2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle price too expensive!, April 18, 2012
This review is from: Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker; Fifty Shades Freed (Kindle Edition)
Why so much for this Trilogy? I would love to read this set, and I love my Kindle. However, I am not willing to pay this price for a simple download. There is something not quite right when it is cheaper to purchase the actual paper books than the Kindle editions. Publishers need to re-think their pricings if they want dedicated customers, in my opinion.

If you do the Amazon prime you can save money. The books are well worth the money.

No they're not. Google Master of the Universe and you can save $30. It's free just read as Edward and Bella but the wording is word for word the same. It is messed up that Kindle books are more than paperbacks but it's a crying shame what was once a fan fiction is $10. That's highway robbery.

A bundle IS suppose to be significantly cheaper. That's the point of buying all books in a series together. Something is wrong here with the pricing in a lot of areas.

These books are not offered in paperback yet, so to say that paperback is cheaper for THESE is wrong. On the other hand, it may be true for the older books that are now finding their way into Kindle, but the new ones are more expensive if you buy them as paperbacks.

These books are indeed available for purchase from Amazon in paperback form and are listed for less per actual book than the kindle editions. One would think that the kindle editions would be cheaper to purchase since there is no real overhead cost or postage, etc. Shame.

This is very true, except that it cost $79 per year to have Amazon Prime.

The ebooks are 9.99 each. This is the same price for 3 books. What's the problem?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 24, 2012 3:21:55 PM PDT
There is no problem. I just think they are expensive in relation to buying the paper book. You would also think that the publisher would offer a price incentive for buying the complete trilogy together. There is more overhead in publishing actual books than ebooks and I personally feel that the price should reflect that.

A bundle is suppose to be a discount. The point of buying the books in one bulk. Not the same price. If so why purchase the "bundle" when you can pay the same and buy the separately.

There's a discount in buying in groups. But not here. That's messed up. Though it's dumb for people to pay $9.99 for what they can get for free but whatever. That's your $30 wasted not mine. I already own this. Master of the Universe I and II and it didn't cost a cent.

Google the term "agency model". Amazon is not allowed to change the price of books from certain publishers.
They can, however, discount the paper versions, which is why they appear cheaper than the ebook version sometimes.

Yes, I know it is not Amazon but the Publisher who sets the ebook prices. Shame they are getting greedy.
