>OK, I logged into my wife’s Amazon account (she has Amazon Prime, I don’t).   I found a dead-tree book she bought earlier this year.  I went to its page and noted that it said she had ordered it before.   But I see no indication that buying the e-book version of it is free nor even discounted.   

I don't think anyone was making any such claim.
