Simon & Schuster Offers Groupon Discount

Groupon has struck its “first deal featuring a book publisher,” offering  an online store discount for Simon & Schuster–the offer expires today.

Here’s more about the deal: “Before books, wild words roamed free, devastating conversations and stories with roving misplaced modifiers and marauding dangling participles. Visit a page-bound petting zoo with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of adult hardcover books, trade paperbacks, audio books, and the entire children’s product list at Simon & Schuster‘s online store. This deal is not valid for e-books and mass-market paperbacks. No matter how many books are purchased in your Groupon order, Simon & Schuster will offer a flat, all-inclusive shipping rate of $4.99 for Groupon customers.”

What do you think? In September, we reported how Watermark Books and Cafe bookstore found 504 new customers this summer–each paying $10 for a $20 coupon for books, drinks, or sandwiches–by using Groupon.
