Yes I did, was getting both of those from the get-go, even before it was the "deadline" (at least in my time zone.). So I wasn't interested in trying to start a free subscription and then try to stop it in a month...

Marie,
Seems as though the book was free for only a limited time (midnight on Dec 2nd, if I remember correctly). I think thatís why everyone is now getting the message that you mentioned.

PROVERBS31JULIA , I just clicked on it and underneath the "you agree to $9.99 a year Kindle Unlimited", it says something about starting a free 30-day trial for Kindle Unlimited. Did you get that too?

I tried various ways, safari, inside the app, on my firefox browser page etc and every time I hit "$0.00 add to cart" it went to the "you agree to $9.99 a year Kindle Unlimited" blah blah blah and I just refused it. I tried entering it anyway to add to cart and it wouldn't add to cart when I untoggled the "yes I agree to the $9.99 kindle unlimited." OH well. Amazon is forever offering free kindle books so I imagine it will show up again in the new year... nice try!!l

Now it shows it is 99 cents or you can read for free if you have amazon prime.

Sorry you had so much trouble. I use the google chrome browser and didn't have any trouble. I do have prime but it was free for anyone. I really hate it when they say it's free and then it's only free if you sign up for kindle unlimited. I don't share those. I have way too many books in my house that I need to read before I could do something like that.

Julia, On my Safari Page it showed that as well. But it also showed the Kindle price as $00.00, so I just loaded it in my cart and clicked buy.

Strange. This time, on my phone, when I clicked the link below, I got a 404 error (last night I was on laptop), and URL was all messed up, like ďwww.https.com/https://(rest of URL like you had it. )Ē. So I cleaned it up and eventually got it to go to the page and it was on my Safari page. Went to my Amazon app and had to search by name and author, to find it... but it didnít offer the deal in Amazon links even though it was mentioned inside the description. But in the Safari Page when I clicked on my phone (which one to send the book to) and the then on buy, it went into this deal about agreeing to buy the $9.95 Kindle Unlimited, deal and didnít have a way to skip past it...




Maybe I need to try again later today, when Iím not as sleepy.

Yea, I'm a Prime member. Hmmm will look again! Thanks (and I was signed into my account at the time, so not sure what happened.), will look again.

I donít have a subscription to KindleUnlimited, but I am a Prime Member, and I got the book for free a few hours ago. Were you signed in and do you have Prime? Maybe if you donít have a Prime membership you canít get the free deal?

Says "SPECIAL OFFER! GET this Bestselling Book for FREE only till the 3rd of December. REGULARLY PRICED 4.99!" and then the Free part turns out to be entry into buying a year of Kindle Unlimited for 9.99 ... sooooo but you know, sometimes they DO actually give away free title for awhile without the annual fee gotcha. They are just going after our "gotta lose weight before we regain it again during the holiday eating frenzy" guilt trip...
