How to order from Amazon without large shipping costs.

ginjjDecember 29, 2008

I haven't been able to figure out how to order books from Amazon without ending up with a large shipping cost. I guess if I found books from Amazon itself that would be a single charge but I don't see how to search for just books available through Amazon. At times I've tried to look at a seller's offerings but find they don't have but one book I want.

Today I had 6 books in my basket. The shipping cost was almost the cost of the books.

Thanks for any tips,

Hi! If you narrow your search to books then by department say Home and Garden, scroll down on the left side to shipping options and choose Super Saver Shipping. This will narrow down the selections to those that have free shipping (usually with 25.00 purchase) through Amazon. Otherwise I just try and choose books that are really cheap through the sellers, like 3.99 and pay the 3.99 for shipping. Sometimes it's cheaper and the books are usually in good condition.
