Free $10 Credit Towards Amazon Kindle e-Textbooks

Update: Here are some good investment books that you can get for free or cheap with this discount code. Check out the top-selling Kindle e-textbooks for ideas, but I like The Ivy Portfolio and the classic Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits. Thanks to reader Max for the tip.

Amazon.com is offering another $10 of free credit towards Kindle e-Textbooks with the code ETXTBOOK. Additional directions and a place to enter your code at this link. I don’t believe you actually need a Kindle to use these electronic textbooks, as there is a Kindle app for PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android phones as well. You must use it by 11:59 p.m. PST on January 9, 2012. I got this for an Amazon Student account, but it should work for everyone.

Are electronic textbooks much cheaper than paper textbooks after taking into account selling the used book back? I have no idea.

Comments

  1. I don’t either so I asked my sister who’s in her last year of undergrad. She told me the option for electronic textbooks are still very scarce so she’s always opted for the actual used book.

  2. What counts as an e-textbook? If a more mainstream book (Moneyball) is on a class reading list, can I purchase the kindle edition and use this credit or is this a specific “store” within Amazon?

    Thanks for your help!

  3. I use the credit to get this book:

    The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets

  4. Thanks for this code. It accepted my code but the credit didn’t show up when I was checking out :(

  5. @Max – Thanks for the link, I’ll add some more options in the original post. There are some good investment books available on the cheap.

    @Swati – Did you make sure it said “This books qualifies for e-textbook promotions” on the product page? Not all textbooks qualify, and only Kindle versions.

  6. @ Jonathan – You are right, the book I was looking for doesn’t qualify for the promotion so I grabbed a copy of the book same as that of Max.

  7. This still worked for me today, at least it showed up as a credit. :)

  8. I see the deadline is extended to 1/23. But I don’t see Ivy Profolio is qualified. Did they take it off from the promotion?
