Save a Buck: Holiday Book Bargains - AARP Bulletin Skip to content

It’s open enrollment season for Affordable Care Act health insurance! Here are 11 things you need to know.


Holiday Book Bargains

Whether you want to stuff stockings or feed your mind, ’tis the season for great deals on books.

If you preorder online through Wal-Mart, Target or Amazon, any of 10 eagerly awaited new hardcovers can be yours for $9. Wal-Mart offers free shipping and has also discounted, by 50 percent or more, some 200 other titles when ordered online.

Other ways to buy books for less:

  • Show your AARP card and save 35 percent on AARP-produced books and 10 percent on others when shopping at Borders or its subsidiary, Waldenbooks.


  • Check the online links to bargain books at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


  • At online book-swap sites such as PaperBackSwap, BookMooch, TitleTrader or Novel Action, you list books you own that can be swapped for others. Once a book on your list is requested, you get credits for titles you want.



  • Join AARP’s Savings Challenge to share your tips, track your savings and compete for prizes.
