It worked on a Princeton University Press book, thank you. It rejected the purchase a few times, i quit and cleared the cache, and when I went to try again the book was in my library!

nov30us25 is also good, so maybe the other variants are, too.

Thanks wouldn't you know the book I bought wont download! Kobo needs to get it together!

I see there is no longer a ticket support it's via email now. Sent a email I don't expect too much to happen on the weekend. *sigh*

I'm up to 2nd tier support on "where is the vox I ordered" (three times, now) and 3rd tier on "why can't I access the My Account page?".

No actual solutions, though. I can at least access my library and download past books (and still see my credit balance, if I try to buy a book, but no other way).

Oh dear this doesn't give me much hope. I guess this will be my last purchase till they get things fixed. I miss the old Kobo.

Well, just to add to the tales of woe. I had a little bit left on a Kobo gift card, which I had bought for myself to avoid the multiple little transactions shutting off my credit card. (Aside: don't know why Kobo can't get a cart...)

I haven't been having much luck finding books to buy on Kobo these days - they are usually expensive compared to others, and the 20% - 35% discounts haven't been big enough to bring their books in line. But, I did find something to buy with the 35% coupon, and decided to use the last of my gift card together with my credit card, which used to let a single transaction go through, just not several in a row.

So now my credit card bounced even the SINGLE transaction, and in the process the $4.XX I had on my Kobo gift card also disappeared. I am now bookless, will have to call my credit card company to get my card turned back on, and get in touch with Kobo to try to get the balance on my gift card restored. I can only imagine trying to get this resolved - I suspect my $4.XX on the gift card is gone for good. Sigh!

At least I can buy the book elsewhere, even if a bit more expensive. I don't think I'm ever going back to Kobo, either, or at least not for a very long time, just like Blossom above.

I used the 35% coupon. Thanks.

FWIW, I've had 4 or more books that have been horribly formatted, something went wrong with the download, etc so have dealt with Kobo customer service multiple times. They are so slow, but each time I either received a refund or a corrected book. It often takens more than a month, but I just keep emailing them and eventually they do it. Their lack of customer service is one of the reasons I only shop there when they have coupon codes.

Oh my! I've used Gift Cards in the past and they worked like you said the amount comes out of the gift card first then the rest out of the credit card or paypal.

It seems since Kobo has been bought out the site has gone down hill. Hardly any new releases on time anymore. Selection seems to be dwindling, Prices are raised higher then anywhere else and site has glitches and issues that no one wants to fixed.

I miss the old Kobo. I've never had an issue with any other book store I've shop with but this is the 5th time something like this has happen. I purchase a book only to get an error when I try to download. I will say in the past I've had good success with their old ticket system.
