DirectTextbook.comDirect Textbook is the fastest textbook and book price comparison site on the internet. We help you find the lowest prices on new & used textbooks before you buy! Our price search software compares dozens of discount book stores, used books stores, campus bookstores and other online book stores to find the lowest price available.

Caitlin writes on 2/3/2005, "I looked up about four different books on Amazon, and [directtextbook.com], and I also compared the prices with those of the bookstore here [at the University of San Diego], and I don't see much of a difference at all among all three places. The prices for new books were either identical, or off by not more than a dollar; however, the prices for used books are quite a bit cheaper on amazon than from the bookstore here (of course on amazon it says from whatever price it is and up, so I could end up paying the same amount that I paid here at USD). On the directtextbook website I didn't a price for used books, only new ones. Maybe they have a link for that, but I can't see one. Also, I've heard of www.half.com. the prices there are really really cheap, but I'm not really sure about that one."

Amazon.comAmazon.Com is unquestionably the Internet retailing leader.  They started selling books and have since branched out into music.  Nice features include a wide selection, reviews, and a special feature I haven't seen anywhere else: a list of related books -- "People who've bought this book have also bought these other books".  You might want to check out Amazon.com's "Daily Scoop" page for the latest news and listings.  Graeme has made some lists of books from the Amazon web site:
   The Starr Reading List
   Puffin Classics
   Magic Attic Club

Reel.com85,000 movies for sale.  Some good bargains -- for example, Titanic, which has a $30 suggested retail and a $20 minimum advertised price was offered for $9.99 for orders placed before the 9/1/98 release date.  Reel.com was bought up by Hollywood Entertainment in 1998.

Auctions / Name-Your-Price

 

Z-AuctionJust as Amazon took the Internet world of book retailing by storm, Ebay is the sudden new leader in the Internet world of auctions.
priceline, where you name the priceName your price.   It started with airline tickets.  Now they're offering cars this way.  If a major supplier wants to sell it to you at that price, you've got a deal.  Both the pricing concept and the business model are patented.  In the future, they expect to offer consumer services such as home mortgages, insurance, personal computers, telecommunications, hotels, cruises, credit cards and much more!
