Free book - £30 off ANY book at Palgrave Macmillan, NO minimum spend, free P&P!

Found 21st Dec 2016Made hot 22nd Dec 2016
Palgrave Macmillan are offering £30 off on ANY print or eBook in their range until December 31st! This includes titles which cost under £30, of which I found plenty. As far as I can see, there's no way to sort by price, but I just ctrl+f searched for £2 and £3 so it would show me any books that were £20-30ish on each page.

Successfully placed an order, didn't have to enter any payment details and have received a confirmation email, so fingers crossed!

Edit: This website offers a bookmarklet to filter out books over £30 (and also apparently how to get more than one free book, though I haven't tried that myself) - hackmillan.github.io/

EDIT 2: The original code is apparently no longer working, but HLDY16S is!

Great find!

Thank you

Thank you

thankyou I've chosen how can you defend those people x

Good luck finding anything easily. Can't filter by price, pages revert to euros when filtering, etc..

Good find thanks for posting heat added

Great find, thanks. Ordered a book and no payment details were required

Thank you!

Heated though

Superb
Tolkien - a cultural phenomenon - £26 - Free!!!

In case anybody was wondering, you can get more than one book for free. I got 2 in the basket at £15 each with £0 to pay.
5 degrees of heat applied.:)

Nice one thank you. Ordered but unfortunately for work rather than personal. Meh.

How is this not 1000 heat. If it was mars bars for free it would be the highest rated post on HUKD. Anyway hopefully got a fantastic book on the history of infinity on the way!

I think you've answered your own question there. It's because the intelligence of the average (not all, fortunately) HUKD member isn't much beyond reading the big letters on that Mars bar, let alone any of the Palgrave Macmillan titles.

Hey, what kind of books did people download?
I found one 'book on C' which is just under 11 pounds. Wanted something to do with business set-up/tax/ something alon those lines but struggling to find something.

No longer working?

I can't get it to work either.

I can apply the code, but once I register to check out, it gets removed. If I try to reapply it, it says it's invalid. This is the code they are still advertising on their website.

Hmm.

Nothing in the fine print, maybe, but I imagine they soon realised this was wide open to abuse from an audience somewhat wider than originally intended..........;)

Their Twitter account has reported on the issue "Sorry to those experiencing issues with our £30 holiday promo code - working to find out what's going on, so stay tuned."

I do wonder if like you say, they realised it was open to abuse. A mistake like that could hit a company hard if 10s of thousands of people pick up on it.

Someone on Twitter just suggested the code: HLDY16S - my sister's just tried it and it's worked!
And I received my original order today, so looks like they are fulfilling them!

It tried to charge me, so don't like it, made me worry just before New Year
