    Will BN price-match Amazon on book?

      Amazon currently has First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones listed at $2.99. This is a St. Martin's Press ebook so not an Agency publisher (I think), but I was wondering if BN has any plans to get the same sort of deal from SMP that Amazon did.  I would love to purchase this ebook.

          St. Martin's is a Macmillan publisher, which is an Agency Model publishing house. The Amazon page says, "This price was set by the publisher".


          To answer your question, B&N has repeatedly said that they don't price-match. At the same time, they often do just happen to match after a discrepancy is called to their attention.


          BN.com doesn't do much over the weekend. Check back tomorrow and see if the price has been updated.

            St. Martin's is an agency publisher (oops, saw that it was already pointed out). I did a quick search and that book is listed as $7.99 at every bookseller except Amazon, so it looks like it may be Amazon's mistake.
