Last night I purchased a book but the download was for something else, didn't even get a confirmation email.

Also never heard anything back when I sent an email about the prices changing on books listed as $1.99 but appearing much higher on the check out screen. That was over a week ago. I'm wondering if those issues are just being sent off into a black hole from their new website.

Update. I just heard back from Customer Care. They offered a store credit or a refund (odd, since I purchased on a gift card - whatever). I'm happy enough waiting for them to fix the book, not like I'm going to read it NOW!

St. Martin's Press bargain. This book dropped pretty much everywhere except Kobo at least a week ago. Kobo finally caught up (break out that 50% code one more time)

Secrets of a Wedding Night (Secret Brides #1) by Valerie Bowman - $2.99
Kindle | Kobo

Quote:
How to Stop a Wedding

Young, widowed, and penniless, Lily Andrews, the Countess of Merrill,has strong opinions on marriage. When she spots a certain engagement announcement in The Times, she decides to take action. She will not allow another hapless girl to fall prey to a man—particularly the scoundrel who broke her heart five years ago. Anonymously she writes and distributes a pamphlet entitled “Secrets of a Wedding Night,” knowing it will find its way into his intended’s innocent hands…

How to Seduce a Widow

Devon Morgan, the Marquis of Colton, desires a good wife and mother to his son—someone completely unlike Lily Andrews, the heartless beauty who led him on a merry chase five years ago only to reject him. When Devon’s new fiancée cries off after reading a certain scandalous pamphlet, he vows to track down the author and make her pay. But when he learns it’s his former fiancée Lily, he issues a challenge: write a retraction or prepare to be seduced—to find out how wonderful a wedding night can be

Did anyone post that I Married a Billionaire, a Contemporary Romance by Melanie Marchande, is free at AllRomance? Ends tonight...

It's always worked for me. Shame is, the time I went really wacko at Kobo (when Penguin first became coupon eligible) I didn't know there was a Kobo buy link. So I missed out a BUNCH of swagbucks

What I did was set Kobo as one of my favorite stores. So I click on Shop, then My Favorites, then Shop Now (which appears when I put the mouse over the Kobo card on the favorites page). Since I download the book immediately after buying, if it's been more than two minutes since my last purchase I usually go back to the SwagBucks page and re-click to bring up the Kobo site again to ensure the affiliate link is still active (probably not needed, but it said something in the FAQ about the purchase link timing out so I figure better safe than sorry).

SwagBucks usually sends me an email a day or so later. So even when I purchase 5 or 6 books I just get 1 email which lists them all. Then it takes 30 days for the points to actually appear on my account.

I am using the same email address for SwagBucks and Kobo. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Hmmm, I guess B&N doesn't make their pre-orders available at midnight My Shalvis book still shows as pre-order. I will check again in the morning.

What browser do you use when you do this? I am thinking maybe that is why. I have done other S&E like Amazon and they all worked but Kobo I want to work as I spent alot there!

Usually IE. I mostly shop on my PC, which is IE 9. But during the month-with-all-the-PC-problems I used my laptop with IE10 for some purchases which I got credit for.

Kobo is definitely on EST. I've been busy buying up all my new releases. Sunday is going to be embarrassing if I don't wimp out on my confession.

I'm more inclined to think the email address for Swag Bucks needs to match the Kobo account email address. I tried it over a month ago using IE, I even went back to swagbucks to re-enter kobo via their link for each purchase but got nothing.


And on another note . . . .
