How the internet changed textbook buying

Postby cheap-textbooks » Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:22 am

If you are a college or university student is you know are associated with buying textbooks. Not long ago, we would have to stroll into the campus bookstore to find your books. BIf you're lucky the bookstore had a small body of the used books that were slightly cheaper and many times you're stuck with buying a new book at suggested retail or maybe even higher. Then about 10 years ago Amazon Barnes & Noble and other websites came online. These online websites allowed you the convenience of ordering from your dorm room and having the books delivered directly to you. Some of these websites started offering books for less than the suggested retail price creating a path for savings. Then and other sites and started offering used books for sale at a discount. Awesome!
As more sites came online in competition increased as well as the discounts. The problem is that with so many sites you never know if you are getting the best price. Granted, it's pretty easy to sit down at a computer with a notepad and do multiple searches online to find the best price you can for what you need. I remember spending 30 min. per book searching out prices from all the sites I knew of.
The desire to find the cheapest site without having to search for hours on end resulted in little search widget report all the booksellers inventory and prices. This site lets you find college books online the easy way – a one stop price comparison shop!
The beauty is that whether you are in the market to rent or buy textbooks, this site has you covered. You'll see prices from all around the web – from sites who are offering used textbooks for sale, international editions for sale, textbook rental, and even downloadable digital textbooks.
Turnover a dozen sites renting textbooks was another dozen offering digital downloads along with the 30+ sites selling new and used textbooks. With prices changing due to supply and the demand the site that is cheapest today may not even have the book in stock tomorrow. The beauty of a textbook price comparison site that you know you're getting the best deal available.
We do not sell textbooks, we show you the cheapest sources
