In that vein ... this is probably a "dumb" question.  I feel like I should know the answer to this one - but I've been a bit distracted lately between the full time day job and the full time author promotion FB page ...

Two full time efforts does not leave much time left for logical rational brain cell development.  :D

Anyway ... here is the question:

I recently was successful in getting Amazon to price match Volume One of my Summer's Journey series to "perma-free."

IF I make any changes to the content (fix a typo, add in a few links at the end, etc.) ... does that invalidate in any fashion the pricing - where I would have to start over with the price-matching back to FREE ... etc.??

I would think that logically it *should not* have anything to do with it ... but logic does not always apply I have found.

Thank you for any feedback.

Summer

I don't know the answer to your question, and I was wondering the same thing, so I am looking forward to the answer.  But I have a related question.  How long did it take to get Amazon to price match?  I'm still waiting for a price match myself.

Some say yes. Some say no. I've seen it go back to paid when a category was changed.

I've fixed typos in the listing, as well as uploaded a new version of the book and my price did not change.

Brenda,

It took quite awhile and I had to rally a bunch of readers to get them to report the lower price to Amazon. Even then it took probably a month.

Thanks L.T. ... based on that - I'll go ahead and risk it. ;D

Oh my Gawd. I've been checking every half hour for four days and going out of my mind. I had no idea.

I recently uploaded a new file on my perma-free title, and it must've gone to paid for a very short time (I had one sale during it), but then it quickly went back to free. So I don't think you should have to go through the lengthy process of getting the file back to free. Amazon should do it for you. :)

I've tweaked/re-uploaded my free title a couple of times since it got price matched, and I haven't had any issues with it going back to being paid. :)

UPDATE:  Changes made without a problem.  Did not affect my perma-free status.  Thank you all for your input and feedback!!
