Possibly it wasn't a misprint, nor even a mistake, just imprecise
phrasing.  My suspicion is that it translates to:

  >>> Use code "os06dsug" when you register, and receive 15% off
  >>> the prevailing registration price (lower now, while we're
  >>> in the early registration period).

That said, O'Reilly et al generally maintain admirable levels of
quality in their work and frequently look further than others in
their consideration of the second-order effects of their choices.
So, don't be too hard on them...
