I just hate even stepping foot into our college bookstore because I am soooo tired of being royally ripped off, so I decided to go on a search for reasonably priced textbooks and here's a few sites I found. campusi.com - great price comparisons bigwords.com - also price comparisons I also got coupon codes to these sites that I used so I know that they work. textbookx.com - use jen_2006 and get free shipping and an entry to win 500 bucks. valorebooks.com - use the code 5OFF and get 5% off of any order. This is all I got so far but if anyone has any other sites I would greatly apprechiate sharing because I am obviously a broke college kid just trying to save a few bucks. THX

Yup. in our school somebooks are so expensive but when you buy outside it is just cheap. I hate it because i kept on buying inside because its more easier.

ohhhh I'm hoping that people will wake up and see that the books stores are actually ripping them off so bad that they start buying online and eventually put them out of business but I think that's just wishful thinking. Oh and I accidentily mistyped the coupon code from above... the one from valorebooks.com is actually 5OFFNOW. thx for your input.

I agree with you. The bookstores charge way too much for textbooks. You can find some great deals on textbooks at half.com. I have found some that are half the price of the bookstore. I think it may not be too long before the bookstores are out of business since you can find great deals online.
