I received a newsletter from Fictionwise today offering a 100% Micropay Rebate on its entire 42,000 book catalog. The catch is that the sale lasts only one week and it is offered only to those who have a buywise subscription expiration date AFTER October 31, 2012. My Buywise Expiration date is February of 2012.
The good news is that anyone can take advantage of this sale IF they sign up for a Buywise membership that extends beyond October 31, 2012. For me, I would have to buy a 1 year extension. A full five year subscription is $124.95 with an automatic $5.00 micropay rebate.
The offer also is limited to $300 in total rebates. Essentially, Fictionwise is offering $605.00 worth of ebooks for a total cash layout of $424.95 which is 30% off each book’s club price which is 15% off the retail price. It’s a pretty good deal but you have to spend the $424.95 within one week. I’ve got to admit that I am really tempted.
