Lulu pays your shipping on 10 paperback books

hp1_mailship101

Hey everyone. I just wanted to shout out an offer that Lulu is running this weekend only.

This Saturday and Sunday only, order 10 paperback books and Lulu has setup a coupon that will discount you the equivalent of your shipping cost up to $15.24 (for about 99% of orders of 10 paperbacks, that should cover the full cost of shipping).

Now,  since  the discount is subtracted from the cost of your books, we can’t “technically” call it free shipping, but it’s pretty much the same thing.

To take advantage of this discount just use coupon code MAILSHIP10 at checkout.Again this offer is good this weekend only  from 12/5/09  thru 12/6/09.

How did this discount work out for you?  Let me know.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you soon.

-Adam

    I JUST WANT TO CONTACT YOUR OFFICE. WHERE IS THE PHONE NUMBER SO THAT I CAN SPEAK TO A HUMAN-BEING SO THAT I CAN ORDER A BOOK WITHOUT HAVING TO USE OTHER PAYMENT MEANS THAT ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON THIS WEBSITE. IT REALLY STINKS WHEN ONE HAS TO SEARCH FOR A CONTACT NUMBER AND STILL BE UNSUCCESSFUL IN DOING SO, WHICH IN TURN, MAKES YOUR CUSTOMER TO HAVE TO GO ELSEWHERE TO FIND A BOOK AND MAKES IT MORE OF AN INCONVIENENCE TO YOUR CUSTOMER.

    I JUST NEED A GOOD CONTACT NUMBER. TKS

    This is wonderful BUT how the h— do you find the list of books that you can order? I am new and I have clicked on all sorts of things!

    I just tried to check out with the coupon, but it wouldn’t work. The coupon says buy one get one half off. I have two books in my cart. I put the code in and it says I don’t have enough items in the cart to use the code (without saying what the necessary number of items is; I’d assumed it was two). What gives?

  4. It didn’t work out for me – rather, the offer is very confusing. Whenever you make an offer for “free shipping” it should be clearly stipulated that it is, in fact, free shipping. I ordered ten books but the shipping fees were intact. I had thought my order total for the ten books I’d ordered would be $96 and some odd cents but instead it came out being $122 something.

    Clearly not at all satisfied; I thought that the shipping would’ve been covered and I did enter that code in there as I was supposed to.

    I currently have an open ticket on it but still unsure why the code apparently never worked.

  5. Great offer but, yet again, people outside the US are forgotten about. Why not make these coupon codes applicable to everyone?

  6. I can’t agree with you any more. This is a nice post.

  7. @John – you in fact did receive the shipping discount on order 3741427. The discount is applied to the subtotal:

    Your order:
    10 copies of CID 7820151 : $113.20
    Coupon Savings: $-15.24
    Subtotal: $97.96
    Shipping and Handling: $22.49
    Total: $120.45

    Order without discount:

    10 copies of CID 7820151 : $113.20
    Coupon Savings: $0.00
    Subtotal: $113.20
    Shipping and Handling: $22.49
    Total $135.69

    @Derek – Currently, different coupon codes are offered for different countries, and not specifically only for US customers. We are planning to offer even more specials for international customers in the coming months.

    @Sam – I think you must be talking about a different coupon code?

  8. True, but when you tell someone “BUY 10 AND WE WILL COVER THE COST OF SHIPPING” then SHIPPING should be covered.

    The wording of this promotional was still deceiving IMO.

    Make it easy on your customers AND yourselves. If you are going to pay for shipping, just don’t charge for shipping.

    I ordered 10 copies of a book I made for Christmas gifts on 12/6. It still has not shipped, and I need it by Monday 12/21. The free shipping didn’t help if I can’t get my gifts in time. I have waited over 48 hours for a response from support and have received no e-mails. Does anyone read this? Can they help me?

    Hi Adam
    Maybe you can help me with a problem of a different kind. The other day I ordered a book to download from Lulu. It’s the ebook “Thanks to my mother”. After I’d paid, I was told I had to download some other kind of Adobe Reader (Adobe Digital Editions) though I already have the ordinary Adobe. I did so and downloaded the book, but now when I try to open the file with the book I’m told that the file is damaged. I’ve tried doing it in all sorts of different ways but nothing works. I wanted to report the problem to Lulu via the support page but it won’t let me, presumably because I don’t have a ticket No. or an item No. The order No. is 3809790. Please help, or put me in contact with someone who can. Thanks.

  11. I agree, opening up the coupon to customers in Canada and other countries would be a really good idea.

    Much broader marketing usually is an advantage.

    Hi ,
    When is the next deal??? I want to make an order but I really could use a coupon code for a discount or free shipping? Times are tight!

    :-)Thanks,
    Amy
