Once again, no banner for me. After hearing about a few people getting multiple $5 off redeems in a single week on their Google Play account, I've decided I am doing something wrong with my Google Play account.

At least Smashword's sale last week allowed me to pick up several eBooks at 50-75% off, some at 100% off.

You may have followed the suggestion in post #'s 114 & 147 but, if not, make sure that you have done that.

However, I haven't seen any banner ads, myself, for $$$ off on books, the last few times that I've been on the Google Play website, when it used to be that I would see them fairly frequently.

Yes, I have. My post #148 mentions that. But like you, I am definitely seeing the banners a lot less than I used to.

Even in those instances where I am seeing the banners, some of the time the redeem codes don't work. I have a few posts on this thread mentioning that also. That's why I wonder if there's some other issue with my Google Play account. Google certainly has no problem taking my store credit when I do purchase books there or redeeming any bought gift cards.

There's another $5 off any $5+ book offer. The offer expires 4/2/2018, so you'd better hop to it (Easter - hop to it, get it? ). Once you've redeemed the offer, the reward expires 4/14/2018.

I saw a small banner in the Play Store app a little way down on either the Entertainment/Movies-Music-Books page or on the Books page.

They apparently no longer allow you to use these offers on gifts. I first noticed this with the Valentines Day $3 off offer. I used to send a discounted gift from my secondary Play account to my main one. Now when I try that the discount is not applied.

Thanks. I don't use the app, so I always forget to check it.

Once again, not available for me. I think that's three in a row since my last offer. Based on my last response here, seems I am not alone.

None for me either. I checked the app and PC (sometimes it will show on one and not the other).

I've never gotten one on the app on my phone or tablet. I always get them on my laptop. I did get the $5 off again last week.

Ok found the $5 off coupon on my tablet in Play store, books, ebooks section. When I logged on to google play from my PC found a $.99 move rental, do glad I checked play today.

Have an email account that is growing cobwebs on it, because you haven't used it in so long (I've got at least three)? How about an email account in which you rarely if ever check the inbox?

If you answered "yes" to either one or both of those, you might want to check it/them if you don't get a message from Google Play in the account that you regularly use.

I just got in my inbox (and not in my primary email account) this offer from Google Play:
SEE WHAT'S NEW ON GOOGLE PLAY BOOKS
$5 CREDIT FOR YOU
Here's your $5 credit to use toward any Ebook over $5. Kick back and relax with a new Ebook on Google Play.

Claim your offer below and your credit will be applied at checkout.*
CLAIM YOUR OFFER
This offer is only valid for [me@noneofyourbusiness.com].
Forwarded recipients are not eligible for the offer in this email.


Note that it seems to be targeted to only certain people (as per usual, it seems).

I didn't see any ebook deals on Google Play's homepage. Sorry. There is a deal to get 99 cent rental deals on The Karate Kid Collection movies. You know, I never did get to watch all of those in the 80's . . . .

Best wishes getting the $5 credit deal on ebooks.

Another 3 months, and still no offers. Been bypassed on the last 5-6 global offers despite making some eBook purchases on Google Play. With my account balance heading toward zero, I have little incentive to add any gift cards to the balance going forward.

Waiting for Smashwords.com's July 1-31 sale. The same books I can get there and on Google Play may end up being cheaper on Smashwords. I normally wouldn't wait, but Google Play has annoyed me enough to hold out for the sale.

It's too bad Kobo hasn't had their global %-off coupons like in the past. Most of theirs coupons now are for specific authors or limited selections.
