Alibris: Coupons

I have been textbook shopping, quite successfully (finally) I might add... and have been sent a whole bunch of Alibris coupons. Alibris is a US company (warning) but for the last year it has been cheaper for me to buy my textbooks abroad than at home. I have done my book shopping for the semester and some of these coupons are going to expire soon so I thought I would throw them out to you guys!

Use one of these coupons:


  • Discount: $5 off $25 US
  • Coupon Code: BRAVE
  • Expires: August 24, 2010


  • Discount: $15 off $100 US
  • Coupon Code: WORLD
  • Expires: August 24, 2010


  • Discount: $3 off $30 US
  • Coupon Code: Hepburn
  • Expires: August 31, 2010


  • Discount: $5 off $50 US
  • Coupon Code: Hendrix
  • Expires: August 31, 2010


  • Discount: $3 off $30 US
  • Coupon Code: Hitchcock
  • Expires: September 3, 2010


  • Discount: $5 off $50 US
  • Coupon Code: Sinatra
  • Expires: September 3, 2010

Two odd things with Alibris: the amount in your cart has to be equal to $25 US for say the first coupon to be used (so about $28 Canadian) and then the coupon discount will be $5 US or the equivalent in Canadian. However, your cart amount will be in Canadian and you will be billed in Canadian dollars. It will be from across the border as I understand so be careful of duty charges. Shipping was around $11 to Canada.

All together, with the discount coupon I used, and with shipping and such it was around $12 cheaper buying one of my textbooks used through Alibris, and $47 cheaper buying the other one than to buy it used, up here.
