I’m sad

Are the daily deals going to be $14.99 from now on?

Up until last Wednesday the daily deal books were $9.99, then there was a sale for Mike Loukides SysAdmin Essentials at $14.99 and the price has not gone back down since. Should I plan on this being the price to expect from now on? Put it another way, $9.99 was a sweet spot and I could easily rationalize the price.

  • Hi T. Brandon,

    Thank you for your interest in O'Reilly books. As you noted, our ebook Deal of the Day prices have changed a bit. We are now basing the discount price off the original cost of the ebook. Some ebooks will have a slightly higher price, but many will remain at the $9.99 pricing.

    If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service department at (800) 889-8969 or for international customers, please call (707) 827-7019, or write to orders@oreilly.com.

    Kind regards,

    I personally think this is the wrong direction for O'Reilly. I had written to O'Reilly to actually reduce the eBook prices further. Multiple price points for the eBook deal of the day makes them really unappealing. Having bought several books from the daily deal, I for one will no longer buy anything above $9.99, since I believe that most eBooks should be priced below that price point. Maybe price points of $9.99, $7.99 and $4.99 would be a better choice.
