Kobo Books has teamed up with Visa Checkout to offer you $10 Kobo Credit.
The offer is fairly simple: place an (1) order for an eBook or magazine. Use Visa Checkout as your payment method. The $10 will appear in your account as an account credit. it will be automatically applied within 48-hours of your purchase. There is a limit of one credit per Kobo user and, as per usual, Kobo reserves the right to cancel the promotion at any time.
If you are still not familiar with Visa Checkout, then let me refresh your memory on how to use it.
- Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
- Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
- Complete your purchase
There appears to be no exclusions from this offer. I assume, based on the fine print, that any order is eligible including orders that use coupons or purchase sale books and magazines. We have had some great deals from Kobo lately, and you can combine all of them with this offer as well!
I also recently blogged a great magazine deal where an entire year’s subscription will only cost you $5. There are some popular magazine titles in there, thus I recommend checking it out. In fact, one of these yearly magazine subscriptions could be your qualifying order for the $10 credit.
Books and magazines are really a personal taste. I have never managed to get behind digital books the same way I have received digital music, but that is because books are a tactile experience as well. However, I relish the thought of no bookshelves: just a little device, less than half the width of a small softcover, sitting on my bedside table. The minimalist in me loves this idea while nostalgia keeps me from parting from all my books.
Magazines are different. I far prefer the digital copies as it saves so much money and wasted paper. They also are more ‘consumable’ than books. Few people I know read magazines more than once or twice.
This is a fantastic offer from Kobo and I hope many of our lovely Moosers can take advantage of it.
