Kindle version of book purchased on Amazon
« on: October 25, 2017, 11:12:30 am »
I believe I can get a discount on the e-version of a book I've purchased on Amazon. Can anyone guide me through how?

Thanks

    Never heard of that or seen that.  Keenly interested in this.
    Its unlucky to be superstitious.

    Depends on the book. The program is called Kindle Matchbook and the way it works is, if the title is in the program and you buy the paper version, you can get the discounted kindle version.

    I am not sure, though, how to find out what books are in the program. When it was first release there was an announcement and a place through your account where you could check books you'd previously bought to see if there were discounted ebooks available.

    Took a little digging, but here's the page with information: Kindle MatchBook
    My Kindles
    Hermoine's Handbag (Voyage)
    Ed's (Voyage Refurb)
    Bedtime Reading (Oasis 9)
    Godric's Hollow (Basic 7)
    My Tardis (PW 10)

    Keep in mind that there are only 72,585 Matchbook eligible books (out of several million books.)

    Also, books get added and dropped from the list. At one point, I had about two dozen books on the list, now there are three. I think I had only four when the program first started. So if you see one you want, buy it right then.
