Extension of $5 Credit Offer in Final Days of eRead Local Promo

Kobo’s eRead Local promotion wraps up November 29, but customers signing up for a new Kobo account with an affiliated independent bookstore through the end of the year can still earn a $5 credit toward their first purchase. See BookWeb’s Kobo DIY for banners promoting the $5 credit offer.

Announcing Black Friday and Holiday Device Promotions

ABA members can order Kobo’s Glo HD and Aura H2O eReaders directly from Kobo, and, to top it off, Kobo is offering special pricing for the Glo HD:

  • Glo HD Black Friday promotion, November 27 to November 30: Special price $109; rebate $19.
  • Glo HD Holiday promotion, December 10 to December 31: Special price $119; rebate $9.50.

Sales made during the promotion period can be reported through the Kobo Reporting Tool until January 31, 2016.

Booksellers must order devices through the Kobo corporate site to take advantage of the special pricing. Booksellers interested in buying direct who have not yet set up an account with Kobo’s corporate site should e-mail Kobo’s Catherine Villar with the store name, city and state, and the name and e-mail address of the person authorized to purchase devices and accessories.
