Amazon Hack for 75-99% Discount

image 

Tom Davenport has posted a great little hack for finding discounts between 75-99% on Amazon.co.uk

The hack involves finding a number of “node codes” on the site. See below for instructions.

  • Click on the store you want to buy from – for example, books.
  • Look in the URL for the number that follows “node=”. Copy it. For books, this is “266239”.
  • Paste this into your browser, replacing “number” with your five digit code:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/search/?node=number&pct-off=75-99

  • The page that loads will show all the products in that category between a 75-99% discount. You can play with the discount range by adjusting the numbers 75 and 99.

Tom posted the following links below, which will take you straight to the discounts. Great find!

Jeff Bezos Apologises

Jeff Bezos apologises over the recent Kindle debacle.

This is an apology for the way we previously handled illegally sold copies of 1984 and other novels on Kindle. Our "solution" to the problem was stupid, thoughtless, and painfully out of line with our principles. It is wholly self-inflicted, and we deserve the criticism we’ve received. We will use the scar tissue from this painful mistake to help make better decisions going forward, ones that match our mission.

With deep apology to our customers,

Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

Scoble rips into the Amazon Kindle

I like the idea of the Kindle but I think the execution is poor. Paying to subscribe to premium blogs with RSS??.  Scoble rants about some other areas that suck.
