If you have had the chance to read one of my previous posts: “4 series I want to start or finish this year!”, you might understand better this. The same friend that recommended “The Giver Quartet” is the same friend that told me about this site where one can buy books at a discounted price, and there was when the curiosity killed the credit card. I had to check it out, and when I did, I bought around 10 books for $30… YES, TEN BOOKS FOR $30!
It is a good deal! And I have found and bought really good books for an amazing price! “Noggin”: $2.99, “Everything I never told you”: $5.94, the complete Harry Potter series (I bought them on Amazon but they were the seller), so yes, they do offer ready good deals.
I am trying to get out of this story is the shipping costs… I am not entirely sure how this is calculated and its fairness… But in order to buy the 7 Harry Potter books for $30, I was supposed to pay $56 of shipping, and THAT my readers, it is just way too much! Yes, I am saving on the items but spending it on shipping. In Amazon, however, the shipping was $26… do you see my point?
There are only 2 sites that I visit to buy books: Amazon.com and Bookoutlet.com. I will set the example with those two, and I am going to talk about International shipping. If you are in the US or in Canada, you might not find the shipping cost relevant, but it will give you a glimpse of the beauty of saving money.
So I tested it out:
- Fates and Furies (Hardcover) $10.98 + Schizo (Hardcover) $14.17 + Somebody Up There Hates You (Paperback) $9.88 = $35.03 + International shipping ($22.52) = $57.55.
- Fates and Furies (Hardcover) $8.99 + Schizo (Hardcover) $2.99 + Somebody Up There Hates You (Paperback) $3.99 = $15.97 + International shipping ($25.69) = $41.66.
You see? $15.89 in savings!
Usually, the shipping fee on Bookoutlet is going to a little bit higher than on Amazon. HOWEVER, the price of the books on Bookoutlet is lower than on Amazon. This really depends on the book and what the Bookoutlet considers “discounted” price. For example, the difference in “Fates and Furies” is only $2, so if you buy the book alone in Amazon, you will be paying $11.98 in shipping, but on Bookoutlet the shipping is $17.46.
This is just the case of my country. I am not saying that it will be the same for everybody, and I have no preference on either page as I equally have used both… but my point is: investigate, surf, make the math, check your bank statement, and keep looking because the princes change on both sites, and you might find amazing deals on both of them.
