Kobo Offers Price Match Guarantee for eBooks, Plus an Extra 10% Credit
Kobo recently introduced a price-matching program for ebook purchases that includes a 10% bonus credit.
It works a bit differently than Amazon’s price-matching system where ebook prices get discounted directly to reflect prices and sales by other merchants.
The way it works with Kobo is you have to buy the ebook then submit a request for price-matching to receive a store credit.
This way the ebooks don’t get discounted directly on Kobo’s website. Instead they will issue a store credit for the price difference to your account, plus an extra 10% based on the original purchase price.
The price match request has to be submitted within 7 days from the date of purchase.
Kobo states that they will verify each request within three business days, and they will match the price of any authorized retailer located in your country.
Kobo’s price match guarantee is currently offered to customers located in the following countries: Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
