Discussion
New Books
Amazon Prime: need it now regardless of price
Book Outlet or KidsBooks.com: limited title selection. Create wishlist, emails when available, need $35 to free ship (otherwise $5 to US/CAN)

Used Books
See our episode on finding used curriculum. All of those methods are applicable here
Local resale: thrift, facebook marketplace, offerup, library book sales, used bookstore

New & Used Books
Bookfinder.com: need to get a reliable ISBN first from Amazon or similar. Remember it includes shipping. You can check prices without shipping if you plan to buy multiple items. Protip - bookfinder also gives you the buyback offer for a book so you can have an idea what you could resell for to a company (private always more $$)

Sales
Amazon and Target buy 2 get 1 free sales. These happen a couple times a year. Have your wishlists loaded as items sell out. Must do separate purchases to maximize the discount.
