Bargain Hunting

Post by Sadohara » Sun Jan 03, 2010 6:19 pm

So let's say that I wanted to buy some RPG books. Who amongst you has a few tips for hunting down good sales on the internet? And where (and when) can one find discount prices at FLGSes?

Love,

Sadohara

Depending on what you're looking for, eBay can be a good place for bargains. Also, the Amazon Marketplace can be a source of bargains.

Bookfinder.com's a pretty good price comparison site for books too.

Keep on eye out at rpg.net as people will sell or trade books for cheap.

Most of what i use has already been covered, but I'll second http://bookfinder.com (shows shipped prices, very important when shopping on the internet) as well as google product search and ebay.
