What is the difference between a Giveaway Code and an Authors Direct Promotion?

Giveaway Codes and Authors Direct Promotional codes both lead users into the same app and listening experience using the same email address/account, but there are a few important differences.
  1. Giveaway Codes are unique, one-time use codes that tie to only one audiobook.  Authors Direct promotions are not unique, can be set to discounted prices instead of fully-free, and are designed to be used over and over again.
  2. Giveaway Codes are redeemed at https://authors-direct.com/redeem/, while Authors Direct promotional codes are redeemed at your Authors Direct store (which will start with "https://shop.authors-direct.com/")
