Amazon does not offer personal service from trusted and experienced book specialists.
Bulk Bookstore's friendly, experienced Book Specialists are available via live chat, email and phone to answer questions and provide support. As a Bulk Bookstore customer, you will be communicated with every step of the way to ensure that you receive the books you need, when you need them at the lowest possible prices. If you need books for your classroom, business meeting, or special event you can be confident that great care will be taken to ensure that you Save, Smile and Repeat.
Amazon limits the quantities you can order.
Bulk Bookstore offers a low order minimum of 25 copies per title. Whether it's 25, 100, 250 or 2,500 copies, your book order can be easily filled. Choose from an extensive catalog of 3 Million titles of any currently published book.
If a book title is not limited on Amazon, you'll still run into limits with each individual seller and their inventory. For example, if you are interested in 125 copies in bulk from Amazon, your order may require 20 or 25 copies to be sourced from each seller. Working with multiple sellers for one order is not ideal. And, the pricing may vary between seller for the same book title. Buying books in bulk from Amazon is a complicated buying experience indeed.
Amazon used to be a focused online bookseller, but today books are just one product category among hundreds of others.
Bulk Bookstore is 100% focused on selling books in bulk, nothing else. And Bulk Bookstore prides itself on an exceptional customer experience. But don't take our word for it, read what over 17,000 customers have to say on independent review sites.
Amazon does not offer bulk discounts.
With Bulk Bookstore, the more you order, the less you pay, every day. Many online retailers do not offer special, wholesale pricing for bulk orders. As stated on Amazon's website, "We don't offer additional discounts on large orders of a single title. The discounts listed on our website apply to all customers - individual, educational, institutional, and business alike."
Amazon marketplace sellers may not offer new, authentic books.
All of the books Bulk Bookstore sells are brand new, authentic editions, packaged in their original publisher cartons. With the rise of counterfeit books on Amazon, it is more important than ever to be sure the books you order are authentic editions, packaged in their original cartons. Unlike other booksellers, Bulk Bookstore always confirms that stock is available immediately after your order is placed and offers alternative titles to replace any that may be unavailable.
Half the Price of Amazon, Free Shipping, a No Brainer!
The books were in brand new condition and arrived quickly with free shipping. The cost was exactly half of Amazon's list price. Bulk Bookstore has been helping our school save thousands of dollars.

Amazon could not compete with the price, nor deliver as quickly as Bulk Bookstore!
Amazon could not complete the first order, could not compete with the price, nor deliver as quickly. Bulk Bookstore has supplied and delivered for less money and in less time.

Huge Savings vs. Amazon!
I've been buying books on Amazon and my individual purchases cost me $9.00 per copy. Then I found Bulk Bookstore, and now my purchase of 25 copies cost me only $6.08 each. That's a huge savings! The whole shopping experience was great and the books were delivered as expected. I will be placing a new order again soon.

Amazon, and other bulk book sites, do not compare!
Bulk Bookstore had the best prices for my large order compared to other bulk book sites (including Amazon). The shipping was very fast, and the books arrived in excellent condition!
