Books-a-Million has a great Bargain Books Section on their website.  They update it every few days with a new batch of books.  Currently there are many children’s books that start at $1.77 each.

You can also get free shipping if you use the code BKLVFREE. These would make great stocking stuffers!!

To help you search, sort the list by price and it will show the cheapest items first.

      Just order some books and got the shipping taken off the cost of the purchase. Promotion code works!

    • Lara

      Where do you put the promo code? I only see one option to do it (enter it in the “coupon section,” and it also asks for a PW. Am I doing something wrong?

      • Lara

        Never mind. I figured it out. I got rerouted to another place on ebates. I’m “so blond” sometimes!

    • Hilary

      Umm was it just me or was it hard for anyone else to find the Childrens Book section? I tried Juvenile Fiction but it was mostly for older children… Anyone know where the younger childrens books are?

        I couldn’t find any either.

    • Just a warning– the quality of the very low price books is not gift-worthy in my opinion. I ordered a month or two ago and was SO excited to get books at such a great price, and I still think they are worth what I paid, but the covers a less than perfect and they all have a black strike through on the binding. I contacted customer service and they offered a refund (they said the strike through is to prevent returns in store) but it wasn’t worth the hassle.

      There is also a rewards site called QuickRewards (quickrewards.net). They give 2.3% cashback for Books a Million, and you can cash out whenever you want — no minimum. Additionally, when the cashback doesn’t show up, their customer support is great. You just forward your order confirmation, and they will manually credit it to your account. I’ve never had a problem with them.

      NOTE: Many of the rebate sites will NOT give you a rebate if you use a coupon or promo code that is not listed on the rebate site. I’m sure it’s part of their deal with the retailers.
