Promotions Excluding Categories?

Hello all!

I am attempting to setup a cart promotion for 10% off of the customer’s first order but I want to not discount products in a few specific categories. The products that I do not want to discount are in secondary categories of the categories I want to exclude.

So far, for the conditions I have setup:

  • Once per customer: Yes
  • Categories:

    — Not In

    ----- Sale

    ----- Second Category to Exclude

    For the bonus, I have:
  • Order discount: by percent of the original price: 10

    The problem is anything in the cart is discounted by 10%. Can I not exclude items in specific categories?
