I did 3 credits and one sale purchase and four free books. I got a $10 dollar credit not $20. So I think free books don't count.

I have the not-so-great all-in-one trilogy version from Amazon. I do have the Kindle / Audible edition of The Hobbit.

Looks like the loophole wasn't one. No credit showed up in hubby's account which "bought" free Whispersync for Voice audiobooks. My $20 showed up fine, but the Whispersync for Voice books I bought cost actual cash, plus I used some credits.

Seabiscuit is tempting me today.

I'm tempted by Grapes of Wrath and Slumdog, both sitting in my basket, currently.

What loophole? What $20?

Yeah none of the books appeal to me. I read Seabiscuit, have the book (hard back book) and the others are either at the library, or not interested in. Grapes of Wrath is depressing. Guess I will look again.

I just got a $20 credit for buying 8 books (my contract is up next month) so maybe they are trying to reel me back in. I have a hard time finding audible books lately that I like. I actually returned Sissy Spacek book. What was I thinking I would like it? Carol Burnett's book was the only good book (autobiography, biography, or memoirs) I have read.

Don't laugh, I used the credit for Gone with the Wind. How am I going to fit that on my SMPG5? I love the movie, read the book, the audible reader is really good :-)

Today's deal is a discount on some books by Neil Gaiman and some books in the Neil Gaiman Presents line.

Quote:
Today's Deal: 50% Off the Regular Price - Books by Neil Gaiman and Neil Gaiman Presents
By Neil Gaiman
Coraline - $6.97
The Graveyard Book - $11.96
Good Omens (with Terry Pratchett) - $15.96
American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production) - $3.95
Anansi Boys - $15.96
Fragile Things - $13.96
Stardust - $10.47
Neverwhere - $15.96

Neil Gaiman Presents...
The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break: A Novel by Steven Sherrill - $9.97
Swordspoint: A Melodrama of Manners by Ellen Kushner - $12.47
Anita by Keith Roberts - $9.97
The Land of Laughs by Jonathan Carroll - $9.97
Pavane by Keith Roberts - $9.97
Viriconium by M. John Harrison - $12.47
Light by M. John Harrison - $12.47
The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner - $12.47
The Drowning Girl by Caitlin R. Kiernan - $12.47
You Must Go and Win: Essays by Alina Simone - $9.97
The Adventures of Doctor Eszterhazy by Avram Davidson - $12.47
White Apples by Jonathan Carroll - $12.47
Jurgen by James Branch Cabell - $9.97
Figures of Earth: A Comedy of Appearances by James Branch Cabell - $9.97
The High Place by James Branch Cabell - $9.97

Nothing special in the discount department IMO, unless you were already interested in some of these maybe. I'm unsure if the one really good price, $3.95 for American Gods, is the price everyone will see or if I'm only seeing it because I have the Kindle version and it's the Whispersync discount.


I was hoping that with today being Pearl Harbor Day we might see a discount on some titles that cover that, but alas I guess not.

Yes, you are seeing the WfV companion price. The price that shows for me is $16.53.

Shame the discounts aren't much, I have a few of these on my wishlist.

Not on my screen, it says the Kindle book is $7.59 and the audiobook is $3.95. (The actual price for the linked Kindle book is $11.61, but I'm in Canada so the prices often don't correspond.)
Quote:
Whispersync for Voice

Listen to American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production), then pick up right where you left off with the Kindle book, available from Amazon.com for $7.59. Learn more

Get this Audiobook for the reduced price of $3.95, when you buy the Kindle edition first.

What price does American Gods show for you as the sale price for this Christmas deal?

I had a friend order 8 free Kindle/Audible combos. All of the Audible books had a regular price of $14.95 and higher, so the terms were met.. After ordering, the box said "Double Congrats! You'll receive you $20 coupon by Dec 6." The 6th came and went and no coupon. Told them to contact Audible and ask for the coupon. At first, Audible told them they didn't qualify. But after some back and forth and saying that the terms never excluded sale prices, Audible credited their account with $20.

Give it a try. Here's the link for the Buy 4 Get $10 terms.

Sounds like you're looking at the version narrated by George Guidall, not the 'full cast' 10th Anniversary version?

It is the George Guidall version. But it's the only WfV option I'm seeing.
