This solution may give a little more work because it implies an initial research, but the cost is minimal and we do not need to use the credit card to get discount, nor do we need to return to the commercial surface in order to use the discount . It saves your wallet and still saves the environment.

Large Surfaces Have Largest Market Share

Unfortunately, “competition laws” do not work in the schoolbook market. There is simply no competition in the distribution, with the maximum discounts being 10% on the sale price. There are some promotional campaigns that end up bringing with you some hidden dangers.

The biggest discount for the purchase of schoolbooks is currently achieved in Jumbo. If you place your order in the next few days you will be able to have access to a 10% discount plus 5%. But only if you make the payment with the Jumbo card (a credit card).

Being a purchase with a credit card and if you do not make 100% debt repayment, you will pay interest on the purchase. And in this case, the additional saving of 5% may be significantly lower, or even negative, if you choose to pay interest on the card.Ultimately, this “discount” of 5% ends up acting as a decoy to attract the least attentive. They charge interest to the customer without his realizing it.

In the case of the continent, the discount offered is only 10% in card. You do not have a direct discount on the value of schoolbooks, you will always have to return to the continent to use the discount amount. This situation does not happen with the other institutions that also offer a discount of 10%, as in the case of Fnac, the discount is direct.

An alternative solution to the acquisition of school textbooks are exchange banks. There are more and more options for parents to get school textbooks at zero price or at a nominal cost, provided that at the end of the school year they return the schoolbooks in good condition. Simply search on Google for “Book Exchange” and find various communities and organizations sharing and exchanging books. Some are even municipalities.

This solution may give a little more work because it implies an initial research, but the cost is minimal and we do not need to use the credit card to get discount, nor do we need to return to the commercial surface in order to use the discount .
