# Is this coupon possible? Get fixed amount off for each 5 items from a specific category

I want my customer to have a coupon code where they get \$4 off for every 5 items they buy from a certain category. For example:

0-4 items from cat A = no discount

5-9 items from cat A = -\$4

10-14 items from cat A = -\$8

15-19 items from cat A = -\$12

etc..

I've been trying all different condition and action rules for over an hour now and can't get this logic right, which I thought should be pretty straight forward.

• It seems that it is very difficult to do as a coupon.Even the addtional extensions can't help in this situation. Nov 7, 2013 at 9:26

I've used this extension and it has a ton of additional coupon code configurations: http://amasty.com/special-promotions-pro.html

One of them is a fixed discount for product set. You then set the categories it applies to and the discount step (in this case 4). Place the discount amount as 4 and this should complete your coupon.

You can do this logic, but you should create one rule for every group of quantity. Suppose:
One rule for `5-9 items from cat A = -\$4`
Another rule for `10-14 items from cat A = -\$8`
...
Another rule for `50-54 items from cat A = -\$20`
...etc

But every rule have same structure changing only numbers. See screenshot:

And you should create same rule for another range of quantity.

• Thanks for the response, but I should of stated that my client wants to use a single coupon code to achieve this, not multiple coupons. Nov 7, 2013 at 21:04
