BOTD not free even though it says it should be?

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

BOTD not free even though it says it should be?

Post by WhiteLotus »

I wasn't really sure if this went here or not...

I got the BOTD email and went to enter, the page says it's free for everyone and has to be downloaded in order to enter the giveaway, but it's not free on amazon at the moment.
Is anyone else having this issue?

It isn't free for me as well. It is probably a glitch.

It was fixed now. Please note that the BOTD isn't free, so you don't have to get it.

Are there people who actually win the $10 or $20? I've been participating in the BOTD for months now but haven't won the slightest cash.

Yes, there are. I won several times.

You need to participate daily. There are many participants, so it can take a while until you win.
