Why are there limits to how many times a promo code can be used?
In line with our ongoing catalog integrity efforts (read more here), we now limit per-account use of promotional codes to help distinguish the works of our community from the millions of mass-produced and public domain books too often found in the self-publishing landscape. In this way, and many others we hope to reduce bias against self-published works.
We encourage you to visit the websites of these organizations to learn more about the benefits they offer and how they can help you.
Where do I get a promo code?
IngramSpark will sometimes offer promo codes for free title setup or discounts off the print cost of a publisher direct/short-run order, placed through the customer's account on the IngramSpark website. These offers are announced in the IngramSpark newsletter and will have limits as to how many times the code can be used, per IngramSpark account.
Members of the associations and organizations listed above can obtain promo codes from those groups.
Experts listed on our website may also offer a promo code for a reduced or free title set up when using their services.
