So have they changed the deal of the day to only one book offered? I ask because the link from the other thread takes me to my browsing history, while your link offers the single book plus the student deals.

Apparently no Deal of the Day books were posted today - only the Student Deal.

It's hard to tell if the feature is dead or they screwed up the code on the page. You can't see the Student deal either, in firefox, but you can in IE. Third time they've done that in a week.

bizarre. I've tried it on several FF versions (different computers, different or no add-ons, no adblocker, etc) and yesterday's book showed up find, but once I refreshed after midnight PST, today's book didn't display. The future books show up, just not the current one. Same thing has happened several times now - but in IE8, it shows up fine.

No clue what they've done on the $2.99 deals. Those publishers got a raw deal, since no one can find the books.

I just came here to ask you if you had another link. I guess it's not just me...

As I said, that was the BOTK (books on the knob) list of books I found. No deals again today, I wonder if Amazon has abandoned the idea (too many sales, perhaps?) or will just have it every now and then?

I don't get a list today (Jan 5) either, either in Firefox or IE. I get the page which says "Deal of the Day on Kindle", but then the page just has suggestions based on my browsing history. Any one got any info about whether Amazon has abandoned this or has just goofed up the listings?

No one knows. Most Kindle support people didn't know it existed, apparently.

Maybe it was a one-week special, but the page is still there... just blank.

FWIW - when the Deal of the Day existed there was a link in the upper right of the Kindle Ebooks page - it vanished when the Deal of the Day vanished.

But, it wasn't there every time you loaded the screen. After someone mentioned it, I refreshed until I saw it. I had more than 20 different ads before I saw it once.
