Discount codes for a specific number of nights
I'd like to see the ability to create discount codes that are only valid for reservations of a specific number of nights. So if we wanted to offer a special of a "3rd night free", we could create a discount code that could do this.

it will be great to be able to modify the promo amount in a transaction. when the client made the reservation it is not possible to modify or cancell the promo

More robust discount code options. For example:
- free night(s) with certain number of nights booked
- bounce back discount code good for a period of time - only for someone who just booked and specific to their email, for a period of time from their booking (e.g., 1 month from booking date), vs a generic period of time in the system (expires at end of month). This should work with the email triggers so that it's a variable that can be input.

Discount code -- when a guest contacts me directly to request a booking, I would like to be able to offer a discount immediately when I generate a booking request in the platform. I want to input it in the lead form and send an email with the discount already applied.
I don't want to force the guest to go to the website and enter a code in order for a discount to apply properly to the rents and not the post-tax costs. First, they might not do it correctly, and second, they might reconsider prior to payment. I want to reduce the booking process to the minimum steps necessary for them to commit.
Ideally, it works like this:
I open the calendar to check availability. I click on a few days for a listing, and Hostfully opens a pop-up with the "Add Lead" form. It shows the charges for those dates, as well as taxes, and gives me the option to "Add Line Item". If I use this option to discount the cost, it's deducted from the bottom line, which is AFTER taxes. I'd like to discount the rent cost, and then have the appropriate amount of tax applied. Instead, there could be an option to "Add pre-tax discount" that is either a percentage or dollar amount. Then I can proceed to add client info and click "Save and open mailer" to send the request to book. In the end, a client only has to open the email and click "Book" to proceed.

Hi Adam! Thank you for your idea. We have received it and our team will consider adding it next time we work to improve our product.
I often have a bonus night offer that I send to my email list, which might be 4th night free or 7th night free, but it doesn't really work to do this on Hostfully (or any of the channels?). Love JohnG's idea!
When setting up code, have an option for days of the week all is the default. Have an option for x nights = lowest night free.
These are the most shared ads I see on the internet, and I get from properties.
Book X nights mid-week and get a free night or an % discount
