Still getting the same problem. I've contacted their customer support and so far it has been escalated to Tier 2. Kobo recently launched their ereader over here and the site shows prices in our local currency now, so I'm not sure if that's causing some issues. It must definitely be something wrong with the site since I don't actually get redirected to Paypal to enter payment info.

I get that all the time after checking out with PayPal. I just go to my Library and the book is there waiting for me. So be careful you may end up paying more than once if you try again. Look in your Library first to see if it really did go through, almost every time for me it did.

I saw a documentary recently about Facebook.

Every day they have truck loads of servers delivered, wheeled into place and installed.

A wicked thought crossed my mind, I wondered how things would be if Kobo was running that operation.....?

Just saw this on epubdeals.com:

Promo Code: Save40UK
It states that there is a list of 50 books to choose from, but it works on any non-agency title. However it's a onetime-use code, whereas Bargainmoose40 is a multiple-time-use code. So if Bargainmoose40 stops working before Dec 4th you can use this Save40UK once for a 40% discount.

FYI, I tried unsuccessfully the other iterations with ca, us, row, ww. Save40UK stands alone.

I don't ever got to the point where I can actually enter my payment details so I can't see how they could charge anything.

Working with their support is an exercise in frustration. They ask 1 question, I reply. Hours later they come back with another question/request for screenshots. I reply and the cycle continues. Why can't they just ask everything once?

The latest is whether I tried using it without a promo code, but the screenshot I attached clearly shows that I didn't.

Just finished buying 7 books and Bargainmoose40 worked for 3 of them. I have no idea what the difference is between agency and non but it saved me some money and thats always good considering my poor impulse control. Thank you kindly for the codes.

The coupon code for 80% off on Cyber Monday works multiple times. The code is 80Cyber.
The other Cyber Monday discounts work only once. These codes work only with titles in the lists given for each discount category. See Synamon's post above for link.

Apparently the 80Cyber coupon works for all Open Road publications.

I'm having the same kinds of problems. I could use my credit card for a while, then I couldn't, and after a while I could again - until, after I purchased about five books, it stopped working again. In the meantime I used the PayPal/checking account option. Finally that stopped working, and now I can't make any purchase at all. What's more, books I have already purchased are not syncing to my desktop. It's quite frustrating!

Get a gift card - Kobo is a Canadian company and most US CC companies flag it as fraud either all the time or if used more than a couple of times a day or for large numbers of small transactions.
