    Thank you! They approved mine and sent me the code but it says invalid when I try to use it. Maybe I should call them.

    • Jen

      I received the same response. Approved but invalid code.

      • Nic B

        Yep. Me too! How did you contact them? I emailed back to the same email that sent me the code but haven’t heard back.

    • Amanda

      Same for me.

    • Walkwright1

      The same thing happened to me.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Maybe wait a bit and try again. Here is what I found in the details – “There may be a 20 minute + delay to activate your code once it is sent.” I have added that detail to the post. Hoping this helps!

      • crystal j

        Thank you all. I contacted them and they sent me a new code that worked!!

  2. Heather

    This is great! Perfect time to grab one for school in the fall!

  3. Lexs00

    I emailed customer service because I was getting the same invalid code message. They sent me a new one and it worked fine! 😊

    • Heather

      I contacted them via chat and they were able to provide a new code for me!

      • Walkwright1

        Thanks Heather! I received a new code as well. This helps us out so much H2S! As always, TFS! ❤

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! Glad you could grab a new code! Thanks for the feedback!

    • Debbie

      How long did it take for customer service to get back to you?

    I’m not comfortable with entering my birth date

  5. Tina Davis

    Not for military dependents.

    • Heather

      We used my husbands info and ordered. So It technically is for AD, as it should be.

  6. Lisa

    Well not cool Jansport, if your going to offer something than make sure it works

    Mine was approved instantly and my code worked without issue. This is the first deal I’ve used for medical workers and the first time I’ve had to verify my ID. I’m curious how it actually knows?!?

    My 3 boys have had the same Jansport bookbags since they started school. The original Superbreak version, which was great for the lower grades. Now that they are in high school and soon moving off to college it is a great time to Expand into the Big Student Size. I used this deal to buy 3 Big Student Bookbags and a Hatchet Bag for myself (I like day hiking and going to coffee shops). Nothing wrong with the Jansport bags they have had for up to 11 years, just moving up in size. You cannot beat Jansport warranty. I haven’t had to use it but it’s nice knowing it’s there. I used a big student bag for nursing school for my crazy amount of oversized books, it was fantastic.

    I absolutely love this deal!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and thank you for your service right now!

  8. Linda

    What do you put for status

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Linda! Be sure to select the “status” option that is best for you. There will be a drop down tab of options you can scroll through. Hoping this helps!
