Buywise Club Basics
the Buywise club is easy! For a yearly, bi-yearly or five-year membership
many great benefits and discounts.
The fees are:
Buywise Club Benefits
- Receive one free eBook of your choice for free for each
year of membership (up to $10, see more details below).
- Receive a 15% discount on all Fictionwise eBooks for
the entire length of your membership. This discount is ON
TOP OF all
other promotions, coupons, and other discounts!
For example, if
you buy an eBook in its first week of sale at Fictionwise it's
automatically 15% off. You may have a 20%
off coupon that you use to further reduce the price of this
eBook. After all those other discounts are applied, your Buywise
Club discount still kicks in for another 15% off the already
- Quantity Purchase Rebates. You will receive a micropay rebate
for large credit card transactions. Again, these rebates are above
and beyond all other discounts that apply to the sale:
- Orders over $100 and under $200 will receive a 10% micropay
- Orders over $200 will receive a 15% micropay rebate.
Example 1: as a member if you place a credit card shopping cart
order for ten novels totalling $60 after your discounts, and you
add another $50 of micropay for a total sale price of $110, you
will receive an $11 rebate (10% of $110) into your micropay account.
Example 2: if you placed a credit card order at Fictionwise with
a total sale price of $200, you would receive a micropay rebate
of $30 (15% of $200).
- Special promotions and discounts. Buywise Club members will
additionally receive special promotions and discounts throughout
the year, which will not be available
to non-club members. We will typically run one of these special
promotions about once every two months.
- Library Access. Buywise Club members are automatically enrolled in the Fictionwise
Lending Library. Only Buywise members can access this library.
How do I get my free eBook(s)?
When you join the Fictionwise Buywise Club, you will automatically
receive an email confirming that purchase. In that email, there will
be a Fictionwise Coupon Code (one for a one year membership, two
for a two-year membership, and five for a five-year membership) which
can be used to obtain your free eBook(s).
To use the Coupon Code, first add eBooks to your Cart. On the Cart
Page (click on the View Cart button to get there), add the Coupon
Code into the text field at the bottom of the page marked "Coupon
or Gift Code" ... then press the Apply Code button. This will automatically
make the HIGHEST PRICED EBOOK in your cart FREE up to a $10 limit!
*Special Note:* You can only use ONE COUPON CODE at a time.
Therefore, to get two free eBooks (for a two year subscription, five
for a five-year subscription), go through the check out process
completely -- as described above --
using the first code. Then repeat the process with your second Coupon
Code to get your next free eBook. Each Coupon Code can be used once
during the entire year of your Buywise Club membership, so you do
not have to rush to get your free eBook(s).
Who Should Join?
The more you buy at Fictionwise, the more worthwhile it is to join.
Assuming you join for one year and use your free eBook coupon for
a novel that costs around $7, that already covers almost one quarter
of the purchase price of the Buywise Club membership! In this case,
if you believe you will spend more than about $100 to $150 over the
next year at Fictionwise, you would then cover the rest of the cost
of your membership through the 15% extra discount you get on every
eBook purchase and other special offers you'll receive throughout
the year. And, it's even better if you use your free eBook coupon
for a higher priced eBook, or if you join for two years and receive
two free eBook coupons.
If you spend $100 or more in a single transaction (perhaps buying
micropay dollars to use throughout the year) then you can recoup
your membership fee very quickly. For example, if you join for one
year and then immediately buy $100 in micropay plus a $7 novel using
your free eBook coupon, then you're certain to recoup your entire
membership fee. (You'd be getting a $7 novel, plus $10 in a micropay
rebate. Assuming you spend all your micropay dollars within a year,
you'd get 15% off of $110 worth of purchases ($16.50) for a total
savings of $33.50, which is already more than your cost of membership.
Add to that savings on special offers you take advantage of as a
Buywise member over the course of a year.)
Can I give a Buywise membership as a gift to another
Yes! Just go to our Gift Certificate
Page and choose either the One or Two Year Buywise Club Membership
gift pack! Fill out the rest of the gift certificate form, submit
it, and check out. Your gift recipient will enjoy all the benefits
of the Buywise club!
What else should I know?
- This is a non-refundable transaction (i.e., once you join the Fictionwise
Buywise Club we can not refund the membership charge and/or cancel
- Your Buywise Club membership cannot be transferred to another person.
- In your Bookshelf, in the yellow box titled "Statistics/Profile",
you will see the expiration date of your Buywise Club membership.
- You will see your Buywise Club 15% discount only when you add an
eBook to your cart. Once in the cart, you will automatically receive
the discount (the discount will be shown in red like this: Club
15% club discount is only for eBook or magazine subscription purchases.
It does not apply to Gift Certificate purchases, Micropay purchases,
donations, or other items besides eBooks. You may use either Credit
Card or Micropay to buy the eBooks and receive the 15% extra discount.
free eBook coupon(s) only work on single, individual eBooks, not
on bundles. Your free eBook coupons make the most expensive single
eBook in your cart free.
free eBook coupon(s) do not work on magazine subscriptions. Again,
this is because a magazine subscription signs you up to receive
multiple eBooks over a period of time and not a single eBook.
Your 15% club discount does apply to magazine subscription
