Hobbyking/HobbyCity/UnitedHobby discount code anyone?

The last email I got was from 11/20 and no longer works. Anyone have a recent discount code that works?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Setph280 for that. I've never done a review and didn't know.

Ouch, less than 4 dolloars off for the review discount.

Anyone have a discount code they would could share. I haven't bought from them in a while and so last discount email was 11/20...... all codes invalid now.

Thanks guys!

Discount codes for HobbyCity are few and far between. Be thankful you are getting the stuff that cheap in the first place with how the dollar is tanking.

Thanks rcBluebird but like my code it's invalid. I hope someone has a working %5 or something off the total instead of the 3-5 dollar off from a review.

Oh, the code may tie to its particular email or account. Actually, all you haveto do is to select an item that you or your friend know about, write a review, and submit. You will get the code instantly after that.

How do you use the code once you get it? I wrote a review to get a code but then didn't know what to do with it..

Just out of curiousity, what kind of discounts are yall seeing for your "Review"?

I think 1 of my earlier reviews received 3%, but the past few I've done were only 1%...

When you give a review, you are taken to a page that reads

Review posted
Your review has been added.
Your discount code is: *****************
Assigned to email:RV-***********
Read current reviews

Copy the discount code (mine not shown here because as you see its assigned to my account) and on your next order write the code in the block for it.

I have never received an email on a discount code, and make sure to only write a review the day Im buying something else, because they dont last long..

As fate would have it, even that discount code was only good for 1% off.

Why even write a review to get 2 dollars off of a 200.00 order?

I have not placed an ordered at HC laterly, but I got 5% discount on my previous order. It helped a little on the shipping cost.
