Amazon Local has serious discounts for savvy consumers who know how to take advantage of daily deal sites.
For a limited time, get a FREE voucher to purchase select e-books for Kindle for just $1.00.
Escape with a page turner from the Amazon Kindle Store. Choose from 25 select mysteries, thrillers, sci-fi adventures, literary gems, and kids’ books for Kindle — just $1.00 each with a free voucher.
- The voucher expires at 11:59 p.m. PST, Feb. 7, 2013.
- The voucher is valid for select Kindle books for $1.00. The customer is responsible to pay Amazon.com for the final price of the Kindle book with discount, plus taxes.
- Limit 1 voucher per customer.
Daily deal sites use a voucher system. Consumers buy a voucher for a cut-rate price to redeem for a full-priced product. For example, a shopper may buy a $60 voucher for $120 worth of services at a particular salon. To use the voucher, the buyer must print it out and take it to the local salon and redeem for the full-priced services. That’s a 50% discount for the buyer and a new customer for the business. Everyone wins!
