I was looking to see how much the books from SCM will cost for next year. I noticed there is a box to put in coupon codes. Is there a certain time of year when a coupon is offered? I would be spending close to 200.00, so it would be worth it for me to wait for one if one is offered.
To my knowledge they’ve never offered a coupon code (seems to me they’ve said in the past it’s because they try to keep their prices affordable all year). The exception to this is when they release a new product – often it’s discounted a few dollars when it is first offered. The second exception is their convention prices, which are also slightly lower – so you can save shipping as well as a couple dollars per item.
If you won’t be going to a convention their ebooks are a great deal!
The coupon code field is mostly there in case we need to make a special code to correct a problem with an order or something. We do try to keep our prices affordable rather than inflate them to have sales. New products are typically introduced with a special price for a couple weeks. (Hint: watch next week for one of those.)
