I’m a little embarrassed to say that I hadn’t heard about A1books.com. Since I sell used books online, and I’m always looking for a great deal, I should have this website bookmarked. I don’t know how I overlooked this website, but now that it’s on my radar screen, it will be one of the sites I check regularly when I’m looking for a good deal on books, electronics, music, and games.
A1books has been selling books online since 1995 and has served over 4 million customers. They are one of the largest Amazon marketplace partners and one of the deepest discount booksellers online today offering up to 50% OFF on books. A1Books delivers over 1 million titles ranging from bestsellers to textbooks to technical books like medical and law books at the lowest prices. Plus you can save with A1books’ low shipping costs.
In addition to their low cost on books, A1books offers the hottest electronics, music, and games at the greatest discounts. I personally love deals on electronics because I’m a big fan of arbitrage; I buy low from one website, and sell for a profit on another!
SELLING ON A1BOOKS
A1books also offers book sellers the opportunity to list their inventory with them. Since launching A1Marketplace in October, 2004 they have received an overwhelming response and boast of more than 4,000 sellers and growing. Since they’re affiliated with Amazon as a marketplace partner, I plan on checking into this, but right now I’m satisfied with selling my used books on Amazon.
SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR STUDENTS
Also, students using .edu email addresses for an A1books account creation, get an additional 5% off textbooks and more by using their .edu email address.
A1BOOKS’ CUSTOMER SERVICE
As far as A1books’ customer service goes…the ratings are mixed. I did a search on Google for “A1books review” and found some complaints from buyers who purchased from them. However, there were good reviews as well. I think (and you’ll probably agree with me on this) that people who have a poor buyer experience are the ones that make the most noise. Satisfied buyers don’t feel the need to say anything.
I’ve made it known in previous articles that I’m a big fan of Amazon.com, however when it comes to finding lower prices on products that I may want for myself, or to sell for a profit, I’m open to a new buyer experience. A1books.com is definitely on my list of websites to visit on a regular basis!
