$50 to keep Harry Potter secrets
Last weekend I received a notice from DeepDiscount.com that my copy of the latest Harry Potter book had shipped. That surprised me, as I knew the official deadline for release of the book was this coming Saturday. Meanwhile, I read that Scholastic, the book's US distributor, was suing DeepDiscount for violating the release agreement. Yesterday, I got a call from Scholastic. In return for my promise that I wouldn't reveal anything from the book prematurely, they agreed to send me a $50 gift certificate to their online store and a Harry Potter T-shirt. I received my copy of the book last night. So, in return for my silence, my granddaughter, an avid Potter fan, gets a T-shirt and my grandkids get a bunch of stuff from the Scholastic website.
