During my son, Taylor’s New Student Orientation at UNL, I received this free tshirt from the Nebraska Bookstore. I was hoping to get the other design, something about “the best things in bed are between the covers” – get your mind out of the gutter, they were talking about books. Instead I got this one about “going green” which I believe has less to do with the eco-system, and more about saving money since the Nebraska Bookstore offers to beat the prices of the University Bookstore. And we all know I’m all about saving money!
When Taylor got an email from the University Bookstore offering “a pre-populated shopping cart based on your submitted classes,” I clicked on the link to do some price comparison. The Nebraska Bookstore let me input the class ID numbers and showed the same books. Yes, they were a dollar or two cheaper, but out of stock on some of them. Being the online shopping guru that I am, I set out to find the books even cheaper! I ended up saving almost 50% off college textbooks! It took a bit of research as UNL didn’t specify the ISBN numbers, and I had to make sure I had the right editions, but I think the extra time was worth my savings.
But thanks for the free shirt! Speaking of free shirts, I need to get some more smiley face tees printed up to give out – anyone have any recommendations for cheap screen-printers?
