Flat Rate shipping coupon code

Version 9.5

Is there a way to create a promotion code to set a shipping rate to a set amount?

I want to offer a promotion to have people get $5 shipping on ground orders if they enter the promotion code.

I see a discounted shipping option but don't see a way to set it to a specific amount.

There's no way to do that if you don't have fixed-rate shipping methods, no.  Promotions give an amount/percent off of the rate the cart otherwise calculates for shipping, they can't set a specific price.

I do have fixed rate shipping methods but they are tiered according to how much you spend.

.99 - $50 gets charged one rate

$51 - $100 gets charged another rate.

Can I give a discount per tier?
Only by creating a separate promo for each tier
