Why have a coupon expiry time advertised and then expire it sooner? It said on the site 11:59pm, I was trying to purchase a good half hour before that.

Poor form.

I'd have thought time zones had something to do with it if I weren't in the same damn city as Kobo HO.

Well, it's Kobo. They have this occasional tendency to make incomprehensible business-management decisions, much like any of the other stores.

But at least if you were wanting to use a particular coupon and couldn't due to premature expiry, generally another one of the same type will pop up eventually. Most of the time.

Suppose It's just as well, since I just found a better one on another site that worked perfectly.

save25kobo gets you 25% off books, supposedly unlimited use. I just did it 3x, which would lend weight to that statement.

I just wanted to buy my books, and I did better than I had originally expected to- 25% is certainly better than 20%. Can't complain.

Still, isn't it kind of nice to know it's still working? I wouldn't have expected it to. I was surprised to find it still up when more recent ones had already expired.

These coupons are great - I haven't bought a full price ebook from kobo for months - if ever! Pleased to know the save25kobo still works.

But I have a new "vow" - to stop buying ebooks until I have read the approx 20 I already have that are sitting in my "I'm Reading" list! I need to disable the "Buy now" button.

I used the latest code feb18ca20 this morning and bought two books. Then I got on the forum and started reading this thread. I just went back to kobo.com and tried save25kobo and it still works!

I've been using the 20% weekend code; it works fine. I just saw the note for the 25% off. Oh well. I do find I am buying the lion's share of my books from Kobo, not Amazon. Prices are generally similar but the discount code almost always leave things in favour of Kobo, even after tax. Amazon has a considerably larger selection of books I am looking for, and I really like the wifi management of my library with Kindle.

On balance, happy with both ... and I hope Kobo continues to offer % discounts as these just seem cleaner to me when browsing.

This was posted in the Deals section, thought it was worth bringing over here:

This offer is not valid in conjunction with any other offer or promotion and cannot be used to adjust amount paid on previous purchases. Discount code is valid for 30% off any select eBook purchases excluding Hachette Book Group and all respective subsidiary imprints. Promotional code must be entered at time of purchase to qualify for this discount. Discounts cannot be applied nor the discount value refunded once a purchase is complete. We reserve the right to change or end this offer at any time without notice.
If you change the "au" to "ca", it works in Canada. I suspect changing it to "us" would work in the States, too.
