Because they're mispriced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And they're $2.07 for Canadians, so if they do update the price, they may be on sale for us too.

That is weird. I see the same thing...banner says "99 cents each" and then they are listed at $1.99.

You may want to call Customer Service if you want to buy some of them.

I think the sale price is supposed to be $1.99 (because others have been posting about what a great deal that is). I think the ad banner got keyed incorrectly.

If this is the daily deal, looks like they're working on it.
I get a "Oops! The Kindle Daily Deal will be back soon..."
message.

eta: nevermind. in another spot it's still listed with the discrepancy.

Gwen, I contacted CS and they know there is a problem. It should be corrected in a few hours to $.99.

Here is the text of my chat if anyone is interested.

Initial Question: Under the Kindle Daily Deal the header shows 10 books by Lawrence Block for $.99 each. When I purchased one it was $1.99. Which price is correct? I was going to purchase all of them.
07:40 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): Hello, My name is Muthuraman from the Amazon Kindle Support. I'll be happy to assist you.

07:41 AM PDT Beth: Hello
07:41 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): I'm so sorry to hear about this problem that you have with purchasing a daily deal book.
07:42 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): Currently, this is a known issue running on our website and we have already reported this to our technical team.
07:42 AM PDT Beth: There is a thread about it on the Kindle Forum - it is happening to everyone.
07:42 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): They are currently working on a quick fix.
I suggest that you to try to purchase the book after few hours.
07:43 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): Errors like these will be corrected as soon as possible when they are reported.
07:43 AM PDT Beth: Which is the correct price? If I purchase them now can I get a refund of the difference?
07:43 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): This issue is happening to all our Customers.
Have you purchased the book?
07:43 AM PDT Beth: I purchased 1, I was going to purchase all of them.
07:44 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): In this case, I will issue a refund for that book.
May I have the book name or order number please?
07:45 AM PDT Beth: I can return it myself through MYK.
07:45 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): Okay, Beth.
07:45 AM PDT Beth: Are you saying $1.99 is the correct price?
07:45 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): Please try again over the next few hours. Errors like this are usually corrected shortly after they're reported.
07:46 AM PDT Beth: Are you saying $1.99 is the correct price?
07:46 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): No. The deal is actually for purchasing those books at $0.99.
But the price under the title is displaying as $1.99.
So once it is changed to $0.99 you can purchase it again.
07:47 AM PDT Beth: OK, thanks.
Bye
07:47 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): You're welcome. Is there anything else I can do for you today?

07:47 AM PDT Beth: No, Thank you.
07:47 AM PDT Muthuraman(Amazon): You're welcome. Thanks for contacting us at Amazon.com.

Have a nice day! Bye!

Well, now the header says:

Ten Books by Lawrence Block, $1.99 Each

I emailed them to and voila it was corrected. I was hoping it would be corrected to each book for $.99 but it wasn't.

Sadly I expected the header to be changed instead of the prices, but one can always hope....
$1.99 ($2.07) is still a decent price...

I posted about this earlier today, but that thread seems to have been deleted. In any event, I inquired about the .99 price, the Kindle support person gave me a special link, and it still didn't work, so she ended up giving me a promotional credit that I could apply to other books. The Block books were sold by HarperCollins and Amazon could not adjust the price.
