New & Used Books
Bookfinder.com: need to get a reliable ISBN first from Amazon or similar. Remember it includes shipping. You can check prices without shipping if you plan to buy multiple items. Protip – bookfinder also gives you the buyback offer for a book so you can have an idea what you could resell for to a company (private always more $$)
Amazon and Target buy 2 get 1 free sales. These happen a couple times a year. Have your wishlists loaded as items sell out. Must do separate purchases to maximize the discount.
