Below are some discounts codes for ebooks, etextbooks, and the new Kobo Vox ereader.
Don’t forget the daily deals too, no coupons required. Amazon offers a discounted ebook each day here on their Kindle Daily Deals page. Barnes and Noble started doing the same thing, calling in the Nook Daily Find.
Kobobooks.com usually offers a number of discount codes, but not lately. Below are some older codes that are still active for one-time use.

FirstRead – Get 35% off your first ebook purchase.
About half an hour after ordering a Kobo Vox, I received an email with a $10 off discount code for the Vox because I own a Kobo Touch. I’m not sure if this code works for everyone or just previous Kobo ereader owners, but it’s worth a shot. The code expires on October 28th.
Kobo Vox $10 off discount code: kobovox10
This thread at MobileRead points out some additional codes for Kobo, but I have no idea if any of them still work.
