FREE MATCHBOOK OFFERS
Here is a great holiday gift idea: Buy the print edition to send as a gift and keep the Kindle edition for free.
Don’t you wish you could get a free copy of every book you sent as a gift? Well, here’s your chance to do just that.
How does it work?
Buy the print book first at Amazon. That’s right, at Amazon. Then get the Kindle edition for free. Also at Amazon.
You see, Amazon has a cool program called MatchBook, whereby authors or publishers can choose to make the Kindle edition free to customers who first purchase the print edition. (Order is important. Buy the print edition first.)
Many books at Amazon don’t participate in MatchBook, and many of those that do don’t come with a free MatchBook offer.
But all of the books in the Read Tuesday MatchBook catalog (on this page: https://readtuesday.com/matchbook) do have free MatchBook offers at Amazon. Read the instructions at the top of the Read Tuesday MatchBook catalog, which show you exactly how to take advantage of these free MatchBook offers at Amazon.
This is part of Read Tuesday, a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.
We also have Kindle sale prices, Smashwords discount codes, CreateSpace discount codes, and free print books to give away.
Some of the books are already on sale. Browse the catalogs (find the links below).
Are you an author? Sign-up is free, but submissions close Saturday, December 6. (Too late? There’s always 2015.)
