Add Limits to Deals

When you create a deal in the Campaign Center, you can specify how many times this deal can be applied to each member in general, and/or to each member within a specified time period. For example, give employees a deal that they can only use once per month.

Deal Limit vs Discount Limit

This limit relates to the deal in general (per member). You can also limit the number of times the discount can be applied per purchase. The discount limit is NOT reflected here. For example, you give members a deal that gives $2 off each dessert, for up to 1 dessert per purchase.

General Limit

You can specify a maximum number of times that the deal can apply per member:

Limit per Time Period

You can specify a maximum number of times that the deal can apply per member, within a specified time period. The time periods can be calendar periods or rolling periods (see table below).

Period Description
Hour Calendar hour, such as 3:00-3:59pm. For example, if the deal can be applied once per hour and the deal is applied for a member at 3:58pm, it can be applied again for this member at 4:00pm 
Day  Calendar day, such as Sunday 
Week  Calendar week, such as Monday-Sunday
Note: The definition of a calendar week also depends on the territory. For example, in Israel, the week is Sunday-Saturday.
Month  Calendar month, such as January 
Year  Calendar year, such as 2018 
Rolling Period  Rolling period. For example, if the deal can be applied once per day and the deal is applied for a member on Monday at 12pm, it cannot be applied for this member again until Tuesday at 12pm.

 

Limit & POS Integration

For POS’s that implemented API version 2.8 and earlier, the number of times that a deal was applied is estimated. A deal is counted as applied if it’s calculated for a member (GetMemberBenefits API call), and then a purchase is submitted for the same member (SubmitPurchase API call).
