Flawed shopping cart coupon code - Legal question

So with some pretty basic prodding of a shopping cart source code I found a .JS file with a list of all the coupon codes encoded as b64 md5 hashes.

Above each was a description - and from the description I could guess a coupon code.

Have I done anything illegal? Would it be illegal if I ordered using such a discount code? Would the retailer have to fulfil the order?

Thanks in advance

Ask the support of the shopping cart provider if they have some coupons and if your one matches with the ones they suggest use it.

I think you've misunderstood my post - I've guessed a coupon code which would give me a large discount (anything up to 99%) - is it legal to use it? does the retailer have to fulfil the order?
