imATHLETE gives you full control, 24/7, to create and manage your discount codes.
— Code: enter a name of the code or leave blank and we’ll create one. Codes must be unique. You can do this by including the year or other features (e.g. Awesome5k2015)
— Description: Type anything that will help you remember the reason for the code.
— Type: see What are the different types of discount/coupon codes?
— Limit Code: indicate the number of times the code should be able to be used.
— Dollar Amount or Percentage: hopefully self-explanatory
— Start / Expiration Dates: the code can only be used within these dates. Leave blank to start today and not have an end date. The discount code will be valid beginning at 12:00 AM on the start date selected and will expire on 11:59 PM on the expiration date selected.
— Event Listing: the discount code will only work for the event(s) or classes selected.
Using a class-specific discount code is a great way to make sure a discount can only be applied to certain registration classes within your event. They come in pretty handy when you're looking to do something like encourage more folks to sign up for the 10k.

4. Click Save, and you're all set!
Class-specific discount codes can only be set up with the Fixed Amount code type. This means the discount must be a fixed dollar amount or percentage off the registration fee for the eligible class.
Fixed amount discounts can be applied per eligible item in the cart. For example, let’s say you set up a code with a limit of 5 uses that gives $10 off of a 10k registration. When I sign up both myself and my friend for the 10k and I enter the code, my cart will show $20 off ($10 for each instance of the event). If we used the same scenario, but the code was limited to one use, I would just see a $10 discount.
Want to modify the dates your discount code is valid? Change the number of times it can be used? Edit the events or registration classes it can be used with? Well, you're in the right spot. Editing a discount code is a easy as one, two, three. Probably easier, actually.
Unfortunately, we cannot import discount codes into your account. We can, however, bulk-generate unique codes and then send them to you. To request that we bulk-generate codes for you, you can contact your CSM or firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll help get you set up with a list of unique discount codes.
In cases where you need a large number of discount codes for a deals site, we can bulk-generate discount codes for you. Keep in mind, if the discount code doesn't exist in your imATHLETE account, it won't work if an athlete tries to use it during online race registration for your event.
Information We Need From You To Generate Codes
There Are NO Bulk Edits
Once the codes are created, they cannot be bulk-edited, so you'll want to be sure all information is correct when you submit this to us unless you really enjoy manually editing hundred or thousands of discount codes. The good news is that we can cancel out an entire batch, so we can always cancel a batch and generate a new batch of codes with different information if you need.
