Passive Guy just discovered Amazon’s book coupons page.
It looks like O’Reilly loves it.
Have any PV visitors used it?
There are 13 book coupons across all of Amazon?
Considering I’ve never seen anyone say how to get there/how to apply one to one’s book, but lots of people wish they could have a coupon for their books, I’m surprised there are even 13.
Most of them O’Reilly’s.
I’m trying to figure out if indie authors can access the coupons. If anybody finds an answer to that question, let me know.
That would be cool.
I’ve used Amazon coupons on non-book products (the offer shows up on the product page) but never saw any on a book page I’m visiting. The coupons I’ve used have been small — maybe $.25-$.50.
I didn’t know you can go to one page to see all the coupons that are being offered. Thanks, PG.
You’re welcome, Patricia.
Amazon Coupons [or rather Promotional Codes] are something I’ve been looking for without success. Definitely an interest there .. thought maybe I was the only author until now.
According to Amazon Author Central (I just got off the phone with one of their reps), Amazon has a team that handles discount promotions internally. They pick ’em. No way to generate them on our end.
Thanks for the info, Gerard.
I wish we could do our own coupons on Amazon. Can you imagine listing your book for $12.99 and then having a $10.00 off coupon? I’d bet money you’d sell like crazy (perceived value and all).
Very tempting, Sariah.
Thanks to all the commenters who answered all the questions I had when I read this post. Saved me tons of research!
