Why you should purchase college books on Amazon? If you are a college student or a parent of a soon to be college student, you should consider exploring other venues to buy those college books. For me it was pretty simple, I had to purchase a book and when I look at the price of the book on campus, the cost was $230.00. Now, mind you I’ve been to college already, so I do know the “game”. I knew the book was way over-priced, so I decided to go to Amazon to see if the had the book. Sure enough…the book was available on Amazon…and guess what? The book was listed for less than $50.00.
When you purchase books, or any item for that matter, from Amazon I do recommend you take a few minutes to read everything about the item you are interested in. Read the reviews!!!!! Read about the sellers!!!! Inform yourself before making the final decision.
I ended up buying my college book, “Organizational Behavior 16th Edition” from Amazon. It was delivered in a timely manner, and I mean why in the world would I pay $230.00 when I can pay $48.00 for a lightly used book? Really, it’s a no-brainer. The book arrived today, in excellent condition. The only way I was able to tell it was not a brand new book was because of the corners of the book…they showed minimum wear and tear…when I said minimum…is like almost nothing!
I can appreciate a good deal, after all, attending college nowadays is super expensive, so let’s try to save a buck whenever possible. Another great thing to consider about Amazon…sell your books!!! Learn to use your books without writing or highlighting over them, that way you can sell them later and make some $$$$. Go to Amazon. com to learn more about selling your books…is quite simple, and if you start selling and you build up a good reputation…the buyers will keep coming.
