Just had an email with this as the subject. Clicking on the link provided takes you to "£10 off any order. This weekend only."
Edited to add:
Just noticed "Applicable on any order with at least one full priced book, including limited editions." Puts a bit of a damper on it, if you were getting excited at the prospect.
Why would that put a damper on it? Are there even any titles discounted at the moment?
For US customers, the email shows $20 off any order using voucher code KEASTP, ending at 5pm Monday, UK time.
Edit: It also states that it cannot be combined with any other voucher codes, so if you're going to spend more than $200, I believe the KMAG9 code for 10% off is still your best bet.
In the European email it's KEASTP and 10 Pounds off anything, including limited editions: "Applicable on any order with at least one full priced book, including limited editions. Cannot be combined with any other voucher code. Offer ends 5pm Monday 15 April 2019 (UK time)."
Curious. I just double-checked the email and it definitely shows KEASTP and $20 (not £10). Good to know that KEASTD might be more correct, although, I'm more likely to pounce on the KMAG9 option.
>2 adriano77: Why would that put a damper on it?
Because you need to buy two books. In UK prices, that means £6.95 postage. It's not much of an incentive, even if there were books which might tempt me. There aren't.
My bad. I interpreted "with" to mean "plus". On re-reading I believe you're right. But there's still no books currently available that I haven't got and would be willing to pay very nearly full price for.
It can only be for market research, then. It's a common tool, to divvy out different codes to different markets or venues, to see how or which people are buying things.
I am able to navigate their site throughout from the US but when I try to make an order, it keeps locking up. When will they finally deal with their site?
I guess that they don't mind lost orders anymore.
>12 Forthwith: ... i'm in US as well ... I've had similar issues. I've found several times it was more a browser issue then their website. I try using different browsers and usually have success (chrome, safari, firefox, internet explorer).
Or if all else fails ... I call them and they are beyond friendly and helpful ... but that's just my experience.
The irony is that I had just ordered 7 Pushkin Press books from Amazon with their one click ordering. It was immediate. The FS has fallen far behind in basic modern customer service.
I pulled the trigger and bought Jane Eyre. Shipping was $11 to the US, so I figure it was ten dollars off a book I have wanted for a long time (and which I have never seen on sale). YAY
Picked up ‘Thunderball’ and saved the price of shipping (and a few dollars more).
The Australian version of the voucher doesn't cover the cost of shipping a standard book like Thunderball.
How much is shipping to Australia? $16.80 CAD for a single book here in Canada. Creeped up and up but, when I consider it against individual sellers on AbeBooks or eBay, it's actually still competitive.
For Germany, they now charge 13.50 Pounds for shipping a single book, plus those 10% on top of the price. So a 10 Pound voucher definitely isn't an attractive deal. I might have gone for Anansi Boys otherwise.
