(OLDER POST) Amazon Books $5 off / $15+ coupon extended until Friday night

This is an older post… Check the top of the website for the latest updates…

Amazon often extends the book coupons during the holidays and this one is no exception. It was supposed to expire on 12/14/17 at 11:59pm pacific, but now the Terms and Conditions have a Friday 12/15/17 at 11:59pm pacific time expiration date. It is the same coupon code, so I don’t think you will be able to use it twice.

The coupon is this: Coupon code BOOKGIFT17 gets you $5 off the purchase of $15 or more in Physical/Printed Books. Also eligible are photographic and other calendars, comic books, and sometimes even audiobooks on CD. You can add items of interest and coupon to the shopping cart and see what happens. The shopping cart is the ultimate decider of what’s eligible…

Strategically this is good for books that have the same prices everywhere, or rarely go on sale. Some places to look for ideas:

+ Best Seller Lists

+ Photography Best Sellers

+ then drill down the sub-categories on the left-hand side, eg Black and White Photography or Digital Photography

+ those categories have sub-categories for further drilling down, eg Editing or Flash Photography

+ as usual, these rankings are only as good as the accuracy of the product categorization
