Coupons to assign
- Discount vouchers. In this field, you must enter the list of codes for the discount coupons, either separated by commas or one per line. Each participant will get this code on their coupon. You have a maximum of 2,000 codes to give away for free.
- Repeat discount vouchers. With this option, you will give out the same coupon several times. If you activate this option, once the codes have been distributed, they will be distributed again. So there will be participants with the same code. If you do not activate this option, once they are distributed, they will not be given out anymore.
Coupon design and preview options
- Attach the coupon to the email after participating. If you configure the sending of emails to users after participating or after winning an Instant Win, the emails will contain a PDF/JPG attachment with the coupon, which can be downloaded.

3.3.1. Set up the code that the participants will receive.
You can give out the same code, numeric or alphanumeric. Decide what type of code or coupon you want to distribute to all your participants and the message that will be shown to them when they participate in the campaign.
Enter the code and activate code repetition.

Check the option 'to all participants'.
Keep in mind that, in Instant Win campaigns, it is possible to distribute discount codes in addition to the Instant Win prize distribution. In this way, regardless of the prize (or non-prize) received by a participant on the final screen, all participants will receive a discount code from the file previously uploaded to the platform.
If you want to set up an Instant Win campaign with code/coupon distribution, read the tutorial 'How to create an Instant Win campaign with instant winners'.
3.3.3. Include instructions for participants.
So those users have no doubts about how to use their discount coupon, you have a field, in which you can include text, image, or video, to explain how to use it, where, and what is the deadline for its use.
3.3.4. Customize the message for users who receive the code.
To include a personalized message with the discount code or coupon, which will be shown to the participants, go to the 'Final Screen' section.
If you only want to include an image on that final screen, in the 'Content' tab of the 'Final Screen' section, check the 'Display an image in the final screen' option and upload your image. If you want to show a text, enable the option 'Display this default final screen to participants'. This will only be displayed to participants who are not shown a personalized screen by points (gamification and points quiz), category (personality quiz) or Instant Win.
You can use this field to upload the image of your discount coupon (common for all users), which the participant can then save or print to make use of it.
Below you can see an example of how the final screen is displayed, with the message and the code, after the user completes the registration form.
3.4. Give different codes to the participants.

In the 'Coupons', you can enter up to 2,000 to give out to participants. The code can be numerical or alphanumeric. You must enter them one by one, separated by commas or one on each line, in the field 'Discount vouchers'.

In the 'Final Screen' section, enable the option '' and click on 'Individual final screen management'. set up and create the different result screens with the different codes, which you will distribute according to these premises:
- If the participants have marked a certain category of answers
- If the participants have obtained a certain score.
- If the participants already have certain codes in their possession and want to validate them.
Click on 'Manage individual final screens' and then on 'Add new screen'. Configure each screen, setting the category, score or code that the participants will have to obtain or enter (in case of validation and codes), in order to be shown one or another final screen.
- In a point-based quiz or gamification: the minimum and maximum score that the participant must obtain to see that screen. For example, a result screen for those who score from 0 to 4 points, another for 5-8 points, and a final screen for 9-10 points.
- In a quiz with categories: the category that the participant had to mark the most to see that screen. For example, in a personality quiz with four answer choices per question, there will be four categories: A, B, C and D.
- In a campaign with a validation code: the code that the participant had to enter to see that screen.
You should also customize the design that each of these screens will have. You can include text, images or HTML.
