3rd party discount coupons for our paid users?

Quick question: does CBsubs / CB actions have some built in infrastructure for granting discount codes to our paid users? We want to be able to 'gift' them special discount codes redeemable on other sites, when they purchase a paid subscription on our site...

Can't you just use the cbsubs email when a subscription is made to send them appropriate email message with third party coupons?

You could create a promotions page where you place generic affiliate coupons. You'd then protect it using CBSubs Content so only subscribers can access the page or inline protect the coupon codes using CBSubs system plugin content.prepare substitutions (see description of CBSubs system plugin in Extensions > Plugins for usage information). This should help avoid needing to make coupons per person (which tends to get extremely bulky in your database) and is entirely automated and self managed after initial create as well as easy to add/remove promotions to the page with minimal work.
