Are you a die-hard Colleen Hoover fan who’s worn through their Reese Witherspoon book club picks?
If so, getting your fix of the author’s signature romantic suspense can cost more than just your wallet.
Binge-reading Colleen Hoover novels often mean outrunning library check-out dates – unless you know how to make the best of free resources and budget-friendly options.
In this article, we’ll look at all the creative ways readers can enjoy every word without breaking the bank.
So buckle up for some binge-reading bliss and get ready to feed your obsession affordably!
#1. Keep Watch for Sales with BookBub
BookBub is an app that alerts users to discounts on books from all genres, with notifications sent straight to your device.
Take advantage of their wide selection of deals and watch for Colleen Hoover’s work when the price is right!
#2. Use Gift Cards
This is really two tips in one.
First, it piggybacks off the idea above. If you have a cash back credit card that offers bonus cash back at grocery stores, you can buy gift cards at the store, earn bonus cash back, and then use the gift card to buy the book.
For example, if your credit card offers 5% cash back at grocery stores and you buy a $25 gift card, you are paying $23.75 for the gift card.
The other option is to join sites where you can earn free gift card. You can earn points for watching videos, playing games, and surfing the internet and then turn those points into gift cards.
#3. Post On Facebook
If the idea about visiting yard sales is too much work, post in local Facebook groups, asking if anyone read any Colleen Hoover books and is willing to let you borrow it or sell it.
While you might get a smaller discount if it was at a yard sale, you should still be able to get a significant discount.
#4. Ask For The Book As A Gift
Is a holiday or birthday coming, and your family or friends ask you for ideas?
Tell them you want Colleen Hoover books as a gift.
While you might not get all the novels you want, you will get a few for free.
The library is the gold standard for saving money on books.
Depending on your library, you can borrow a book for a few weeks or up to a month.
And even though some of Collen Hoover books are new, your local library should still be able to get a copy if it participates in exchanges with other libraries.
#6. Swap With Friends
Have friends who love Collen Hoover books as well? Agree to swap them when you are finished reading them.
The more friends you have, the more books you can swap, saving everyone more money.
#7. Use Cash Back Websites
If you enjoy shopping online, take advantage of online shopping portals like Swagbucks or Rakuten.
In both cases, you first visit these sites, and then they redirect you to Barnes and Noble or your preferred bookstore.
When you make a purchase, you earn cash back, sometimes up to 25%!
Combine this with your cash back credit card, and you could save a lot of money.
#8. Look For Colleen Hoover Books At Yard Sales
This tip is hit or miss, as you never know what you might find at a yard sale.
But if you see an ad for a sale that mentions books, it could be worth your time.
If you are lucky enough to find a novel, odds are you can get it for a few bucks, saving yourself a lot of money.
#9. Opt For The Kindle Version
If you aren’t strict about the format of your book, the best way to save money is to buy the Kindle versions on Amazon.
For example, as of this writing, the paperback version of It Ends With Us: Special Collector’s Edition is $22.50 on Amazon, and the hardcover is $20.28.
But the Kindle version is $12.99.
You could sign up for the Kindle Unlimited plan to save even more money, but this is only ideal if you enjoy reading many books on an e-reader.
Another option, if you are an audiobook person, is to get that version. With a trial membership to Audible, you get the book for free.
When some people finish reading their book, they might sell it on eBay.
This allows you to get a used version at a discounted price.
Of course, you need to consider the book’s condition and the shipping cost to ensure you are saving money.
#11. Use Cash Back Credit Cards
This is an outside-the-box idea. If you have a credit card that offers cash back or rewards points, use it to buy the books online or in a bookstore.
While you won’t be getting a discount on the price, you can turn the points or cash back you earn into something else.
