For the biggest textbook savings, buy early
Over the next few weeks we are going to be posting tips to help students find the cheapest textbooks on AbeBooks.
Today I want to explain why the early bird gets the cheapest textbooks. Just like with your local collage bookstore the cheapest books on AbeBooks are the used textbooks. These used textbooks are often 50% to 80% cheaper then their new counterparts, and are you best bet for saving the most money; which means everyone else will be gunning for the used copies as well.
Even though its only July check to see if your reading lists have been posted, the earlier you can order your textbooks the more money you will save.
The other bonus about buying early is you can order with standard shipping which also costs less!
