THERE'S A CHANCE YOU COULD GET SOME CHEAP BOOKS

OR NONE AT ALL

Lured by the generous extra points from mypoints, I signed up for membership to Just Good Books. Odd though it may seem, I very rarely read books, as I have the attention span of a ... .......................................................................................................... where...

I love books. I love getting them, reading them, and having them. I will even dust them … well, sometimes. I love a bargain too, so when Mypoints directed me into the Just Good Books site (www.justgoodbooks.co.uk) which advertises “75% off every book” I thought I’d found...

Do not have the full range especially older titles

Just Good Books blatantly advertise that they beat anyone on the price of thousands of books and not just any old books, but the best books money can buy. After viewing such a statement it was only natural that I was pretty interested in finding out more. First you will need to become a member...

Not for me

Erm....offers are good but they never deliver

the whole thing

Just for books is a really crap service, to be quite blunt! Im a big fan of books so when I saw the offer 6 books for a fiver and get them delivered in time for Christmas. What a great idea I thought. Many of the books also had 75% off which I thought was a good deal for Christmas, I hadn’t...

Could extend its crime/thriller range

Having belonged to various book clubs for many years I have finally found one that seems to offer good value. Just Good Books is a relatively new club. When you join you are offered the opportunity to purchase up to 6 books at 75% off and you also get a free copy of the Encarta Dictionary - an...

Just good books' 75% off 6 books introductory offer was just too appealing. I signed up, selected my 6 books and voila they arrived a little more than fortnight later. So far so good. They have no editor's choice, you only have to buy 1 book in the first year of membership- sounds perfect, no...

“A Tenner for Harry”

published 21/01/2002

all four books on special offer

took a long time for books to arrive

In the middle of November I saw a special offer from Just Good Books (a member of Book Club Associates) offering 3 Harry Potter books for £9.99 +P&P, and the other one for free). I immediately applied,via the internet,( especially as with this book club, the only condition is to buy one more book...

Great choice of books, excellent discounts

There is a charge for returning books

I read a lot and so am always on the look out for a chance to buy reasonably priced books. I came across an advert at the back of a magazine for Just Good Books. Their introductory offer was 6 books for £6 plus a free Danielle Steele book. I checked it out online to see what my commitment would...

“Just 'good' Books”

published 14/09/2002

75% off books for intro. offer

bad service, need to buy book to fulfil commitment

I was lured into joining Just Good Books when I saw the 9.99 Harry Potter Book Set Offer. I thought, great, I won't need to borrow Harry Potter books from my friends anymore! The commitment is only buying 1 book from the club for the whole year, which I thought was reasonabl - it can't be too...

“Not too bad as book clubs go”

published 04/10/2003

Cheap introductory offers

None really

I've always been tempted by adverts in magazines and on the internet for bookclubs which offer books at really low prices. Usually, however, if you read the small print at the bottom of the page you find out you have to buy loads more books or a book every month or get sent an editors choice that...

“No hidden catch”

published 21/07/2004

Cheap books when you sign up, freebies with orders

Nothing I can think of!

I joined Just Good Books after seeing the offers of very much reduced books when you first sign up. You always expect a catch in the small print, but all you have to do is buy something like three more books in six months. I was really pleased when I got a massive box full of the first books...

“I've no problems - so far”

Cheap prices

Be aware of special book club editions

Having read the problems alot of people have experienced with this company I thought I would add my own experience. I joined Just Good Books via the Mypoints website (to gain extra points) so that I could stock up on good reads at cheap prices. I subsquently ordered 6 books of various kinds at...

Good choice

Not particularly cheap

For me, the sole advantage of a book club is that the books on offer are cheap, as you don't get to browse through them, and you have to wait quite a while to receive them. I joined Just Good Books because their entry terms are decent. You get 5 books at very cheap prices, and your only other...

“Books - what books”

Cheap

No choice or variety

I'm a bit of a sucker where book clubs are concerned - I see a bargain joining offer and sign on the dotted line as quick as a flash. Not anymore though. I signed for Just Good Books on a 6 books for £5 offer, and was really pleased. I only needed to buy another couple in 12 months, which isn't...
