguous US states, i.e., will not work for Alaska or Hawaii and an order of greater than a specified amount. Without the “Conditions”, even if this coupon worked, all shipments will have Free Shipping no matter what as long as they use the coupon.
    I know how to do free shipping without the coupon that will work with the conditions I wrote above, but I want customers to use coupon codes instead of automatic free shipment.

    Any comments?

      I just ran into this same problem. So far the only solution I’ve found is to enter the shipping information in the “Get Shipping Quote” section during checkout. Apparently Magento can’t apply the free shipping coupon to the cart before validating that the ship to information matches with the conditions of the rule. It’d be more convenient (ie, less confusing for the customer) if the coupon could be applied first, then validated during the checkout process instead of at the view cart screen.

    No, didn’t work. Made sure your steps were followed, entered the code, which I double-checked, and it said it was invalid. Now, I CAN make one for a specific $ off, or % off, but not for free shipping….

    I followed your steps for creating a free shipping coupon, but am having a problem. I am trying to place an order through the administration panel under Orders. I select the products I want to purchase and my shipping method, I then enter my coupon and click apply. This zeros out the shipping price, but also makes the Shipping Method box display like I haven’t selected a shipping method already so when I hit submit I receive an error indicating that I must select a shipping method.

    I think you need to set: Apply to Shipping Amount: – YES instead of NO … then Magento applies this code to the Shipping amount.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could definitely be one of the best in its field.

    Good blog!
