A tip from other readers: If you have kids heading to school (or know someone who does), this is worth checking out, as we continue to hear from readers who tell us about the money they’ve saved on college books by ordering textbooks through this program. It‘s normally $79 for 12 months of Amazon “Prime” 2-day shipping benefits & this deal gets students 6 months of “Prime” shipping for FREE (with no other obligation which is nice).
This continues to get our pass-along worthy “seal of approval.”
Save a Bundle This Semester on Textbooks
Amazon is offering college students FREE 2-day shipping on all purchases of textbooks (and anything else that Amazon sells), and enrollment is FREE to students for 6 months! Plus Amazon offers various other programs that will help you save on college costs including:
- Amazon’s Textbook store. Find thousands of college textbook titles available ~ up to 30% OFF new bookstore prices and up to 90% OFF used textbooks ~ potentially saving hundreds of dollars on your book tab.
- Kindle e-Textbook rental store.
