Anyone experience the same or know what causes this?
Perhaps something to do with this?

What titles are you seeing this pricing issue? I want to double check.

Don't know if it's region related. Some of them are:
Zero Point
Prador Moon
Theories of Flight
Legend of Eli Monpress
The Spirit War etc.

Also I'm logged in, so that shouldn't cause a problem.

I see Kobo is offering pre-orders now. Wish codes worked on those (non-agency stuff of course).

I do the same, in reverse. I've only had one that could not be gifted (but it opened fine in my ADE, anyway).

Plus, it doesn't even matter if you are logged in or not. I half suspect the search shows you canadian prices, then the book page another, or something similar.

And often the Buy page has another price, entirely.

At this stage I have no idea what's going on pricing wise. The majority of titles have this issue, though some don't. Wanted to go on a buying spree, but weary now since I might be paying more than I actually should.

We have a consumer law in Australia that says that where 2 prices are displayed, the lower price can only be charged.

Kobo needs to take note and where contacted by an Australian member/purchaser only sell at the lower advertised price no matter where that is showing on their website.


NB: I have yet to come across this issue myself.

Is there any reason to pre-order a digital book? There's a limitless supply!

sometimes the free price is a mistake (but honored if ordered while it is mis-marked).

Sometimes, the book increases in price on delivery day or just before - the free price was a promo period, to bump up sales on the release date.

Yep, I just tested vouchercodes40 here in Aus too - and it's 1450 hours, Friday 1 Feb.

But - sure as eggs it'll turn midnight sooner or later wherever it's programmed.

Yep VoucherCodes40 still works right now, Europe 12:13 midday... Should be way passed most midnights now no?

Also, a new 30% off code FebSave30, ends 4th Feb.
HOWEVER, it suggests it is only for one book in particular: Though Not Dead by Dana Stabenow
