You might have a promotion that only runs for a week or every Thursday - use this guide to better understand the validity tab in Promotions.



First let's define Validity/Exceptions Periods...

For example, say you have a March 2 for 1 promotion running but you DO NOT want it to run on Mother's Day - you can use exception dates for this purpose.

PLEASE NOTE: The Annual Repeat tick box means that EVERY YEAR this/these DATE(s) will NOT be included in the promotion


Pros: Good for a holiday that is the same date (i.e. Valentines, Christmas, St Patrick's Day, Burn's Night)

Cons: Not so good for ones that are not the same date every year (i.e. Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day)
