Example: "Spend 100$ and get 10$ off your next order". This wouldnt be added to their account as credit. It woudl be a coupon that is generated and then emailed to them for incentive to get them back to the site and place another order.
It seems like very simple functioanlity but i havent been able to find a reliable plugin for it.
You will have to create this as a custom ext. The easiest way to do this would be to create an observer that listens for completed orders that exceed the total you have listed. If the order exceeds that total then you can attach a coupon code to the order email.
We've got an extension, which makes the thing you want and even more - Coupone Code Generator.
It's coming out this week. So, in a few days you'll have a chance to try the demo.
The functionality description is here - http://ecommerce.aheadworks.com/magento-extensions/coupon-code-generator.html
Our Loyalty Program extension does a similar thing. The only difference is, the discount is applied automatically in the shopping cart - there is no need to enter the coupon. We'll be happy to answer any questions about this extension.
