I will admit, I’m madly in love with my Asus Transformer Tablet. I was at a conference recently for three days and while everyone around me had to close their laptops each morning after a few hours, I didn’t have to charge my tablet once the entire trip! The battery holds out for 18 hours of Facebook, tweeting, and notetaking. Plus, with the optional docking station it become a mini-laptop.

I got my new, but you can get a much better deal than me and pick up a a refurbished Asus 10.1 Inch Android Transformer Tablet TF101-X1 for only $269, normally $470! Add the optional keyboard docking station, normally $630 normally, for only $319 total.

Constantly rated one of the best Android tablets, you won’t regret it. It has a really great SuperNotes app for college students that allows you to quickly scribble notes. It can even do karaoke!

This deal a day is good nationwide and available through Wednesday, July 11, 2012 or while supplies last so HURRY!  Make sure you read all the fine print to make sure you understand the restrictions before you buy.

This sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Regardless of compensation, all opinions are 100% my own.

At college, I always bought used books at a store on the Ball State Campus.  I compared prices between the two local book stores and made sure to go early to get my books at the lowest possible price.  I thought I was being so frugal.

I don’t have kids in college yet, but I clearly remember the shock I felt when I saw that college textbooks were a lot more than any other book I’d ever bought in my entire life.  So, when my kids hit college, I don’t even want to image what that price will be!

A lot of bookstores, even those on campus, offer different options to help you save – buy new, buy used, rent new, or rent used.  So, you’d think that you’d get the best price right there, locally.  At least, that’s what I assumed.

When eCampus asked me to write a bit about saving money with services that let students rent college textbooks online, I was skeptical to be honest.  But, I tested it out by searching for books for a few basic classes and compared the prices at the bookstore I shopped at Ball State University to eCampus.

The truth was painful – I wasn’t so frugal after all.

Can you believe some of those price differences? And it seemed, at least for me, that the more advanced the courses got the more expensive the books were.  Especially, since most of those books weren’t available to rent or sometimes even used. But, on, it seemed the exact opposite for the books I searched.  Many that I would have to buy at the local bookstore, I could simply rent on eCampus for a fraction of the price.

Then there’s the end of the year.  I would always rush to sell my books to get money back, but sometimes those books weren’t being used again and they bookstore wouldn’t buy them.  I’d be stuck with a book, I’d probably never open again.  But, with eCampus, you aren’t stuck with books at the end of the year ever!  They always go back.  But, if you really want to sell used textbooks, you can do that on eCampus too!

Oh, and did I mention that shippings is FREE for all purchases of $59 or more? That’s about the costs of one college textbook, so it won’t be hard to hit that minimum.

What’s the most expensive textbook you bought in college?  Can you remember?
