How do I exclude certain SKUs from Price Promotions? (Category Rules or Shopping Cart Rules)
I do have Amnesty Special Promotions Extension. I just have 3 items that are special order only and I want to excluded them from all promotions.


  • What's your version of Magento? There are bugs in certain 1.8 and 1.9 versions relating to this.

First, edit the SKU attribute:


Change the setting Used for Promo Conditions to YES.

Now, when you create a new promo rule, under CONDITIONS make sure you choose SKU. You can then click on is and change it to is not one of - from there you can add the SKUs you wish to exclude from the promo.

Apply the rule and you should be good to go (assuming you don't have other issues getting promos working properly).

  • I'm still having issues. I have: If an item is FOUND in the cart with ANY of these conditions true: SKU IS NOT 1338, 1340, 1341
