Comparison shop for college textbooks – save lots of $$$
If you’re in college you’re probably short on money. Instead of buying what’s at the bookstore (and spending $130 on a book that they won’t let you sell back) have you tried comparison shopping?
Continuing from my posts last fall and spring on the exorbitant price of textbooks in this country, I thought I’d share some helpful resources with you.
For example, did you know that you can save up to %90 if you buy the international edition instead of the US edition?
Take a look at this website – http://www.campusx.com/college-textbooks/
It’s got a free eBook that has great ideas on how to save load of money on your textbooks, as well as some sites that might offer you some good deals.
The important thing to remember is to shop around. Don’t assume your bookstore is the best deal, it’s probably not. And remember, your professor may get a kickback if enough of a certain textbook are sold, meaning he’s more likely to list it on the book list. That’s not to say it’s a bad textbook, you just need to be careful what you spend on it.
