The usual, you know what to do. It might be summer solstice for them, but any discount is good right?
So annoyed, I just ordered two books from them yesterday.
Email them and ask for a partial refund - they are actually pretty good. Worked for me ages ago.
I love that this is pretty much always one of the first comments on any BD bargain.
I might take a shot :)
Sweet, cheers OP, just bought 50 Shades of Grey for the girlfriend :-)
Don't get why someone negged you :S oh well, here's one to balance it out. Thanks OP!
People on here can be odd sometimes… thanks for the balance :-)
Not the one that did the neg but I've read a small part of that book, absolute filth.
I find it amazing that it can be sold to people of any age with the language and things that are portrayed.
In my opinion poorly written and is the equivalent to reading a porn magazine (obviously minus the pictures).
I'm not a prude and don't care what other people are in to but to think that a ~13 year old girl could walk in to a shop after hearing about this book on Facebook and buy it really offends me.
Sorry about the rant.
No worries, everyone is entitled to their own opinion :-). I've never read it so I wouldn't know the specifics, but I've heard it's pretty raunchy. Different folks different strokes I guess.
I agree, I don't think it's suitable reading for 12 year old girls. Bits I have read are just off. Nast. As a piece of writing, it's tragic.
Whatever floats your boat, but I won't be buying it. It's kind of got to the point that reading it in public makes you a bit of a joke too.
Did you know '50 Shades' started out as Twilight fan fiction?
Yup, but the girlfriend is interested so shrug it cost me about $7.50, and I don't care much about the quality as I won't be reading it.
you should have gotten her the audiobook read by Gilbert Gottfried
You hoping she'll get into BDSM? :p
Nicely done encouraging it!
Ha, she's already curious mate ;-)
Sweet, cheers OP, just bought American Psycho for the girlfriend :-)
Works for .com, just change the url to .com.
EDIT: that said, the exchange rates atm seem to be best for AUD, and the two sites are only 1c off for my test cart for CAD, NZD and SGD.
yeah just ordered 2 books this arvo (doh!) but the AUD price was much better then UK/US->AUD exchange rate. ($84 vs $86)
weirdly enough one book I order was $au25 from Oz IP addr or £25 from UK IP addr
I just tried with .com as they had some books UK didn't.
Nowhere to enter code, and the navigation at the top tricked me into clicking "next" when I was already at the final purchase (it said the next step was "confirm" - nope you already paid!). They got their sale and I got no discount :(
Emailing them to see of they won't fix it…
You have to use the link supplied by the OP or below by tchi6 - if you go to the website normally, there's nowhere to input the code.
(I emailed them after and they still fixed it though, great service).
Nice, works on pre-orders as well
The sales always do. :) It's great to have surprise preorders arriving but I've been careless and double-ordered. XD
By the way, I think they remembered us down under! Not only a summer solstice sale, from the logo? ^^
bought the new Brickmaster for my son, it is much better priced than Amazon.co.uk, as they no longer has the free shipping.
Thanks! Nice timing.
I just received an email that one of the books in my wishlist had a price drop.
perfect timing, i was just looking at getting something… :)
Recently I put some out of stock titles down and asked book depository to inform me when they have it back In stock. A while later, I received emails to let me know the books are not going to be in stock but for my trouble they gave me 10% off once off discount codes. I did order 7 books using the codes.
Do we pay for pre orders right away or is the money taken when its shipped. want to get a book that's due in October but price may drop between now and then
You pay when you order - so if you order now, you pay now.
I had the opposite problem. Pre-ordered one of Terry Pratchett's new books last year and they didn't bill me, but the Aussie Dollar was high and I was worried it was going to go down so I e-mailed them and asked if I could be billed ahead of time, and they processed it for me.
If it's a new book, why do you think the price will go down before launch?
great, just about to buy a $40 book earlier today.. glad I waited.
Yay got a few more volumes for my One Piece collections. Thanks OP
This is the .com link in case someone's found a book cheaper there, which I have done. Looks like i will be buying from both .com and .co.uk. I've found differences of about $4 on one of the books I'm after
Perfect timing, I was about to stop delaying buying my Uni books, as I had been hoping for a 10% discount on Book Depository to appear.
Fantastic-50 Shades of Grey-$6.95 Cheap!
Bah all the books i really want are about 6 months or more from release :(.
Can you buy PDF formats for these books from them too?
i saw free e-books on their website but cant find if i can buy other regular books in PDF format.
I have bought a few ebooks from BD in the past but I had an email from them a few weeks back saying that they would stop selling ebooks fom 1st July 2012.
The 10% discount works on both the .co.uk and .com websites.
