    Hi Mary Eileen,
    I just logged on to ibxpress and couldn’t find the Indego promo code anywhere. Any tips? Thanks!

    I just found it – it was in the news section. I tried doing a few searches for it in a couple different search boxes, including Member Discounts, and it didn’t show up there though. That might be something to consider. Thanks anyway!

    I am not able to find the promo code. I tried to look for a news section but I did not see that either.
