expired Book Depository 10% off + Free Shipping

Book Depository 10% off + Free ShippingAffiliate

Book Depository is offering 10% off all books again! All you need to do is 'Refer a Friend' and both you and your friend will get a 10% off voucher. I sent the referral to my alternate email addresses and the code seems to apply fine to my account which has a different email address - it doesn't seem to be linked to the recipient's email address.

Note it takes a while for the code to arrive. I requested mine around 11 am yesterday and didn't receive the voucher until 3 am this morning.

Edit: Just to clarify, Book Depository has standard free shipping to Australia. No code required.

===

Full terms and conditions:

You will receive one 10% voucher for referring friends and then additional vouchers for those who buy, only one voucher can be received for introductions in the first instance.
Once a referred friend has bought from us we will send you a 10% voucher that can be used against your next purchase on bookdepository.co.uk or bookdepository.com. Simply follow the instructions on the email and click on the link in the email, the page it takes you to will have your discount code on it. If you don't go via this route, you will not see a redemption box in the basket.
Only one voucher may be redeemed per purchase, per person.
Offer expires Wednesday 26th February 2014 and all vouchers will expire noon GMT on this day.
Vouchers are non transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash.
Customers can refer as many friends as they like during the period, we will however monitor for unusually high use.
Vouchers cannot be retrospectively applied.
The Book Depository Limited retains the right to end this promotion without notice.
Email addresses will not be retained other than for the processing of the offer.

    LOL @ the free shipping as part of the sale since it's always been there.

    Mind you it's never been 'free' just shipping included. Great for single buys but if you're buying a heap I've found Amazon comes in slightly cheaper after about 5 or so books.

      I thought I put it in the title in case people aren't aware. XD

      I've always found Amazon hard to use. Often items don't ship to Australia, and when they do, by the time you factor in shipping and currency conversion it becomes far less competitive - Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong!

      Oh, and Booko is useful for price comparisons: http://booko.com.au

        For books, Amazon generally will post. For a single item, price + postage (they convert for you)will work out more expensive.

        But if you order a lot of stuff at once the combined postage works out a bit cheaper.

          I think Amazon prices for shipping books are $5.50 US for the entire order and $5.50 per book. Generally smaller competitors are cheaper for light book items but Amazon is cheaper for heavy items like dictionaries, textbooks, 1 volume encyclopaedias, etc. Amazon US also has the largest range of books in English.

          Also remember, the evil Amazon jugganaut own Abe and Book Depos now :( So much for useless anti-monopoly laws.

    They do this every second month or so.

      They used to but honestly I haven't seen this in a long time. I thought they'd stopped for good.

      Sadly, with the Aus $ declining all this does is basically make up for the decrease from over the last few weeks :-(

        10% off is about twice a year nowdays,

    Just in time for uni woo! English major FTW hahaha

  •  

    is the 10% off for the ENTIRE purchase?? As in can i order 50 books and get 10% off the lot?? Or just one book?

    •  

      It's usually the lot.

      • +24 votes

        10% off each book. so if you get 10 books that equates to 100% off.

        trust me, the math is solid.

          Confirmed by purchasing ten of these.

          Ask me how to make money by buying more than 10 books! The Book Depository hates me because of this ancient secret!

        •  

          ROTFLMAO!

          I couldn't decide to whether to give you a neg for being a smartass or a + for humour. (I'm kind of a smartass myself so I gave you a +)

          Thanks goatus, I usually only remember 10% of what I read, so this way I'll remember everything!

      It's for the entire purchase. My order was $163 and 10% was taken off the total.

  •  

    Great deal!

  •  

    i filled in the form 30 minutes ago but my wife and bosses still have not got the 10% coupon yet, does it take a while?

    • +1 vote

      As per OP: "Note it takes a while for the code to arrive. I requested mine around 11 am yesterday and didn't receive the voucher until 3 am this morning."

    •  

      Boss?

      •  

        Either he means his wife is his boss or he means he sent one to his wife and then did a little brown nosing at work.

    Coupon code never came.

    Anyone want to give me theirs?

  •  

    hmmmmmm
    I made a $200 order yesterday. Was about to cancel it and resubmit until I found the books I had bought had already gone up at least 10% (in one case 20%)……

    •  

      Ouch, that's bad! Same as bookworld the other day.

      So far the book I am keen on has not changed in price, it would seem not all books are affected.

      What I noticed though is that they still show different prices in different countries. When I go through a Canadian proxy things are much cheaper. Only problem: I really don't want to type my CC details into an unsecured line. Wish I had a prepaid card with sufficient credit…

      •  

        Is the Canadian proxy redirecting to something other than .com? The .com and .co.uk addresses have different prices for a lot of books, always worth changing the url to check.

        •  

          For the book I am looking for the difference between .com and .co.uk is less than 0.5%, but going to the .com site through the Canadian proxy takes off 10%.

        •  

          Thanks heaps! Will give that a try once I receive the 10% discount email. :-)

        •  

          Is this still working and shows difference in price?

  •  

    was looking at a book to buy through this deal

    BD normal price was $100 down to $54 del

    Same book on amazon is $30 + $18 del = $48 del

    I'm still waiting for the code! Its been 8 hours!

  •  

    Been 24 hours now. No code and page has disappeared.

    •  

      What the hell… why would they remove the page? I didn't receive my code either, and I'd been waiting for many months for this deal! :(

      •  

        Me either, looks like this one is a dud.

        •  

          Yep, same here. Maybe 'too many' people requested codes?

          P.S. they've been in decline ever since Amazon bought them.

        •  

          Ended up using the cookies hack to get 18% off :)

        •  

          Please explain?

    •  

      Yeah no code not sure what's going on

    •  

      How very strange! It said the promotion ran until late Feb so I see no reason why it was taken down.

      Did anyone manage to get the codes aside from myself?

      •  

        How did you find out about this promotion? Got an email from them or just stumbled over the page?

        •  

          I just happened to come across the page, and I only posted the deal after I received the code myself and put an order through successfully.

        •  

          They might have run into trouble with spammers - the form was openly accessible without captcha.

          If the site was abused by spammers that would explain the delay between entering the details and receiving the code. Perhaps they will be back once they fixed that issue? There's hoping…

    Wordery still has 10% off a couple more days:

    To receive the discount, simply enter the code JAN14 during checkout and 10% will automatically be deducted from your total. And don't forget we offer FREE worldwide shipping.

    But as always start your search on Booko.com.au or ISBNs.net to easily find the best prices.

    •  

      Thanks heaps for this.

  •  

    Hmmm, never got a 10% off voucher and looks like they've take it down?
    Doh!
    Oh well…

  •  

    May still be working…perhaps just wait.

    Premature coupon ejaculation methinks.

    Customer service had this to say:

    I am afraid this coupon has not been activated yet, as soon as it is your friends will receive their e-mails, you will also receive your referral e-mail.

    Working, got my code within about 12h and applies fine. :) Thanks for heads up.

    Also for anyone who doesn't know, usual stuff, you can just change the address on your 'Redeem 10% off coupon' page from .co.uk to .com. Books I'm after are $2 cheaper on .com for me.. (Check booko.com.au)

    •  

      'Books I'm after are $2 cheaper on .com for me'

      Got to love the POMS! LOL! Everything is more expensive over there. I think they like it that way because it gives them more to whinge about. Although things are kind of heading the same way here :-(

      Don't get me wrong. I love the place and the people but it's sooo expensive there and British culture and identity is sort of being wiped out.

    •  

      I'm glad it worked! No idea why the page was taken down earlier but the deal has been marked expired.. oh well, at least some of you got the deal =)

      •  

        What on earth, will have to report that it's unexpired again…sigh..

  • +1 vote

    Just tried and got my coupon within 1/2 hour. Maybe the earlier delays were due to a glitch that's been fixed now. Shame it's labelled expired.

    Big thanks to OP for posting!

  • +1 vote

    I never received my original coupon code from earlier in the week but today when I re-submitted I received it within a minute or two.

    And going to the .com site a couple books I was interested in were the same exact price, some were a few cents less, some were a couple bucks less and one was seven dollars less!

    Also, note that if you request the code from .co.uk it won't work on .com unless you edit the 'activation link' by changing .co.uk to .com and then leaving all the gobledegook that comes after .com the same. (Hope this makes sense).

    And hope this info helps someone.

    Got my coupon codes too after initially failing to get it the first time. Yay! :)

  •  

    Still waiting for mine

    •  

      I never got the one I originally requested but when I re-requested it I received it within a few seconds.

      I'd recommend resubmiting and also check you spam folder.
      DOn't forget to do this through .com not .co.uk
