  1. Why is this offer for orders of x “copies”? That makes it sound like I’d have to order, say, 35 copies of the same book in order to get 15% off. I can’t imagine why I’d do such a thing.

    Wouldn’t it be better to say “15% off when you buy more than 35 qualifying books”?

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for taking the time to post. This is a very interesting comment. I’m curious to learn a little more about your interaction with Lulu. Particularly, do you consider yourself more of an author, reader or both? Regardless, I’m interested to learn what kind of discount would interest you most. (this goes for anyone else reading this comment who’d like to chime in)

    Ordering 35 copies of the same book is precisely the type of order this discount is designed for. Many of our Lulu authors place bulk orders for a book they’ve published to distribute or sell offline.

    I hope this helps.

  3. I think the “Fall Savings Spectacular” special is great… but I wish it applied to ALL books, instead of just those unique sizes!

    I order several more copies of my books TODAY if I knew that this coupon code applied to any books.

    Too bad.

  4. I am currently designing a set of tarot cards. I wondered what possibility there was of Lulu installing a feature for publishing cards?

  5. Adam,

    Thanks for the clarification. The only book I’m currently selling via Lulu is an e-book, and thus out of bounds for this by any definition. So I guess I’d be more of a “reader” by the definitions you set forth. I just can’t see why (if I were creating physical books) I’d want to buy so many copies. Surely I wouldn’t be able to sell them myself for any better profit (having already paid Lulu for them) than I could get by having folks buy them from Lulu in the first place!

    But, if it turns out this actually works well for those who do, in fact, publish physical books this way, that’s great. It just doesn’t make sense to me as a person who hasn’t done that….

  6. At first it was nice to see an occasional coupon… but now it’s rapidly becoming annoying… or worse.

    Since people often order directly from storefronts, they miss seeing the coupon offers so can’t take advantage of them. If they subsequently discover that a coupon was available, they can easily feel hard done by, since they ended up paying more than necessary.

    Similar feelings occur when one places an order and then the next day there’s a coupon that could have applied had they only waited a day.

    And the lifetime of coupons is usually so short that they are very reminiscent of those nasty “come in before midnight to get this special deal” offers that low-grade companies resort to.

    So I am of the opinion that the way coupons are currently implemented is detrimental to good customer relations (that is, the relations between lulu and its customers, and between authors and their customers).

  7. I have to agree – I think it would be much better, instead of these constant “hurry up and save” coupons for Lulu to LOCK IN larger bulk purchase discounts, especially for authors buying their own work for distribution.

  8. Adam, I received an promotional announcement concerning up to $1000 off for my next bulk order. $100 off for 100 copies or $1000 off for 1000 copies. I placed an order for 100 copies of my book, entered the promo code FRANKLIN. Every time I selected either the ‘Update Cart” button or the “Proceed to Checkout” button, the promo code would disappear; and it would not reduce the order total by the $100.00. Is Lulu going to honor its promotion and credit me $100? I paid the full amount so my order wouldn’t be delayed. I want my $100.00 credit returned to my card, though. Can you help me?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.
