Buying on Amazon pre Black Friday.

I know nothing about Amazon or Black Friday. I have to buy a book order of c. $250 worth of various books. Is there any possibility of a break on prices by wiating until Black Friday rather than ordering NOW?
Thanks.
I'm glad that I finally found the button.......

Yea amazon has pretty much all the titles, but not the lowest price.
Have you thought visiting your local library site and just reserve the titles? You can borrow it and read it.

My experience is it was slightly more expensive to buy textbooks during the starting of the semester. They used to be cheaper at anytime; may be the publisher received complaints from the university bookstore.

Text book is not accepted by them due to copyright or some other weird regulations.

I was donating my $1700 worthy textbook to public library.
Been asked to take them back or library have to destroy them.

The best they can do is probably a blanket discount on books, but I don't recall seeing them doing so.

Also check other places like Indigo to see if they have it? Indigo seems to offer discounts more frequently. You can also get cashback from Rakuten and similar places.

Install the keepa plugin and see if the price of what you are looking for dropped last BF. I doubt there are sales on books on BF.
