25% Off 3-Day Coupon Code for Racketboy Store

I'm getting ready to wind down the Racketboy store and I've been lowering prices across the board. On top of that, I'm offering a 25% off coupon that is good until Wednesday, April 2

Coupon Code: RETRO25

Multiple reasons, really. The sources for my two previously big items (saturn chips, and Dreamcast VGA boxes) have dried up and made sales of related items drop a bit. I can get that newer model of VGA box, but the competition is more heated now that it's more common (and I think demand has cooled a bit too)

Having lower sales makes it much less cost-effective to maintain the Magento software (which is a beast).

I may re-boot the store later on with a slimmed-down lineup and setup, but I need to move a good chunk of what I still have.

Having some problems with the checkout :P.

First time I tried to go through the shipping wasn't added to the pay pal invoice. So I backed out and checked out again but it won't quote shipping now.

Yay, Magento/Paypal! Have you tried using Incognito mode/clearing cookies/using different browser?

Tried it out on both Firefox and Internet Explorer but no luck :P. Cleared my cache and cookies as well but no luck.

Did quote me shipping prices earlier before I got to paypal the first time but now it takes around a minute or two to load before saying shipping quotes are unavailable both in the shopping cart and in check out.

Will just try again in a few hours.

Ah man the store doesn't have any GCN S-Video cables anymore. Shucks :(
