School Supply Bundles and Supplies For College Students

Updated on June 9, 2015

Amazon Book Bundles

College is an expensive investment, there is no doubting that. As a College student myself, I look for the best deals at the best price. And bundles of any kind are a students best friend.

I have listed what I have found to be the best bundles available and that I have personally used. That way there is no gimmick and no bull, as I can guarantee it is worth the investment.

Other than the tuition itself, books are probaly the most expensive cost of college. And the sad thing is, it is a must! Some things you can get away with not having, such as a laptop or backpack, but books are a must!

Although Amazon doesn't have all the books you need bundled, you can find school books a lot cheaper. Buying new or used books from Amazon saves you anywhere from 5-30%! And what's better is that when you are through, they will buy them back. Every semester I used to sell my books back to the school and every semester I would have left over books because the school decided to use a different version or I got paid nickels compared to the actual cost. I classmate of mine said to start buying and selling my books at Amazon. I did and saved so much money.

For instance, I needed the book The Elements of Moral Philosophy 5th edition by James Rachels. Anyone has read this book knows it's only about 200 pages and costs about $75.00and $45.00 used! I bought it at Amazon for $7.00.  I think the choice is clear where to buy your books.
