College book stores price match. Who knew?

April 10th, 2018 at 01:07 pm

I had a snafu with the last textbook I purchased online from Amazon. On the cover it clearly stated that it was intended for international students and not those in the US or Canada. Boo. I was so happy to get it at a reasonable price; after all the angst, I was able to use it in class and cannot quite actually determine what the differences in the text books are.

I was on campus at the bookstore today for the textbook for the two-weekend seminar upcoming. They only had new books for $105. While being helped, I said I could probably find it cheaper on Amazon, to which the worker said they price match. I ended up with the text book for $73.00 out the door. I was happy with that.

Who knew that they price match? I also found out that the eye doctor sells the contact lens boxes at warehouse club prices. I suppose it always helps to ask if they price match.

I guess this qualifies as "Saving while spending". I will need to Whack a Mole for this puchase (I am $23 short from the EXTRANEOUS FUND). But its fine. Spending across all other categories is at expected or less.

    Oh wow! Fantastic. We buy most standard books on Amazon for my daughter, but the ones she buys at the local bookstore are usually ones written by professors at the university. But I did a search and found that her bookstore will match a few select stores, including Amazon. So thanks for the tip!

    Can you resell the book?

    I think I will most likely keep these for references. They are concise overviews; though I may consider parting with the methods of research textbook. I don't plan on meandering in academia longer than necessary; this is a grab and go graduate-certificate. The experience in seminary sort of ruined it for me.
