Default Can you send used books from Amazon?

I know Amazon is an approved vendor, but when you purchase used books are they actually shipped from Amazon? Looking at their website, I think that they just act as a mediator. Wouldn't want to save a few bucks and then have him not be able to get the book.

Only new ones.. The used books come from people trying to sell their books they've read and are in good shape--BUT they're not from Amazon. wish we could. I would've been able to save lots by now...

I've sent hardcover too....

And I always look at the used books for myself on Amazon, but after the $4 shipping, most of the time, the new one is a better deal because Amazon ships for free if you spend $25, which is SUPER easy.

You might want to look at Edward R Hamilton for cheaper books too. They don't have as large of a selection, but they do have good ones... cheap. And a flat shipping rate.

Default Amazon shipping

I know they will ship for Free if you spend over $ 25 . I use Amazon a LOT so I buy the Annual @ $ 119.00 For me It works I can watch any of the Movies .No Fee for shipping As long as it Prime . No spending $ 25 If you think it Balances in your Favor It may be worth spending The $ 119. Get a few others to go in it with you My Brother & I went in together !/2 the Cost. Something to Think about. Cause it does Take Lots of Money sending Books to Our Family Behind Bars
