I’m very tempted. Afterall, it is an Australian site, so I win all the way. Shipping and Postage will be cheaper from the start, so even if the actual product is more expensive, it will still get to me sooner and at half the cost of Postage and handling. It’s a win-win situation!
See you over Fishpond.com.au. Thanks to Shai Coggins for showing us the link!
You’re welcome, Stephen. I’m glad you found it useful.
I find that it is pretty much cheaper in most books. But, I often do a comparison still. And, with some of the higher-priced books (eg textbook-type resources), Amazon still wins at times. I haven’t tried asking them to beat the price, though. But yeah, for the most part, I’ve shifted over to Fishpond – even though shipping times still vary. Majority of my online book shopping has been on Fishpond nowadays, especially because they accept Paypal – and they’re Oz-based. :-)
Let me know how it works for you!
