How to Get Amazon Books Same Day For Free

February 24, 2009 | Comments Off on How to Get Amazon Books Same Day For Free

Warning:  I’m pretty sure this is wrong — potentially legally, but certainly ethically.

Everyone knows that when you buy a book, you can either pick it up at your local bookstore today or you can save around $10 on Amazon and get it delivered for free in a week or two.  But, there’s a sneaky way to get your book that same day while still paying the Amazon price.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Buy the book at Barnes and Noble / Borders / your local bookstore and save the receipt
  2. Order the same book on Amazon and get free delivery (which should be about a week or so)
  3. When the Amazon book arrives, return the Amazon book to your local bookstore

Note:  Make sure to confirm that the ISBN numbers are the same on the version you buy from Amazon and your local bookstore.

Yes, it’s wrong and it’s bad.  I don’t think people should do this; local bookstores are struggling as it is.  But, if you are in a bind of some reason, a literary emergency, this may be for you.

One last caution:  I can’t guarantee this will work for you, but I do know that it works.  Also, worst case scenario, you can just return the book to Amazon.
