It's a US case, so we need our own, it seems. See this Globe and Mail article about similar suits filed in Canada: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/techn...rticle4101004/

I suppose the publishers could decide to end Agency pricing in Canada without a legal order to do so. You never know...

For those of you who shop at Kobo [Canada here], you may want to keep an eye on prices. I've found in the last couple of days some books being cheaper at Amazon, AND alternatively GooglePlay AND Kobo. [specifically Penguin and Harper Collins]. There were a few different books I wanted and ended up buying at least 1 at each because prices were so much better. ie 1 book at Kobo was $8.99, at GooglePlay $3.99, 1 book was $3.99 at Amazon, and at Kobo $2.99 [+ let me use a coupon].

So if you know your prices, and/or are willing to spend a bit of time comparing prices, there are some great deals to be had.

I hope Kobo comes out with some new discounts this week, I'm running out and down to using 25% off now...

Is it 'cheating' to sign up (at Kobo) under two different email addresses? I use two email addresses and was hoping both would work at Kobo.

Hi, welcome to MBR! IIRC, you mean having 2 different accounts so you get twice the discount codes? I don't see how that would be a problem. The only thing is that currently the codes only work on sale or non-agency [price-set] books, here in Canada anyways. The only definitive way to tell is to click the buy button and see if it allows you to put in the code or if it gives you the dreaded 'the price is set by publisher' disclaimer, but usually the big publishers do not allow codes unless the book is already discounted.

Also, with 2 separate accounts, it will depend how you manage your library. I don't use the Kobo desktop etc, I use Calibre and only sideload my books.

Thanks Blue! I use Stanza on my Mac, so no problem with downloading from different accounts.

Wait, you can do that? Because I have about 4 or 5 different email addresses! But not 4 or 5 different credit cards unfortunately. I wonder if you need that. It's probably not a good idea though because if I had two 45% off coupons for 5 uses rather than only one use then I would end up spending a TON of money!

still no new discount codes...just 1 special *sigh*

From Kobo email:
Get Maggie Stiefvater's novel
for $3.99 - today only!
Pick up The Scorpio Races for $3.99, plus
check out her newest title Raven Boys.

You could use PayPal instead of a credit card if it will disallow multiple user accounts with the same credit card
