Barnes & Noble eStore Will Price Match Amazon
From a reader at Information Week, Barnes and Noble’s eBookstore aka Fictionwise + eReader will match the prices offered at Amazon. Now if Fictionwise could only get its act in gear and offer the books that are released this week in a timely fashion. Hard to get excited about good prices when significant books are missing from the ebookstore.
Here is the info I got from them in their weekly email yesterday.
- All new eBooks are $9.95 or less.
- No eBook over $12.95. They aren’t moving all ebooks to $9.95 or less, only newly published ones. Cutting to $12.95 is a substantial cut for many older books though.
- All books on the New York Times Bestseller list are $9.95, whether it is new or has been there a while.
- 15% rewards on each purchase.
