If you scroll down to below your order and underneath the shipping options, you should see a box that has "FYE Promo Code" inside it. Once you enter your code in that box, you can click the bright orange apply button on the right. This gives f.y.e time to validate your code and apply your discount. You can then click on an orange button at the bottom of the page to proceed to check out or select another button to keep shopping.

Trans World Entertainment created f.y.e as a specialty store that would sell entertainment merchandise and memorabilia, making it similar to stores like Fry's Electronics and Best Buy. It opened with just one shop in Connecticut in 1993 but added two shops in New York in the coming years. Trans World Entertainment acquired a series of defunct music and movie stores across the country like Coconuts and Record Town, which helped the chain spread into new markets. It later took over former storefronts used by the Media Play chain. Though f.y.e shut down more than 150 stores in the 2000s, it still has shops in nearly half the country, including along both coasts and in the Midwest. Even if you live right down the street from a store, you will likely find a larger selection of products online.
The f.y.e website features several category listings across the top of its home page that make it easy for you to find the exact merchandise that you want. The Listen section features categories like exclusives, pre-orders and top sellers. In the Watch area, you can shop according to format like Blu-Ray or DVD, but you can also look at new releases and the top selling products.
As an entertainment site, f.y.e. also sells all the tech gear and equipment that you might need at home. Shop for a new gaming console before inviting your friends over to hang out, and pick up all the wires and accessories you need to hook that console up to your television. You'll also find speakers that you can use as part of a surround sound system or to just take your regular movie watching experience to the next level.

You will then need to select the type of product you want to sell such as video game, CD, DVD or Blu-Ray. While older games and movies may only earn you a few dollars or less, the site pays top dollar for newer releases and out of print products. After entering all the products that you want to sell, the site lets you mail in your merchandise to get cash or store credit.
While some love the website for its movies, video games and albums, others love shopping the merchandise section of the site. That section features everything from tee shirts and toys to key chains and collectibles. The partnership the company has with Funko lets you shop for adorable vinyl figures of all your favorite characters.
Finding those figures is so popular that you'll even see videos online of shoppers scouring stores for new collectibles. In the Funko Pop Hunting at FYE video, you'll see some of the collectibles available in stores and pick up some tips for shopping online or off.
