AwesomeBooks Coupons: 4 For 3 or 20% Off

3 August 2013

Awesome Books is a company out of the UK that has truly fabulous deals on books. Right now they have two really remarkable offers that I wanted to share, where you can get four books for the price of three or get 20% off your order. Enjoy free shipping when you order two or more books.

  • Coupon Code: pick443 (expired)
  • Discount: 4 For 3 Bargain Bin Books
  • Expiry: Unknown
  • Coupon Code: pick20 (expired)
  • Discount: 20% Off Bargain Bin or Used Books
  • Expiry: Unknown

The four books for the price of three offer is only on bargain bin books. However, the 20% off coupon can be used on bargain bin books and used books as well.

We don't often post about companies from overseas but once in a while I like to post about this company. Their free shipping to Canada on book orders of two or more is really worth its weight in gold, and with the school year coming up I often turn to book companies like these for my books. As I am an English major I am often reading old novels and books that I can get for pretty cheap from companies like AwesomeBooks. Since the book-lists for most universities are out now I welcome deals like these!

  • CANADIANFAN
    Thanks so much for these codes. I am, ( to my wife's unhappiness ) a HUGE book lover & reader and these codes make my favorite hardcovers AFFORDABLE to me. It's VERY generous of you to share. Thanks again from Canada North
  • Avigayil M.
    I agree! Awesome Books is one of my favourite places to buy books from! :-) Besides, you can often get the UK covers which are often better than the US covers for the same books!
    • CANADIANFAN
      You're right! Often, it has happened that a book I wish to review on Amazon.ca is NOT EVEN LISTED by ISBN as it was, I presume, a Brit-only release. BTW I am up to over 400 reviews on Amazon.ca Thanks again for the code.....I will, of course, post any that I find.....the latest was LIT20 which I didn't post here....but did on 2 other sites but this may now be my ONLY Awesome code place....LOL
  • thesilentman

      Any coupons or discounts lately from awesome books? They are becoming stingy and now apply shipping fees to Canada.
  • CANADIANFAN
    No coupons yet. As a side issue I had posted my displeasure ( quite polite as well ) with their shipping costs to Canada and DESPITE their claims to the contrary they HAVE deleted ALL my posts....AND blocked my ability to leave any others on their site. I was shocked to say the least as they had earlier replied to an Italian lady that they had not in fact edited her post when she inquired why they had. It is now clear that awesomebooks is firm in their shipping costs and will brook no nay-sayers to their new and obviously VERY unpopular policy. Why they did not instead opt for a scaled shipping like most other sites with a reasonable initial cost and a minimum increase for each additional book. I can see, as I am sure, many of you can, a SERIOUS reduction in the number and variety of 'new' incoming books to the site. I'm sure this reflects the poor feeling many people have and shows up in substantially reduced sales. They have pushed themselves into a spiral of reduced sales and increasing costs......as my grandmother used to say....it'll all end in tears. 'nuff said. Hope this post remains for at least a short time....we'll see how strong the awesomebook leverage is.

  • CANADIANFAN
    Sadly KAVI......after a VERY long time, the awesome20 coupon died today. I'll have to wait until another 20% pops up.....I'm spoiled now and nothing else will do. Have a great new year everyone!
  • CANADIANFAN
    boxday good for 10%
  • CANADIANFAN
    BTW.....just for giggles I tried awesome20 for the last 3 days and no go but today.....IT WORKS!
  • Artemisia

    Awesome20 doesn't work for me anymore, I tried other combinations and awesome10 gives a  10% discount..... BUT still awesome20 doesn't appear as "invalid" (as does awesome30 for example) so I suppose there is still hope!

  • CANADIANFAN

    As is my custom, because I buy a LOT of books and otherwise couldn't afford them.....well as many anyway, when presented with a non-working code I go back and try all the ones that previously worked...and, as Artemisia suggested, often try 'variations' of them...awesome20 and 20 awesome and several times awesomebooks20 has worked as well.

    I am HAPPY to announce that I worked my way through a large bunch of codes and TODAY AT LEAST....books20 is working.

    No idea how long or what others out there might also work but aside from awesome10....10%, it is the ONLY 20% code that works.

    ENJOY

    • CANADIANFAN

      May 20....sad to say it worked yesterday but not today and nothing I've tried works.....c'mon out there.....find a nice 20% for everyone!

  • micek27

    CANADIANFAN

    --BIG THANK YOU for keeping this thread open. We all really appreciate it!

    Too bad kavi and peter don't post anymore -but really, anyone who is/was posting codes here--THANK YOU!

    To tell You the truth, I personally don't use Awesomebooks as much as I used to.

    I guess I already bought almost all the books I was interested in... LOL

    (But also, they were absolute "maniacs" a few years back (2012-2013):

    1. FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE (if you bought at least 2 books)

    2. ALWAYS A WORKING 20% CODE (I was maybe once-twice without a discount while ordering at least twice per month)

    3. ANY NEW LISTED BOOK WAS ALWAYS €3.50 THE FIRST DAY, even if it was Extremely rare book, worth €100 from other sellers.

    And usually, if you missed that and the price jumped (to the mentioned "normal" €100) it fell back down under €5 in about a week... (But you need to check daily)

    Does anymore remember those Good old days?

    CANADIANFAN, I am sorry to hear that I have just missed the "awesome20" code.

    I guess these codes You listed above are on/off - hot/cold...

    Thanks anyway.

    • micek27

      Uf, Mistakes...

      "But you HAD to check daily" and

      "Does ANYONE remember those Good old days"

      PS: I just tried "books20" on my order and it worked..! But when I changed the order from £ to €, discount disappeared.

      I tried everything to bring it back with no success. --Like I have said: hot/cold.

  • CANADIANFAN

    micek27,

    I sure do remember those days......as well if THEY cancelled an order because it was mistakenly listed the refunded the amount PLUS $2.00

    Can you imagine that today.....from any company?

    I'm buying much less than I used to but more than I should....if you know what I mean.

    Take care and i hope a good code comes up pretty soon.

    P.S.  I tried books20 again just for the heck of it and even changed the money to Pounds but still no go....although it says nothing, NOT that it is a bad code

  • CANADIANFAN

    Update.......it's not as much as I wanted but I just tried book15 and book10 and book10 works.

  • micek27

    Hi CANADIANFAN,

    I didn't knew they used to refund additional $2 --that was really awesome!

    The thing is, I always got my orders back then, not one was "mistakenly listed".

    You probably had problems because You're from Canada (I guess)... And if You ordered something really BIG & HEAVY (but very CHEAP), they just said they made a mistake with the listing.

    (Or if someone from UK/Europe made the same order as You did, they rather shipped it to them than You.)

    --Try to remember and You'll see the deals You didn't get were probably "too good to be true". HAHAHA

    Don't worry, nowdays this happens a lot with them --even to me & I'm from EU.

    I tend to order visual books or technical books, which are big and pricey.

    I am always scared the worker who is packing my order will fall in love with my book, & say:

    "WHAT --He's getting this for 5 BUCKS?!

    Tell him we "mistakenly listed" it --I'm taking this book home to my kids!" HAHAHA

    PS: Back to codes

    --Yes, "books10" and also "awesome10" work

    (I made an order with one of them yesterday.)

    "Awesome20", "books20" & "awesomebooks20" some hours/days work, & some don't...

    My advice is --prepare EVERYTHING:

    Log in,

    Pick right currency,

    Put all the books you want in the bag...

    ...then cross fingers & try one of the three 20% codes.

    If it works, complete the order.

    Don't try to update anything. You can lose the discount like I did.

    (Also, I don't believe it has anything to do with how many books you pick, which currency you choose...)

    Good luck!

  • CANADIANFAN

    micek27,

    I checked back in my personal book purchase records and it actually happened 11 times that they gave me a $2 discount on the next purchase  and they were all because Awesome said they had accidentally mis-listed the book...yes I agree most likely it was 'accidentally' sold to someone else but none of them were 4 to....( large books ) and none were rare...so I presumed then, and still think now that their listing system has a delay between your purchase and it being removed from the stock page because it hasn't happened in years.

    I have purchased from other companies and was very suspicious a few times when the book was under-priced seriously...

    All of my purchases are hardcover....not very many exceptions and I prefer them large and heavy...( good quality paper ) and luckily Amazon.com....none of the other country Amazons however, gives the WEIGHT of the book....and weight = quality of paper given certain dimensions and # of pages.

    OOPS....as my wife would say....maybe too much information for some people not quite as obsessed as I am.

    Take care

    • micek27

      Don't worry

      --I'm sure all of us here are book obsessed

      HAHAHA

      Yes,

      Today sellers are selling one item on multiple sites & listing problems (can) occur because of it...

      Hey man,

      Thanks again for listing codes/keeping this thread alive.

      Nowdays I rarely buy from Awesomebooks, but it is good to know this place exists...

      Take care

  • CANADIANFAN

    OUCH  micek27,

    Nothing works.....have you got a working 10?

    • micek27

      Hey man,

      I just tried all the codes and only Books10 worked for me...

      (If You're wandering at what time I tried the code:

      It is 2 hours until NBA Game7 of Thunder VS Warriors here in Europe.

      HAHAHA --"Universal time system".)

      I hope it will work for You as well.

      If You want to, You can try this theory of mine:

      Create ANOTHER ACCOUNT (For Your wife maybe) & try if discount codes work with this NEW account.

      --Maybe Awesomebooks created "a system" that allows a person to use a specific code only ONCE..?

      --(But I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT, as You don't even have to be "logged in" to try if the code works.)

      (I don't order from ABOOKS as much anymore, otherwise I would have already tried it... HAHAHA)

      PS:

      My last order came in Cardboard packing.

      (It is SO MUCH BETTER than the thin-black-nylon-based They were using this last couple of years..!)

      Did they again revert back to old secured & superior Cardboard packing?

      --That would be awesome!

      Again, I hope Books10 will work for You!

      Take care CANADIANFAN.

      (I'm sorry about Your Toronto Raptors.)

      • micek27

        "wondering" --not "wandering"

        HAHAHA

  • CANADIANFAN

    micek27

    Funny....books10 doesn't work in my name but did as you suggested and changed to new account and it works......BUT only until checkout...then it must recognize a similar addy or postal code and drops the discount and wants to process the full amount plus shipping...can't seem to bypass it.

    Thanks anyway...I'll wait until a new code comes up I guess

  • -M-

    Hi every1,
