There are many sites that list coupon codes for The Darkroom, but they will not work.
We know there is a coupon field on our checkout page and that many of our customers see this and then search for “The Darkroom coupon codes, discount codes and promo codes. There are many “deal sites” that list fake coupon codes for The Darkroom and other companies as part of a bigger marketing ploy. Our coupon code field is used for very specific scenarios and The Darkroom has the policy to focus on aggressive pricing and value. Our approach is honest pricing and not to inflate the price and create coupons and marketing promotions to discount that inflated price.
Deal sites with coupon codes for The Darkroom are fake, so please don’t get frustrated by them. You are getting our best price.
