Book Outlet

I knew that Book Outlet existed, but I never felt compelled to check it out until I heard it mentioned over, and over again by Booktubers. When I saw their massive book hauls through Book Outlet, and witnessed the perfect condition of the books arriving, I knew that I had to check it out for myself. Book Outlet sells new books for a fraction of the price, between 50% to 90% off of the original sale list, the only downfall being either a small line or dot marked in marker, typically located on the bottom pages of the book. Book Outlet receives their books through publishers who sell them their returns or excess of inventory and the mark is to ensure that these books are not returned to the publishers.

I probably wouldn't purchase a well beloved title through Book Outlet, but it is perfect for those types of books that you would possibly like to own but wouldn't want to spend a lot of money on.

Book Outlet changes everyday too. If you put something in your cart, don't expect it to still be available the following day. They have limited quantities, and when those are sold out they are no longer available. And everyday they offer new selections. Makes it very addicting.

I put my first order in today. They are having a sale Friday through Sunday this week where you get $5.00 off of your order. I also believe that when you make a purchase you receive a coupon for $5.00 off your next order in alongside with your books. I ordered eleven books, six of which are hardcovers, for $45.39 - $40.39 after using the coupon code for $5.00 off. Shipping came out to be $8.49 for a grand total of $48.88 on this order. Their shipping rates are $3.99 for the first two books and $0.50 for every book after that. So you save on shipping when you purchase larger quantities of books. Remember, these books are near perfect condition, so $40.00 for eleven books is a pretty great deal. According to Book Outlet I saved $162.49 in discounted books.

I will feature a book haul here on my blog when my order arrives. I eagerly await them.
