not a bad deal for college students. I have a bunch of gift cards to B&N, use them to order text books (you don't really need em the first week of class anyway and it only takes a few days to come in), and get the free DVD.

Also, I've had plenty of classes that required 5-6 or more books we never even opened 2 or 3 of em. If that happens, or you drop the class, you can return them within the 30 days for full refund if you can use that free DVD thing at the store. If you do it online, you can only return the books to the store for store credit.

Wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy them used at your school's bookstore? Comparing B&N's prices and the used ones at my school's bookstore, it seems like lots of DVDs could be purchased with the money saved from buying them used as opposed to new. I understand at this point, some titles can't be found used, but I usually don't have a lot of trouble picking up most of my books used.

Naturally, now that I've said that, I'll go in tomorrow and find that I can't get any of the books used.
