Too bad they don't let you choose your own two ebooks. I only read science fiction and fantasy.

I bought a WiFi Kobo at Walmart Canada about one month ago, and they were advertising 3 free current books. There was no mention of this on the package, but when I logged onto the Kobo site it automatically downloaded the titles.

Unfortunately not here; I went back and checked the emails that chapters sends when you purchase them figuring that would be the logical place to include a code of some sort, to cut down on human error, but alas, not there. No biggie I guess...

Did you check for a coupon? I just bought a wi-fi kobo for a family Christmas present and a coupon for the books was also placed in the bag. The coupon has a code that you use to download the books.

will have to check tonight. I bought my wifes and it had a bag, but the one my wife picked up didn't have a bag, so there was nothing. We bought both of them at the same time, and both under my email address so it's possible they only gave one coupon and it's in the bag at home. we'll see.

Unfortunately I've run into the same problem with my Kobo purchase. I picked it up in store (in an attempt to continue supporting my local Chapters) but never did receive a coupon.

I've been in touch with Kobo support, and while being very friendly and quick to respond, they really haven't been able to help. My support ticket was then "elevated" to Level 2, two weeks ago and that was the last I heard of it.

I absolutely love my Kobo Wi-Fi, and am in no way soured because of this, but its just a bit disappointing. I was hoping to be reading Oryx and Crake by now. Hope it all gets sorted out soon.

I would return to the Chapters store with your receipt and indicate that you did not receive the two free book coupon. You are more likely to get a quick response than you will contacting Kobo support.

We've actually been running out of the coupons in majority of our in-store locations, my advice would be to return to a store and request for the coupon and have them take down your contact information and get you a coupon.

Currently there is no information as to if this promotion is being stopped due to the lack of Kobos in Chapters/Indigo stores, the demand has kept us from having enough Kobos to even likely last the Christmas shopping period.

My advice to would-be kobo buyers is to order it off the Kobo site if anything
