Kindle Countdown Deals

Kindle Countdown Deals

Oh, Amazon: how many ways can you save us money? Let me count(down) the deals! 😉

I think the new

Kindle Countdown Deals

announced in this

press release

are going to be very popular!

When you go to one of the books, you see a current price, and a countdown clock as to when that price expires…and to which price it will return after that point.

There are a lot of good books in there! Discounts are also good (the books must be at least a dollar off the digital list price).

This is part of the KDP Select program…which means it is only available to publishers (including those using Kindle Direct Publishing), which in turn means these books are exclusive to Amazon (during their KDP Select enrollment).

      Yes, I just wrote about it. 🙂 You may just not have the post yet. If you are using a browser, try refreshing (F5 usually works). If you are reading it on your Kindle, try syncing with Amazon.

      The basic thing is that Prime members can select one book (out of a specific four, this month) to get for free (to keep, not just to borrow)…a month before it is published.

      My quick take: why not? 😉

    […] Kindle Countdown Deals (at AmazonSmile): this is yet another way that Amazon gives us discounted books.
