A countdown timer is beneficial for users who want to create a sense of urgency. The actual coupon code will not expire, however, seeing a clock count down urges them to make a purchase. This feature also offers the option to limit the time a user has the ability to opt-in to the overlay. This limits the number of users who sign up for a code that may have a higher discount.
