EF / TheLocal Promo email useless?

I received an email from thelocal.com about 10% discount.
But, when I tried to use the promo code to book tickets to Asia, I got the same price when I book and leave the promo code blank.
Anybody tried? Bad rep for the local.


Here is the detail:
************************************************** *******************
Dear Reader,

Are you already planning your next holiday? With the exclusive Promo Code QRTFCH, selected members of The Local community in Switzerland can enjoy an exclusive discount of up to 10% per person on Qatar Airways flights to Australia, Asia, New Zealand, Middle East and Africa.

For example, fly to Bali from CHF 551, explore Sydney starting from CHF 813 or discover Tokyo starting from CHF 490. Groups of 3+ people can benefit from larger discounts.

These exclusive rates are available until 16th January for travel until 15th December 2017 by using the Promo Code QRTFCH before searching for a flight on Qatarairways.com.



Kind regards,
English Forum

************************************************

Ollie

That promo code is all over the net; it cost The Local nothing and as far as I can tell does nothing.

Qatar are in the middle of a sale. They had a flash sale yesterday to any city in Japan from Amsterdam or Brussels, for under €650 return in business class. It's worth checking their website daily, and pricing up potential journeys, until the sale ends.

I assume, the selected members are the ones who receive the email, no?
