Good luck!

And if you get turned down, don't sweat it.  I didn't get an acceptance until the thirteenth submission.  And there are others who have had far more rejections than that before getting their first acceptances.

Gah! I was so sure I had price changes on Amazon down pat. (reminder to self: never brag)

I did my Amazon price change to 99 manually rather than depend on a price match. When the promotion ended, I changed all the wide prices back but not Amazon. Once I checked that the other price changes had gone through, I changed Amazon quite sure that I would avoid a price-match. And Amazon still price matched to prices no longer in effect! *tears hair out*

Email them and received their 'we'll take a few days to think about it' response. 🤦‍♀️

It's super irritating.  :HB  I'm surprised when I don't have problems now.

I *think* all my 'price matching' is fixed now, but I might have missed something. *heavy sigh*

It's always good to get that first one out of the way. Better luck next time!

You're not missing much. These days I prefer to use tactics I can control like the click ads and promo stack you're running. You don't need anyone's approval to do that!

I totally sympathise and use those tactics as well. Unfortunately, none of them bring me the results of BB promotion. I sincerely wish they did. It is way beyond irritating that we cannot properly plan our promotions.

I agree with that when it comes to the full deals (US & International), but they're close to impossible for little indies to get these days. The international-only deals aren't as good by a long distance. In fact they're so poor that I don't think they're worth doing.

This one I combined with a BB click ad and a couple of other promos and it was all right, not great but worth doing.

ETA: I am definitely a 'little indie'. Having had quite a few BB promos including in the recent past, I feel safe in saying that it is not impossible to get one. It is difficult. It almost always takes a number of tries and is definitely discouraging. It isn't fun getting 8 or 10 rejections before you get one. But it can eventually pay off.
