Kobo have rebuilt the Wishlist. Unfortunately, they've had a delay in the firmware update that matches the store update. But, other than "fairly soon", I can't say when it will be out.

Thanks. Good to know they will sync eventually.

My "fairly soon" turned out to be about two hours I was thinking some time this week, not some time that night.

Kobo US is having an "under $1" sale through May 7. I spotted a few titles that are not the totally usual titles that Kobo puts on sale, so it was of more interest than normal for me.

I listed some of the mysteries I spotted in the sale in this post in the Mystery thread: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh....php?p=3690523

Link to the sale page: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/p/99sale18

Oh yeah, there are also other categories: Historical Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror, Fiction, Thrillers, Romantic Suspense, Cozy Mystery (although I seriously question The King of Shanghai in this category ), Bio and Memoir, Romance/Steamy, Non-Fiction and Kids/YA.

Did anyone else do the mother's day promotion "Your mom is 1 in a million" where you egift $50 or more and then receive 4000 super points yourself (promotion in Canada, Australia and New Zealand from 1 - 13 May). The super points were to be awarded within 48 hours.

Still waiting.... have contacted customer support (I hate their help section btw)

Cadele, I purchased a $50 eGift card on May 2 (the second day of the promotion) and so far the bonus points have not appeared in my account. Is it possible they meant “within 48 hours after the promotion ends”? It’s Kobo, so who knows.

Hi BooksCatsPandas. I ended up sorting it out via chat. The email thing never works for me with Kobo.

I had to send them a screenshot of the promotion offer (which fortunately I had taken after I had been burnt once before with one of their promotions) and then they manually added the points for me.

I would suggest using the link in their email to bring up the promotion page (doesn't show on their front page any more) and then screenshot it. I would then contact them about the points - unless you are happy to wait until 2 days after the promo period to see.

Just a further note, when they had added my points the new balance did not automatically display even after logging in and out I had to click the SuperPoints drop down link on the front page after logging in and then they appeared. This necessitated a further chat before I figured it out

I think Kobo need to be clearer in their promotion T&Cs about exact time periods. I also think that any promotion rewards should be automatically provided as soon as the purchase takes place (when it is a single use offer). YMMV.

Hi cadele. I waited until the promo period ended and still no bonus SuperPoints. The waiting was due more to laziness on my part than to any actual expectation of having the points magically appear in my account after the promo ended. I was encouraged by your positive experience though, and finally decided to give Kobo Customer Care a whirl this afternoon.

This was my first time dealing with Kobo Customer Care and I have to say that my experience was a positive one. I chose to phone rather than use the chat and in less than 3 minutes there was a Customer Service rep on the line to hear my complaint. He quickly added the points manually and waited on the line while I verified that I had received them.

Your tip about the SuperPoints drop down link proved to be a good one. When I first signed in the extra points weren't there and I was just about to tell the agent so when I remembered what you had said, clicked the drop down link and presto, there they were.

I really appreciate your advice and encouragement, cadele.
