Everyone should kept the answers for himself :)

For a 20% discount on any in-stock handheld laser or pointer:
The discount code is the wavelength of the first constructed optical laser in nanometers. (Accurate to one decimal place.)

For an even better 25% discount on any in-stock handheld laser or pointer:
The discount code is the distance, in parsecs, that a photon from that first laser would have travelled as of May 16 2010, if it had passed through a window at Hughes Laboratory on May 16 1960, went upwards into the sky, and had been travelling through space ever since. (Specify to 4 decimal places.)

Edit: If you think you have calculated the right number, you should try it out here

Damn...I can tell you who made it, when it was made, how it was made, and how it did what it did, and the BEGINNING wavelength, before alterations to the wavelength occur, but to the nearest decimal, I cannot...>.< But the second one, not gonna happen lol.

Would you please write out the process of getting 55% from 20, and 25%? :p
And I'm betting you can only use one.

If, you take off 25% and then are allowed to take off 20% of the remainder, in the end it is 40% off the first cost, but I too, do doubt they let one use both! -Glenn

Only one coupon code at a time, you get a message at the top of the screen "All discounts from previous code xxxxxxxxx have been removed and replaced by xxxxxxx" or something like that.

Do some research. They're pretty easy to figure out. Especially the second one.
Here's a clue. 3.26163626.

The first one is the same number as is the number of different arrangements (up to rotation and reflection) of 7 non-attacking rooks on a 7×7 chessboard...followed by the decimal value of the quantity sum of values before the decimal

The second is easier, but its harder to come up with a hint
