A couple of weeks ago I ordered 4 books from CBD. I received them in a couple days and was very impressed with their prices and book condition. My question is do they ever have free shipping?

sometimes they run specials where if you order $35 or more you can get free shipping if you have a certain code.  i wish they had a deal like amazon, otherwise i'd be ordering from them more often

I recently placed a CBD order and didn't have any coupon codes. I googled CBD code, and found one for free shipping when you order $35. Retailmenot usually has them. There are some current ones on there right now.

I've been ordering from CBD for years and like it. Often times their prices beat Amazon. I always check this site for CBD coupons and discounts:

Thanks for the coupon codes! That really will help when I order more books to get the free shipping. It really is a great site.

Thanks so much Deborah! I will definitely be ordering books from there and get the free shipping.  I have looked all over the metro Detroit area bookstores for Christmas Homecoming by Debby Mayne and can't find it anywhere. I found it on CBD for $5.99! So, I will be ordering that book and more.Can't wait to start my ordering! Yay!

Is the free shipping code for online ordering only?

Deborah, that code must be valid only for one use because it wasn't valid for me.  I found one at the link Lisa provided; for free shipping on orders of $35 or more, use 289128CZ.  That worked for me.

Lots of books for 99 cents etc. I'm going to order a few books and will try Lisa and Valerie's free shipping code. I will let you know if it works.

*** Okay, I'm so very happy with this website! I just ordered 16 books, including a Vol. 1-3 set for the total of $69.56! Thank you so much Lisa and Valerie as I saved over $10.00 in shipping charges with your code!  Seven of the books that I ordered are wishlisted books on PBS. ***

I received my box today with beautiful books! I am very impressed with the condition of their brand new books, the prices, the packaging and the free shipping. I received several wishlist books and can't wait to read them. Wow, The Amish Christmas book is a beautiful looking book. Don't be surprised if someday you have a wishlist book that has been posted to your WL! If you haven't tried this website, take a look at it. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at their prices.

I have always been very pleased with my orders from them. Shipping is fast and I actually think their shipping is pretty reasonable (just even better if you get free shipping!).
