Before you go shopping, make sure you hit the internet for coupons. This weekend I needed a math book for the GMAT. Before I left the house, I Googled “Barnes and Noble in-store coupons” and “Borders in-store coupons”. I found a 20% off coupon for Borders. It saved me $5 on my book. There are tons of coupons out there on the net. If you are going to go anyways, might as well see if you can save a bit of green.
