Wow! Finally a website where some third party sellers offer free shipping for their used books online—plus, how to get free shipping on new book orders under $25.
FREE IS GOOD | While both Indigo.ca and Amazon.ca offer free shipping on the books you purchase through their companies when you spend a minimum $25, the same is not true for used books they list that are offered by third party sellers. These books always come with an added shipping cost, making what might look like a steal of a deal anything but once these extra charges are tacked on.
This is why I was happy to learn that AbeBooks—an online company started in Canada that facilitates the sale of new, used and rare books; audiobooks; and textbooks from independent booksellers worldwide—has many third party sellers with free shipping deals to Canada.
Unlike most other online bookstores, AbeBooks does not offer overnight shipping, but they do have free shipping to Canada on more than six million titles, with no minimum order requirements.
How To Get Free Shipping Through Indigo
While Indigo.ca charges shipping on all online new book orders under $25, they do waive the shipping charges if you are willing to pick up your purchase at the nearest Indigo store. I was happy to learn that.— Ruth Rainey
