    Amazon kindle eBook reductions, bargains, freebies - post your finds here! 12th Mar 12 at 1:18 PM
    It seems that Amazon has started doing short-lived reductions on some kindle books which are down to 20p or so for around 24 hours. I have not had anything official about this, but just noticed them in the kindle books 'movers and shakers' list. Some have previously been posted in this forum by myself and other helpful people, but it would be handy to keep them in one place.

    So please post any short-term bargains here.

    Please don't post details of the (huge numbers) of self-published books that are at low prices long-term (usually 79p)or free books - just genuine short-lived bargains.

    Also, to avoid clutter, please also don't post links to the many books that are permanently available free. Here is a link to the top 100 Free Books in the Kindle Store: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Sellers-Kindle-Store/zgbs/digital-text/ref=zg_bs_fvp_p_f_digital-text?_encoding=UTF8&tf=1

    So here is one short-lived bargain I spotted today for 20p, ususally £7.71 (Edit: offer now expired - price now £3.99)

    Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rules-of-the-Game-ebook/dp/B005QEE22M/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1331558177&sr=1-1
    Not read it myself, but it has a few good reviews

    Also don't forget the ongoing Kindle Daily Deals (as previously posted) where a different book is available each day for 99p:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_161849367_2?ie=UTF8&docId=1000577623& pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=right-1&pf_rd_r=1V6FWDY2986TX5AQM0GX&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p =270713247&pf_rd_i=341689031

    Hi. I cant see this 40% discount on my account - it just gives me the option to sign up for a months free trial and the small print says it will be £7.99 thereafter. Do you already have to be signed up for kindle unlimited to use it????
    Thanks!!!!!!

    This offer is available to Prime Members only and is a limited-time deal starting at 00:00, 5 July 2017 till 23:59, 11 July 2017. Customers who have purchased multiple prepaid plans that are currently associated with their Amazon accounts are not eligible. For existing monthly Kindle Unlimited subscribers who redeem this offer, automatic renewals will be temporarily suspended for the duration of the prepaid subscription purchased and will automatically restart at its conclusion

    Edit, just logged in and tried it, I am Prime and I get the same as you, One Month free and then £7.99 a month thereafter

    If it's of any help, you won't see the discount until you go to checkout. They've done this in a very odd way but you'll see the full price for a 24 month contract as £191.76,discounted down to £115.06 for Prime members. Just over £1.10 per week.

    i'd missed this promotion so thanks for posting

    just started a prime trial & I've had unlimited for ages, so daft not to go for the 24 month option & save some money. really don't mind paying my monthly fee for unlimited as I must get through about 10-15 books a month, well worth it.

    just deciding if I really need to upgrade my kindle now (it's the original 1st version) to the paperwhite at £80 on prime day....decisions!

    The Paperwhite is very nice, and well worth the discounted price. Once you've tried it you're unlikely to want to go back to the original!
