My code isn’t working
There could be various reasons for this. Check out this article to figure out what’s going on
I forgot to add my student promo code on an order I placed
Unfortunately, codes can’t be retroactively used for an order that you’ve already placed. Keep it safe and use it another time on Back Market before it expires.
I used a student code but my order was canceled or refunded
Since the promo code can only be used once, we’ll need to generate a new one for you. Check out our article on refunded orders purchased with a promo code
