Is there a way to crete a one off discount code?

For example if someone enters a discount code it then becomes used/not valid

I would imagine this would need to be database driven

yes, the coupon would need be stored in a database.

it would be pretty similar to the coupon code system in the tutorials section where you have form input to enter the coupon code and it gets saved to a session.

the differences would be:
-add a coupon code table to the database to store available coupon codes. have a column for used, set the default value to 0
-when the coupon form submits, use a recordset to lookup the coupon code and add a condition to the recordset to only return if the used column is 0
-in the set session value behavior to save the coupon code to a session, use the recordset not empty trigger
-on order completion, update the coupon table to set the used column to 1 for the coupon that was used.
