More IngramSpark Shenanigans

This probably won’t impact many authors, but it sure does impact me. I went to use my IngramSpark codes today for IBPA and ALLi and neither one worked because it turns out that on top of the monthly limit IngramSpark has put on code usage they also decided to put an annual limit.

ALLi’s language now reflects that (although I swear it did not before or else I would’ve approached things differently), but IBPA’s does not yet.

So, whatever option you do, know that you have 50 updates across all codes it looks like for a year regardless of that 5 codes a month thing.

(I’d been maxing my code uses out per month because might as well get the value out of them, so yeah, now I’m kinda screwed for who knows how long on more updates, because I can guarantee you the one thing I will not be doing is paying $25 to update an also by listing or fix a one-off typo. Same with new covers. I guess that’s what they want, less updates. So be it.)
