Waterstones bring long-running 3 for 2 promotion to an end
It’s the end of an era in the world of bookselling – Waterstones are bringing their never-ending 3 for 2 offering to an end TODAY, with money-off deals replacing it. Amazingly (depending on your own personal levels of amazability), the 3 for 2 has been going on in branches of Waterstones for over a decade.
What will come in its place? Well, two sources have spoken to The Bookseller – one of them says that campaign books will be uniformly priced at £5, while the other suggests that reduced paperbacks will be staggered at £3, £5 and £7.
If you’re a book-buying Bitterwalleteer, does any of this affect you? Did the 3 for 2 inspire you to take a punt on a book you wouldn’t normally buy or would you be equally keen to try a book if it was knocked down to a fiver from, say, £7.99?
Tell us you bunch of bloody bookworms!
