Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale might be over, but there is at least one noteworthy deal lingering on Amazon.

How does $5 off a $15 book purchase sound? That’s a savings of up to 33 percent — on physical books.

Amazon is offering a promo code — “PRIMEBOOKS17” — good for $5 off book purchases of more than $15. It’s valid until 11:59 p.m. PT Wednesday, July 12.

A dollar-off coupon or promo code for physical books like this is a rare deal. You can find discounted and even free e-books any day of the year, but I can’t remember the last time I saw a physical-book coupon like this one offered by any retailer.

Needless to say, I’ll be using Amazon’s promo code to buy some of the books on my Amazon wish list.

A few book recommendations from us

Not sure what to buy? Perhaps you can use the coupon to purchase a book that will sharpen your investing skills. We recommend these classics in “9 Tips Beginning Investors Must Know“:

You can’t go wrong with the works of great investing minds like Warren Buffett or Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson, either.

If you’re not in the mood for a financial book, consider “The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined” by Steven Pinker. Microsoft co-founder-turned-philanthropist Bill Gates recently recommended the nonfiction work on his blog, calling it “the most inspiring book I have ever read.”

How to redeem the promo code

Now for some fine print you’ll want to note when redeeming the Amazon promo code:

  • You must enter promo code PRIMEBOOKS17 at checkout.
  • The offer only applies to products sold by in the U.S. Such products will have the words “sold by” on the product detail page.
  • The offer does not apply to digital content.
  • The items to which you want to apply the promo code must be purchased in a single order and shipped at the same speed to a single address.
