Deal Details

The wife and I both got this e-mail from Half Price Books Marketplace [hpbmarketplace.com]. For "Cyber Monday", one day only:

1-Day Only Monday November 28
Free Standard Shipping No Coupon Needed

HPB Marketplace is a repository of used books sellers, some as low as $0.99. Standard shipping is usually $3.99 for the 1st book, and $2.19 for each additional. So if you find the books you want for a dollar, your prices are:

1 book - $0.99 (save $4)
2 books - $1.98 (save $6)
10 books - $10 (save $23)

Thumbs up and repped--this is an incredible deal if it works for items sold by independent sellers (not sure how they could even do that?). I have a bunch of items in my shopping cart and I'll give it a shot when midnight rolls around.

The will likely just give the seller a credit on the shipping so that they don't get burned on it.
