The holidays are the perfect time to cozy up to a new best-seller, and you can save a few dollars on almost any title you want over at Amazon today. The new promotion will only be available for a limited time, and is currently being offered on traditional print-books throughout the store.
If you are looking for a new book, well then we can help you there as well. A few weeks back we reported on Amazon’s “Best Books of 2016,” a list compiled by the Amazon editorial staff that put Colson Whitehead’s “The Underground Railroad” at number-one this year. It’s a fantastic list to check-out each year, and you can use this new promotion at Amazon to save a few dollars and grab the book that speaks to you the most.
This promotion is a little old-school for Amazon, which doesn’t usually use promotional codes, but for a limited time you can use the code “GIFTBOOK” at checkout under the “Gift cards & promotional codes” section.
Using the code will get you $5 off any books purchase of $15 or more. The only exceptions that Amazon mentions is that offer is valid on print books only, so don’t try to use it for eBooks and Audiobooks, or Book Rentals and Amazon Gift Cards (the internet may explode!).
Amazon also stated that promotion will be valid for a limited time, on orders placed between December 2, 2016 at 12:01am EST and December 5, 2016 at 02:59am EST. If you need a refresher on just which books are the most-popular, you can search by category on the promotional site, which ranges from Biographies & Memoirs, to Children’s Books and Cookbooks, Food & Wine, all the way through Literature & Fiction, Mystery & Suspense and Teens & Young Adults. There are dozens of options to choose from, so if you need help finding a gift, or grabbing yourself a new book, it should all be a breeze. You can find all the information on the promotion for a limited time on the official Amazon promotional page located here on Amazon.com.
