    For any college kids, or anyone with a .edu email to help you save money

    So now that im a freshmen i just bought all my books and saved probably 400 dollars on amazon. id suggest anyone buying college books to use chegg or amazon as its much cheaper than buying from your college's bookstore. I have a referral link i am going to post but what it does is, if you have a .edu email address it will give you 6 months of free amazon student which is like prime. and ontop of that when your amazon student runs out in 6 months it says you can get amazon prime at half the cost (yes i am trying to get you to use my referral link as it gives me 5 dollars per person but it also basically gets you free prime for 6 months.) So if you havent done this yet and want free amazon student, i would prefer you use my recuitment link but you can also just go on amazon and sign up if you dont feel like getting me 5 dollars haha

    I'll probably end up signing up, thanks.
    Unfortunately like 3 of my books are specific to my college and I can't find them online. Sigh.

    I mean you can rent some books and have to send them back at the end of the semester but guess what? They provide you the box to send it back in, and postage so not that bad (besides some books even send you a check with your money back that you spent renting the book, was more like collateral). Oh and the best part? I ordered 5 of the math books i needed last semester and sold them back to my school for a 50$ profit each. LOL. I sold back so many they stopped accepting them from other people within the first day.

    Haha its definitely worth keeping in mind! You can even make a profit if you figure out which books to buy and sell to your college bookstore. xD

    Ughhh I hate that shit so much!
    The worst is when a teacher uses their own book, ten never references it at all. Like.. That's for making me waste $200 on your shitty book! -_-
