Must paper books be bought from site to get $5 ebook deal?

Is the "Register paper book, get ebook for $5" deal only for paper books previously purchased at, or can they be bought from anywhere?

All the references I find to this point to the login screen for O'Reilly Member, so it might be answered there, but I don't want to create an account just to find out.

  • Hi, Åsmund.

    You can register any O'Reilly book you own, whether it was purchased directly through us or not. You will need to create an account to register your print books, which you can do here

    Once you have created an account and signed in, just click the 'Register Print Books' tab. You can look up your books by ISBN or by title.

    Once you have registered your print books, go to the 'Your Products' tab and click on the 'Print Books' tab. To the right of your registered books, you will see a yellow button that says '$4.99 Ebook Upgrade'. Click on the button and it will place the ebook into a cart and auto-fill the discount code for you.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions or need help with anything else, please let us know at
