On the top of a lot of book pages if you are eligible it will show something that says like "Get this book plus 2 others for free", sign up for the trial and it gives you a promo credit instantly. And it works for up to $50 for free.

 

Posted it in gaming deals since it can apply towards Strategy Guides and Artbooks as well (Which can be quite fucking pricy), if you are eligible the offer should show up on this page, or the Horizon Zero Dawn Artbook page

 

https://www.amazon.c...Art of Splatoon

 

Used mine already on the Megaman Tribute book

At first I read this as "Free Soft/Hardcore book from Amazon".

 

I was like, hot damn!

 

This is still cool though. ^__^

Anyone know how long the credit lasts? It won't apply for a preorder of the Super Mario Odyssey collector's guide, but I'm wondering if I can wait until it officially comes out and then use it towards purchasing it

No idea unless its hidden somewhere in the fine print, didn't even notice the maximum price value until someone on another forum pointed it out right before I used it on a $25 book

Damn, just spent like $200 on Image Hardcovers. Oh well, I'm sure I can find something to spend this on.

 

Why is it I'm more anxious and indecisive on what to spend free money on than I am with my actual real money?

By the way, it works for items that cost over $50. I used it on the Zelda Breath of the Wild Deluxe guide, and it brought it from $54.xx to $0.00

I haven't tried it yet, but on different artbooks I've been seeing this link pop up. It might stack and you can get two free books, though it might be Kindle only. I don't know.

No idea lol, I spent a good 30 minutes myself deciding when I knew the obvious choice would be one of the more expensive options

Just snagged a 54.99 book for free, might be worth checking other high value books as well if you're interested in that.

Got Skyrim SE guide for free. 38 bucks absolutely free. I checked the 54 dollar deluxe zelda guide and it also worked on that, but decided to go for skyrim since my gf just got it. Immediately canceled the audible membership. It almost feels like stealing....

I tried it on the huge Udon Art of Capcom book that costs like $62 and it didnt work so im guessing somewhere between $55-60 is the cutoff price

Interesting, I didn't see it in my email cause all I got was a confirmation email about my free trial and that's it
