comment Do “promo codes” or “coupon codes” do more harm than good?
Seconded - I regularly recommend to clients that they use the promo box to build email lists.

comment Whats the best way to present interface ideas to stakeholders?
Glad you enjoyed it Khal :) It isn't always suitable for every client to get them in at the sketch stage, but when we do, getting their buy-in and understanding early on can often save a lot of heartache and effort further down the line! We will obviously have done our own internal reviews and iterations of the sketches before the client is walked through them. The mental notes cards always prove great talking points too and help give the client more confidence in the decisions being made.

comment When should hyperlinks be underlined?
Marielle's response is spot on. Basically all links should have an affordance for clickability - i.e. they should be distinct/different enough from normal text for the user to instantly identify them as links, and the visual cues to the user from the style used (e.g. different colour for visited/non-visited links and interactive style changes on mouseover) should also be consistent throughout your website or app. If you use this approach I would argue underlining is then not necessary - especially given the legibility reasons Marielle references (which is why I rarely use it)
