Books are usually a popular choice for gifts at Christmas and Birthdays – but where is the cheapest place to buy books online for people living in Ireland?
We did a quick price comparison on 5 books at Amazon , Easons and The Book Depository. The prices were checked in the first week of July 2017 – so may have changed since then. The books were randomly chosen – although there were a couple of Irish interest books thrown in to possibly give Easons a better chance .
All prices are based on getting free delivery.
Amazon offer free delivery to Ireland on orders over £25. (If books are sold by Amazon)
Easons offer free delivery in Ireland on orders over €10
The Book Depository offer free delivery to Ireland on all orders.
|What Happened that Night||£14.99||€11.24||£7.15|
|Into the Water||£9.99||€11.24||£11.06|
|Cooking for Family & Friends||£9.99||€14.24||£9.99|
The UK prices were converted using a rate of €1.13 to the Pound
As you can see from the list above – Amazon came out as the cheapest online bookshop of the 3 we compared.
It was only €3.29 cheaper than Easons but €10 cheaper than The Book Depository.
Obviously – a selection of 5 books cannot be treated as a full and proper comparison – but it is a good guide to where you are likely to make big savings on books.
