Quick reminder…

For the next few days, my publisher is running a promotion so the digital version of book, which took me 2 painstaking years of near-suicide to write, is less than $3. Read it on your computer, iPhone, iPad or Kindle for $2.24. Or on your Nook for $2.99.

The promo price is the lowest it’s ever been — I don’t usually do discounts or sales, so this is pretty unusual for any of my material — and ends in a few days.

What do you get in the book?
– The word-for-word script on how to negotiate your way out of a late payment on your credit card (pg 24)
– How to pay off debt — whether it’s student-loan debt or credit-card debt — using mathematical and psychological strategies (pg 350)

– The little-known technique to improve your credit — if you have no debt (pg 23)
– The script for increasing your credit limit (pg 28) could improve your credit score and save you tens of thousands of dollars when you go to buy a house. Let’s say that’s worth $100.
– My step-by-step instructions on how to automate your finances should conservatively earn you over $100,000 over your lifetime — if you are an illiterate, half-blind, one-legged pirate who doesn’t even do exactly what I say.
– A simple investing solution that outperforms the vast majority of investors (I use that term carefully) year after year (pg 177)

– How much should I be spending on entertainment? Food? Rent? I have the specific numbers for you (pg 104)

  1. Nearly bought the book before finding out it’s not available in the UK. Are you planning to release it here as well?

    • Ramit Sethi

      There is actually a special UK version available (not at the discount price, though). Check or UK bookstores.

  2. Amazon is telling me it’s not available for customers in Australia. Damn. We want to be rich too! 🙂

    • Ramit Sethi

      I wish I could control international pricing 🙁

  3. Nathaniel

    Not for sale at all in Asia & Pacific.

  4. hmmm… looks like i need to find my nook… and brush the dust off of it..

  5. Its not on sale on I tunes

  6. I just got this and haven’t gotten very far but I did want to note that not all secured cards mature into unsecured cards. I made this mistake and ended up with a secured card that had 0 intentions of maturing – even after I called and asked. I’m sure that is a new concept but just FYI – since I doubt you’re out there shopping for secured cards.

  7. Karolyn

    Finally bought the book!!! Now, off to set up some behavioral cues to encourage reading…and taking action…

  8. Wow thank you. I just bought it!

    Hey Ramit,

    I bought your book the year it came out and absolutely loved it. It contains very practical advice.

    I understand that your target audience for the book was 20-somethings, but I would be very interested to read your advice for the 30- and 40-somethings – i.e., Those people who have a steady career and just begun a family. Even your current target audience of 20-somethings is not going to remain 20-something forever, right?

  11. Ordered the book at Barnes & Noble for my 1st generation Nook 3G. Doesn’t work… Sigh, this is the second book I have ordered that had issues… Now I remember why I barely use this thing…

    Anyway, they are looking into it. At least Barnes & Noble have good customer service.

    • Got a refund… I guess they couldn’t fix the issue… Shame, I was looking forward to reading it

  12. Amazon is currently saying your book isn’t available to customers in the United States. Is this an error, or did I miss out on the deal?

  13. Kindle edition not available in the United States? Seems odd.

  14. My friend posted a link to this blog entry on Facebook, and I checked it out and bought the book on a whim. I’m so glad I did! Your book was the kick in the butt I needed. It’s actually paid for itself already, since I took your advice and called the bank to get some ATM fees reversed. I read the book cover to cover. Thanks!

  15. Is this offer still running? Im in the UK so im going to call my state side friends later (too early in the morning there atm) to order one for me.

  16. Wow! Can’t even remember how I found your site but got your book a couple of days ago and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you put into it. I’m still reading thru it (on Chapter 7 now – fun!) but loving every page and spreading the word to all who will listen.

    Thanks again!

  17. Jesse Land

    Got it and am looking forward to the read, thanks Ramit. I actually listed to your interview with David from Rise to the Top and then decided to pop over to Amazon and check out the Kindle version of your book. Good timing on my part. 🙂

    I look forward to checking out your other content also.



  18. I bought this book as soon as I saw the announcement on Twitter. I haven’t put it down since I purchased it.

    This book definitely motivates one to start making changes and I love it. I love the 85% rule – it’s so realistic and allows for some mistakes to be made, which will absolutely happen.

    Thanks for a great book.

  19. Mike Billigs

    Just ordered, and am looking forward to my copy in the mail. Looking forward to having a Ramit that I can carry around with me.

  20. Ooops. Missed this one. This is what i get for not visiting this site in 2012. 🙁
