Unhappy Waterstones UK - Card Points on eBooks

Dear All,

Anyone else seen the tiny new notice on Waterstones.com. W.e.f. the 29th October no card points when buying ebooks.

Another company idea to discourage ebook sales. I'm becoming more and more discouraged by the way media companies respond to everything digital.

They can all see the way record companies closed their eyes and ears and yet there are so many new opportunities to sell eg back catalogues etc.

I'm going to email Waterstones to complain - can I ask you to do the same.

However I do not hold out much hope

Regards,

Kevan

This is almost certainly the result of agency pricing, which does not permit any form of discounting by the retailer. Don't blame Waterstones for it - it's not their fault.
