Definition of a Source Code: an alpha-numeric string
used during checkout at a merchant web site designed to save the consumer money
on the order being placed. You may also hear these being referred to as "promo
source codes" or "source promo codes."
NOTE: there are other
definitions for Source Code, which include an alphanumeric string used to decode

do I find Source Codes? At an online shopping portal like ShoppersResource.com.
