QuickBooks- found it! - Posted by Pam WA

I posted a question about where to buy Quickbooks cheap- here’s what I found.
on ebay, QuickBooks Pro 2002 is going for $205 to $215 approximately.
I visited the Student Book Store at a local University and they could order a full (NOT an ungrade) copy for me for $179.95 plus $5 to mail it to me, plus tax. Retail is $279.
People may want to check their local community college, university, etc, for ANY software they need. I just dropped my jaw when I saw the price (and wrote a check).
Thanks to everyone who helped (my local computer guru gave me the final lead).

Well, The Student Book Store quoted me the price for QuickBooks basic, not Pro. They also shipped the Basic version and I ended up returning it and buying on ebay, anyway. Found a “buy now” copy at $210 (includes shipping). I do think some items are priced well at student bookstores but this wasn’t one.
Sorry if I derailed anyone.

I work in the I.T. industry full-time. From my occupation, I’ve been aware that Academic pricing is almost always the cheapest way to buy software, BUT, you normally have to be a registered student for that. If you aren’t, and were able to buy software at a college bookstore without being prompted for ID, I’d chalk it up as a nice one-off. In my job, I’ve actually ordered productivity software on behalf of schools, and was always required of proof that it was indeed for a school, which usually took the form of a letter from the Principal. Just so everyone knows…
