In summary, Amazon daily deals offer customers a collection of EBooks for a heavily discounted price. But only for 24 hours.

They change over the book cycle as 12 am everyday, hence the name.
You can get some pretty amazing deals on books here. We’re talking in the range of 1$ – 3$ per book! Good luck heading to your local store to find the equivalent.

What About Other Daily Deals On Other Amazon Sites Such As Amazon Uk or Amazon Auz?
Good question. Even though they’re the same company in different countries, each Amazon offer widely different deals. For example on the Amazon UK site, their daily deals included garden furniture, facial spa equipment as well as a different set of Amazon Kindle books to download. You’ll need to check the rules with Amazon as some products they will ship internationally, others they won’t.
However for Kindle books this shouldn’t make a difference as they’re download to the device. They even represent the information differently, with the Amazon Auz website highlighting the discount from the original price up on the search results page.
