It's back!

Our 25-hour promotion is back and better than ever! Prepare yourselves for 25 hours of pure excitement starting on Tuesday 12 May at 9:00am BST. We'll have 50 books on offer over 25 hours.
Because books > sleep.

  • So what is this thing?

    The countdown promotion will run for 25 hours, starting at 9:00am BST on Tuesday 12 May. There will be a new book available on our homepage for a great price every 30 minutes. The last one will go up on Wednesday 13 May at 9:30am BST.

    Can I buy all of the books?

    You can buy as many of the books as you like; we offer free delivery worldwide, so there is no harm in shopping again & again.

    What happens if I'm checking out and the books sells out?

    The book you're ordering is only definitely yours when you see the confirmation page -- up to that point if someone beats you to it, then sorry you're out of luck. We hope everyone will get at least one of the titles they're after.

    These offers are really good, are they the same books as normal?

    Yes -- we've done some very special deals with some very special publishers to bring you these great bargains.

    Oops. In all the excitement I bought a book I don't want.

    That's fine, no worries. Just let us know via the form on our contact us page and we'll cancel the order for you.

    Is there a way to find out what the next offer is?

    No, sorry, the fact it's a secret is part of the fun!

  • I added a book to my basket and it was removed, what happened?

    Sorry, the book sold out during the time it took to add it to your basket. Better luck next time!

    I fell asleep waiting for the next product and missed it -- can I still get it at the offer price somehow?

    Sorry, no. These offers are known as WIGIGs in the trade (When It's Gone It's Gone) -- after the offer is over you'll often be able to buy the book again but at the normal price.

    How long are you doing the offer for?

    A new title will be added on Tuesday 12 May from 9am BST until 9:30am BST on Wednesday 13 May.

    Are the products on offer still shipped for free?

    Yes, indeed they are. We have free delivery worldwide.

    Are there any tricks to get through the checkout quickly?

    We recommend that you set up an account (although you don't need one to shop) and add a credit card ready, save fumbling around when too excited (though you will still need your CVV number).

    I've got some other questions you've not covered here.
