Smile Free SF/Fantasy October 2013 Monthly Baen Bundle

Quote:
Change to Baen Monthly Bundles
From Baen Books
Quote:
Hi folks,

We'd like to announce some changes to the "Gift a Monthly Baen Bundle to a Friend" promotion in order to alleviate confusion with how the program currently works.

Starting today, purchasers of Monthly Baen Bundles can gift a coupon worth $9.99 off anything in the Baen Ebookstore to a friend who is not currently a Baen Ebooks customer. Only one coupon can be sent at a time, even if you buy multiple Bundles at once. The coupons still expire in a year's time.

It's come to our attention that the coupon issued as part of the "Gift a Monthly Baen Bundle to a Friend" promotion can cause problems for customers who purchase a Monthly Baen Bundle last minute. The program is no longer compatible with the way Bundles work as Monthly Baen Bundles now have a purchasing expiration date. Even though the coupons state they are good for a year, a purchaser's friend is unable to redeem the coupon because the date to purchase the bundle has already passed.
Quote:
If a customer chooses to use the coupon towards a Monthly Baen Bundle, eARC, or anything else that costs more than $9.99, then yes, they will have to pay the difference.

The new program is named "Gift A Free Baen Ebook", and the accompanying text clearly states that the purchase of the Monthly Baen Bundle entitles you to invite a friend to enjoy one Baen Ebook for free. The email sent to the recipient states you are receiving a Baen Free Ebook and the certificate is worth $9.99. We believe this change will actually reduce confusion as many new Baen Ebooks customers need some guidance in the way our Bundles work, or did not understand the free Bundle was limited to the Bundle their friend purchased. Opening it up to $9.99 off anything gives the new customer more options to explore our site and pick an Ebook that piques their interest.
The Monthly Bundle Coupons are no more, it is now the "Gift A Free Baen Ebook" which means that in order to do a chain then the person reciveing a coupon will have to make up the difference between $9.99 and the $18.00 bundle price. If you do not want to pay the difference then please send the coupon to the next person.

Here's the October 2013 Monthly Baen Bundle. For those who don't know Webscriptions is now known as the Monthly Baen Bundle. Same service and you use the same accounts, just a new name and website.

For those new to this: When you purchase a month's bundle, Baen allows you to also gift that bundle to someone that does not have an account.

To participate please reply to this thread and then PM the person above you with your e-mail address (that e-mail address can not have been previously used to create a webscription / Baen account). Please put the thread tile in the tile field of the pm.

Do not use a work email, most work email systems spam filters will send the code off to the bit bucket in the sky, never to be seen again. If you use Google check your spam folder.

Once you have the next person's email, you can redeem the promotional code that you received. During the checkout process it will allow you to input the next person's email address, we then repeat as often as we can until the thread dies.

Please also reply to the thread and pm the next person, when you have redeemed the code and sent on to the next person so we can keep up where we are in the chain, always keep the backup/receipt coupon until the next person has used it.

To make this work better, if you join a Monthly Baen Bundle thread:
1. Go to MobileRead User CP.
2. Choose Edit Options.
3. In Messaging & Notification; check Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages.
This way you will receive a email when the code is passed on.

From the BaenEbooks FAQ:
Spoiler:
Each novel is published in three segments, one month apart, beginning three months before the actual publication date. Each month, several books are available. For each month purchased, you receive access to a directory containing these books.

Four months before publication, the Ebook is listed as Forthcoming.
Three months before publication, you gain access to the first Half of the books in HTML format.
Two months before publication, you gain access to the first Three Quarters of the books in HTML format.
One month before publication, you receive full access to the final quarter in all seven DRM-free formats, completing the books.
About two weeks after the last quarter is delivered to that month's Monthly Baen Ebook subscribers, bookstores around the country will begin to stock these titles (if the book is new).
