Happy hour -- 4 great offers

Here at Book Depository we're always up for a Happy Hour. That's why on Tuesday 21 April at 10:00am BST we'll have 4 books on offer over 2 hours. A new bargain will be up every 30 minutes.

  • So what is this thing?

    The countdown promotion will run for two hours, starting at 10:00am BST on Tuesday 21 April. There will be a new book available on our homepage for a great price every 30 minutes. The last one will go up at 11:30am BST.

    Can I buy all of the books?

    You can buy as many of the books as you like; we offer free worldwide delivery, so there is no harm in shopping again & again. You are however limited to three copies of each book per person -- it's only fair that as many people as possible get to grab a bargain.

    What happens if I'm checking out and the books run 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. Don't panic -- 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 all 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 21 April from 10am BST until 11:30am BST on the same day.

    Are the products on offer still shipped for free?

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

    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.
