I heard the shipping cost are huge though for stuff from Amazon and other site depending on how much you buy, price etc...
Lots of our Univ textbooks are $40 cheaper online then in the bookstore but the shipping cost is very expensive and in the end you really only save several dollars and you gotta wait for the shipping, compared to walk to the bookstore, paying and getting your book right away, it's also a lot safe if your aren't comfortable with online shopping or don't have this so called "credit" card. No idea what it is, anyone know?
