One Day Sale at Books-a-Million for Members Only + New Amazon Shipping Policy

Books-A-Million (BAM) has a one day – November 15 – sale of 20% your entire purchase, except BAM Millionaire’s Club Member ship for $25 that gives free shipping plus random in store and online discounts all year.  If you’re not a member and pre-order lots of dead tree books like me, it’s worth going, joining and placing a big order.

Now BAM ships the day a book is released, not so the book arrives at your house on the release date.  But guess what?  Amazon is changing their shipping policy to ship when ‘Books are in stock’.  Is this new?  Yup.  Go to a ‘to be released book’ that you HAVEN’T ordered and a little drop down will appear at the top of the listing with the new policy!  It’s easy to miss, but take time and read it.  One of my pre-orders is already going to be 4 days later.  I thought it was the publisher till today.

So for anyone who finds they don’t make enough use of their Prime Membership and just wants free shipping, take a look at BAM.  The website is nowhere near a match for Amazon, and certainly can’t compete in the ebook area with Amazon’s CreateSpace platform, but for dead-tree-books, they’re fine.  And you can easily do what I do, use Amazon to find what you want, put it on a wish list, then buy from BAM.  In fact, I just moved a bunch of pre-ordered books over as well!  Now I have to go cancel the Amazon orders.  Hey, it’s my money.  I paid for the $25 BAM Millionaire’s Club with what I saved today, so the rest of the year is a gift.

$7.99 mmpb’s are $5.75 (BAM automatically prices them at $7.19, so it’s 20% off that existing discount)

Trade size varied depending on list, but averaged around $9.30

Hard cover also varied, but one dropped all the way to $16.63 from $20+

If you join BAM’s Millionaire Club today, the 20% whole order discount will apply.  Good way to get calendars as such too!  Happy shopping!  BUT HURRY!

PS – I just cancelled over $200 in pre-orders from Amazon and moved them to BAM and saved enough to order 4 more books + the pay for the BAM Millionaire’s Club Membership!
