Kobobooks: Up to 70% Off Boxing Day Sale

Posted by on December 24, 2013 at 4:30 PM

Kobobooks: Up to 70% Off Boxing Day Sale

Kobobooks Canada has launched their Boxing Day sale early. Get up to 70% off books, up to 50% off indie fiction, and up to 30% off select magazine subscriptions.

In the 70% off section you can get deals on books like Bone and Bread which was $18.95 and is now on sale for $4.99. There are a lot of non-fiction, fiction, mystery, romance, and award winning books on sale for 70% off so if ebooks are on your wishlist – check out this sale.

Another feature of Kobo’s Boxing Day sale is the 50% off indie fiction with the coupon code 50COUPON. Indie novels are usually pretty cheap (the most expensive generally around $5.99) so this coupon will give you plenty of new reads for a very low price!

The really big deal I think in all of this is up to 30% off select annual magazine subscriptions! Kobobooks rarely offers any magazine deals so I am pretty pleased about this one. Popular Science is just $10.49 for a year subscription to the famous magazine. Even with this magazine being on sale at Zinio as well – Zinio’s price (once converted to CAN) is a couple dollars more. The magazines are already discounted and Kobo is not showing the original subscription prices right now but from what I have seen these prices are pretty good. I always suggest price comparing to make sure though.

WagJag Canada: Personalized eBook For Only $9

Check out this unique gift idea. Get a personalized ebook for only $9 (worth $18).

If you are worried about not getting your items shipped to you in time, this gift is online, so ready when you are. Personalize a classic ebook like A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities and many more with your name, your beloved’s name and all your friend’s names. You can do this for adults or children, as they have a wide selection of both types of titles.

When I was a child, I had a personalized book with a story that included my name, my brother and a special aunt’s name. I loved that book and in fact, I still have it. This is a spin on that being an ebook, so you get to hear your name as the main character instead of just imagining it.

Amazon Canada Coupon Code: Only $49 for 6 Kindle   Save $30 Today Only!!

Get Amazon’s awesome eReader for only $49 today only!

Click here to get your 6″ Kindle @ Amazon.ca

  • Coupon Code: KINDLE49 (Expired)
  • Discount: 6″ Kindle for only $49, save $30
  • Expiry: 9th December 2013

This is incredibly rare. These things almost never go on sale. Amazon is likely losing money or making very little money on the Kindle at it’s regular price. They make their money by selling books. I’m not 100% obviously but I suspect Amazon is losing or, at the very least, making no money from the Kindle at the $49 price point.

I’ve written a book that was released as an eBook and I will tell you from experience that Amazon is the king of this space. For every 100 books I sold on Amazon, I would sell one on every other platform (Apple iBooks, Kobo, Nook, etc.) out there. Amazon has the ecosystem and in the eBooks world, the ecosystem is the key to the eBook world.

There is a limit of one discount per customer and shipping is free!

I love that retailers just grab on to any reason to have a sale. Cyber Monday was two days ago. It’s Wednesday now. But their Cyber Monday sale is still going on. So now is a good time to stock up on your winter reading. It’s snow season which means hours of staying inside so you might as well curl up with a good book right? Also, you might as well get 15% off. That’ll make the reading just so much better!

eBooks.com works on pretty much every platform. if you have almost any eReader you can use their books on it. If you’re stuck on a computer and want to bang out a few pages in a book you can. Maybe you’re in the car waiting while your significant other does some Christmas shopping. Bust out your smart phone and do some reading.

Or, if you’re really sneaky, pick up some books for people on your list. It’d take some doing but you could definitely slip a few books on their device of choice while they aren’t paying attention on Christmas Eve. Like a ninja.

Kobobooks Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy – Now $6.38 (Was $30.39)

Posted by on November 18, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Kobobooks Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy   Now $6.38 (Was $30.39)

Kobobooks Canada has the Hunger Games Trilogy at a price that just can’t be beat unless you are stealing it, which is not recommended. The trilogy is currently listed at $30.39 and when you use coupon code 80Nvbr you get the entire trilogy for only $6.38.

With the second movie, Catching Fire, hitting theatres this month (November 22nd according to IMDB) you might want to brush up on your storyline if you have read the series before, or if you haven’t you might want to take a crack at the books beforehand. They have been an extremely popular series of books that is also producing an extremely popular movie trilogy so far. In fact, this year at my home university they are teaching Hunger Games in the children’s literature class along with books like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, and Anne of Green Gables.

I bought my husband the Hunger Games trilogy from Kobobooks and he read it through the Kobo iPad app. I have never seen him read through three books so darn fast! If you do not have the Kobo app you really should check it out. It is really simple to have it installed in multiple devices like your tablet, phone, and your computer. It is also free and it is a great system for reading books on. My favourite feature is reading my books on a black background with white text.

Have you read The Hunger Games Trilogy? Are you looking forward to the second movie?

eBooks.com: 15% off Education Titles with Coupon Code

Get 15% off books in the eBooks.com Education section!

Click here to shop education books @ eBooks.com now

  • Coupon Code: education15%cp
  • Discount: 15% off educational books
  • Expiry: 31st December 2013

When I saw “education” books I actually thought it was educational books. Like books specifically to teach you about penguins or the socio-economic effects of 1970′s Mexican ape populations on Israel.

Turns out it’s actually books about education. There are books for teachers and parents of school kids. There are books on how to get your class to do what you ask, books about college writing and even books to teach a principal how to manage the school. For parents there are books like Overcoming School Anxiety to help your kids through leaving home and dealing with tests and homework. That one is only $3.12 before the coupon code. After the code it’s $2.65.

These are, as the website name suggest, eBooks and they will work on Kindle, iOS, Android, Nook, Kobo, PC, Mac, Sony Reader and I’m sure any other reader you may have.

LonelyPlanet Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive 50% Off PDF eBooks & Chapters

LonelyPlanet Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive 50% Off PDF eBooks & Chapters

This deal is so good we’re doing it twice! Enjoy travel PDF eBooks and Chapters for 50% off.

Click here to shop for eBooks and Chapters @ LonelyPlanet.com now

  • Coupon Code: 50MOOSE
  • Discount: 50% off PDF eBooks and Chapters
  • Expiry: 14th October 2013

Lonely Planet is doing something very interesting with their eBooks that I haven’t seen before. Maybe I haven’t seen it because I don’t buy a lot of reference books, but in any event, it’s cool. What they are doing is letting you buy individual chapters of books. If you’re going to India, you might want to pick up their brand new India Travel Guide – 15th Edition for $12.24 after our 50% off coupon. If you are only going to Delhi, however, why get the whole book? Just pick up that section of the book with our coupon code for $2.48!

I think a lot of people would just use the internet for their info when travelling, but having a professional, especially when you’re in a strange land, is way more comforting. If you’re going to New Hampshire, you probably don’t have to get a professionally done guide book (although you could) since you can just go ask someone if you have a question. Their culture is similar enough to ours that there is no real barrier there. When you’re in a totally foreign culture though, the last thing you want to do is ask someone where some museum is and end up upsetting someone because you made the wrong gesture or used the wrong words.

I’m not sure what people are reading these days, as I have my head firmly planted in textbooks and reading material for school. I just finished reading Hamlet and Catcher in The Rye. This weekend I need to plow through The Crucible (a very painful book to read) for class on Monday.

Not into reading the classics? Check out some of these books, then. I would much rather be reading Under the Hawthorn Tree by Ai Mi than The Crucible. The book costs $12.71, but after coupon comes down to $8.90.

Click here for awesome eBooks @ eBooks.com now

  • Coupon Code: CATEGORYSALECP
  • Discount: 20% off select categories
  • Expiry: 30th September 2013

Oftentimes it seems that most book categories take a back seat to fiction. This is likely because of the internet. It’s easy to get all the info you need on photography, science, travel, business and transportation with a quick Google search nowadays. But, with eBooks and great deals like this from eBooks.com, there is no reason not to pick it up in book form. The eBook allows for a great marriage of technology and books. It has the convenience of the internet and that special, undefinable quality of a book. Of course, getting 20% off isn’t a bad thing either!

Probably the biggest thing for me when I’m looking at eBooks from a non-vendor retailer (Not Amazon, Kobo, Chapters, Sony, etc…) is what they are compatible with. eBooks.com makes it easy, because it seems they’re compatible with almost everything. They say right on the top of their page that their books work with Kindle Fire, Apple, Android, Nook, Kobo, PC, Mac and Sony Reader. That is pretty much every major reading platform out there, so don’t worry about getting a book that doesn’t work. It’s also great if people in your family have different devices. A book you get from eBooks.com can work on your Kindle, your husband’s iPad and your kids’ Android tablets.

CopyHackers.com: FREE eBook on How to Write Better Copy for Your Business & More Freebies!

Posted by on September 11, 2013 at 10:30 PM

CopyHackers.com: FREE eBook on How to Write Better Copy for Your Business & More Freebies!

Are you writing your own copy for your website or business? Learn to write better copy for free at CopyHackers.com.

There have been a ton of awesome free eBook deals lately. There were two fitness/paleo diet books (from NerdFitness and Paleo Network) and a couple of business related ones (from FreshBooks and eReleases). This one is another business related book and is about writing copy. What is copy? Glad you asked.

Copy is basically the text on a website, advertisement, etc. From The Book of Knowledge (Wikipedia):

Copywriting is the act of writing copy (text) for the purpose of advertising or marketing a product, business, person, opinion or idea.

People are paid a lot of money to write copy. Near the end of Season 5 of Mad Men, Peggy Olson was making $19,000 a year as Copy Chief at Cutler Gleason and Chaough. Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Mad Men lately.

Anywho, the free 172 page eBook is called Using Psychology to Boost Conversions and is available directly via this link but you should really sign up for their newsletter to get it. If you dig it, awesome. If you don’t, unsubscribe. And speaking of awesome newsletters that you definitely should subscribe to, sign up for our Mooseletter.

The other freebies are work sheets, cheat sheets and a webinar. You can get that in their Free Awesomeness section.

First off, Sony has some terms and conditions on this deal which are as follows:

Certain eBooks may not be available for download based on place of residence. Limit one (1) code per account. Code is non-transferable and not valid on prior purchases. Full terms available here.

Ok, the fine print is done. The sale is pretty straightforward. You get 50% off one book. The deal might not be available on every book so make sure you check the total before you buy. The coupon code is one use only so I could only test the first book in the list below. I’ve included the coupon price and the Amazon price just to compare. The coupon price may not be valid, but due to the nature of the code, I can’t test it.

This deal went out on our weekly MooseLetter yesterday so if you were subscribed, you would have gotten this exclusive code yesterday. What is a MooseLetter? it’s BargainMoose’s weekly curated newsletter full of deals hand picked by our Queen and Dictator, Anna. Make sure you subscribe right now!

O’Reilly Coupon Code: Save Up To 60% On 7000+ Technical eBooks & Videos

Posted by on September 8, 2013 at 8:30 PM

OReilly Coupon Code: Save Up To 60% On 7000+ Technical eBooks & Videos

If your favourite technical books have to have drawings of animals on them, you need to check out this sale from O’Reilly.

Click here to learn @ Oreilly.com now

  • Coupon Code: B2S3
  • Discount: Up to 60% off
  • Expiry: 10th September 2013, 2:00AM

The deal is for 50% off over 7000 Technical eBooks and videos, but if you spend over $100 (that’s not hard to do) you save 60%. Keep in mind that this expires at 2:00AM on the 10th so really, you should be getting these before the end of the day on the 9th.

I love O’Reilly books. Not just because of the great drawings of cute or weird animals on the front of them but for their content, too. O’Reilly media is made by nerds for nerds. Without even looking at their content (which is top notch), they offer everything DRM-Free. You can access their videos and eBooks in multiple formats for life, and they sync with Dropbox. You also get any updates for free. Once you buy this stuff it’s yours forever.

Like I said, there are over 7000 eBooks and videos, and when you start getting into them all, well, the selection is absolutely staggering. You can learn almost any technical skill with them. If you want to learn how to program in C++, it’s there. Riding the new wave and want to develop for Android or iOS? Learn it with O’Reillly. Don’t want to program? Learn to administer a network. They have tons of geeky goodness for everyone.

You can get more deals on our O’Reilly Coupon Code Page.

Paleo Network Freebie: 3 Free Paleo Living eBooks

Posted by on September 1, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Paleo Network Freebie: 3 Free Paleo Living eBooks

**Before starting any diet, consult a doctor. If you’re taking dieting tips from BargainMoose, consult a psychologist. You have something deeper going on.

Remember the last time I spoke about free fitness eBooks, the ones from NerdFitness? Remember how scared I was of Tony Little back then? Well, I’m still scared, so I suggest picking up three more fitness eBooks, this time on paleo living, lest Mr. Little eat your family.

Again, I kid, I joke. Tony Little is awesome, and don’t you forget it!

Here is another free eBook thing like the one I mentioned in the Intro. Basically, the lady who runs this Australian Paleo website wants you to sign up for her newsletter. You can, of course, unsubscribe from her newsletter, but it has some pretty cool stuff in it, so you might as well stay on. Regardless, the eBooks are free and you can keep them even if you never go to the site again. The books are:

  • The Definitive Paleo Food List
  • A Week of Paleo Recipes
  • Paleo Guide to Australia
I’ve read most of the second book and a bit of the first. They are both very informative. I did look at the third one, but since it’s Australia specific it had a lot of info I couldn’t use. I really liked A Week of Paleo Recipes though. It’s a great way to get started if you’re a bit scared about the whole concept.

To sign up and get the books, go to the website and find the “Get Two Free Paleo eBooks!” section on the right hand side. Sometimes you’ll get a pop-up when you first visit telling you about the offer. If you get it, you can sign up there. I know it says two, but you get three. Not sure why. You can also buy some of her other books if you are so inclined.

The website itself has a lot of great info but, for me, it has a bit too much tree-hugging hippy crap. Again, that’s just me. If you want a recipe for homemade men’s deodorant, you can get it on The Paleo Network. The site does have some really good recipes though, so I’ll be going back to get those for sure.

Oh, and if you want the recipe for home made woman’s deodorant, here it is. Check out the original article for recipes for solid deodorant and men’s deodorant. Get our your Witch Hazel, people!

  • 5 teaspoons of distilled witch hazel
  • 5mls (0.17 fluid ounces) of vitamin E oil
  • 10 – 20 drops of geranium essential oil
  • 10 – 20 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
  • 5 drops of clary sage
  • One small spritzer bottle

Click here to shop select books @ Kobo now

  • Coupon Code: LABOURDAY30
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 2nd September 2013

This deal is certainly not for people like me. People like me (university students) are busy trying to either a) get a head start on their textbooks for the impending school semester or b) are using the weekend to sleep, party, shop, or any combination of things that celebrate their last weekend of freedom.

However, I do know this list includes books I would much rather read than the books I have been assigned. Unfortunately, I highly doubt if I suggested to my Shakespeare teacher that we should study The Merchant of Venice Beach instead of The Merchant of Venice that she would agree. Maybe inside she would be like ‘Hell yes!’ but I doubt my idea would fly. The book is extremely affordable, only $3.04 now and after coupon it comes down to $2.13. If only my textbooks could be that cheap!

We have several high value Kobo coupon codes in the forum, so check them out for more deals.
