Read our frequently asked questions below. Don’t see your question here? Feel free to submit a question or ask us anything by contacting us.
Is it true that there are “No strings attached”?
Yes, this is true. You are not required to do anything – just download the books that you want whether they are the free offerings or the deeply discounted deals (or both).
How much does this cost?
The daily newsletter is absolutely free. The only time you’ll pay for anything is if you decide to buy one of the deeply discounted books – and those are almost always only 99 cents.
Is this site legitimate?
Yes it is! We’ve been alerting readers to free and deeply discounted ebooks since 2010. We have about 500,000 Facebook followers and nearly 200,000 email subscribers that receive our updates every day.
Am I required to buy a certain number of books?
No, you are not. You only get the books that you want. There is no minimum amount to download. There is also no maximum amount either – download as many of the deals as you’d like!
What if I don’t like the books?
You are free to unsubscribe at any time. However, we would suggest not doing this because you never know when a great deal will come up for a book that you’ll love. Many of the book deals that you’ll receive are from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
Why am I receiving books in genres that I did not sign up for?
The only time you should receive a book in a genre that you did not sign up for is the Book of the Day which goes out to all subscribers. It is the first book listed in the daily newsletter.
How long do the deals last?
While some of the deals are ongoing, most are limited time – 1 to 3 days – so make sure to take advantage of them the same day that you receive your newsletter.
Why are authors giving their books away?
There are a few reasons but here are the most common ones. Many authors give their books away to get their names in front of more readers. It’s a great way for them to promote themselves. Another big reason for the freebies is that the authors will give away the first book in a series in hopes that you’ll be interested in the series and then get the following books in that series.
Is this just for Kindle?
No, it is not. Although all of the deals are available for Kindle, we also have deals for the Nook, iPad, Google Play and Kobo.
What if I don’t have a Kindle but I’d like to take advantage of the deals that are available for the Kindle?
You can take advantage of all of the deals without even owning a Kindle by downloading the free Kindle app. The free app is available for just about any electronic device including all smart phones and most tablets, including the iPad. You can download the free app here.
Are there free book in every genre every day?
We post anywhere from 8 to 12 free books every day and we have 20 genres to choose from so there are not free books in every genre every day.
How do I change my email or update the genres that I receive?
On the daily email, click at the link at the top of the email that reads “Update Subscription Preferences” and you can make your changes there.
What time do the emails get sent out?
The emails go out around 9am EST during the week – a little later on the weekends.
Is this the same or does it have anything to do with Kindle Unlimited?
No, this is completely different than Kindle Unlimited (KU). You do NOT need to have KU to take advantage of these free and discount offers. The books we offer are yours to keep for as long as you want them and will only leave your ereader when you delete them yourself. There is no monthly charge for our service and never will be.
