Save on state sales tax. If you buy from a third-party seller, you may not have to pay sales tax on your purchases. You will, however, have to report these to the IRS when you do your year-end taxes.
Students can save with Amazon and Amazon Prime. University students may be able to save money on textbooks by searching for the book in an Amazon website located in a foreign country. Savings may well pay for the increased shipping costs. Students can also receive six months’ worth of membership in Amazon Prime absolutely free. Just don’t forget to cancel at the end of that time period to avoid paying the additional membership fee. You’ll need to provide your university email address to qualify.
