Jack from Better World Books just stopped by. (In a comment. I’d be concerned if he came by my house, though given how many times I’ve ordered from BWB, he could find out where I live by dropping an e-mail to the shipping department.)
He gave us a coupon!
It’s good until April 22.
I will, of course, be testing this out personally. After all, I couldn’t dream of letting my faithful blog readers go ahead and use a coupon without being absolutely sure that it works. In fact, I’d probably better test it out multiple times.
ETA: yep, I just tested it and it works! (I ordered Michaela Roessner’s Vanishing Point, Bruce Feiler’s Learning to Bow, and a 19th-century Swedish novel. My reading is nothing if not eclectic.)
Please drop me a comment if you use the coupon – I’d love to know whether it’s just me…. For those who are wondering where to use the coupon: it’s the final page of the process, after you’ve confirmed which books you want and how much they cost. When you get to the payment page, there’s a place to put a coupon code. Put the code in and push enter (or whatever it is) and the page will reload with the discount showing and the price re-calculated. Note that the discount doesn’t cover shipping costs [though it’s free shipping in the USA, anyway].
And in case you were wondering: this isn’t a kickback/affiliate-type program. I don’t get a penny from the link or from you using the coupon. It’s just them being nice to my readers. And, um, me!
