Spend $25+ on Kindle ebooks, Get $6 promo credit

It’s that time of the year for the Kindle ebook offers as well! This promotion runs between November 23-30 in 2020. If you purchase $25+ in Kindle ebooks in any combination [eg one expensive ebook, or multiple ebooks on different days] during the promotional period, you will earn a $6 promotional Kindle ebook credit.

First, you must activate the promotion. If you are logged on, it may activate simply by visiting or reloading the page, or by following the link mentioned over there.

Once activated, any purchases you made during this promotional period [even before you activated the offer] count towards the $25 minimum.

Your $6 bonus will be applied to your Amazon account within two days of reaching the $25 minimum.

Once applied to your account, you have 21 days to spend the $6 ebook credit (you can use it on one ebook or multiple ebooks).

To make the most of it, plan also how to spend the $6 credit before jumping in on the offer, so it won’t be left to expire unused.

Some ebooks also have a “Great On Kindle” store credit, which is stackable with this $6 credit…

BOOK CLUB TIP: If you are looking for a long complicated epic fantasy that can be read by the whole family during the socially-distanced winter holidays, try The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson [there’s Kindle sample and look inside]. Not brutal or convoluted or uber-complicated or sexually charged as “A Song of Ice and Fire / Game Of Thrones”. From what I recall the most sexual thing that happened in book #1 was a kiss between two mature adults. Infact it’s so nonsexual you have to wonder whether most of the characters are eunuchs 😉 Note that this is planned as a 10-book series but Sanderson is writing fast fast fast fast.

Wedn: “Picture This: How Pictures Work” by Molly Bang for $3

Friday: Photoshop Elements 2020 Dummies ebook for $5

Reading is FUN-da-mental! Of the Friday Kindle daily deals one is of photography interest, it is the Kindle edition of the Dummies Photoshop Elements 2020 by Barbara Obermeier and Tad Pavoda for $5. This has 425 pages and as of the time of writing it averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 260+ ratings…

The store credit is applied automatically and expires automatically if not used.

The ebook averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 74 customer reviews. The price was right so I just purchased it but obviously I can’t read it and digest it and review it before the expiration time. I’m not a 32-core system after all, I’m just a Celeron 🙂

As the Zen in the title hints at, this is a blend of photography and (Westernized) Zen, so prepare for some spiritual materialism 😉

If you want to take a shot at the book but you are not sure whether it’s something you’d like, and you are going to have the time in the next few days to dive into it, note that Amazon offers refunds of ebooks within a few days after purchase. Locate the purchase under amazon.com/myk [myk = my kindle] and request a refund.I think it’s seven days but I’m not 100% certain.

Still Good: Photographer’s Guide ebooks by Alexander White on sale for $8 each: Fuji X100S, various Panasonic LX*, Sony RX1/RX10/RX100 models, Etc

Alexander S. White has written a lot of camera guides for various RAWsumers/serious-compacts and a number of his ebooks are currently on sale for $8 for the Kindle! You can find them all under his name.

How useful these type of ebooks can be to you depends on many factors. For example, if you purchased every single Sony RX100 camera since they started coming out, you may have no need for the RX100 Mark V book. On the other hand, if the Sony RX-something is your first ever Sony digital camera, a camera guide can be helpful in getting you familiarized with the world of Sony.

Among the camera guides that are going for $8 as of the time of writing:

+ Fuji X100S
+ Sony RX1R II
+ Sony RX10 IV, I
+ Sony RX100 V, IV, II, I
+ Nikon P900, P610, P600, P510, B700, etc
+ Panasonic LX10/LX15, LX100, LX5, ZS70/TZ90
+ Canon S95
+ some Leica D-Lux models

There are two ways to get a feel for these camera guides before buying them:

1. you can get read Kindle sample (typically the first few pages of the book)
2. if you go to the hardback/print version of the book, it may have “Look Inside” enabled. “Look Inside” often lets you jump all over the book, and that’s the best way to get a feel for it since you can read actual content, not just the beginning

PS: you can find out at any time how much no-rush shipping digital credits you have by doing to amazon.com/norushcredits – it’s easy to remember, no rush credits. As far as I know, there’s no way to tell ahead of time whether an ebook is eligible or not for no-rush-credits.

Amazon Teases Two Camera and Photo Black Friday items: Fuji Instax and N-Geo Rarely Seen Photography Book

It’s only a matter of time before we start getting movie trailers from Black Friday retailers, but at the moment, Amazon is happy to tease us with press releases. They list items that will be offered at any point in time between now and December 22 in 2016. I have no clue when the items mentioned will be offered. Of camera and photo interest, they tease two products:

+ Fujifilm Instax Mini 26 film camera with Film Bundle for $49.99

+ 52% off on the “National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary” by National Geographic and Stephen Alvarez (website)
+ the list price of the hardcover book is $40, so assuming it is 52% off that, the sale price will be $19.20. The current price of the book (as of the time of writing of this post) is $27.19
