Lonely Planet currently have a 3 for 2 offer on. Buy any 3 books over 9.99 each and you get the cheapest free.

There is a 20% off voucher that has been around a while, which I went to use, but to my surprise the 20% came off the original total, not including the 3rd book free.

Then on top of that there is 20% Quidco, making this a real steel if you're going travelling and want 3 of their travel books.

Example:

3 Books @ £15.99 = £47.97
- 20% (£9.59) = £38.38
- 1 Free (£15.99) = £22.39
- Quidco (£4.48) = £17.91

Total 17.91 for 3 Travel Books

There is actually a better 40% off voucher that you can use - HAYSTACK40 that brings the total down to £12.78!!!

Until they spot it, it works.

We'll see if this all works out... I suspect not. At the very least, Quidco won't go through surely.

Fingers crossed though - just ordered 3.

Won't accept my VISA credit card nor my Maestro debit because they haven't updated their system to accept it! Bah

Unfortunaltely I couldn't find 3 books that I wanted that would add up to £25 after reductions for the free delivery, too cheap!!

Quidco is a real bonus. I am getting £3.59 back on a £17.93 order.

Their site is not calculating the totals correctly - Looks like the free book is also getting 40% of the original price being deducted, even though it is free.
So it is an even better deal :-)

spot on thanks. just bagged a bunch of guides which will go down nicely Christmas morning.

i'm with the library option !!

would you really look at the books again after your holiday is over ?

i guess i'm in the minority so i'll go away now.....lol !

Could anyone help with this?
I have tried adding the following 6 into my basket. Presumably I should only pay for 4, however, it is charging me for 5. Has any body else have this problem?
Does anyone know how to take advantage of 2 lots of 3 for 2 offer? Thank you!:)
