Better World Books: Flash Sale + Free Ship Extended

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy

UPDATE: Good news! For those of you who missed it yesterday this sale has been extended one more day- thru today, Tuesday October 30th! is having a Flash sale! They are offering up an additional 50% off when you buy 5 or more used books! Just add at least 5 used books to your cart and you will see the 50% Off discount plus FREE shipping automatically. Plus for every book purchase they will donate one to someone in need.

I am a big believer in used books. Why buy new when you can get them at a fraction of the actual retail cost? I typically shop the thrift stores for books- but it is wonderful and such a time saver to be able to easily look for what you want online!

Just go HERE to and then look for the image like the one above. Once you click on it you will be taken to a link where you can shop the sale going on. Sort by category or search for books. Add at least 5 from the sale to your cart and once you go to check out you will see the discount automatically applied and shipping will be FREE. 🙂

They have just a ton of books included in the deal and I was able to order 5 books that I know Austin will be thrilled with! I got 2 Magic Treehouse Research Guides, A book about Bald Eagles (he’s obsesssed lately ;)) a Junie B Jones, and a Nature Crafts book all for $10.85 shipped to my door! And I was thrilled that they accept PayPal as a payment method. 🙂

So take a look around HERE and see what you find! Happy book hunting folks! And for those of you who are new to shopping at Better World Books- take a look in the comments for reader Julie’s words of advice to newbies.

  1. The sale was extended through today. I just got 5 books for 11$ shipped! Thanks for introducing this to me!

  2. i ordered 2 books about gifted children (my 10 year old is in the talented and gifted class), goodnight moon that you posted about as my 18 month old is totally obsessed with the moon, a bbq cookbook for my hubby and a cake decorating book for myself for $9.95. I’m excited!!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love Better World Books — was able to score 10 children’s books for $20! For all the newbies out there…A few tips from ordering from them… they donate 1 book for every book you buy which I think is an awesome incentive in itself to use their service. Shipping takes approx. 1 week from ordering and if you are a newbie to buying used books, stay in the categories marked “like new” and “very good”. If I’ve gone beyond those categories, I’ve found I’m sometimes disappointed in the condition and can find them cheaper at local used book stores. They also ship books in a waterproof envelope… so if a slightly bent or deformed corner throws you in a tizzy you might want to keep shopping local 🙂 I appreciate the free shipping, however, since sites like can get expensive when ordering from multiple sources.
