I am trying to setup a discount for a "free dessert" promotion In my store. The promotion is... Sign up to my newsletter and get a free dessert on your first order over $50. I setup a dessert product and made it active that I intend to use as the promo. Name is "surprise dessert" - it is completely filled out and active in my store. Then I created a discount code "DESSERT50" with a Buy X Get Y condition as follows...
Minimum purchase of $50
Specific collections: Selected all of my collections, so that any product is eligible
Everything I assume is setup correctly. If someone knows the code "DESSERT50" which they'd get in an email after signing up for my newsletter during this promotion. They then come and place an order over $50 with any products... Insert code, it should add the surprise dessert and make it free.
When testing this it failed. I entered the discount code during checkout and it said that the products in my cart aren't eligible for the discount code.
