TWILIGHT FANS!!! Entire collection on Kindle for $5.27 [Pricing error/now higher!]

For those of you who love the Twilight series or for those of you like me who have never read the books, here is a HUGE DEAL!

The entire Twilight Saga for Kindle at Amazon for only $5.27. That's $1.32 per book. You have to pre-order and it will be available for download on October 27th. Don't wait!

Something still isn't right. $46 is more than buying each book individually. I can't see what the added value would be.

It was a mistake!!!!!!!!

Apparently, there must have been a rash of orders for this collection and Amazon realizing its mistake in the pricing has since corrected it to $46.37 which as others have pointed out, better off buying the books individually.

I did check my Manage My Kindle page and it is still showing as $5.27. So I would strongly suggest if anyone purchased the set for that price, check your invoice once it downloads to ensure Amazon honored that price.

My apologies for any confusion this caused!

Another case of publishers being idiots when it comes to ebooks. The nice hardcover box set is selling at Amazon for $46.37, so of course the ebook 'box set' can't retail for less, despite the fact that you all the books are out in paperback and ebook versions.

Not your fault! And it's not an obviously silly price either - could have been a loss leader or anything.

LOL! Is it a matching set for the Kindle too? Matching covers and pictures?

I've made an amendment in the TITLE of the thread.

Errors, do happen, don't they.

Seems their going off the hardcover set price. Not bad since one hardback fiction book can go for up to $30.00

Back in July I got Twilight and New Moon when they were on 100% micropay rebate. So $9.34 the pair, or $4.67 each.

It'll be a year or two before I get to them, with my "to be read" pile the way it is.

Downloaded at the $5.27 price - WOW!

I am happy to report that Amazon did honor the price of $5.27 which is what the collection was listed at before correcting their mistake. I appreciate that they didn't do a bait and switch with the price. Just wanted to let everyone know! Very happy about this great bargain!
