Best Time to Buy and Sell College Textbooks

Postby cheap-textbooks » Mon Aug 13, 2012 6:45 pm

It is that time of the year again, when scholars across the nation stand by to spend significant cash on university textbooks. But to get the very best deals on both purchasing books for the approaching semester and selling your old texts it could be worth paying closer attention to when you shop and sell.

A research by Extrabux, a cash-rebate Internet site, revealed that the most suitable time for scholars to purchase and offload textbooks was from August Twenty to August Twenty-six, as well as Jan. Seven thru Jan. Thirteen.

The most awful time to do it was from November Nineteen to Twenty-five and April nine thru the fifteen ( which appears to synchronize with spring break ).

The explanation is easy. It all traces back to the fundamentals of demand and supply. The perfect time to buy textbooks, the research found, is when demand's heavy. "We discovered that the costs of many products sold online will lessen as the amount of purchasers trying to find those products increases," declared Jeff Nobbs, founder of Extrabux. "Online outlets / sellers need their costs to be as low as practical when there are the most buyers in the market hunting for their products." He announced the site looked at historic search trends for textbooks as well as price information thru camelcamelcamel.com, which tracks price fluctuations from Amazon.com outlets. The site also discovered that the perfect time to sell is when demand's heavy and supply is low. "This means scholars will get the maximum cash for their books if they sell them when there are more folk purchasing instead of selling textbooks," he announced. Actually scholars can get up to twenty p.c more by selling in the right months, specifically July, Aug and Jan . Except for timing, you must also know the best place to look for the best bargains.
