StockX is an online marketplace founded as an exchange for designer sneakers. It’s since been updated to include all shoes, watches, handbags, and street apparel. The site aims to offer great user experience to both buyers and sellers. So if you’re into any of the above and considering making your first purchase on StockX, you might as well take advantage of the new user discount.
New User Discounts
As a new user on StockX, you get a welcome discount code. When you finish registering, you’ll receive a promo code valid for $300 off any watch priced at $3,000 or more or $50 off any handbag $500 or more. So if you’re looking to buy some luxury items, this can be a terrific deal.
Unfortunately, for now at least, StockX doesn’t offer first purchase discounts on sneakers. Once you get the code, you have 14 days to make your first purchase. If for some reason you didn’t get a code after signing up, you can send a message here . StockX support will send you a new one.
If you aren’t a new user, you still might qualify for discounts on StockX products at one of those sites that collect promo codes. If you’ve already got a favorite site, hop over there and look for active StockX promo codes. Usually, you’ll see codes that are valid for a specific month. You may find discounts on watches, handbags, and sneakers, too.
After a coupon is revealed, just use it within the specified timeframe and there may be terms and conditions. Here’s what you should do:
- Select the item that you want to buy and add to the cart.
- During the checkout, you’ll be asked if you’ve got any promo code. Either that or look for the promo code box.
- Copy and paste the code into the box and finish the order.
