Amazon saving college students money will replace UMass Amherst on-campus book store

Key point: 

"Students are expected to save about $400 each year with the new service."

I have fond memories of browsing in the campus bookstore during my college days. 

However, I don't remember saving a lot of money there. Even then, college bookstore prices were noticeably higher than other book-buying alternatives. (And I went to college long before the Internet.)
